We Help Businesses Grow While Doing What We Love, Everybody Wins
Based in Melbourne, FL, we are a remote or “distributed” agency, meaning we work outside the confines of an office. This allows us to work more effectively and provides a freedom that benefits our clients, as well as our families. With wifi and an abundance of coffee, we get more work done and enjoy every minute of it.
Our local team consist of myself (Mike Oliver) and Inbound Marketing specialist Ryan Shelley, while our remote colleagues are based in the US, England and France. By combining our experience and ambition with a seamless and effective workflow, we are able to deliver our clients a higher level of service and commitment.
After 10 years agency experience I began a freelance career and Zephyr Studio was created. With a foundation based on brand identity design and magazine production, I transitioned my focus to website development in 2010 and became obsessed with WordPress. As business grew, I realized there is only so much I can do in a day, so I began collaborating with other freelancers to take on more work. Realizing how this benefited everyone involved, and how I was able to scale my business, it has been my model since.
My typical day involves a calculated mix of building websites, managing our clients WordPress Care Plans, email marketing, and identity design. With the remote team in place, proving beneficial both financially and in quality of life, we hope to expand our team and continue to build long term partnerships with our clients.
