More Things We're Proud Of

Meet the Makers

the many, the few

There’s not exactly eight of us. It’s more the idea of the many, together. The epic team up. The win-win.

That’s why we believe in collaboration. Its what we do best. With our clients and our peers, collaboration stretches us and our talents, making good work better. Collaboration inspires us and fuels our passions. It renews and directs.

It’s also why our team-ups often reach outside the confines of our own company roster. We like to partner up with the best professionals in the field, coming together according to each project’s needs.

designer, specializing in identity & web design

Ali Croft is a graphic designer and creative director that can speak the language of any client, big or small. Her experience spans Fortune 500 companies & large advertising agencies, all the way down to the Richmond restaurants and coffee roasters — all of whom she has partnered with to fine tune visual brands, creative and content strategies, products, and marketing. She has a knack for building airtight concepts and executing complex strategies, while managing herself and other creatives of all types. She carries a metaphorical microscope with her everywhere she goes so that she can examine a situation and make the biggest and most hairy tasks seem like the house cats that they are.
