I spent many hours watching super heroes on Saturday mornings as a kid. The Justice League, G Force: Guardians of Space, Voltron, and, yes, even Mister T and his mystery-solving gymnastics team, were among my favorites as I sat in front of the TV and imagined being part of the action.
The day of dreaming up that special super hero team is over! I now live among some pretty awesome individuals that make up the Jumpstart: Design, Development and Brand crew. Bryan and I started this company nine years ago as just the dynamic duo of design and development. Now, our projects have become bigger and more multi-faceted, so we knew it was time to pull out the “bat signal” and find some other talented professionals to unite with.
Bryan Dion: The Programming Guru
Bryan has the enlightened ability to make any run-of-the-mill website an amazing online Nirvana. When he is not programming, he is meditating on long motorcycle rides or going to the gym to keep up with the super sexy look he’s got going on in the photo (wink).
Bryan’s Super Powers
Mobile Responsive Websites, Shopping Carts Systems, Customized Content Management Tools, Online Registrations, Mobile Apps, and Social Media Integration.
Robin Towle-Fecso: The Creative Ninja
I have been trained by many senseis on the art of print and web design (karate chop). I am starting to receive my "belts” in Illustration, but I know I have a long way to go. I also write for a fitness and lifestyle blog, called Runitlikeamom, and have recently stepped out onto the soccer field again for some pick-up down time.
Robin’s Super Powers
Brand Campaigns, Marketing Strategist, Logos, Illustrations, Website Design, Mobile Responsive Designs, Mobile App layouts, Brochures, Print Collateral, Trade Show Booth Designs, and Social Media Branding.
Julia Forneris: The Copy Crusader
Julia discovered her love for the written word when she would catch herself proofing birthday cards. After she relocated to Connecticut, Julia was on a mission to forge a mutually beneficial partnership that she found with Jumpstart! When it is time to put down the pen, Julia picks up a good book. Running is another outlet for her (the Crusader and the Ninja occasionally combine their super adventures with some road races).
Julia’s Super Powers
Copywriting, Copyediting, Proofreading, Press Release, Web and Print Content Features, Newsletter Development, and Social Media Content Strategist.
Gina Morgan: Quality Assurance Secret Agent
Gina spies and zaps the blips and bleeps that even us super heroes miss, from time to time. Her laser-sharp eye has also developed some top-secret reports and presentations that we can’t mention to you…yet (chuckle). Gina lives a double agent life. By day, she is super mom to twin three-year-olds and a kindergartener cheering on the Red Sox, and by night, she works for Jumpstart…hey, where she go?
Gina’s Super Powers
Quality Assurance, Copyediting, Case Studies, Company Reports, Branding Presentations, and Strategist.
Rachael Shaw Lamphier: The Video Vixen
Rachael will charm you with her kick-ass creativity and video prowess. The strategic alliance with Rachael’s company, Conjoined, has made Jumpstart stronger. With this two-company mega-robot, we can tackle the big clients and give them the brand of their dreams. When Rachael is not saving the world from bad videos, she is hanging with her two adopted Siamese cats and rooting for the Baltimore Orioles (oh no, there maybe a baseball rivalry, side-plot story brewing – stay tuned). She is also an avid collector of tattoos, nail polish art and mashed potatoes in gravy.
Rachael’s Super Powers
Film Production, Producing, Talent Agent, Directing, Motion Graphic Editing, Videos, Commercials, Advertising, and Social Media Strategist.
So, here we are, the super hero team of Jumpstart: Design, Development and Brand. All of us are individuals, but we unite together to help conquer the forces of bad branding everywhere! We all adhere to an organized process throughout each project, which gives the client an overall super product. Continue to read our blog posts as they develop and if you ever find yourself in need of our super services, you know where to find us...
