Kwippe: Stunning graphic design at your fingertips

Kwippe is the “brainchild” of Stacey and Rob Reiman of Anchorage, Alaska. Stacey is a longtime software and digital product developer who saw the need for a usable and seamless art graphics experience. Combined with Rob’s “outside of the box” thinking, Kwippe has become an accessible and affordable design tool for everyone.

Kwippe allows anyone to create stunning stickers, infographics, emojis, icons, and more, simply by letting their computer do a lot of the work. They worked with the Small Business Development Center in Anchorage to fine-tune their business model, network, and take the technology industry by storm.

Reflecting on the past few months, their advisor, Lance Ahern, shared, “It has been a privilege working with Stace and the Kwippe team as they have built upon their huge success with the Monster Coding project to launch a truly unique tool which can benefit any person who needs to create new graphic content on the Internet. I expect their tool is going to be widely adopted, and I expect more great software out of this talented team in the near future.”

“I was skeptical about getting useful advice about doing our internet startup here in Alaska, and the SBDC left me surprised and delighted.  Our advisor has been extremely knowledgeable about business and about the tech industry in general; sending us links to good articles, inviting us to events here in town, and making us feel like we have real support behind us.  As starting your own internet company can be one lonely trek, it’s been truly awesome to have somebody trekking alongside us, and that’s what the SBDC has done. Thanks, guys!”
