Get to Know the Killer Team
Amy owned her first company, a candy store and ice cream parlor, at the age of 17 before heading off for college. She subsequently built a successful career in SEO and marketing, and has headed up SEO at several companies. In 2009, she partnered with Nick Grant to build lead generation–based websites, but in the fall of 2010, the business pivoted to an entirely new model: visual communication design.
In the years since, Amy has grown Killer Visual Strategies to become the leader in its industry, driving communication and content marketing solutions for such global brands as Microsoft, Boeing, Adobe, Nikon, Starbucks, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the United Nations. Considered an expert in her field, Amy has spoken at more than 175 conferences around the world, including SXSW, Adobe MAX, and SMX Advanced. She is also an Inc.com columnist, a teacher at the School of Visual Concepts, a guest lecturer at the University of Washington, and a LinkedIn Learning and Lynda.com instructor.
Since beginning her job at Killer Visual Strategies in 2014, Lauren has managed hundreds of static and motion graphic projects, and continues to grow in her role as executive account strategist. She works alongside the account coordinator and director of client success to build strong relationships with our clients, develop strategies that support their goals, and facilitate communication throughout and across projects.
Grant began his career experimenting with web design and development while working for a small publishing startup. What started as a few freelance web design gigs quickly grew into a full-time consultancy, and then into a boutique Seattle web studio serving local giants such as Nordstrom and Big Fish Games.
Since then, Grant has led digital services teams of all shapes and sizes, working on campaigns and developing partnerships that drive hundreds of millions of engagements for Fortune 100 brands all over the world, including Microsoft, Coca-Cola, Starbucks, and ESPN.
When not immersed in digital strategy, you can find Grant exploring Seattle’s culinary landscape (he recommends you visit the chef’s counter at Miller’s Guild), or enjoying the great outdoors with his partner and their two dogs.
Since Erin took on her marketing/PR role, Killer has been named a member of the Inc. 5000 for 3 years in a row; has been featured in such publications as Inc., Forbes, Mashable, and the Huffington Post; and has been invited to present at such conferences as SXSW and SMX Advanced.
At Killer, Blake has loved the opportunity to work in the disciplines of design, illustration, and animation, and pursue learning in new visual arenas as well. He approaches every project as an opportunity to use design to create beautiful and effective solutions. He’s young in his career, but already feeling the benefit of cutting his teeth at an expert visual communication agency.
