Although his background includes working at a toy company, Matt doesn’t play around when it comes to great design. He spent his undergraduate years honing his skills through co-op semesters while earning his bachelor’s degree in applied science from the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art, & Planning (DAAP).

I want to build things, make things better and make people happy. And one day, I’d like to eat space pizza with Elon Musk on Mars.

Prior to joining Intrinzic, Matt worked as a co-op at Cincinnati’s Great American Insurance Company, LPK and the Hasbro toy company in Pawtucket Rhode Island. He has experience in package development, motion design and brand identity development and he’s excited to bring his skills to Intrinzic to help tell our clients’ stories visually. He currently lives in Mt. Adams and when not at work enjoys motorcycling around the Tri-state.

Chloe brings a passion for strategy combined with razor sharp writing skills to tell our clients’ stories and inspire audiences. She uses a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach to develop big ideas that bring big impact.

Chloe comes to Intrinzic with experience in copywriting, brand strategy and social media community management. She holds a B.A. in advertising and public relations from Xavier University. While on campus she was also part of Xavier’s Marketing & Communications department and keeper of the university’s Instagram account.

I believe in the power of words and how they educate, empower, inspire, and unite us all. They not only compose who our brands are, but also tell the stories of who we are as individuals. Brands are more than just a product or idea; it’s an experience, a memory, or a story. It’s when we share these stories with one another and really listen to them when the magic really happens.

Abby has a passion for taking words to tell a brand’s story across multiple channels, capturing the essence of iconic brands in many industries. Her work spans B2B and B2C, and her smart, approachable style makes her an inspirational leader who can deliver remarkable verbal strategy.

“A brand is power. It’s your strengths, your individuality, your best qualities—all rolled into one idea, one image—an essence that people will always associate with you. But, it’s not always easy to clearly see and speak about those aspects of yourself. The best thing about writing for brands is meeting the people behind the scenes—the founders, the customers, and the employees—and finding the right words for them to tell their stories, loud and proud, so they can make their businesses grow.

With more than 15 years of experience, Abby’s career includes copy development and brand development work at LPK. She also held senior communications roles at UC’s College-Conservatory of Music and the UC College of Design, Art, Architecture and Planning. Abby holds a MA in English from the University of Cincinnati and a bachelor’s in journalism and English literature from Ohio University.

Design is important to me because when I create something there is an overwhelming sense of fulfillment. Beyond myself, I can see the impact I am creating for businesses and consumers. I strive to bring thoughtful design and strategy to every brand I touch that give them the tools to impact our environment in a positive way.

Savannah earned her bachelor’s degree in graphic design from the University of Dayton.

Courtney Morgan is a self-proclaimed “graphic designer, strategic thinker, inspiration seeker and insane brand lover.” She brings passionate energy and perspective to the team.

Courtney earned a visual communication design degree from the University of Dayton and has a background in traditional print design. She quickly learned that it’s best to absorb as much as possible in this ever-changing industry.

Telling authentic and unique brand stories in a meaningful way starts with recognizing truths and collaborating to expand them. When we allow ourselves to recognize our truths, we can better find our individuality and collaborate with others. I’m inspired by the passion our clients have an openness to learning their truths. I enjoy helping organizations find their identity in a marketplace and making sure the outcome is true and meaningful is the whole point of it all.

She has helped create holistic brands from the ground up, executed digital UX/UI experiences and has worked with clients while leading projects. Before coming to Intrinzic, Courtney worked at Possible, Rocket Science + Design and Graphica.

After more than 25 years in the agency business, you’d think a person would have seen about everything, but nothing stays the same for long and the old saw is true, change is the only constant. Dave certainly has experienced lots of change over the years in a career that spans all aspects of strategic communications from advertising and branding, to digital marketing and employee communications. He has helped counsel brands ranging from Anheuser-Busch, Trans World Airlines, Disney, Tide, Ethyl Chemical, Folgers, Square D, among many others. This broad-based experience has helped him to not only be a marketing specialist but also become a business problem solver and change management resource.

I am a champion of collaboration because I have seen the impact it can have on a company and on the people who chose to actively participate in it. Yes, it is hard, messy and inherently inefficient, but it is worth the effort – every time. 

He continues to spend most of his time ensuring all the pieces to “the puzzle” fit together – and remaining constructively discontent.
