Our roots are in the creative. It is the heart & soul of what brought us into the marketing world – and our creative is pretty darned okay. We are not just artsy-fartsy.

Jen, one of our co-owners, had the privilege to work in a Main Street community as the Design & Marketing Coordinator. She grew to love the amazing community and people she met through the national, state, and local organizations. When Jen decided to step out on her own and try to grow a freelance business that her husband, Dustin, had started, she worked with many types of organizations doing everything from print design to building websites. But something was missing, and it was the call of Main Street. Having the honor of designing and building a revamped website for her former Main Street community (Downtown Lee's Summit Main Street) got the ball rolling, and the duo realized that this is where the business should head. Full steam ahead!

When we look in the mirror...

We reflect decades of award-winning experience in design, advertising, marketing & strategy. We’ve rolled up our sleeves working on massive projects with the world’s most recognizable brands. However, as mavericks, we found our hearts are most happy helping Main Street communities reach for the moon (and reach the right audiences).

We are mavericks. We buck the way things have always been done (and as you can see, we don't take ourselves or life too seriously). We question the why and understand the how. Our experience drives us to ask better questions, create better solutions and seek different perspectives. Our methods and process will get your website rocking.

We see the big picture. A lot of nuances make up your organization. We get that. It is all too easy to get lost in the details and lose sight of the big picture. We are here to help guide you through those rapids. You are too busy running committee meetings and meeting with local officials to learn the ins and outs of building and designing a website. That's where we come in!

So many Main Street communities have websites that talk about their organizations, but don't offer the information people are seeking. We use data-driven techniques to  ensure that visitors get what they are looking for, and also create a beautiful, branded website. We do what makes sense, then we make it look good.

The extraordinary team we use to get this done is the Maverick Collective.
