Autumn Heisler

Autumn is a creative problem solver, through and through. She’s passionate about combining sharp design elements with witty writing to tell a brand’s story, and a degree in advertising helps her do just that. Despite being a Cincinnati transplant, our local creative community has claimed a piece of her heart. She volunteers for AIGA Cincinnati, serving as their co-president and heading up their women’s leadership initiative (#WomanUp). Autumn loves spicy food and lives for dogs, of which she has three. She thrives on new challenges and caffeine. Lots and lots of caffeine.



Blake A. Galloway

At his core, Blake is a dreamer. His diet of Walt Disney, Tim Ferris and Youtube tutorials continue to sculpt him into the entrepreneurial dreamer he is today. As a designer, Blake has worked on creative for Disney, Epipheo, and  Datecrawl. Some of Blake's specialties include Visual Storytelling, Motion Design, and UX/UI. When Blake is not dreaming up new ventures, he enjoys making dinner with his wife and posting doodles and stupid cat videos on Instagram.
