Many of the clients we work with regularly today have been with us since we opened our doors.
Why? Because we take the time to understand our clients’ stories and tell them using whichever medium is best suited to the task: print, video, web, or something else entirely. We’re proud to say that over the past eight years, we’ve learned a thing or two about utilities, pharmaceuticals, economic development, real estate, alternative energy, family dentistry, and a lot more.
That's the long of it. The short of it is this: we do a lot of different things for a lot of kinds of clients.

There’s a lot involved in taking a concept from the page to the screen. Luckily we’ve got a guy who knows how to stitch all of those things together to bring that idea to life.
Graduating from Grand Valley State University 2008 with a bachelor’s in Film and Video Production, Vince honed his skills with Grooters Productions before joining Boileau Communications in early 2012, where he lends his expertise in every aspect of video production—from pre-production through post. He sweats every detail, which makes him the perfect guy to put behind the camera when everything’s got to look immaculate.
Think of him this way: If a picture’s worth a thousand words, then at 24 fps, Vince is worth at least 1,440,000 words per minute. Don’t even try to keep up on your QWERTY.

What do you get when you combine a love of sports, comic books and Star Wars? “Someone who shoots baskets in their mom’s driveway only when they aren’t watching The Empire Strikes Back on the couch in her basement,” might be your first thought. But Brian should be your second.
With thirteen years experience designing everything from identities and annual reports to websites and iPad interfaces, Brian is an award-winning designer who revels in variety. When he’s not developing print specs or photoshopping Boba Fett into family pictures, he’s hand-coding HTML and researching our client’s competitors.
Brian graduated magna cum laudé from North Carolina State University’s School of Design in 1999, despite spending an unhealthy amount of time camping out for good seats at basketball games. But these days, he’s much happier reading comics to his two sons and playing beach volleyball with his wife.
