REBECCA RAUSCH | HEAD LIZARD
Who remembers the TV show, "Bewitched"? Well, if you remember, Darrin Stevens, Samantha's husband, was a graphic designer! As a child, I would dream of designing for clients and presenting my ideas. I loved the risk of baring one's soul with design and coming up with ingenious solutions. I was hooked.
I decided early that design was my path. Graduating high school at 16, college with a BFA by 20, I landed my first Creative Director position by 23. I intentionally worked for many firms, corporations, and agencies along my journey so that I could learn it all.
Over the years, I have recognized that noble businesses are desperately trying to make sense of branding and marketing. Technology changes, and transactional freelance hubs have confused entrepreneurs about the true definition of a brand. Many vendors have been dishonest. Our artistic society has devolved into something that is often mistrusted and viewed as nonessential to success.
I knew there had to be a better way than just taking single-project orders like a burger joint. Companies need someone dedicated to their success.
There are artisans still worthy of trust. NLC is the marketing agency that wants to be your first call, your dependable guide, a partner to bring your beautiful brand design to fruition and celebrate its impact with you.
Our mindset of living the brand, aka living the "BrandStyle"...incorporates the tenets of "The HEART Principle." Over the last 5 years, we have grown from just little ole' me, working off my kitchen counter, to a six-figure agency designing for companies across the globe. We did it, and we can help you reach your goals too.
I am proud to be associated with and surrounded by fearless design visionaries that challenge our team to grow, and I am even more excited to show them off to you.

MICHELLE | Quality Guru
We discovered Michelle here in Minnesota. She joined us as a gifted designer and production artist from the signage and trade show world. We soon discovered her talent for writing, proof-reading and has further established herself as the QA specialist and social media guru.
This assures that not only is the content correct, but production/design is on point as well. Lucky lizards are we!
