The audacity to grow your business
and the creativity to make it amazing.
Why We’re Different
Audacity was founded on the willingness to take bold risks. We have a purposefully different perspective that helps us figure out what risks get results. Our partners are different from each other. We bring breadth and depth of perspective and experience. We combine years of experience and education with the fresh perspectives and subtle sensitivities of having a team that crosses age, gender, race, and culture lines.
What We Do
Branding & Marketing
We use our broad, unique perspectives to create innovative solutions to drive the value of your brand and grow your business. We love working businesses of all sizes, because it takes audacity to start something and boldness to grow it. We help generate and execute ideas, from building the brand to digital advertising to social media and sales enablement.
Audacity and creativity are the last legal unfair advantages you have.

James has been building websites for about five years now and loves to play with colors and fonts along with setting up the basic layouts for websites that are going into the initial design phase and debuging issues that occur on sites that are currently live.
When not working on websites, James loves to read fantasy and science fiction novels and has recently taken a greater interest in learning other languages, starting with Spanish.
Jenna is a marketing and fundraising professional from Chicago, Illinois. She’s a “Jane of all trades” when it comes to marketing, with extensive experience in campaign strategy, content creation, project management, analytics, client relations, and more—but she specializes in copywriting and strategy because that’s way more fun. Jenna can transform even the most jumbled ideas into a cohesive and meaningful message. She also has an unhealthy relationship with em dashes. If you know, you know.
When she’s not working, Jenna enjoys singing with the Apollo Chorus of Chicago, losing to her friends at cards, beating those same friends at Scrabble, going on long walks, and drinking way too much coffee. By the time you’re reading this, Jenna will also likely be working towards a master’s degree in environmental humanities at the University of Glasgow in Dumfries, Scotland.
