Wrap Up

2023 was a year to remember. Like the year before it, 2023 was filled with growth and reflection. As our 9th year in business we're on a continued approach to create our best work and be early adopters of technology. Check out some of our projects below!

1 Christmas Party / 7 websites launched / 18,170 Photos Taken / 5 Games of PacMan / 15 LinkedIn Posts

7 Websites Launched

We thought 2022 was a big year, but 2023 turned out to be just as huge! We had 5 fully-custom design and development jobs that included clients like Volume and Stone Cipher. In addition, we also built 2 e-commerce websites on Shopify and a Wordpress site for Fortuna Fine Arts.

18 Total Awards Won

If there are two things we love in this world it's, creating work that connects folks; and making our partners happy. When we do those things AND receive recognition from peers in the form of awards? - well that's just the cherry on top. Our team is honored and proud to have received multiple design awards this year for some of our favorite projects.

Expanded Service Lines

As a creative agency with a focus on purpose-driven brands we've had the opportunity to work with some pretty amazing CPG companies. Due to the strong relationships we fostered with our brands - they wanted help in other facets of their business beyond identity and websites.

What did we do? We hired talent that could bring our brands the same quality service they've grown accustomed to.

Introducing Bennett Queen - Our Digital Marketing Specialist.

Bringing on Bennett meant that we could help build our brands through additional digital marketing services. Bennett cut his teeth in a number of marketing roles most recently as a freelance digital marketer. When we started looking for a performance marketer last year, Bennett reached out and the rest is history.

With his addition we've expanded into:

Email Marketing

Search Engine Optimization

Ads Management

Building Stronger Relationships

Our team may be small but we are mighty! Did you know that 80% of our employees have been with us for 3+ years? And our newest employees are here for the long haul too.

We're working on building a strong culture of open-minded creatives that are passionate about building better brands. To get even closer we had two retreats to enjoy each others company - totally unplugged.

Custom Mug & Coffee

A Gift From Commmence

Coffee runs hot and dark through our veins. We've created logos, optimized websites, and designed packaging for multiple coffee brands, so this holiday season we decided to give our partners something to sip on. A custom roast from Commence Studio and a hand-thrown ceramic coffee mug to go with it. Everything in this project from the stamp on the mug to the label on the coffee bag was designed, packaged and sent in-house. We hope you love it!
