We’re fiercely creative, proudly dependable and surprisingly nimble.
Founder / Creative Director
Brian directs the studio’s strategic and creative growth while also serving as senior designer on most client projects. Brian has worked in design and communication arts since 1996. Enthralled by the color, layout, pattern and typography of branding, Brian loves to bring this skill to clients and businesses. He brings an abundance of national branding industry experience to the table and has developed a strong foundation in interactive brand strategy. Brian enjoys connecting and collaborating with outside agencies and design studios that share similar loves in brand, ideation and interactive design. Brian lives with his wife and three kids in Lawrence, Kansas.
A long standing pro, Kyle is always ready to take on any custom website we can throw at him. His knowledge of WordPress and plug-ins is amazing. He’s detail-oriented, checking every component of a site to make sure everything is working the way it’s supposed to. Kyle is down to earth and funny to boot.
Back End Developer / Tech Lead
It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what David does—but from what we can tell he has PHP, and WordPress magic up his sleeve. Need a new plugin? No problem. Need a MySQL fix? Sure thing. Repositioning a satellite to spy? I guess you could say he’s our James Bond of code.
Front-End Developer / Designer
Jay is our front-end fix-it guy and Swiss army knife. A background in design makes his code stronger and more organized, which helps push us to new levels. Jay’s knowledge of WordPress and child themes keeps his hand in many of our projects.
With amazing layouts and an upbeat attitude, it’s refreshing to work with Amanda. She’s been in the field since 2004, sharpening her teeth on all manner of top-notch projects. Her work is exceptional, detailed and timely. In our office design battles, she usually comes out of the smoke victorious.
Shanxi (Pronounced ‘Shan’t-See’) is TriLion’s resident SEO (search engine optimization) expert. Her expertise is building strong foundations for comprehensive SEO & PPC inbound marketing. Her tool kit includes on-site optimization strategies and link building, and she works hard to enhance your online presence and brand reputation.
Maria has a calm attitude that says “I’ll get it done”. She is a great designer with a flair for infographics, layout, and integrating guidelines into anything put in front of her. Her knowledge of vector, branding, and patterns is extensive. We are happy to have her on the team this year.
Videographer / Video Editor / Animator
Tyler has the skills and turns “just OK” footage into something that sings. It only gets better when he is behind the camera. With an amazing eye for all things motion, including After Effects, we are excited about the combination of our team’s design and his work.
Kevin D. Hendricks
It started in first grade with his book Mike, The Cat. Since then, writing is all Kevin has wanted to do. He’s been doing writing for over a decade, including marketing copy, blogs, ebooks, social media, websites and more. He’s coordinated book projects, organized scattered websites and rejuvenated social media efforts. He lives in St. Paul, Minn., with his wife and two kids.
As an online veteran, Amber is completely knowledgeable of all things current (or soon to be). As our front-end development guru, her excitement for code and WordPress are second to none. Oh by the way, she does app development as well!
Books / Accounting
More than once Kim has been referred to as the oil that keeps the machine running. Accounts payable, accounts receivable, reconciliations, financials and payroll are just a few things she does around here. And it never hurts having a left brain to comment on all the creative work!
The Rest of the Pack
We work with a group of artists, developers and writers to finish the job. Some step up for a single project while others keep coming back for more. As TriLion grows, more of these contractors will become official members of the pack.
We’re proud to run with a select group of clients. Here are a few we’ve had the opportunity to work with.
