We’re a team of professional strategists, creatives and consultants who love to elevate our clients’ visibility, sales and reputation in the digital world. Rather than relying on old-fashioned outbound marketing, we measure success by how well we create solutions based on what motivates our clients’ customers.
We take full advantage of the Internet and work from our own locations. Put another way, we aren’t roller-skating around in a sweet SoHo loft or a renovated warehouse in San Francisco on our breaks, so we don’t have to pass that overhead on to you. (BTW, we have nothing against roller-skating.)
We are pleased to introduce our team:
Owner and Chief Designer
Chuck has over four decades of experience in the marketing and creative fields, (he’d have grey hair if he had any hair). He worked with twin-coat rubber cement and single-edged razor blades to create artwork back in the day. Chuck’s been designing and building websites since the mid-nineties; currently specializing in WordPress, he loves to build sites and create solutions for small- and medium-sized businesses. His largest project was redeveloping a 5,000-page website for the University of Virginia. A UVA grad, Chuck is proud to call Charlottesville, VA home.
Digital Marketing Strategist
Molly has 11+ years of digital marketing experience. Before becoming a social media consultant for small- and medium-sized businesses, she was responsible for creating and implementing the digital strategy for a global durable goods manufacturer for over a decade. She particularly enjoys solving real business problems by creating valuable online content and crafting social media strategies that get results. Molly is a data-driven, results-oriented, forever-student of marketing who lives outside of Portland, OR with her husband and three boys.

Heather comes to us with over 15 years of graphic design experience.

Blogger / Strategist
Kristina’s insatiable curiosity led her to start writing about art while studying at UVA. She hasn’t stopped since and has had work published in many publications, including Thrillist, Bust Magazine, Brooklyn Magazine and Paste. She has written copy for myriad companies and start ups in the music, wellness, and experiential technology industries. Her holistic approach involves intensive research (see, history majors DO have marketable skills) and attention to detail so she can craft an arresting story about your business. A former resident of Charlottesville, Kristina now lives as a digital nomad wherever there’s wifi (and sunshine). When not tethered to her laptop, she enjoys meditation, dance, and music.
