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.

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.

Kelly Reck

Kelly is the sort of project manager who not only keeps everyone on track, but knows how to make things simpler and much, much more delightful. Or rather, much, much, MUCH more delightful. Kelly previously imbued her projects with organization and joy at various start-ups around the Bay Area.

When Kelly isn’t spreading positive energy around the Boldium office, she is usually at a wedding. Indeed, rumor has it that Kelly is going for the Guinness Book of World Records for most weddings attended in one year. We’re hoping she just has a lot of friends.
