My name is Carter

I build distinctive websites
and charismatic brands

I turn big ideas into charismatic brands

You only have one chance to make a first impression—don't waste it. I help companies identify what makes them the "only" and then clearly express it through messaging and design.

RFYN

RFYN is an NFT-focused Web3 startup based in San Diego, CA. I worked with their founding team to develop their brand positioning, product messaging, and built their entire website.

Engineered Silicone Products

ESP is an international medical device company specializing in prosthetics and orthotics. I worked with them to rebrand their company, build an awesome new website, and revamp their product catalogue.

AirPods Pro

I have long admired Apple's design aesthetic (and my AirPods) so I decided to re-build their entire AirPods Pro page from scratch. I call this style of animated page experience "immersive product storytelling".

Fearless Journeys

Fearless Journeys is a community for entrepreneurs who share a love of travel and learning. I worked directly with the founder to develop the overarching business strategy, branding, messaging, and built a website with a custom navigation style that subtly conveys the adventurous personality of the brand.

SauceFest

SauceFest is a virtual concert series featuring indie artists from around the world. I was the executive producer and developed the website and all brand collateral. The festival was a massive success!

Carter is an extremely talented designer, marketer, and strategist. He gave our Web3 startup a North Star. Carter’s ability to capture what makes a company the “only” is very unique and rare in business. But he didn’t just help with brand positioning and marketing—he designed our entire brand atmosphere and even assisted with product design. I highly recommend Carter to anybody building in Web3.

Vice President @ Engineered Silicone Products

Whether guiding a team to execute his vision or executing on a plan himself, Carter strikes the perfect balance between leader and doer. Carter has one of the best minds for brand strategy that I've ever worked with and I have learned a great deal under his direction. I admire his zeal for taking on big challenges and solving complicated problems. When Carter sets his mind to a task, there are always amazing results.

Brandon Hill

Managing Editor, CentralSauce Media

I had a great idea but was unsure how to take it from conception to launch. Carter worked with me to build a custom business strategy and concrete marketing plan that helped me get my business off the ground. He showed me the value of prioritizing actions, remaining focused, and building out my personal brand. I guarantee that Carter will elevate your company.

Founder and CEO @ Gravitate Outdoors Adventure Co

As I launch my business, I feel very thankful for Carter's expertise and help—I could not have done this without him. He used insightful questions and structured strategy sessions to lead me to discover my REASON FOR BEING, and then translated it into a unique business concept, company mission, company name, marketing strategy, and even an incredible website that I love to share with others. I highly recommend working with Carter. He is no joke!

Founder and CEO @ Fearless Journeys, LLC

Carter has been my go-to guy for anything digital for over 2 years now. It is rare for a consultant to take such genuine interest while exploring your intentions and philosophy. He is a true artist who understands how to turn vision into messaging and design. Every conversation we have is a treat. This has been a very good investment.

Values that guide
my work

Values that guide my work

Begin with the end in mind.

The quality of your outcomes is determined by the clarity of your intentions. Take time to develop a clear picture of where you want to go before moving. The question is not "Can this be built?" but "Should this be built?"

Get the words right first.

Clarity always beats clever. It takes more than an idea to change the world—you must also get others to believe it. This is the most attention-poor era of human history, and clarity is more precious than gold.

Iterate, measure, learn.

Stubborn problems require flexible states of mind. When the problem seems unmovable, we must be agile and light. When it refuses to change, we must experiment and change around it. Using an agile prototyping process is the best way to maximize resources and make judgments based on validated learning.

Put the mission's success above everything.

To accomplish big things, you must be solution agnostic and put your ego to the side. Advocate passionately for what you believe is the correct way forward, but have the wisdom to know that the mission's success is more important than your pride.
