Strategy + Emotion = Stotion

Strategy channels creativity and structures innovation.
Emotion promotes trust, fuels enjoyment and motivates action.

It takes both strategy and emotion to tell a compelling story, create a trustworthy brand, or produce a truly great product.

Our commitment to strategy and emotion is woven into every phase of our process — and our clients share that same passion. When we team up with corporations, entrepreneurs, and other bright individuals and teams, we work together to create greatness. Together, we think broadly, explore, pivot, and execute masterfully.

Not surprisingly, when something is made with strategy and emotion, that thing itself inherits strategy and emotion. That is the sweet spot. That is how something is able to be simultaneously smart and stylish, productive and enjoyable, or beautiful and useful.

That is the magic of Stotion.

Our comprehensive approach creates comprehensive results that are remarkably and repeatedly successful. That’s how we have come to work with some of the brightest minds in various industries, and that is how we continue to make new, meaningful connections every day.

The Stotion Crew

Seth

Seth

Owner, Designer

Seth’s hair started turning gray in high school; the ideas (and hair) have been flowing ever since.
As the founder of Stotion, Seth has championed a powerful approach to design thinking and strategy that embraces business strategy, technological innovation, and behavioral psychology. His unique approach has proven valuable to billion dollar companies such as Google, Samsung and AmericanExpress. Seth’s work has garnered awards from AIGA and his custom fonts and imagery have been licensed by A&E Television Networks, Major League Baseball, and others. When he isn’t working, Seth likes to make all sorts of things —but he also enjoys collecting entomological treasures and exploring the world with his beloved family.

Hunter

Hunter

Designer

No, Hunter is not a droid — but he is a machine. A design machine. Hunter has a passion and reputation for making things useful. He has been instrumental in the design and development of several large corporate websites, complex web-based healthcare systems, and innovative mobile apps. Hunter is a wizard at creating helpful automations and dependable systems. If you see Hunter in the wild, he will likely be wearing something over his ears; either for drumming to heavy metal music or discharging firearms at shooting ranges. He is also a casual gamer who loves hanging out with his wife, son, and Siberian Husky.

Matt

Matt

Designer

Matt is a well rounded creative that is bursting with new ideas. After school, he honed his skill and passion for conceptual design by designing book covers at Penguin Random House in Manhattan. Since then, he has gone on to thrive in user experience, branding, copywriting, and strategic messaging. Matt is an empathetic designer who finds clever and smart ways to make his designs enjoyable to use. He is a relatively good natured fellow, but cannot tolerate criticism of Tom Brady. For funzies, Matt likes to draw pictures, watch and play sports, and blow bubbles with his adorable little family.

Suzanne

Suzanne

Project Manager

When she first sprouted out of college, Suzanne worked as a landscape designer for a hoity-toity landscape management company. Over time, she grew into the neighboring field of project management where she has put down her roots and bloomed. Suzanne governs the team like a wise Ent, and tends to client needs with remarkable care. She can bike 100 miles like it’s nbd, speaks fluent Spanish, plays the violin, and can tell the difference between a spruce and a pine from a 10th of a mile away.

Alan

Alan

Developer

Alan has been coding software since around the time that Hypercolor shirts were a thing. Not content programming lo-fi games on his trusty TI-82 during calculus class, he moved on to bigger and better computers, eventually coding Perl, Java, and LAMP-stack, both front and back, on Windows and Mac. Most days he can be found walking and working at his treadmill desk. He also enjoys writing. Probably too frequently. Yes, that sentence was 100% adverbs. This sentence no verb. Perhaps most importantly, Alan is one degree from Kevin Bacon. Mmm, bacon.

Randy

Randy

Driver

Over the course of his career as a pilot, Randy has been to every US state except one. Randy is a trustworthy and dependable worker with tremendous drive. All of his trips as a pilot have been safe and enjoyable, except for one. One day, he hopes to participate as a pilot in an airshow and strike oil in the Rocky Mountains. Although he does not work at a computer, Randy used a computer before anybody else on the team was even born, except one.

The Stotion Culture

Stotion is something of an “un-agency” (not to be confused with a “nun agency”)

That is to say – there are some things that make us not-so-agency like. Compared to other agencies, we are small. We stay that way on purpose. We value the agility and responsiveness of our dedicated team. When we look to hire somebody new – we are extremely particular because not every talented designer will fit here. We also hold to the importance of a good work/life balance to the benefit of ourselves and the work we produce.

Some noteworthy perks: Monthly service projects. Sit-stand desks. Nap room. Flex time. Regular professional massages. Expert Trainings. Weekly team lunches.

This is a unique, collaborative environment where we all helps each other progress, learn, have fun and do great work.

If you think you may be a great fit here, reach out and let us know. We are always looking to connect with the best and brightest.
