The OTF Squad

Our band of marketers, creators, and change makers

We’re truth seekers.  Empathetic curators of thoughtful stories and heartfelt moments with a passion for sustainability, design, technology, and culture.

We like to look beyond our traditional roles as creatives, producers, designers, camera operators, and editors.  We’re a squad of swing players that are down to wear multiple hats and stretch our creative muscle beyond our comfort zones.  It’s not abnormal for our Director to jump into the Edit Bay, our Editor to jump into the Directors Chair, or our designer to snap photos.

We’ve been called resourceful, tenacious, and scrappy… and we’re okay with that.
