Over the next few years, Justin studied marketing and how to maximize brand exposure and secure new clients. Today, Justin has successfully helped operate four companies. One of those companies has become a leader in the healthcare marketing space, HIP Creative.
Co-Owner, Chief Creative Director
Luke has always had a knack for entrepreneurship since he was mowing lawns at 12 years old. Since then, he has taken up graphic design and honed his creative side. Luke also began to explore different mediums for design, such as video. In 2007, He started working for a company where he created video advertisements for online newspapers across the country. This is where he found what he truly enjoyed doing. Because of his newfound passion, he went to the Savannah College of Art and Design and studied Motion Media. After graduation, Luke moved to New York City and worked in post-production, motion graphics, and design. But this is not where his road to discovering what he wanted to do ended. Luke knew he wanted to start his own company. This is when he began researching business models with recurring revenue, specifically around design and advertising. With social media on the rise, everything pointed to building a marketing agency focused on real, long-term results that would turn a profit sustainably on 12-month contracts rather than on a per-project basis. Justin and Luke formed HIP Creative, and have grown the company to become a leader in the healthcare marketing space. Together, Justin and Luke look forward to delivering incredible results for BuildingOnline clients!

Digital Marketing Manager
Adrian helped start a web design company in Seattle back during the dot-com bubble (and through the dot-com bust), using his background as an English and Communications major to create and edit content for clients. This led to a career path in SEO and eventually project management at Microsoft. After years in Seattle, he felt a desire to leave the gray rainy climate. He moved back to the emerald coast and its white sand beaches that he fell in love with growing up in Pensacola, where he has been fortunate to find a great match with HIP Creative.
Zach takes pride in creating new software that delights clients and meets their needs, as well as breathing new life into aging systems. He is perpetually excited about technology’s ability to bring new worlds into being and optimistic about its potential for the future.
Andrew’s goal in design is always to create work that is just as unique and meaningful as the folks he gets to meet and work with. When he’s not in the middle of a project, you can find him spending time with his wife or leading worship at his local church.
