About Us

creative folks in Austin

We create and build brands, immersive and innovative web and mobile responsive sites, apps and branded experiences to increase clients’ awareness and image.

Our award-winning collaborative work has been led by Michael Harman since it was founded in 2012. We’re small and nimble, but sensibly scalable using trusted creative partners here in Austin, TX and scattered around the country. At the drop of a hat, we can pull in additional art directors, designers, writers, strategists, data analysts, account and project managers, developers, SEO experts, analytics gurus, and illustrators to build a team for your unique job.

This model ensures that every client’s job gets the right talent for their needs, not a team that made sense for a job of the past.


The creative process is one that should be structured, but loose enough to fit each engagement in a unique case-by-case way. When we have time, we like to follow a well thought out plan, but there are plenty of times where process goes out the window when we need to be nimble and get work done quick.

Listen & Learn

We don’t like to think of ourselves as just an agency, but an extension of our clients’ (company) teams. Before we do any work, we like to sit down and get to know our clients as partners and friends. We listen to their brand story, what they’ve done right, done wrong, and what their goals and aspirations are for our engagement. This is essential for us to build the perfect creative team and craft the perfect strategy for the job at hand.

Get On the Same Page

To ensure that both strategy and execution are well-informed and positioned to be successful, we’ll produce a creative brief and project plan that our clients agree is accurate so there’s no valuable time wasted by working in the wrong direction. This keeps everyone’s expectations aligned as we move into production.

Creatives Create

With an informed plan of attack, the team can get going on creative concepts and design. We’ll work to produce the most beautiful and engaging solutions for your brand.. Whether it’s a logo, advertising campaign, responsive website, mobile app, or just a photo, we’ll iterate with our client partners to make sure the final deliverable is relevant, engaging, and a smashing success.

Launch & Grow

Once we’ve launched our work into the world, we’ll take a step back and analyze how it’s performing. Launching a brand, ad campaign or website is just the beginning – now it’s time to feed it and watch it grow. In today’s ever-evolving world, clients and brands can’t afford to stop being relevant.
