About Us and History
Lightning Bilt Creative Studio was founded in 2016 but the “Business of Creating” has been happening for a far longer time.
Since 1997, Ben Raigoza (owner & creative director) has created and sold original artwork. Some of which included custom graphic designs and logos. Ben also photographed businesses and events. And for a while, worked as a music DJ playing in clubs/bars in and around Odessa, Texas. The “Hustle” is strong!
While taking Art classes, Ben bought a computer. Figured out how to build a website and host it on his own computer to save money and promote his art online. “Being online is the future,” was a favorite saying.
Not only did Ben self-taught how to hand code custom websites, he eventually worked at a local college maintaining their websites. Eventually, Ben would work in a committe to recommend the college in replacing its entire website structure with a CMS (content management system). The prior year, Ben had already started researching CMS software and webhosting.
In recent years, the exponential growth of modern websites using responsive designs that scaled down elegantly from a desktop to a mobile phone have provided great business opportunities.
Lightning Bilt Creative Studio was officially launched November 2016. In the last few years, we have had the opportunity to work with great clients. On websites we have built, we started offering in-house photography services for their business.
Let’s work together!
We offer full website implementation including graphic design branding, photography, and video services through out West Texas and beyond.
