Who We Are
Meet the Team
We’re marketers, so naturally, we ask each and every client, “What’s your competitive difference?” Once we find out, of course, we exploit it. So allow us to layout ours:
We’re Realistic. We’re Creative. We’re Black and White.
What does this mean? It means we’re realistic with our clients when it comes to budgets, timelines, perceptions, and more – but we also work as creatively as possible within any constraints in order to make our clients stand out and get results. We analyze the good AND the bad, we say it like it is, we try to avoid surprises. We operate in black and white, both literally (if you’ve seen our office space) and metaphorically.
Marketing & Design Director
A natural-born leader who founded Tulip Tree Studios with the intention of providing custom solutions to business leaders with unmatched experience, creativity, and passion. Her innate ability to maintain a fast-paced environment brewing with innovation and the highest of standards is one of the many reasons her team is considered the best talent in the industry.
Marketing Coordinator, right-hand man, jack-of-all-trades, chaos coordinator – there’s really nothing Brian won't tackle. He brings creativity, enthusiasm, and dependability to the team. Brian is detailed, organized, and proactive with each project for our clients. Numbers, analytics, and problem-solving are his specialties – making him a real asset to the Tulip Tree team.
Motivation should be her middle name – and her endless energy doesn’t even require caffeine! Crystal’s creativity and determination fuel each project from start to finish. She loves deadlines, thinking outside of the box, and accomplishing goals with her clients. Add in her integrity and positive attitude and we have the perfect formula for marketing success.
