Telegraph Branding is purposefully boutique, multi-disciplined, and charmingly abnormal.
Our team is a conglomeration of the most talented people you're likely to ever meet.
Cofounder / Creative Director
Isaiah grew up on the banks of the Thames River in London, England, thereby
rendering all of your childhood memories inferior to his. In the early part of the 21st century he took his
afternoon tea and fading cockney accent to the Yanks, seeking ways to seduce
them with his award-winning ideas and strategies. Armed with an embarrassingly
astute eye for design and a gift for storytelling unmatched even by the likes of
Hemingway, Isaiah’s designs have singlehandedly helped breathe life
into companies and products around the world. Not one to boast, he often blushes at such embellishments. When not
under the spell of Seth Godin, Isaiah can be found five steps ahead of everyone else.
Cofounder / President
Kevin has really good ideas, like super good, every day. His ideas are superior
to your ideas. But that’s good news for you. Because we enable our clients to pass off
these strokes of genius as their own. The client takes all the credit. After all,
ideas are the ultimate currency. Kevin is absolutely fascinated with human behavior.
Predicting it. Influencing it. Shaping it. That is what first drew him to this
racket and what fuels his ambition and passion every day. He has over 8 years
of priceless experience in agency land… Isn’t that how most bios start? Is that
relevant? Kevin's daily Twitter reviews are more relevant to our client's success
than any hyperbolized Madison Avenue agency experience that took place pre-iPhone.
If you want inspiration, read more Shakespeare. If you want innovation, call Telegraph.

family's needs and her career goals. Which she can do thanks to awesome bosses.

VP of Business Development
Tim is a man of results, and he's produced a great many of them throughout his 20 years of running multi-million dollar companies. Tim's history is one forged out of sweat equity, not feather cussioned trust funds. Mr. Webster made his fortunes in industrial motor controls, where he designed lighting and power systems for large commercial office buildings and plants. Having dealt with industrial salesmen, Tim carved out an expertise in sales, business development and the school of hard knocks. In 1989, he started Belt Power and grew an industrial sales empire across the southeast for the next two decades. Besides his impressive career, Tim feels no less blessed with his family of 5: a wife and 4 wonderful children. Nowadays, Tim spends his time helping brands forge attainable growth models, achieve the highest returns and results, and steering a solid ROI into all of Telegraph's branding and design initiatives.
Visual Interface Designer
Specializing in print and web design, David turns ideas into design. When strategizing his next award-winning project, he bears in mind the words of April Greiman:
"Design must seduce, shape, and perhaps more importantly, evoke
an emotional response." From logos to posters, videos to websites,
he makes the creative challenge look like child's play, pushing
himself to create things you never could. But that’s good for your
business, because his astute listening skills equip him to turn
your problems into solutions while making you look good. When not
practicing awesome, David enjoys playing drums and learning to
cook in his downtown flat.
Lead Web Developer
Allen speaks source code, widgets, apps and all things nerdy. Let's face it: only one in ten thousand of us can build the kind of robust front end and backend experiences that Allen whips up in his sleep. Back in the dark ages of 1996, Allen began combining his two greatest super powers into one. He took on huge roles with large health care companies as the man behind the curtain... Calling himself the "WEBMASTER". Perfecting his skills he forged on helping small to medium size startups appear to be billion dollar generating companies. Today, Mr. Oakman protects the less fortunate sites in this vast world from the common henchmen known as "hackers" and prevents poorly designed sites from getting destroyed by the evil "downed economy". If you find yourself in need send Allen a telegraph and he will be there for you too.
Jamie has been on the frontline of the left-brain-right-brain battle for 26 years. 1s and 0s versus design layout. Fiction versus nonfiction. Brewing science versus taste. Never satisfied with one or the other, Jamie finds his niche in places that demand big picture solutions built on details, and the world wide web is such a place. Whether it's working with robust content management systems or building cutting edge Rails apps from the command line, Jamie loves the instant gratification inherent in code and pixels. He's also a firm believer that water, barley and yeast are ingredients for success.
Visual Motion Designer
Seth is obsessed with HD video. Before coming to Telegraph,
he headed up the video production for top-level recruiting
startup NextSpex.com, as well as helping put Iron Tribe Fitness,
America's fastest growing CrossFit gym, on the map. At Iron Tribe,
Seth forged out a name for himself with the video series TribeVibeTV, a popular website and YouTube channel sporting
fitness videos and health journals. At Telegraph, Seth takes
his passion for telling stories to new heights, crafting videos,
commercials and webisodes for brands and products that will
blow your mind. Sporting a strong Southern accent and a few
D5100's at his fingertips, Seth loves anything to do with
sports, CrossFit and video production.
Designer / Illustrator
Cory is a mad man illustrator. He draws things that some people say simply can't be drawn. He uses his secret arts to conjure up visual masterpieces that capture the heart and soul of our clients ideas and services. Without him, your ideas are bland, perhaps even ugly. What Cory does to them cannot be spoken of, but the results do all the talking. His extensive porfolio has helped countless clients connect with their audiences in ways previously thought impossible. His favorite pastime is visualizing and illustrating highly complex ideas into something that anyone can understand and relate to. When not drawing on paper (old school) he is bringing his designs to life through animation and motion effects via his new favorite toys, After Effects and Cinema4D.
Motion Graphics Designer
Born in the Philippine Islands and with more than 4 countries to
call home, Josh is an avid world-traveller and connoisseur of
culture. Currently attending SCAD Atlanta, Josh lends Telegraph
his cutting edge interactive design and motion media skills. When
not working on the latest and greatest techniques in motion and
3D design, Josh explores new ways off-screen to incorporate found
objects, type and human emotion into the videos and commercials he
produces. Though he won't admit it, he's soon to be the next Kyle
Cooper or Paul Rand. Josh works remotely from Atlanta and enjoys
being young and free. Meaning, he works 80 hours a week and lives
and breathes all things design.
Alexander is all about being social. He basically gets to sit on Facebook (and Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Pinterest) all day while in the office. Right? WRONG! Alex is busy coming up with clever social strategies that will build a tight-knit community and personality around your brand. If you don't have a social conversation strategy, then you’re not in tune with your audience. In fact, you should probably just leave it to the experts. Like Alex, whose sole goal in life is to create blueprints for your brand to express themselves in human, meaningful ways. Alex is always looking for the newest tools and ideas to engage even further. Gauging from the mind-blowing success he has helped achieved for Telegraph's clients, he's pretty on top of it.
