Our Passions Drive Us, Our Vision Guides Us

There’s no thrill greater than bringing to life a vision shared by many but realized by few. Through our hard work and dedication to our crafts, we’ve built an agency team with decades of combined expertise and passion in an ever-changing industry. Until the artificial intelligences come for our jobs, this is as good as it gets.

Trey Kauffman – Developer & Partner

For years I pushed back against the constant reminders I was born into the dreaded coveted millennial generation. Yet time and time again, as I soaked in the knowledge offered to me by mentors and supervisors, I noticed a consistent pattern evolving: The value of a well-grounded relationship far outweighed that of a one-time sale.

My focus through my more than 10 years of marketing and sales experience has been to become as valuable an asset to my company and peers as possible. That focus was easily translated into my own ventures after realizing I would never find the type of satisfaction and fulfillment I wanted working in the corporate world. My resolution quickly became to bring dedication and business ethics to life through his company—Slantics.

Ashly DePew – Strategist & Partner

I have had a passion for building brands since beginning my career and have worked directly with over 100 local and national brands, including Planet Fitness, Workout Anytime, Anytime Fitness, OrangeTheory, 9 Round Fitness, Massage Envy, and Title Boxing Club.

After identifying a passion for helping small business owners succeed, I started a consulting agency where I worked primarily in franchise marketing working with both franchisees and franchisors. I worked one-on-one to develop marketing solutions to support and grow their brands. From there, I then joined a digital marketing agency where I provided clients with digital services, including SEO & local search marketing, reputation management, social media marketing, SEM (paid advertising) and more.

Taking my experiences as the director of marketing for a large brand, and a consultant and digital strategist for SMBs and franchisees, I had a vision. I believe that each company, regardless of size, deserves a Chief Marketing Officer and a full-scale marketing team. We have created a company which provides exactly that. We take a no red-tape, it will be trending tomorrow and we will implement it today, approach. We have identified marketing professionals in the top of their field and we have formed an all-encompassing marketing team that works with SMBs and large corporations alike delivering custom, premium marketing strategies.

Michelle Merz – Designer & Partner

With nine years of graphic design and branding experience and a degree in interactive media design, I have created works for an array of individuals, companies and organizations. I am obsessed with qualitative research and aesthetic design. The challenge of integrating the psychology of design and marketing, user friendliness and creativity to produce designs that are both memorable and effective is something I thrive on. Strategically, my work aims to elevate brand offerings and strategy by pinpointing audience appeal and distilling core messaging down to its purest and clearest visual form.

When I’m not in front on my computer. I can be found drinking copious amounts of coffee, playing sports, spending time with my two children and seeking out the best tacos and beers Columbus has to offer.
