Amy Oster

Account Director/Badass VP
Amy makes everyone she works with look good. No, really. She does makeup for photoshoots. Amy runs on moscato, the smell of fresh brownies, and a good text convo. Don't EVER put mocha in her coffee.
Documentaries, am I right?

Katie Hemmeter

Web Developer
Katie is actually a sentient house plant that we taught to do web development. It's pretty advanced science.... We should probably publish and get rich. BRB. PS - you can totally put mocha in her coffee.
Hufflepuff
I wish I could, but I don't want to. - P.B.
Katie's dog Lumos licking her face
Fun Fact: She can sing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" both one word ahead and one word behind the melody...and now it's difficult to actually sing it properly.

Justin Difazzio

Writer
Justin is the first person in history to actually use their English degree. We make him write everything. Except this. So it's probably poorly written. But trust us, he's like, really, really good.

Leslie Latimer

Design Director
Leslie is dope. She's like, super talented and junk. She'll design your stuff and you'll love it. For real. You'll be all, "I love it!" She likes to hand letter stuff, and it's neato torpedo. She's one cool lady. Be like Leslie.

Bikes like whoa
Baker of pies

Laura Harcar

Designer
This is some stuff about Laura. She's super duper cool. And really nice. And fashionable. Laura. She's the bee's knees. Her favorites are branding and making new logos.
Griffin and Hazel

Jamie Lee

Designer
Jamie lives in a far away land called "Iowa." Maybe you've heard of it. She's a lifelong Midwestern lady that loves learning so much she home schools her kids. If you buy her coffee make sure it's an extra large.
Nature! Yes.
Makes movies with kids
Cozy slippers and a good book

Lynn Parker

Accounting Administrator
Lynn is hands down the sweetest person you will ever meet. So put your hands up and wave them around like you just do care, because Lynn is amazing.

Darren Lilke

Video Director
Darren's mantra is "There is no such thing as bad pizza." Well, Darren, what about a tuna pizza? Huh? Tuna pizza with tapioca topping? Mmm. But honestly, Darren's a cool dude. We decided to keep him.
Mountains = happy place

All-in on Baby Yoda!

Dan Kapper

Videographer
Dan is a master storyteller. Also, he's super symmetrical. We did that thing where we cut our faces in half in Photoshop and pasted the halves together and Dan's halves match really well.
Epitome of kindness
Can do a backflip
Love/hate relationship with dairy

Zach Lynde

Videographer
Zach. If you're doing a video, you want Zach on your crew. He's baller. Although he promised us he'd bring us pizza someday and we still haven't gotten pizza...
Film nerd
Gear nut

Brian Oster

Creative Director/President
Brian always has ideas. If you need one, he'll gladly lend it! Just feed him all the coffee, and give him a challenge. He'll take care of the rest.
Loves to dissect commercials
Bad dad jokes

What does "OC" stand for?

We get this question a lot. And while the answer may be "nothing" (we swear!), we'd like to think it stands for some of the below.
