The Digital Attic Story.
Established in 1991.
We were around before websites were even a thing!
Digital Attic started alllll the way back in 1991. We aren’t kidding when we say we were around before websites were a thing. We started out as a video animation company and quickly saw the value in digital marketing. We built our first website in 1995 and have seen the world of digital marketing and technology development from the ground up.
Where does the name Digital Attic come from?
Digital Attic was founded by a successful Central Valley business owner named Ed Cutler (remember Cutler’s Super Store for the locals). Troy Vasquez joined the team at the age of 2 (actually 15) as an eager intern shortly after Digital Attic opened.
Troy and Ed were far ahead of the times, working together to learn the world of animation, video production, and web development. Ed being the older of the two and coming from a generation of classic technologies and Troy the younger bringing new technology to the table lead to them to decide Digital Attic would be the perfect name!
