About

Hello. We’re a team of passionate thinkers, developers, designers, social media celebrities, foodies, baseball lovers, cyclists, dog lovers and trivia geeks.

We love our clients and their brands. We spend our days brainstorming, laughing, collaborating and staring at computer screens and mobile phones most of the time.

Based in The Woodlands, Texas, We are part of The Wright Company portfolio of businesses which includes publishing, content licensing and commercial printing services. With this backdrop of resources, our bench strength reaches far beyond our years as an agency.

In over a decade of being in business, we’ve learned what matters. We value close collaboration, adapting to meet challenges, and enjoying life. We’re going to be spending a lot of time together, so let’s love the process of creating outstanding work.

We value long-term business relationships. We’re guessing you do to.

Your brand is what other people say about you when you’re not in the room.”
– JEFF BEZOS, AMAZON

Scott Barnes

CFO

In a building full of right brain-types, you might initially peg Scott as the lone lefty. With vast experience in mergers and acquisitions and financial consulting, you want Scott in the room for any meeting that involves numbers. But he is also very creative and can identify business opportunities (and estimate costs) from a mile away while plotting a multi-front strategy on how to get there. Read More about our CFO

Charles Hill

Technical Director

Charles Hill

Technical Director

If we had to summarize what Charles does in a single quaint colloquialism, it would be that he keeps the trains running on time. In this case, we are talking about multiple servers, databases, ecommerce applications, and websites which need to operate 24x7 and also be secured against intrusion. Charles was one of the first hires for the Wright family of companies, and he still brings it every day. Read More about Chill

Cody Martin

Solutions Architect

Cody's been in a long-term relationship with solving business problems and making things for over 15 years. Half entrepreneur/half engineer, he has a firm grip on how to help companies increase revenue through the effective use of technology. When he’s not delivering custom-crafted, on-demand ROI, he's playing golf, writing code, tinkering with electronics, or complaining about something not being right (or is it Wright?) He also hates puns. See what Cody’s making now

Accounting

Anna Shaver

Accounting

If we owe you money, you’ve got to get past Anna. Sure, if we have the proper support she can write a check, but how bad do you want it? And if you owe us money, well, let’s just say that Anna has a bunch of big “cousins” who all wear gold pinkie rings. ‘Nuff said.
