The Way

We're NOT an Agency

Think of us as your strategic marketing department for hire. We actually take offense when called an ad agency or a public relations firm. Ads and PR are instruments we use, but they’re only a small portion of our arsenal. We are storytellers. Whether it’s via media relations, social media, graphics, special events or any other communications tool, we strategically relay our client's messages to targeted audiences.

We are NSTIG8 your Enterprise Value Creation Team.

We don’t care about fancy red carpet events and martini lunches, unless they’re going to help you achieve sales. We care more about bringing to light your story in a way that drives your business forward. We want to understand how and where you see your business. You have a vision. Our goal is to understand it. The following steps are the foundation of our engagement:

No.1 - Discovery
No.2 - Analysis
No.3 - Positioning
No.4 - Visualization
No.5 - Articulation
No.6 - Planning
No.7 - Deployment
No.8 - Measurement


The NSTIG8 Team (hint: it's "instigate")

We take the work seriously....ourselves, not so much. Egos won’t move a market. Effort will.

  • Marques McCammon
    Managing Director

    Marques is like the equation 2+2 =5. You know there is no way on Earth it is possible, but somehow it is. If you work at or with NSTIG8, this makes complete sense.

  • Dave Wilkey
    Principal Director

    Who is Dave Wilkey? We like to think of him as the Roger Federer of marketing. No, seriously, the guy plays more tennis than Federer & has better hair.

  • Jeff Green
    Principal Director

    Want to start something? Jeff Green is the NSTIG8er that sparks the flint. Just as cavemen came out of the darkness, so shall you.

  • Lindsay Merideth
    Assistant Creative Director

    Lindsay isn’t just a designer. She is a mom….of four. Which means she can literally handle anything, including your collateral system that needs to be translated into five languages and at the printer by lunch.

  • Mark DeMitchell
    All Things NSTIG8

    There are many stories hypothesizing where Mark came from. One of our favorites floating around is that he was raised by coyotes near the Salton Sea.

  • Cullen Bushnell
    Account Team Leader

    This cool cucumber is the oldest of 9 siblings, which is why she makes juggling flaming chainsaws look like a cake walk.

  • Kyle Horrocks
    Graphic Associate

    Kyle is a surfer from the big island. No, not Hawaii, Long Island. Throw him a shaka and he will slash your tires.

  • Carol-Ann Boisy
    Social Media Associate

    Carol might be an intern, but chances are she can run circles around your intern and turn them into her intern. In fact, she can probably trick us and make us into her intern…which is why we don’t call her an intern.

  • We’re hiring...
    Start Something With Us!

    Are you a rockstar... like Brendan Fraser? Do you want to NSTIG8 change... like Richard Gere? Polish up that resume and show us why you are the next NSTIG8er.

    We’re growing pretty fast and need talent across all communications disciplines. Writers, graphic designers, ad wizards, digital gurus, web developers. Send us your best work.
