Exceptional is our only rule.

We’ve been around the block (several blocks, actually) and approached marketing from many different angles. What have we learned? That what may work for one client, may not be the best strategy for another, and sometimes you just have to mix things up.


Our standards lie in our process, our work ethic, our commitment to staying fresh, being unconventional, and finding creative solutions to fit clients’ unique needs, delivering results, and - above all - doing the right thing. Being exceptional is our only rule. Transparency, honesty, and integrity are paramount. Knowing we’ve done right by you helps us sleep at night and stay on top of our game.


Brave. Bold. Brilliant.

Carol Sours

A lifelong passion for storytelling evolved into a successful marketing career for Carol. She is a writer and word nerd (she’s cool with that) who’s been known to obsess over a tagline for days (or weeks, or months). Carol is always digging deeper for the backstory to find that unique angle that will give clients the edge. Then her strategic marketing and brand development skills go into high gear to create power-packed plans for bottom-line results. Carol’s backstory started in Kansas City radio. Fast-forward to more recent history in agency VP and Chief Brand Strategist roles. If she’s not cranking out a marketing plan, she’s probably throwing horns at a concert. But don’t ask her to sing - that would be a big mistake.
