We generally work as a team of two but have an established team of graphic designers, website developers and additional contract staff available for any project. No project is too small or too large.
We also have recently added a new team member – Steven Chaisson who is a recent graduate of BCIT’s Tourism Marketing program. Steven is now working with us part time. Steven first started marketing back in high school. Working within a small team, him and his group would promote the school’s functions and products. Upon graduating, Steven took his passion to BCIT (2009-2011) where he graduated from the Tourism Marketing program. Originally interning with CK Golf Solutions in 2011, he took his experience and skills to 6 Pack Indoor Beach (2011-2014) where he currently consults on social media projects and large public events. Growing up with a large emphasis on athletics, combining the passion of sport with the interaction of social media make the perfect partnership for Steven.
