WHO IS ROTATOR?
WE CREATE. IDEAS, STRATEGIES, DESIGNS, ART, JOKES, WEBSITES, COCKTAILS AT THE END OF LONG WEEK
ROTATOR is crafting an epicenter of art and design. Our design studio is located in the heart of Tacoma – on Pac Ave – across from the historic Old City Hall. We know about strategic positioning — we’re right next to two Tacoma brew-pubs. We have an extensive design library that we encourage other designers and creatives to utilize. Come share the afternoon with us sometime, you’ll likely go away invigorated and inspired.
WE EMBRACE ART AND BUSINESS WITH A BIG HUG. BUT SOMETIMES WE ARE UNSURE OF WHICH ONE TO HUG FIRST.
Lance Kagey is a catalyst of community connections — passionate about the inclusive call of art to create gracious space that invites people of all types to enter into dialog. Considered one of the area’s leading artists, designers and community builders. Lance connects. Art & design is his calling, but always toward the goal of connecting, neighbor to neighbor, business to client, problem to solution. He’s a street artist, a business leader, a community stirrer-upper. He is, most notably, the cofounder of the wildly successful guerrilla art project, Beautiful Angle — which has been going now for almost 20 years.
Kendon Shaw is a creative dynamo. He leads many of our brainstorming and strategy sessions. His expertise at ideation and strategy brings every project to top-level execution. Kendon’s strength lies in the tangible conception of complex ideas and the framework to build out these beautiful solutions. He is a big-picture-thinker who can see the whole while still managing the detail. He also is our social media lead and can help our clients increase the impact and connection they have with their audiences.
Adam is a creative mind, meticulous designer and creative problem solver. He transitioned from being a beloved Spanish teacher at an elite private school to applying that same discipline to design. He is fluent in translating client ideas and needs into smart design solutions. He connects with compassion, humor, and energy to serve as a key community builder. También habla dos idiomas.
Tyler is a talented designer and artist who combines creativity with problem solving to create great design solutions. He’s skilled at bringing all the pieces together and adding his own unique creative sensibilities to solve complex problems. He can also be seen (or not seen) hiking a trail or camping with his wife and dog and enjoying craft beers.
