Lift The Ville - Louisville Relief Fundraiser

A Unified Effort To Support Louisville

We’re calling on our Kentuckiana family to support one another — by sharing expertise, sharing time, and sharing resources. We are one impressive and gifted community when we work together.

Let’s talk, let’s communicate, let’s look out for each other.

The Derby City has been through everything from depressions and recessions to floods and tornadoes. Every time, we’ve united and lifted the city.

This time will be no different.

Join us as we Lift The Ville.

Who is NerdBrand?

We know it’s a lot to ask others to pull out their wallets, especially at a time like this. It’s important to know what’s going on behind the scenes.

NerdBrand is a branding agency with our roots firmly in Louisville. Our team and clients extend throughout the city and state, and beyond to Southern Indiana and Tennessee.

It’s no more complex than this: we care about Louisville’s success, recognize the burdens of shutdowns throughout our community, and want to make an impact, however big or small that is.

I've built brands and created online experiences since I started my own company in 2008 called Capstone Creations. Today I help business owners develop strategies that are geared for growth and conversion optimization using WordPress website development and design. I love digital strategy. If it's in advertising, I love participating building teams and guiding companies to discovering new avenues of revenue.
