A Little About Us

We are a group of individuals who believe that with a strong work ethic, we can make a difference. We strive to be professional, creative, and efficient in all that we do. Each member of our team contributes in his unique way, and our personalities are complementary of each other. While some may choose to work through the night, some work normal business hours. While some lend a creative, artistic ability, some provide sustainable direction and stability.

During the second half of 2010, the state of our local economy was a common topic of discussion among my group of friends. Many of us were recent graduates entering the job force when most businesses could barely afford to stay open, much less hire new employees. After much discussion, our solution was we would help to promote those small businesses around us that our local economy needs to survive. With each project we seek to under promise and over deliver.

“We found our skills were complementary to each other’s. I have a sales background, William has his degree in design and Britt has been in IT services since we were kids. We’ve all been in leadership positions our entire lives, so we wanted to use our knowledge and experience to make an impact on our local economy.”
