Small Office, Big Heart
We're not your typical marketing team. Our approach to every project is "How can we Kick Some Ass?", which prompted one client to ask if that's what the KSA in our name stands for.
We started at a dining room table in 2011 as a two-person operation and have since grown into a full-service marketing firm with a full-time staff of 6, along with a few talented contractors who call other states home.
Our growth is fueled by passion, and our passion is delivering results on a personal level. This means we focus on people as much as businesses, and we value our relationship with each client.
Today, we call "The Tide Mill" home in Warwick, RI. Built in 1710, our office matches our unique personalities and encourages us to remember our roots in Rhode Island while we're busy creating the future for our clients.
