We work closely with you to make sure we accurately capture your company’s voice and tone, can articulate your message and mission, and understand your audience. We want you to feel the confidence in knowing what we design, what we write, and what we develop is something that you fall in love with every single day.

Here are some of the rockstars ready to work with you:

Kyle Willis N2Q

Kyle Willis

You ready to look beyond status quo?

Chase Billow

Chief Strategist

Middle School Spelling Bee Champ

Remember when the USA had a respectable basketball team in the Olympics? Jordan, Bird, Drexler, Hakeem, Magic…they were unstoppable. Well, we’re bringing that dream team magic back to your marketing department and Chase is the All-Star you want on your side.

 

As the Chief Strategist, Chase brings a holistic approach to your digital marketing efforts and ensures our team creates what’s most important to meet your goals and exceed your expectations.

Kuba Kerner

Lead Designer

Hidden Talent:

Able to Ride a Unicycle

Kuba joins us from Philadelphia, Pennsylvannia, the town of brotherly love. He brings that love to our creative process to provide an attractive, intuitive, and enjoyable experience.

 

As our lead designer, Kuba directs our talented team of creatives. His rich experience of directing teams across multiple departments will give you the clarity to know no project is too big and no deadline will be missed.

 

In addition to his keen sense of design, he’s a talented copywriter. This enables him to not just make something look good, but know how to design for CTAs and optimal user experience.

 

Oh, and if you speak Polish, you’re gonna like him even more.

Dan Romero

Visual Designer

Hidden Talent:

It’s Still a Mystery

Dan helps extend N2Q’s reach internationally, as he joins us from the beautiful land of Buenos Aries, Argentina. He lends his extensive experience in visual and interactive design to our creative team and provides a fresh, unique perspective.

 

When a project has short deadlines or a client really doesn’t know what they want and how to describe it, Dan is our secret weapon. If there were design super powers, Dan’s would be making sense out of confusion. He just gets it done, and done right the first time.

 

We’re lucky to have you on our team, Dan. We just wish we had the beautiful weather here in Seattle that you get every day.

Ryanne Levin N2Q

Ryanne Levin

Illustrator

Hidden Talent:

Expert Kitten Caller.

Ryanne is a graphic designer and illustrator living in sunny Florida.  She traded her rain boots in for tank tops and rubs it in our face a little. She loves marrying digital illustration with print and web design to create unique and stunning visuals (just take a look at our website – she hand-drew most everything here). While illustration and design are her specialties, shes no stranger to front-end web development.

 

Using her knowledge of WordPress and HTML/CSS, shes been building websites for small and mid-sized businesses for close to a decade. Whether you need a one-of-a-kind illustration or a custom look for your site, Ryanne will work to give you the design youre looking for.

Matthew is our other sunshine designer, living in Florida. He’s been a designer for over twenty years. He’s worked with big brands such as Krispy Kreme, Comcast, and Time Warner, as well as small businesses, nonprofits, and startups.

 

Matthew is our utility designer, with a wide range of skills from print collateral, logo design, and web graphics.

 

There’s no job too small for him and he knows how to ask the right questions to get you the design you’re looking for. He’s probably the nicest guy on our team too. You’ll agree after your first call or email from him. He just exudes joy and positivity.

Red Balansay

Graphic Designer

Hidden Talent:

Laughing at Bad Jokes

Red resides in the great ol’ Pacific Northwest and brings to N2Q over ten years of experience as a graphic designer and content manager.

 

Let’s face it. There are a lot of good designers out there, but it’s not often you can find someone who understands how viewers act, designs to effectively engage them, and can provide the copy to accompany his great aesthetics. It’s the full package.

 

Red’s skill comes from years of managing design and content marketing teams. He knows how to understand client needs, relay this to his team, and find ways to “wow” the customer without missing deadlines or going over budget.

Xin (Shawn) Zhu

Lead Developer

Hidden Talent:

Fluent in Esperanto

Xin (pronounced Shawn) is N2Q’s secret weapon. Ok…the secret isn’t so secret, but he’s our rockstar developer who ensures your dreams become a reality.

 

Able to code in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, Vue, Node.js, Express.js, Laravel, and, oh, sorry, did we lose you there? Let’s just say this guy is a genius. You see his hidden talent above? Yeah, that’s an artificial language he’s fluent in.

 

When he’s not making website dreams come true, he’s an accomplished speaker, journalist, and radio program editor.

 

With over 15 years of experience in web development, he can handle pretty much any request. Go ahead, try him. He’ll find a way to get it done!

Brian Zenarosa

Digital Marketing Manager

Hidden Talent:

Talented Musician and Director

Remember Bert, the chimney sweeper in Mary Poppins, who was a one-man band and could basically do everything thanks to a little Mary Poppins’ magic? Brian is that guy to N2Q.

 

Competitor analysis. Keyword research. Industry insights. Brian geeks out over data and helping you know what to act on.

 

He’s our utility player that touches all aspects of digital marketing in search engine optimization, social media planning, ad campaigns, and so much more. No task is too big or too small. Brian knows how to get it done on time, within budget, and delivered with excellence.

Hidden Talent:

Flexible schedules are
what matter most.

N2Q Consulting is seeking Seattle’s next great digital marketing manager. We’re looking for someone ready to bring a fresh, creative perspective to our clients’ social media and paid advertising campaigns. No two days will be the same and you’ll need to be a good communicator who can work well with deadlines.

 

This digital marketing manager will be responsible to support our SEO, PPC, and social media teams. You’re a good fit if you can write eloquently while being witty, in both long and short form. You’re gonna like this job if you do well working on your own, don’t need someone telling you what to do every day, and like every day being a bit different than the last. Our ideal candidate can master Google AdWords, Facebook ads, and pump out some awesome blog articles all in a day’s work.

John Leckenby N2Q

John Leckenby

Content Strategist

Hidden Talent:

Can Easily Juggle 5 Balls.

John is our OG N2Q team member, as he has been working with us since shortly after our humble kitchen beginnings. John’s a social media manager with extensive experience in creative writing, social media content and strategy, videography, and other creative outlets. He traded in rainy Saturdays and good coffee for the sunshine of California, but couldn’t say goodbye to N2Q, so works remotely with us.

 

John has regularly provided quality content and creative direction for a variety of organizations, with an emphasis on helping non-profits and NGOs extend their message through digital marketing initiatives.

Barbara Hernandez

Barbara Hernandez

Graphic Designer

Hidden Talent:

Amateur Astronomer.

Barbara is a designer originally from Los Angeles, CA, and ventured north to Seattle a few years ago. If this was an eHarmony bio, we’d call her ambitious and driven. So, if you’re looking for someone you can take long walks on the beach with, maybe not your girl. If you’re wanting someone who’s going to challenge your perception of good design and willing to climb Mt. Everest for your success, then you found your match.

 

As one of our designers, Barb will be the expert you rely on to know what will make your audience convert. She’s unwilling to let you stay inside the box. This is No to the Quo, after all. And when she’s not obsessively working on a project, she enjoys brewery hopping in Vancouver, CA, and camping in the Pacific Northwest. So if you wanna meet at a local taphouse or up in the woods, she’d be down.

Corianne Burton N2Q

Corianne Burton

Project Manager

Hidden Talent:

World Champion Equestrian.

We like to refer to Corianne as our client’s best friend, and for good reason. Her #1 job is to make sure our clients love working with us. SEO, PPC, social media – they’re all tactics to achieve a goal. She will ensure you understand the why behind the what and be your point of contact for any question, anytime.

 

As your project manager, she’ll collaborate with you to customize your campaign to fit your goals, and chances are good that you’ll probably have some fun along the way. Whether you prefer a detailed, data-driven analysis of results that you would be thrilled to present at your board meeting, or quick, simple, and easy to digest bullet points, she’s got you covered.
