Passion & Positive Energy

go!-mates are more than really good looking marketing nerds.  The creative energy in the air of our Benton Park space inspires us as we brainstorm the best solutions for you and your business. When not connected to a laptop or a whiteboard, you might spot us walking to the Mud House for a mid-afternoon coffee, or down on a Cherokee Street patio at our Friday team lunch.

Olivia is Lady of the Tasks at goBRANDgo!. She keeps her clients and go!mates on their toes with her cheerful, yet relentless email reminders, making sure every project is delivered on time, and on budget.

Sam Casey
Designer

Endless curiosity yields endless creativity.

When he’s not drooling over sexy typefaces, Sam spends his days designing everything that gets thrown his way, including, but not limited to, awesome websites. He desires to know all (true) facts contained by Wikipedia, exuding inspiration with child-like curiosity. He might be Peter Pan at heart, but he doesn’t live in Never-Never Land…this guy has some serious design and dev chops. Known around the office for his reckless confidence in drone operation and trampoline acrobatics, Sam never backs down from a challenge (or a game of PIG).

Shannon Levin
Jr. Designer

Play, with purpose.

New Jersey native Shannon joined the go!-Team after earning her B.F.A. from Washington University in 2017. She channels striking creativity into provocative design thanks to her sharp skill set and passion for technical knowledge, especially when it comes to typography. If you’re within a 5 block radius of our office, you might also hear her laughing, because when Shannon does something, she does it BIG. When she’s not designing or dancing in her desk chair, you might find her rummaging through bins at the Goodwill outlet, creating incredible illustrations, or eating pasta...in the shower.

Having the most organized desk in the office, she possesses a superhuman quality to manage projects and keep everything running on track when most people would be losing their minds. Alli introduced our office to the joys of French press coffee, and she often consumes an entire carafe before 9:00am.
