let’s get creative

We’re not here to think outside the box.
We’re here to burn the box and dance on its ashes.


We got our start in publishing and it remains our purpose and passion. Whether you’re producing a printed or digital book or magazine, we can help.

Writing and Editing

We love good writing. In fact, the only thing we love better is helping others strengthen their own writing with top-level narrative to last-ditch copy editing. 


Our visual storytelling experience stretches from logo and identity design to photo editing to art direction and site design (and then some!)


“Üma does a lot of things really well. She’s a highly productive creative professional with a unique skill set across several content mediums—as both a copywriter and designer. I highly recommend her—she’s a joy to work with and a real producer. 

Marketing Director, Verde PR

“Uma was a very dependable and consistent editorial columnist with a high degree of integrity. She took her work very seriously, had great attention to detail, and was driven to achieve success with everything she did as a contributor.”

Managing Editor, GoLocalPDX

“A friend of friend highly recommended Uma and I quickly realized why: She is amazing. For example, Uma created numerous marketing brochures for us, most of them had to do with something technical and the content had to be rewritten in a way that humans could understand; that was a huge deal for us. Thanks to Uma, we now have fantastic marketing materials and a brand to build upon and be proud of.”

Marketing Director, Centerlogic

“Uma worked for me on dozens of print projects. We worked together remotely for many years and she was a strong team member and collaborator. Uma’s work always finished on-time or better than deadline. She was my go-to designer because her work was creative, original, and excellent. I highly recommend her and I will continue to use her in the future.”

Writer, Editor, Time Inc Publishing

“Uma is multi-talented and a pioneer. She will bring her passion to anything she does. She is a force to be reckoned with!”

Creative Director and Photographer, D Sharp

“Uma’s writing is clever and clear without talking down to her audience. She communicates in an extremely personal and humble manner that balances her authority with her authenticity. ”
