Merry Band of Misfits

Meet the Misfits…Seriously why would you not want to work with us?

THE MYTH, THE MAN, THE LEGEND…

Chuck Eberhart or as we refer to him as “The Super Cool Master of all things Digital”. He’s like the Rico Suave of the marketing world. He is definitely the calm, cool and collected one. And if you don’t know who Rico Suave is…Google it! In all seriousness, Chuck is uber talented with an extensive background in radio with powerhouses such as Sony Music, RCA, Arista, Curb, MCA, Capital and Big Machine. In the late 90’s, Chuck added digital to his skill set and began working with those same labels by integrating digital media strategy into their marketing mix. His awareness of the power of media integration earned early recognition from many of theses labels.

For nearly 20 years Chuck and his trusted team of MISFITS have been providing digital marketing services to national companies and organizations like The Better Business Bureau of Central Ohio, Dayton, Idaho, and Arkansas; Prosper Technologies, Kohl’s, S.C. Johnson, California Closets, Complete Nutrition and Dogwatch Hidden Fence.

Closer to home, Chuck has worked with many recognizable Central Ohio brands such as  Three C Body Shop, Orthopedic One, Riley’s Country Painting, Silver Threads, North American Broadcasting, Dispatch Digital, This Week Community Media, Scope Aircraft, Midwest Retail Services and Benchmark Landscape.

Don’t you think Chuck looks like Kenny Loggins?

 

DON THE IDEA GUY

Brilliant is the word I use most often to describe Don. We have collaborated on several successful projects together including the North Market and BalletMet. When not holding a “Beer Storming” session with clients, you can frequently catch him at a local book store buying books…that he can’t possible read that fast. Don is one of my trusted cohorts when I am in a creative slump…yes those do happen from time to time.

Possessing creative powers beyond those of mere mortals, DON THE IDEA GUY rescues those in need of innovative ideas through his brainstorming sessions, articles, and websites.

DTIG (DEE-tigg) has been featured in Small Business News, interviewed by the New York Times, quoted in Fast Company magazine, and served as the first president of the International Idea Trade Association. With a name like DTIG, I think he may also possibly have a career in rap music.

He is so brilliant, he has a sign.
