Meet our leaders

We're strategists, designers, writers and technologists. But first and foremost,
we're out-of-the-box thinkers.

Suzanne Popkin

Suzanne can take the thorniest problem and create an innovative strategy that exceeds business goals and creates waves of excitement in the hearts and minds of people around the planet. As in, people have been known to make life-altering decisions. Suzanne previously taught theory and writing at Stanford and the University of California, Berkeley after earning her PhD in Comparative Literature.

While Suzanne was teaching at Stanford, the university never learned what went on behind the closed doors of the classroom. Suzanne was actually teaching students how to use the power of language to create real-world unicorns and rainbows. If you ask her to explain her methodology, she’ll deny everything. We’ve tried.

Igor Gasowski

Give Igor a set of requirements and he’ll distill them to their essence and create a design that exceeds what you thought possible, both in terms of beauty and utility. Igor got his startin Europe serving clients such as Cartier and Mercedes Benz, and then went on as top creative for the launches of the After Dark flying toaster series and the You Don’t Know Jack series.

In his previous life in a galaxy far away, Igor served as a pixel police officer where he relished in dishing out punishments for designs that weren’t perfectly aligned. Sometimes you can still hear him chuckle when he sees such an atrocity.

Matt Orminski

Matt enjoys the challenge of turning ambiguity and complexity into clarity and simplicity. As a strategist and user experience designer, he is equal parts thinker and maker—and he relishes the opportunity to bring powerful stories to life. He’s worked with clients ranging from Fortune 500s to scrappy startups with the likes of Ogilvy, AKQA, and SYPartners.

When he’s not solving brand-related puzzles, Matt can be found hiking the hills of Novato with his dogs or talking sports with anyone who will listen. As a Philadelphia native, he often embarrasses his better half with his excessive Eagles fandom. Ahem, Super Bowl Champion Eagles.

Max Ellinger

Max defies labels. It’s true, he’s a full stack coder, but that’s only part of his non-label; Max designs, animates, and ideates, and that’s just for starters. Maybe magician? Max got his start at IDEO and moved on to grace various lucky startups and clients with his many talents.

When Max isn’t coding, he can be seen wandering the aisles of his favorite store, Costco. He’s such an enthusiastic fan that his co-workers talked the Costco staff into putting a Costco logo on his birthday cake, even though it’s a privilege normally reserved only for employee anniversaries. He literally cried with joy.
