These are the dreamers, and the doers.
Lisa and design go way back to where she
began exhibiting a precocious artistic talent in elementary school by covering
sheets and sheets of paper with stick people; lean little alienesque beings
with large saucer eyes. Make of that what you will. She is a native of Washington
DC's suburbia (an area which, as we all know from watching "Independence
Day", is no stranger to alien visitation). Luckily, Lisa managed to
elude the cunning extraterrestrials long enough to garner a BA in Visual
Communications from Mt. Vernon College and the American University, an internship
at the Smithsonian (designing event publications), and nearly ten years
of professional Graphic Design experience in the national capitol area.
She enjoys painting, photography, and Tabasco sauce. She also enjoys the
beach and Tabasco sauce. It's a good thing she was born an Aquarius because
she's going to need the water to put out the fires from all that Tobasco
Now, a few words from Lisa herself...
"If you can dream it, than you can do it!"
Lou is the veritable master of all trades.
He's a Web guru, musician, father and hair-farmer, just to name a few. We
Cascading Style Sheets, Flash, Java or HTML expertise, he's our man. Lou
began his affair with the Web way back in 1995 (like dog-years, Internet
years are about 7 to 1) when he sat on the Utah Valley State College Web
Committee and played Webmaster for the UVSC Fine Arts Department. Lou currently
serves as the Chairperson for a local chapter of the International Webmasters
Association, and for two weeks of every year he disappears into the ether
to suck up the latest and greatest in Web Development Knowledge at a variety
of seminars and conferences around the country.
We asked Lou to say a few words, and this
is what he said...
"It's not a fad.
It's not going to go away. It's not a dustball under your couch. You can't
bully it. There is no removing it. You cannot regulate it. It has no boundaries.
Learn to respect it and...never, ever underestimate it. The Internet."
is design. A BFA graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University, Kelli's
strong suit is Illustration. Her range of skills and experience include
online, corporate identity, brochure, and magazine design. She keeps up
with what's hot and what's happening in the design world at her monthly
meetings of the Art Director's Club of Washington DC (very "panache"
of her). You want stuff illustrated? Kelli can do. You want stuff laid
out? Kelli can do. You want to impress your friends and colleagues with
the groovy look of your cool new website and corporate identity kit? Kelli
can do. You want pink and yellow flames painted down the side of your new
VW Beetle? Don't look at Kelli.
Talk to the people, Kelli...

Director of Marketing and Sales
Have you ever been cruising down the information
superhighway -- you got the tunes playing in the CD drive, the breeze from
the office air-conditioning blowing through your hair, you're owning the
net, really owning it -- and there by the side of the road is this
cute brunette pasting up ads on electronic billboards and you lose control
of your hard drive and crash? Remember the last time that happened? Very
embarassing. Come on, admit it. Well, that was Brenda, our bilingual Mistress
of Marketing, out there drawing them in. Brenda's qualifications stem from
years of experience in said field with a local Interactive Media Giant (who
shall remain nameless lest we get sued for using their very well known
name to our benefit). At nameless Interactive Media Giant, Brenda has specialized
in selling online advertising to Fortune 500 companies, also vague and nameless
for the same reason. She can put these skills to use for you, and you, too,
can be vague and nameless...no, no, that's not right...
