WHO WE ARE
Hello, we are Ryan and Jeff, founding partners at Evolve Brand Studios. We are many things, but most importantly, we are two regular guys with a passion to create really cool stuff. Our experience and backgrounds span a wide range of disciplines from traditional marketing, to design, photography, and videography. We’ve had opportunities to work with both large organizations and small startups.
Our working history began at a protective gear and boutique apparel company serving the baseball industry. Our love of sports and the athletes we served helped to drive us in our creative pursuit. It was when the time came to pursue other opportunities that the idea of Evolve Brand Studios was born. We believe in, and go to bat for our ideas. Embracing this mentality and leveraging what we had learned from past experiences we shifted our focus to something bigger... an opportunity to share our knowledge and skillsets to help others achieve their goals.
Hi! I grew up in the Atlanta-area, and still live there to this day with my wife (Katie), and two dogs (Kara & Zoey). I'm a huge sports fan/comic book nut and enjoy spending my free time on the golf course, fishing, doing yardwork and spending time with friends & family. I am a marketing grad. from the University of Georgia and my working background lies in that same field. I have been fortunate in my career to have worn a lot of different hats in equally as many areas of business (traditional/digital marketing, design, product development, etc.). I look forward to hearing YOUR story!
Hi! I’m Jeff. I live in Athens, GA with my wife and two children. When not with family, I am out riding my bike or building a new one. I also enjoy screen printing, photography, and woodworking. For the last 15-20 years, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my career in photography, design, and marketing. I look forward to getting to know you/your brand’s story and helping to take your business to the next level."
What it looks like to work with us...
Saying hello is just the first bit. While we are in the business of marketing and design, we are also in the business of cultivating relationships. We strive to truly understand our client’s DNA in order to allow us to craft creative solutions that our skills and resources then bring to life. In short, our initial discussion(s) help us to understand how to adapt our workflow you achieve your goals and remedy your pain points.
The rubber meets the road, and our vision starts to become reality. We take the strategy that we have developed and bring it to life using all of the skill sets and tools within our arsenal. We do this through the expression and combination of photography, design, and/or marketing initiatives. This is the culmination of our understanding and planning where visuals and/or deliverables begin to take shape.
It's showtime! All of the hard work pays off and the final product is revealed and/or strategy is executed in its intended final form. This is followed by a sort of informal project evaluation... What did we do well? What adjustments can we make in the future to help you improve results even further? What new goals need to be set to keep you moving forward?
Taking into account what we learn from our initial talks, we dig deeper with additional diligence (study the competition, look at trends, etc.) and ask the client questions to understand what has and hasn’t worked in the past. With this full download of your brand and goals in place, we lay out plans for how we can successfully move forward together. We share this strategy with you and collaborate to ensure synchronization.
This is a transitional state between creation and execution. It is a collaborative time where we present to the client the work we’ve created, receive comments and/or revisions, and make any and all requested adjustments. At this point we may also work in tandem with outside services like web development teams, printing services, etc. to help facilitate any necessary asset-to-medium synthesis or production of physical materials.
Some of the rockstar folks that we've worked with...
