Marketing Strategy


Hi, I'm Bobbi. Since 2003, I've been in the world of freelance marketing as the principal at Pie in the Sky Studios. I help people solve problems with visual solutions of all kinds. My professional experience goes back about 10 more years to the creative side of the ad agency world. It was there I learned the ins and outs of the business, but was especially drawn to branding and visual strategy. I work from my in-home studio, which is cozy and naturally full of visual stimulation, but my 'team' often involves way more than my ‘housecat’ co-worker. Clients become friends, and other talented people I partner with become co-workers. If I'm not at the computer making something pretty, I can be found out in nature with my camera, in my backyard watching things grow, or with my oikos (that's Greek for family) pointing the world to Jesus Christ, my personal savior and friend. 

I am fortunate to do much of the work I do with my partner and bestie, Carey Grosdidier. Carey left her job as an associate creative director at South Dakota’s largest ad agency years ago because God told her she should. No, really, He did (and she did). Since that crazy day, she does what she loves - writing and concepting - every day from her home office in Mitchell, SD. She works with lots of amazing clients and talented freelancers doing really fun things like naming businesses, creating branding campaigns, launching events and brainstorming with smart people. I’m extremely fortunate to have her in my life AND my work. If you’d like to know more about Carey, email her here: carey@writebraincreative.com
