Bryan Heredia, front-end developer and designer
We’re happy to welcome Bryan Heredia to our interactive team. Having started as a graphic design intern here he has already had an opportunity to learn the ropes. Bryan will be bringing his creative genius over to the interactive team focusing in on front-end design/build. He’s a Bryan-of-all-trades, if you will.
In college, Bryan studied graphic design and somewhere in there, he taught himself coding. At envisionit, he’ll be programming, designing, programming design, and designing programs. No big deal, really. “It’s all problem solving,” he reasons, a skill he applies in his own time when creating silk-screened posters, animation, and photography projects in the wee hours of the morning.
Our team continues to grow! Meet our new copywriter and Sr. website developer.
Deborah Fellinger, Junior Copywriter
Deborah’s whole life has been one big multichannel writing project. When she was in fourth grade, she created her own print magazine. When she was in college, she wrote a snarky fashion blog. When she graduated from Columbia, she took her journalism skills to Yelp and The Local Beet. Now that she’s joined our creative team, she’s revving up our interactive projects with her wit and writing prowess. And when she’s not writing for us, she’s writing for her own two blogs and tweeting about everything else in between. Prolific much?
Mick Wroblewski, Senior Web Developer
Mick can tackle any interactive programming challenge we throw at him. It’s sort of like adding another superhero to our already inhuman interactive team. Before joining us he worked at an interactive agency in Evanston and developed for apartments.com. Before that, he earned his degree in computer science from the University of Iowa. When Mick’s not schooling us on the finer points of database development, he stays busy schooling his nephews on the finer points of Chicago sports fanaticism.

It’s true—meet the newest members of our team, Mikky and Grant. They’re here to help us drive strategy, foster strong client relationships, come up with smart ways to make search marketing work for businesses, and bring their marketing know-how to the table.
Mikky Wright, Senior Account Manager
As someone who has owned his own successful businesses in Chicago, Mikky’s marketing strategy and management skills are invaluable when it comes to working with the clients to help them grow their business. He absorbs any and all information he can get his hands on, giving him a well-versed scope on any project he undertakes. It’s no wonder, then, that some of his favorite things to do outside the office cover a variety of activities: sculpting, painting, playing baseball, and dream analysis.
Grant Sabatier, SEO/SEM Account Manager
Grant comes to Chicago via Washington, D.C. with seven years of experience in online marketing and SEO/SEM work. Here at envisionit media, he’s responsible for developing sound SEO and SEM strategies for our clients. In his downtime, he collects guitars (17 at last count) and enjoys the fine sounds of electronic ambient music, which he says goes well with SEO work.

Jill, Blaire, and Winston have been with us for a short time now, but they’ve done so much in those months that we can’t remember what it was like without them. Technical genius, organizational flair, and expert snack-making are just a few of the skills these guys have to offer.
Jill Fruhwirth, Associate Project Manager
Jill enjoys staying busy. She honed her management skills overseeing the Marketplace at Sears.com and can now be found running around our office working with the interactive, account, and creative teams to make sure projects stay on schedule. In her downtime, she’s likely running around outside—playing soccer, volleyball, golf, skiing, biking—and brushing up on her Spanish.
Blaire Peroff, Traffic Manager
Our traffic manager Blaire is a “lifetime Hoosier,” zealous concert-goer, and lover of dogs. She’s also responsible for managing the entire workflow at EIM, mapping out schedules, and overseeing quality control—basically, she makes sure projects don’t catch fire. It’s a tough job, but Blaire’s been at it for many years now, and the fact that nothing’s caught fire yet is a testament to her dexterity.
Winston Tsao, Senior Web Developer
Winston is multilingual: Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP, ASP.NET, C#, and ActionScript, just to name a few. Working with computers has been a passion of his since he was a teenager, and now he works his magic on any and all programming at EIM—making sure technical aspects of our clients’ websites are functioning properly. After the workday is over, his toddler twin daughters boss him around.

This past week, we cleared off a few desks, secured some stray computers, and welcomed two new team members. Let’s get to know them, shall we?
Account Supervisor Lisa Cardarelli—on the left—worked for the largest full service interactive agency in Tampa before leaving for the balmy shores of Lake Michigan. Now that she’s here, she’ll be helping envisionit media grow new and existing business while further amping up our SEO/SEM capabilities. When she’s not in the office, Lisa will be hard at work discovering all the best shopping that Chicago has to offer her and her little Yorkie, Coco.
Copywriter Holly Grigalunas—on the right—comes to us with years of experience in marketing writing for a number of industries, across a variety of channels. She’s excited about contributing her skills to both our clients and to our internal envisionit media team. When she’s not writing for work or pleasure, Holly’s either at yoga class or a gastropub.
Welcome, Lisa and Holly!
