Meet Your New Marketing Department


Matt Birchard

Owner & General Manager
Matt holds a Bachelor of Arts from Portland State University in Marketing and Advertisement Management. He worked at other Portland agencies in account service before joining the Rains team and working his way up to general manager and then owner of the agency with his name added. Matt is primarily responsible for new business and the day-to-day operations of the agency, though he continues to work with select agency accounts.

Jon Rains

Owner & Creative Director

Quite literally born into the industry, Jon has been involved in just about every aspect of marketing, advertising and printing. In the early 90’s, while still in college, Jon began building websites for clients and founded Rains Marketing. In 2011, Matt Birchard was added as a partner and our name was changed to Rains Birchard Marketing. Jon is an innovator, always trying new techniques or creative solutions to an existing problem. He’s often found with clients suggesting the “wouldn’t it be cool if…” ideas that have helped define our agency.

Justin Mitchell

Designer & 3D Artist
Justin is a rock star. He’s a talented designer that is always looking to get his hands dirty on the latest cool project. He digs playing with the latest technologies as well as more classical arts like woodworking. And he never backs down from a video game challenge or unanswered riddle.

How We Work

Marketing should be fun. Each and every one of us loves the fact that this is a creative business. Not that it’s all fun and games around here. We work hard at delivering value to our clients and customers to their businesses. We make critical deadlines. Sometimes they seem impossible tight, but with our skill and experience, we go undaunted into the task. Clients appreciate this. We’re quite proud. Rains | Birchard is a group of people committed to forging long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with our clients. Life’s too short to spend it working with or for someone or something you can’t stand. If you’re like-minded, we’re probably a good fit.

Creep on Us with Social Media

Social media has finally allowed us all to look at our friends and family’s photo albums without even knocking on the door and exchanging pleasantries.

We invite you to do the same.

Let’s Get to Work.
