Our Team

 
de Novo Asterisk

Curiosity hasn’t killed these cats. In fact, curiosity is what fuels their creativity. Our company culture thrives on open, collaborative spaces and semi-offensive GIFs. (Official de Novo policy: the G is hard.) We hire the best of the best, treat them with ice cream and respect, then unleash them on unsuspecting grateful clients.

A note on our culture: we work in a big open office, which means that we have the opportunity to collaborate and weigh in on projects and get all up in each other’s business. Especially Ryan. Our team leverages our curiosity to give our clients our best strategy and creative. It keeps things fresh… oh hey, like our name! See what we did there?

We find connection and inspiration in creative play at de Novo. We use team meetings and outings as a way to fuel our crazy ideas, which we shape and craft into strategy, brands and campaigns for our clients.
