Head Honcho & Creative Genius
As a small business owner (and founder!), Jen splits her time between being a creative director, marketing strategist, business visionary, HR manager and bookkeeper. And she loves every minute it. (Who knew creative people could learn to appreciate Quickbooks?)
Jen is a 2005 graduate of the prestigious S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University and has worked as the lead designer on big-name accounts like Verizon Wireless, Hyatt, Starbucks and Ocean Spray in her past life at advertising agencies around Cleveland. In addition to collecting quite a few accolades for her own work, she’s also been a two-time judge of the Webby Awards and a repeat speaker at several conferences, including HOW Design Live.
Digital Marketing Director & Pizza Party Pro
As our Digital Marketing Director, Patrick focuses on creating and executing integrated marketing strategies for our amazing clients—whether that’s building a powerful website and leveraging it for long term success, creating an inbound marketing campaign or developing a brand strategy.
He’s a “digital native,” but is seldom seen without a notebook (and coffee) in hand—old habits die hard. Equal parts brand and marketing strategist, sales professional and pizza expert (eating it, not making it), Patrick is a tech-obsessed marketing pro who is constantly thinking of big-picture ideas and tactical ways to implement them. His philosophy on pizza is simple—no piece left behind.
Project Manager & Cat Whisperer
As Kiwi Creative’s project manager, Colleen carries a boatload of marketing experience and a background in web and digital project coordination. Her main goal is communication—to make sure our team and our clients know what’s needed to complete a project successfully.
Colleen is a graduate of Kent State with a love of discovering tasty, friendly townie taverns wherever she goes. A nerd at heart, Colleen has a love-love relationship with all things Harry Potter, crime drama and horror movie. She’s also the ultimate cuddle-forcing cat lady.
Graphic Designer & Bicycling Enthusiast
Our graphic designer, Jennifer, is a proud typography nerd with a passion for all things related to design. She loves a creative challenge and will make sure your projects look amazing down to the smallest details.
When not designing, Jennifer enjoys drinking a lot of coffee, hiking the Akron Metroparks and biking. She recently adopted a Boston Terrier, Winnie, and is the #1 fan of the Gilmore Girls.
Web Developer & Golden Retriever Dad
Ryan has been fascinated with technology for as long as he can remember, which has translated into a successful career as a web developer and usability expert. In addition to being a wizard of WordPress websites, he’s also well-versed in search engine optimization and other digital marketing tactics that are crucial to creating a well-rounded website design.
When he’s not in front of his computer, Ryan enjoys being outdoors and spending time with the world’s cutest 2-year-old Golden Retriever: Layla. He’s also a self-proclaimed amateur chef, which is amusing considering he’s a pretty picky eater.
