UpFrame Creative + MAS Media

Stronger Together To Better Serve Our Clients


 “We entrepreneurs are loners, vagabonds, troublemakers. Success is simply a matter of finding and surrounding ourselves with those open-minded and clever souls who can take our insanity and put it to good use.”

Anita Roddick

Founder of The Body Shop

Why partner?

The decision to enter into this partnership was made to keep YOU, our customer, our priority. This partnership will allow us access to not only new talent but also the ability to offer more services. On a day-to-day basis, it will feel like business as usual for you. The UpFrame Creative team, with our new members Shay and Hannah, will be working closely together to offer the same great services of website design, branding, logo design, and graphic design, and now a bigger focus on strategic marketing, planning and management.

A little bit of coffee goes a very long way...

In the beginning, what started as a simple cup of coffee to discuss business became something so much bigger than we were anticipating.

It's true we knew each other as competitors at first, essentially "sharing" clients at times. Then, Hannah and Shay decided to take a chance and reach out to Carrie. Over coffee, we discussed how business was going, our families, backgrounds, and current struggles. We had natural transparency in our conversations from the very start. What first felt competitive now felt collaborative. We stayed in touch, but with each interaction, we got increasingly curious about what could be. What would it look like if we combined two successful businesses that were rapidly growing?

We are excited to find out!
