Justin Sturges


With over 15 years of marketing experience for companies ranging from Cisco and HP to small businesses, I have a broad range of experience to pull from. My interest in business has lead me to grow from my background as a designer to being a strong, business oriented marketing professional.  Throughout my career I have consistently expanded my skill set, widened my perspective, and provided increasing returns on marketing investment.

My base skill set is in creating visually stunning and highly effective marketing work that integrates copy and design at a high level. I can do this equally well myself or manage the process in print or online including SEO considerations. With these skills as my base I have grown into copywriting, internet marketing and higher level strategic marketing activities.
