Ralph Frisina Principal
I don’t pretend to know your business. I’ll approach your project with the premise that your knowledge combined with my experience and ability will produce work that exceeds all expectations. What I do know is creative marketing. I’m a thirty-year veteran of strategic creativity who happens to believe that draftsmanship is integral to concept development.
If you’re passionate about your business, you’ll know your product and challenges better than I do. In fact, you probably have great ideas about how to go to market. All you need is a smart creative team that’s willing to listen and produce results.
David T. Morrison Creative
David is the smartest and most meticulous executioner I’ve ever known. From a well-designed web interface to a sixty-foot tradeshow wall, it will be executed flawlessly. He’s the kind of guy who has answers to questions that you hadn’t thought to ask. Chances are, he already knows the specifications of your job.
Erin Papa Creative
Erin throws things in her spare time. Nice things. Years ago, when I first met her she was throwing an earthenware bowl on a wheel. A thorough understanding of one art form feeds the understanding of another. Erin is also a master of the conceptual visual. In simple terms, she “gets it,” as her typography and layouts attest.
Annette Ragan Creative/Writer
For over a decade, interrupted by the occasional hangover, Annette and I have fought over and created great work. Together we’ve won hundreds of awards. She’s the Godzilla to my Rodan, and frankly I find it ironic that I can’t find the words to express her talents. But if I did, she’d rewrite them.
Joshua Jevons Creative
Josh is an icon among his icons. His uncanny knack for typography and visual simplicity within the confines of a design is unsurpassed, while his landscape photography adds another dimension to his natural skills (this website is crawling with his photos). I hired Josh when he graduated from RIT but he’s remained a versatile and ardent student of the design field ever since.
CHRISTOPHER FRISINA Creative
Don’t let the last name fool you, Chris is a talented designer and illustrator despite his uncle’s dubious instruction. From an intricate line drawing to a dramatic photo, Chris is keenly aware of what moves an audience and applies his skills with “relative” ease.
Mark McCarty Photographer
Aside from being an eagle scout, semi-professional physicist and connoisseur of early British punk, Mark is what most people would call a nice guy. We’ve created thousands of images together and traveled to the far reaches of the planet, throwing caution to the wind in pursuit of great pictures. Can’t live without him.
Rachel Melendez Mabee Social Media
Rachel is a driver. She’s also a putter and a chipper. She’s the new kid on the block, with over ten years of experience developing communication strategies for national organizations. Her forte beyond the golf course is promoting brand awareness through social media. But with a wealth of experience in traditional advertising, she knows that it’s as much about what as how.
JENNIFER KNODLER SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT, KEY LIME INTERACTIVE / STRATEGIC PARTNER
Who, what, where, how. When I need to know anything about anything I skip Wikipedia and go directly to Jen. An engineer, a visionary and leader at Key Lime Interactive, Jennifer knows research and its impact on user experience inside out. To Jen there’s no such thing as TMI.
JAY SHIELDS OWNER, STELLWAGON MEDIA / STRATEGIC PARTNER
Jay loves casting for a production. He also loves jigging, trolling and hanging precariously off a boat in pursuit of incredible footage. A master of inbound video, Jay’s forte is creating films that entertain with just enough sell to keep the SM hits pouring in.
RJ Casey Owner, Redtree Productions / Strategic Partner
Every time I’ve worked with RJ he’s proven that production is not just logistics, it’s an art form. It’s combining the right skillsets and resources to match a client’s vision. Whether you need to soften light over an entire city block in LA or create an endless field of deflated basketballs, RJ will make it picture perfect.
Christian Hoagland Owner, Beyond Our Reality / Strategic Partner
Christian is a licensed captain, a sailor and the guy behind the camera. Not surprisingly, his forte is a unique ability to see the big picture. It’s not just what he brings to a set, it’s what he gives. We’ve filmed everything from NBA stars to vultures. He’s the first guy to expect more from himself — and the last guy to wrap.
