Everything You Could Ever Want to Know

In 1985, we were founded with a mission to create marketing that was smart, engaging and unexpected. Today, we work with some of the world’s biggest brands, and it’s all thanks to strategy that enlightens, creative that connects and clients who truly get it.

We are a full-service agency with expertise in foodservice, B2B and consumer marketing. We are the title member of the Marlin Network, a group of complementary creative service agencies located in the Midwest.

    Development

    The best thing about Jeremy is either his love of whiskey or his designation as an “Honorary Trooper” by the Missouri State Highway Patrol. We’re not sure if the two are related but we think either are pretty cool.

  • Emilie Harrison

  • Natalie O’Leary

    Natalie O’Leary

    Account Service

    The best thing about Natalie is that she’s a twin. The worst thing about Natalie is there aren’t just two of her… but eight. At least we think so: We’re not sure if she means eight sets of twins or if she’s a member of an octopod.

    The best thing about Vanessa is she battles on. If it’s not a competition it doesn’t matter. You got three kids, she’s got four. You got a dog, she’s got three. You have an allergy she’s got 38. Stand down loser.

  • Shelbey Stockton

    Shelbey Stockton
