OUR STORY
SMALL STUDIO, BIG IMPACT

It begins with an old butcher’s table. No, really. An old salvaged table. A heavy, scarred thing of solid wood and steel. It was our first piece of furniture when we opened our doors in 2013, a small studio with a big heart, and it’s where we met clients eye to eye, elbow to elbow. Real people passionate about their business dreams. Small businesses. Individuals. Each hoping to reach the next level—or a Higher Rock, say. Like the coffee shop launch. Or the bridal shop expansion. The physical therapist re-brand. The personal trainer, the engineers. The churches seeking to connect and the architectural firms aiming to grow. Dozens of them, each unique, each personal.

Things have grown since then. We’ve moved to a larger location in uptown Ankeny. We have a photography loft. We have a full-size refrigerator and a salt-water fish tank. We’ve become a full-service agency, able to fulfill all types of marketing—websites, content, logos, campaigns, brochures—and blend them into a cohesive, strategic package. Today we help a broad array of clients, including large firms and some all around the country.

But our core focus is the same. The butcher’s table waits by the front door. It’s the same size and the same mission. It wears the badge of dedication and authenticity. Come pull up a chair. And let’s talk shop.

OUR TEAM
Savvy, seasoned and coffee-motivated

LANCE YOUNG
owner/creative director

ABOUT LANCE

A love of painting (wildlife in particular) brought him into this creative field. A master of design. A visual thinker. A photoshop guru. The founder of this group prefers to wear jeans—or shorts, especially if it’s because he’s hiking, camping, scaling, or leading a group of teens on a wilderness leadership adventure. Yeah, he likes that rugged stuff. Similar to navigating the wilds of a clients’ business goals and reaching an awesome summit.

LAUREN YOUNG
graphic artist/web designer

ABOUT LAUREN

Graphic design prowess. A mastermind of white space, navigation, and responsive design. An uber organizer. Those things, sure. But our resident web-spert also likes: Natural living. Country music. Clean floors. Fitness. Camping (sans spiders). Dark coffee. Cozy socks. Ice cream. Cinematography. And… baby elephants? Yep. So there’s all that. Just like a website, lots of uniques. Lots of points of interest. And she knows how to make it all click.

JANET SCHROCK
office manager

ABOUT JANET

Our official aficionado of all things dough. Pays bills, manages the office, handles clients’ accounts—and bakes a mean cookie. Don’t believe us? Try her specialty: monster cookies. Assuming you get to them before the grandkids. Why do you think we have a full kitchen in our new studio? Yeah, we’re strategic… Whether it’s crunching numbers, deadlines, QuickBooks, or cookies.
