VIEO started to become the web design agency we are today when Holly Yalove joined the team in 2009 as the CMO. Her considerable marketing and corporate management skills were essential to the growth we would experience in the coming years.
In 2011, VIEO won our first web design award, a silver ADDY—and we never stopped. We won our first gold ADDY in 2013, and we've racked up an impressive trophy shelf since that time.
For VIEO, 2013 was a year of change. We implemented our first national ad campaign, became a HubSpot partner agency, and almost doubled in size. It not only brought us a number of our leadership team members; 2013 also set the tone for the company we are today.
After becoming a HubSpot Partner Agency, VIEO rose quickly
We're beautiful inside and out! In 2016, VIEO received an award for "Top 51 Visually Appealing Websites Using Inbound Marketing" for the first time (we earned another one in 2018)! Turns out people love our "eye-catching design" and user-friendly layout.
As an advocate of inbound marketing, the VIEO team spends a lot of time cultivating our informative and pun-fueled blog. In 2017, we were thrilled to see just how helpful it’s been—the blog was included as #31 in the Top 100 Inbound Marketing Blogs!
We celebrated our 10th year in business in 2018. Our Chief Strategist & Principal, Holly, wrote this blog post all about what we dubbed as our "Tennenial." It goes into more detail about our adventures as we've grown.
At VIEO, we know that our team is our most important resource. Our people have a wide range of talents, interests, and experiences, and it's for that reason that we have so much to offer to our similarly diverse clientele. As a company, we believe in giving our employees valuable educational experiences alongside exciting career opportunities. Not only does this ensure that we’re always at the top of our game for our clients, but it also keeps our team happy and engaged in our success as a company.Meet Our Team
VIEO (pronounced "VEE-oh") is a Latin word meaning “to weave together.”
Our co-founders Rob Spurlock and Paul Gibson came up with our unique name before VIEO even had a website, inspired by the way they were weaving together the artistic and technical elements of web design and marketing.
Little did they know that years down the road, they would be getting search traffic for "vieo XXX" and other, shall we say, unrelated search terms involving a misspelling of the word "video."
Even though our name began as a bit of a stumbling block, the search engine optimization (SEO) skills that we've honed over the years have helped us not only overcome that challenge, but go on to become one of Alexa's top 150,000 sites in the world.
Our team's collective years of experience and impressive range of skills are just a couple of the things that make us unique. We also like to be ourselves, and create an environment for our clients that is both professional and easygoing.
We set ourselves apart through superior customer service and ongoing dedication to quality for every project, from consultation to completion. VIEO treats our customers as a part of our family, focusing on clear communication and active support to maintain great rapport and strong relationships with our clients.
Sure, sometimes we get distracted for a few minutes by a funny viral video or spend too long debating whether light sabers are possible, but who we are is key to what we do. Our creative energy is the source of our innovative ideas and quality-driven work ethic, and we give each project everything we’ve got.
