Our Clients Say...

The Group

Phyllis Horne Bio Photo
Phyllis Horne / Owner + CEO

“Years of writing ad copy and producing commercials helped me prepare to succeed in the advertising business!” While she likes to play it down, we like to brag about Phyllis’ diverse career as a journalist, a writer, a film and video producer/director and even as a songwriter in the music business. After all, how many advertising agency CEOs also wrote songs recorded by Willie Nelson? She’s also well-known for her infectious enthusiasm — especially at six o’clock in the morning!

Steve Krouse / EVP + Chief Creative Officer

“I just like regular stuff. You know? I don't like weird food or funky furniture or anything that's not, you know, normal.” With an eye for detail and a knack for getting the design just right, thankfully for us, Steve is abnormally talented and creative!
