jake apostolos

graphic designer

hi! i’m jake! i found my love for graphic design when i got my first computer at the age of 13. it’s always seemed to “tickle my brain” the right way and has served as a great outlet for the creativity constantly shooting around in my mind. i have an “outside the box” mindset when it comes to creating and i love working with clients to help bring the vision they have for their brand to life.

jangelu sobida

web developer

hi! i’m jan! building websites has its own perks. for me, finding solutions for clients is a fun challenge. i always put myself in a client’s shoes to visualize what to do elegantly. personally, i would say i’m one of those ambivert types of people. i drown myself in watching movies, listening to music, and then, let’s not forget about video games. then again, when both feet are out of the house, they either go dancing, riding, hiking, or kickboxing.

jen goding

web developer

Jen-2020-Headshot
hi! I’m jen! what drew me to web development was the beautiful challenge of creating something out of virtually nothing, which is also the reason why I love cooking so much! when I’m not at work, I love to spend time with my husband and our two dogs at the dog park or working on the yard.
