Our Process

It's scientific. It's collaborative. It's never boring.

[ 01 ]



It all starts with you. We listen. And better yet, we hear what you say about your ideas, your budget, your deadlines, and your goals. Bottom line: Each client is an individual, and we’ll develop a concept just for you.

[ 02 ]



At the Rain Lab, we have a team of strategists, writers, designers, developers, marketing specialists, and yes, even our own business coach, all working together to formulate the perfect deliverable for you.

[ 03 ]



We take your ideas and goals, mix them up with our scientific process, throw in a little rain, and come up with a concept that will make you smile ear to ear, guaranteed.

[ 04 ]



Once you exclaim "I love it!", we put your print materials through our printing press, and we send your digital materials down the information superhighway. What comes back are some Rain-tastic tools to help you market your business like a pro.

The Lab

[ 107 S. Cedar St. Spokane, WA 99201 ]

When you visit our Rain Lab, two things will immediately happen.

  1. You’ll be offered a beverage—by at least three of us.
  2. You’ll blink several times, gaze around our space, and involuntarily sigh, “What a great place this must be to work!”

Allow us to confirm: It is.

Rainmaker Creative started taking Spokane by storm in January 2007, when our Right Brain Principal, Billie, walked into a bunch of her favorite small businesses with a stack of vinyl records that she’d rebranded with the Rainmaker logo and scrawled “Let’s go break some [sales] records!” on.

Hundreds of those businesses took her up on her offer, and we’ve been making it rain for them ever since.

The Team


Billie Gaura

[ Principal, Right Brain ]

As Principal, Billie is the most approachable marketing brain you'll ever meet. She tempers the whirling storm of ideas that continually converge in her brain with a borderline obsession on customer service. With over a decade of experience in one of the most daunting customer-focused jobs in the world at Southwest Airlines, Billie knows exactly how to treat her customers—and yours—in a way that gets results. With an eye for the perfect design, a head for solid marketing, and a heart for every person she meets, Billie really is the backbone of Rainmaker Creative.


Kevin Gaura

[ Principal, Left Brain ]

Kevin is the yin to the creative-type yang around here. He’s big on data entry and numbers. You know, that stuff that makes the artists cringe. Kevin’s the one who keeps the team's paperwork, contracts, and compliance in check, and he's a big part of why Rainmaker Creative runs so smoothly. Thank goodness for his Lombardi approach to business. This lifelong cheesehead always has a fun story to share, too, so any time you come in and see the green and gold Packers jacket hanging up, make sure you find him and say “Hey!” There's a good chance you'll leave with a busted gut from his latest joke!

The Culture

Our team dotes over our clients like you wouldn't believe.

We're unafraid to suggest ideas, clarify directions, and ask for help. We also work at speeds matched only by our fierce quality.

Now, about those rumors you've heard...

  • Our workspace is an open floor plan that can get as loud as the garbage disposal when you accidentally drop a fork in it.
  • We take irreverence seriously.
  • We're a combo of introverts and extroverts, but every single one of us showers our clients, guests, and each other with kindness.
  • We blow off steam by riding our orange scooter around the office.
  • Our next-door neighbor is a coffee shop. Our other next-door neighbor is a brewery. Decisions, decisions.
