Alex
Digital Daredevil

Taking digital media data and turning it into actionable insights that pack a punch. Staying on top of digital trends better than I stay on top of what’s trendy these days. It’s ‘gucci’.

Alicia
Brand Savvy Slytherin

Like all Slytherins, I help you on your way to greatness. When I’m not wizarding my wand around for client success, you can find me traveling to new places, catching an Eagles game, or hanging out with my Boston Terrier, Cocoa Bean.

Former Difficult Client

Raise the bar high enough that you can go under it.

Audrey
Collaboration Aficionado

Is there such a thing as ambidextrous-brained? Because I enjoy creative problem solving and making data-driven decisions. I’m of the mindset that there is always a solution, and I promise to work with you until we find it. When I’m not working, I’m most likely updating my 100-year-old Baltimore row home or scouting for vintage treasures at flea markets or auctions.

Bee
Potato Connoisseur

When I’m not stuffing my face with French fries or baked potatoes, I’m attempting to make clients’ visual dreams come true. From digital to print to interactive, you can find me behind the scenes creating and Art Directing (and eating potatoes).

Christina
News Junkie

I’m completely addicted to the news – national, local, trade, celebrity gossip, you name it, and I have a million news apps, notifications, and email subscriptions to prove it. I wake up checking headlines, watch the morning shows while getting ready, and listen to NPR on my way in to work. I can talk your ear off about any topic, ranging from political elections to scientific breakthroughs, to the Brangelina breakup. I like to think this helps me stay on trend, and it definitely helps me get headlines (OR make news) for my clients.

Christine
Ms. Purrblicity

I like puzzles, and I see getting clients’ press coverage as just that! No matter the story, I’m here to put the puzzle together from start to finish. Oh, and I’m a cat lady. I’ve even gone so far as to get my cat, Portia, featured in The New York Times.

Planit’s local travel junkie! I’ve been to 20+ countries and am always looking to add to my list. When I’m not slinging highlighters and building to-do lists, you can catch me planning my next trip or finding a restaurant with my favorite international cuisine. Travel tips? I’m your girl!

Galen
The AV Guy

Planit is the kind of agency where you can “choose your own adventure” as a creative, and I think this is why we are such a good match—I’m not very good at “routine.” Being able to jump around from web design, animation, video, and photography really helps me keep the work fresh and forces me to constantly evolve as a creative. Being surrounded by fun, talented people every day is just icing on the cake.

Hannah
Creative Intern

Freshly graduated design student ready to take on the world (I mean, Planit).

If I’m not herding numbers, goats, or my child you can find me with a ticket stub in my hand.

Jack
Executive Director of Strategic Planning

I apologize. I just ate your low-hanging fruit and drank your Kool-Aid. I leveraged your synergies and funded your crowds. I led your thoughts, adopted you early, and hung out in your cloud. My long tail was wrapped all the way around your disruptive, holistic approach. Oh, and I broke your clutter. Sorry.

Uncovering stories is my talent, telling them is my passion. Who you are, what you do, what you stand for, where you came from, where you’re going, or the road that got you there – you have endless stories waiting to be told. Let me dig them up. Oh and, I have a Diet Coke addiction.

You can always count on me to look at the positives in any situation! If I’m not out and about, I’m at home whipping up new recipes and getting overly excited about new kitchen gadgets. Who doesn’t love an air fryer?!

I know because I’m Jon Hamm.” – Jon Hamm

The name’s Nutz. We’ll give you two (big) guesses why.

With a smile on his face and a copy of “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” tucked under his adorable little arm.

Hittin’ deadlines and listening to albums all the way through. Will someone please put time on my schedule to explain Spotify? I’ve loved watching commercials since I was a kid, and now I have an excuse.

Ryan
Group Strategy Director

I think it was Dumbledore who first spoke of me. He wrote, “a pseudo-man would be delivered to this Planit to practice the dark arts of consumer persuasion and shape shift user behaviors garnering for his contemporaries the stacks of cheddar they seek. You’re a wizard, Ryan.”
