About our fantastic team!

UpFrame Creative started as the web and design division of Hitch Studio in 2014. Hitch was a partnership between Carrie Kuhl and Renee Bauman, two entrepreneurs who combined their freelance businesses to start something bigger. After five years of working together, Hitch became so successful that the one business grew into three. UpFrame is one of those businesses.

Carrie has already helped more than 150 small businesses develop their identities, create their websites and put their best face forward.

Now, UpFrame aims to help every small business in rural communities succeed through excellent web and graphic design. To accomplish this goal, UpFrame needed to expand and bring on more diverse talents. As of January 1, 2022 MAS Media of Marshall, MN and UpFrame Creative joined forces in the name of growth. Together we will be able to be more efficient in our processes and provide better services to our clients.
