Some call it brilliance.
We call it a purpose.

Hire a team that’s passionate about creating and innovating, and you’ll attract clients that are passionate about your business. It’s kind of common sense in a way. One goes hand in hand with the other.

Being creative and passionate about storytelling, collaboration and engagement in business requires a purpose-driven approach. When you focus on engaging your audience, people notice.

Why hire an experienced creative team?

There are so many low-cost alternatives, right?

Sure, there are also pyramid schemes, penny stocks, and plenty of other half-baked bad investments you can consider—if that’s your thing.

Two truths about the internet, though:

  1. You NEVER want to look bad online.
  2. Nothing goes away—ever.
  1. Experienced
  2. Creative
  3. Team

Experienced


We didn’t graduate from YouTube University. We’ve been doing this for awhile. Unlike some online shops, we perform the work we sell ourselves. We like it this way, because we can guarantee a level of quality that isn’t possible otherwise.

We bring you decades of experience and training in all the services we offer, from formal education in our fields to years of real experience with clients of all sizes, ranging from small businesses to large corporations.

Creative


Our experience allows us to offer strategies and systems that work. Creativity allows us to intuitively find new ways to expand on those strategies to innovate the ways we serve each client’s unique needs.

It’s something that runs in our blood, and flows through our intuition.

Team


We believe collaboration strengthens all efforts. If two heads are better than one, then why not go for six or seven really brilliant heads? The numbers just make sense.

Our team consists of dedicated content strategists, impeccable writers, diligent researchers, vivid videographers, visionary photographers, meticulous audiophiles, tireless designers, branding geeks, data hounds, analytics advocates, marketing nerds, and all around creatives that love making stuff happen on the job and in real life.

The Team

With our powers combined...

austin alexander

co-founder / Lead Strategist / ceo

Austin Alexander helms the team at FEAD like a round table, and he wouldn’t be anywhere without his team. Seriously. He is a writer, content marketer, “creative”, and designer from Austin, Texas. He graduated with two Bachelors of Arts degrees from St. Edward’s University in English Writing & Rhetoric and Theatre. He also holds certifications in web design and programming. He’s worked as a web & graphic designer, content writer, blogger, print advertising sales rep, and much more. He loves connecting with people through stories, so content marketing just made sense to him.

FEAD Media was a vision he and the rest of the co-founders had working together as a sort of merry band of freelancers. If good help is hard to find, maybe he’s just gotten lucky a bunch. When Austin’s not working he’s acting, writing, playing music, or travelling with his girlfriend. He’s done and does a little bit of everything, which he says is a blessing and a curse.

When Duncan’s not working, acting, or filming…he is moderating multiple Facebook forums, watching basketball, playing games (online and in real life), and doting on his cats.
