About Us

We’re a group of consultants, creatives, and digital strategists who like to think, love to create, and get a natural high from growing your brand and business.


The short story.

In 2006, Tiffany Sauder left her job as a financial analyst to run a small creative shop. That small shop grew into a marketing consultancy—a partner that transforms brands and helps establish them as market leaders.

So why do we call ourselves a marketing consultancy and not a marketing agency?

Because we believe that making a real difference for our clients means taking a look at the big picture—and then activating to the smallest detail. Simply put, we combine the thinking of a consultancy with the executing of an agency to solve hairy problems for those we work with. We’ll ask the questions that go beyond marketing, uncovering the truth behind what is required to achieve your company’s big-picture goals.

Fast facts:

    • Six-time Inc. 5000 company
    • Headquartered in Carmel, IN, with clients nationwide
    • Winner of a growing stack of American Advertising Awards


Story, strategy, scorecard.

We believe that market-leading brands all have one thing in common: investment in smart marketing. They don’t mindlessly bounce back and forth between flavors of the week and “best practices.” Instead, they build and focus on foundational elements—story, strategy, and scorecard—that propel brands to win marketplaces.
