Joy spent over 17 years managing widely recognized brands as an in-house marketing manager. After transitioning to owning her own marketing agency, Add+In Marketing, Joy merged with Small Dog Creative in 2016 so that she could offer clients a full array of creative services that include expertly crafted websites and inbound marketing capabilities. She enjoys seeing the rewarding results that come from providing clients with the consultative support they need to keep their businesses flourishing. Joy keeps the ball rolling and the artwork flowing.
Born and raised in Wisconsin, Max studied Music Business at Berklee College of Music in Boston before making his way to Los Angeles. Always looking at the creative side of things, he has experience in every facet of design—whether it’s packaging, web development, print design or product development, he’s seen it all. Before joining SDC, he served as Creative Director for LSTN Sound Co., leading all internal design initiatives and working with global partners including Delta Air Lines and Chivas Regal. His passion for learning and problem solving mean he’s always up for a challenge. When not in the office, you can probably find Max on the golf course or hunting down his next favorite craft beer.
