What We Do

We believe hard-to-ignore communication sells products more effectively than boring-ass, bland ad blather. We also believe that a brand is the sum of its parts, and all of the parts should work together.

We are a fully integrated design, advertising, media and production company with a unique business structure that has been called "the model of the future". Call or write. We'd love to tell you more about it.

Jason began his relationship with Hub in early 2007. His design sensibility and thinking were welcomed with open arms. They have been madly in love ever since. Before arriving at Hub, Jason was a designer at Nickelodeon in New York. After almost six years at Nick, Jason felt the pull of the west coast and dropped it all to move to San Francisco to pursue his dreams of designing in the cold and foggy sunshine. When not at Hub, Jason enjoys eating out and purchasing expensive design books and vintage modern furniture. Education-wise, Jason earned a degree in marketing/advertising from the University of Pittsburgh followed by design studies at both Parsons School of Design and the School of Visual Arts.

Elaine joined the Hub team as an Account Director in October of 2014. Before her time at Hub, she worked at Organic San Francisco and managed the Quaker and the Nike direct-to-consumer businesses.

She is a Boston-native and has spent time at various agencies in Beantown including Carat, Mullen and Studiocom. Given her almost five year stint working on the Dunkin' Donuts business, we consider her a resident QSR and coffee expert. She brings a wealth of digital expertise to Hub as well. Her client list also includes Staples, Reebok, Coke Zero, Wachovia Bank, Liberty Medical, and now Western Union, Nimble Storage and National Aquarium.

Elaine spends her free time taking photos of her two adorable girls, hiking with her pooch, Marley, cooking, and trying to catch a movie now and again.

Kelly recently joined Hub to build out their Digital Media practice. She was drawn to the entrepreneurial spirit of the agency, the clever work they do for their clients and their overall business philosophies which align perfectly with her own. Kelly brings honesty and integrity, with overall smart, strategic leadership to her media clients.

A veteran in the digital media space, Kelly's vast experience spans from leading large agencies, helping launch and grow smaller boutique agencies to running her own consulting agency and teaching Marketing classes at the Academy of Art University. Kelly has spent the past four years running the Optimedia San Francisco office. In congruence with managing the office, Kelly was the senior lead on the largest accounts in the San Francisco Office, Scion and Nintendo. She focused her efforts on encouraging her clients to strive for more innovative solutions and pushing for advanced analytics.

Kelly stays very active in the industry, speaking at countless industry events over the years and most recently she has been named 2016 President of sfBIG (San Francisco Bay Area Innovation Group).

Cassie joined the Hub crew in 2014. Prior to Hub, Cassie spent several years at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners and Pereira & O'Dell working on major brands like Comcast, Sprint, Dickies & Skype.

From brand campaigns, re-brands, B2B, product and competitive advertising—Cassie has dug her teeth into just about every sort of marketing challenge there is (and kicked it's ass, might we add). She brings a ton of fully integrated experience to the team and has a knack for thinking outside the box of traditional advertising and championing innovative ideas.

When not teaching Brand Strategy & Account Planning at Miami Ad School, you can find Cassie sipping on some tasty vino, doing "outdoorsy" stuff, volunteering at the SF SPCA or obsessing over her own little pooch, Charlie. Who BTW, has his own Instagram account with thousands of followers.

Jason began his relationship with Hub in early 2007. His design sensibility and thinking were welcomed with open arms. They have been madly in love ever since. Before arriving at Hub, Jason was a designer at Nickelodeon in New York. After almost six years at Nick, Jason felt the pull of the west coast and dropped it all to move to San Francisco to pursue his dreams of designing in the cold and foggy sunshine. When not at Hub, Jason enjoys eating out and purchasing expensive design books and vintage modern furniture. Education-wise, Jason earned a degree in marketing/advertising from the University of Pittsburgh followed by design studies at both Parsons School of Design and the School of Visual Arts.

Cassie joined the Hub crew in 2014. Prior to Hub, Cassie spent several years at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners and Pereira & O'Dell working on major brands like Comcast, Sprint, Dickies & Skype.

From brand campaigns, re-brands, B2B, product and competitive advertising—Cassie has dug her teeth into just about every sort of marketing challenge there is (and kicked it's ass, might we add). She brings a ton of fully integrated experience to the team and has a knack for thinking outside the box of traditional advertising and championing innovative ideas.

When not teaching Brand Strategy & Account Planning at Miami Ad School, you can find Cassie sipping on some tasty vino, doing "outdoorsy" stuff, volunteering at the SF SPCA or obsessing over her own little pooch, Charlie. Who BTW, has his own Instagram account with thousands of followers.
