We Work with Artisans
Our clients put thought into the paintings they form, the photos they compose, the videos they create, the articles they write, the surfboards they shape, and the clients they serve in their practice. These characteristics are what make these creatives a good fit for Impact Zone. They care deeply about the services they provide or the products they offer. Quality is their top priority. We work best with a person and company who understands that results online take real effort and time. There are no gimmicks, no hard sales pitches, and no shortcuts.
Just plain old boring sleeves-rolled-up hard work, the results of which eventually pay off. Doing what we love depends on finding the right client partners—people who value their craft, great design, our expertise, and also happen to be nice people. This means we may turn down work. We turn down the wrong fit to ensure we have the right fit. Staying true to our values and our clients’ values is how we come to work each day with a smile on our face. This ensures we consistently deliver high quality services and products to our clients.

We are Southerners
We live and work in and around the green forests of southern Appalachia, near Asheville, North Carolina and Atlanta, Georgia. The people and culture of the rolling hills of the Piedmont and mountains remind us to value authenticity over appearance. We are creatives ourselves. We know your work is your art and it reflects who you are. Your products are not a generic something out of a factory. They are unique. You tell stories. Whether it is with code, words, images, or sound, you have an inner drive to produce and create.
You need someone who understands how you work and what your needs are, both now and in the future. You need specialized knowledge to guide you through the website technical optimization, SEO, marketing, and digital asset management. We understand your needs. Our services enable clients like you to get found online and stand out, so you can focus on making your art and running your business. Our job is to get you found online so you can do what you love.
