IT STARTED WITH COFFEE: AN ORIGIN STORY
Jess was in the kitchen pouring fresh mugs. She mulled over the ceramic selection: an eclectic mosaic of travel and geek culture. She picked the only two that match, left over from her barista days.
Katie had been freelancing around town and Jess had just moved back to the Fraser Valley after grad school. Over this third cup of coffee, they realized they had a job to do. They needed to use their powers for good: to work with local businesses and organizations to craft amazing content that leads to more customers and a stronger community.
The coffee went cold as they took to brainstorming ideas for their new team. It needed a name, it needed a brand. If you ask her nicely, maybe Katie will show you the mind map.
