We are an award-winning and versatile full-service creative firm based in Southern California, specializing in branding, marketing and design. Our team develops comprehensive brand, marketing, and outreach campaigns to help clients communicate the essence of their companies and organizations.
Through proven strategies and unique and visually innovative ideas, we develop everything from the name of a project to a full-scale promotional campaign, and every touch point in between. 789 excels at finding optimal and budget-conscious strategies and designing unique, engaging and often surprising in-person experiences. With each client, we strive to create moments that move people on an emotional level, that function flawlessly and leverage the clients’ brand effectively.
We believe in the importance of standing out in a crowd. The reason: now more than ever before, people are faced with having too many choices. If a project, organization, or brand is going to have its best chance for success, people need to be given a reason why to pick “this” over “that”. Too often, businesses simply employ cookie-cutter solutions for their communication challenges, thinking what’s worked for others should work for them. But great consideration should be taken as it pertains to how you are perceived. The more generic a brand becomes, the more we disable our consumers’ ability to stand apart from the next guy. And being different just for the sake of it isn’t compelling either; it just creates more noise.
Basically, it’s translating your philosophy and identity into every medium known to man. We partner with our clients and manage every aspect of their brand identity through advertising, design, and media with measurable results.

Nourish Innovation

We strive to be on the cutting edge of technology, and that’s why we work with some of the most innovative and creative minds in the business. We plan to Nourish Innovation by teaming up with clients who aim to create solutions, build technologies, expand information and advance the digital world.

Empower People

No business could succeed without the people behind it. Our goal to Empower People comes from the desire to lift them up, and work toward success through thought leadership, business development, relationship-building, and community connection and visibility.

Reshape Environments

We only have one planet to live on (for now), and we are thrilled to support clients that are protecting and preserving the environment. By working together, we hope to help Reshape Environments through community outreach, education, forward-thinking technology and development, and community service.

Deliver Change

There are so many issues facing our world today, locally and globally. And we want to be part of the solution. In order to Deliver change, our team works with clients that are taking steps to better the community around them, whether it be through healthcare, environmentalism, crisis assistance, animal rescue and welfare, or community activism and awareness.

Raymond is our resident Photon Striker, ready to take on any and every video project we send his way. From motion graphics to corporate, and social media to long-form creative, Ray has a knack for capturing everything our clients ask for and projecting it efficiently through his creative lens. With a background in video news and journalism, Ray is a natural at telling detailed stories, and is a great fit with the rest of our creative team. When he’s not rolling, Ray enjoys listening to music and cheering on his favorite soccer teams.

Kimberly has first-hand experience in strategic marketing, communications and project management. With a degree in journalism and a passion for film, dance, and the arts, Kimberly is our Project Choreographer and one of our resident creative writers. From concept, to paper, to clients… Kimberly orchestrates it all with a calm, creative confidence exuding a positive project culture. In her off-time, she enjoys brushing up on her pop culture and trivia knowledge, teaching Ballroom and Latin dance, and finding any excuse to travel to faraway places

Charley brings over 20 years of marketing & design experience to 789, Inc. His background spans all aspects of advertising including brand development, marketing campaigns, community mobilization and education, and interactive and print design. Charley’s versatility, coupled with strategically sound methods, have helped dozens of clients, large and small, launch successful brand identities and expansive campaigns across virtually all industries. He is 789’s resident chef of creative ideas… a true creative junkie.

Richard brings over 16 years of design expertise, including corporate identity and standard-setting interactive work, with a focus on technology and business-to-consumer communications. Richard also holds significant fine art experience including illustration, paint-to-canvass, and true rendering for big business. When Richard swings into action, his attention to detail and unrelenting skill is 789’s secret weapon… he is our design junkie and 789’s artistic samurai. Without him, we’d be defenseless.

With an extensive art school education and a degree in graphic design, Crystal is our resident Pixel Princess. She has excellent attention to detail, and falls in love every day with each new layout and editorial design laid in front of her. She’s always in a great mood, and willing to challenge the norm in her own unique and innovative ways. Her honesty translates to paper seamlessly, fulfilling client’s needs and exceeding expectations daily. When she’s not designing to trance music, she loves to find and share the oddities in life, discover new food trends, and venture out to national parks.

Fernando brings over 20 years of experience in Marketing Strategy, Web Design and Development to 789, and for that reason, he is our resident Marketing Maestro! He works closely with the team and clients alike to ensure all things marketing and web-related are running efficiently and correctly. Did we mention he is also wicked-fast at resolving technical issues and finding long-term performance solutions? With additional passions for music and multilingual marketing, Fernando has a heightened sense of functionality and an eye for detail that our agency is lucky to have. In reality – both regular and virtual – he goes the extra mile to encourage, support, and supply knowledge in multiple programming and linguistic languages, application development, and basically just all that technical code that the rest of us don’t fully understand.

Gabriel brings a fresh new approach to Web Design and Development for 789. He works closely with the team and clients alike to ensure all things web-related are running efficiently and correctly. His passion for coding is complemented with a strong background in IT, which results in him jumping in to discover the most optimal hardware and software solutions. His enthusiasm for learning and problem-solving is infectious. With additional adventurous passions for surfing, snowboarding, and hiking, Gabriel has a heightened sense of exploring new worlds, digitally and in reality. Gabriel is 789’s Digital Daredevil, always willing to dive head-first into unknown digital worlds.

Shannon has spent his professional career building solid relationships across all different fields: from sports and entertainment, to real estate and finance. His extensive knowledge and expertise helps him to pick the perfect play for each client, making sure they achieve their ultimate goals. He is 789’s go-to coach – for project input, strategic solutions, and of course, fantasy football draft picks..

Adrian is a recent graduate from Cal Poly Pomona, and a passionate marketing enthusiast known for his knack of client relations. With a keen eye for transforming visions into reality, Adrian currently holds the position of Marketing Specialist at 789. His mission is crystal clear – to propel clients toward their full potential through impactful marketing strategies, while fostering valuable networks. Beyond the office, Adrian is often found capturing moments through his lens, enjoying leisurely walks with his dog, and immersing himself in the latest cinematic adventures.

From a young age, Logan has had a passion for exploring the world of web and development. Throughout the last four years, he has honed and developed his skills, making him 789’s perfect Code Craftsman. Super immersed in the world of development and programming, Logan is our resident “fixer,” handling any client needs with lightning-fast speed. When he’s not crafting the perfect code, he’s following his passion of learning everything about…everything! With anything that piques his interest, you can bet Logan is meticulously figuring out how it works… from musical instruments to camping and discovering the outdoors, and even studying helicopters!

Tyler is aptly titled as our Growth Specialist because of his 20 years of experience in growing businesses from the ground up! A start-up guru, Tyler has used his skills to dominate in the industries of specialized cannabis products, consumer beverages, and outdoor recreation services. His tact and finesse for navigating new business is inspired by his passion and life-long career in open water rowing. As 789’s Vertical Voyager, Tyler is keen on bringing new business to the table (when he’s not taking his Bay 21 rowing shell to the water).

When it comes to multi-media expertise, Jorge is our go-to nerd. With over 25 years of experience in the industry, Jorge specializes in all things event production, from video and audio, to presentation management and more. The ease and curiosity of which Jorge handles everything experiential is why he is dubbed our Experimental Engineer, because he quite literally does it all, learning new and innovative ideas along the way. When he’s not crafting the events of a lifetime, he’s spending time with his family, and passionately capturing the beautiful moments in life with his lens.

Meow! Seven is our newest addition to the team, and the one who keeps everyone quite literally on their toes. Her sweet and curious nature helps ignite the creative process, and bolster the office culture among our nerds. Whether she is chasing lasers, enjoying treats, or causing minor chaos stepping on someone’s keyboard, we can all agree that this Creative Cat is the purr-fect 789 mascot
