The Faces Behind our Success

We Get It Done.

Samantha Swanson

Creative Director

Samantha is excited to be your new point of contact for your Sales, Marketing, and Customer Experience needs. From marketing automation techniques to track your ROI in granular detail, to plans that enhance brand loyalty through positive customer experiences, Samantha can’t wait to help you reach your marketing milestones.

Samantha is a military spouse who first dipped her toes into the Marketing pond while working for an English Academy in Gunsan, South Korea. After that, she worked as the Commercial Sponsorship Coordinator for Beale Air Force Base in Northern California. While her primary role involved marketing consulting for businesses seeking to reach the military market, she also served as the point of contact for advertising and sponsorship sales, and was an Event Planner for over 15 base events, including two Air and Space Expos.

She is passionate about building relationships and helping people achieve their goals, and looks forward to meeting with you to evolve your business to the next level.

Outside of work, Samantha enjoys spending time with her two young boys and husband, preferably in the great outdoors or attending professional sporting events. While she remains true to her Minnesota upbringing during NFL season, she is a Badger and Brewer fan who will also root for the Bucks.

Cole Hintermeister

Web Ninja

Cole began his journey through Design in 2016 and received an A.S. in Web Design from Rochester Community and Technical College in 2018. He continued his academic career to obtain a B.A. in 2020 from the I-Design program at Winona State University, concentrating on Technology and Interactive Design. 

Cole comes from a family of creatives and musicians—playing drums, bass, and singing for as long as he can remember, and building or making things even longer. He enlisted in the Army National Guard in 2014 and ended his service in 2020. When not at work or exploring his own creative outlets, Cole enjoys traveling, playing video games, and helping his wife take care of animals.  

Throughout all his life experiences, he jumps on every opportunity to experience multiple facets of technology, art and design, and international culture. Because of the intercultural and interdisciplinary nature of his experiences, Cole has built a strong sense of compassion and empathy for people. He uses this to point his work—not just using his talents to create things for people, but to create things with people and helping them become comfortable working with things they may not completely understand.
