GROOP & ME

As the name of my business implies . . . I don’t work alone.  I’m a Designer/Creative Director working primarily out of the beautiful wine country of Paso Robles, CA. Over the years, I’ve worked with some remarkable graphic designers, marketers, illustrators, photographers, copywriters and programmers – and as it turns out, we’ve all enjoyed working together, so several years ago, “GROOP” was formed. GROOP is a hive of independent contractors (mostly located in central and southern California) that work somewhat exclusively with each other when called upon. We use our GROOP channels to discuss ideas, communicate and keep our workflows running smoothly. The benefit is somewhat obvious – none of us have full-time employees and we all work together remotely, which means low overhead, but with the benefits of a full-service agency – and yes, we give each other priority – an essential element of being a member of GROOP.  Do we ever use talent outside of  GROOP?  Absolutely!  If you’re interested in working with us, feel free to send your resume – we’ll take a look at it collectively – If your skills fit into a project, we’ll give you a call.
