The iMedia co-op is a group of industry professionals who specialize in branding, ad campaigns and social media. The co-op's event coverage and design work has been published by recognized media channels both locally and nationally (print/TV/online). Ongoing projects and the large number of other sites continually contributed to keep this parent site from being regularly maintained or updated. A recent portfolio of design & marketing work can be seen on the iartman facebook page. Have a Powerful Day!

What is the iartman design+media co-op?
This project has evolved over the years into a nationwide cooperative of friends who are fellow professional Artists, Graphic Designers, Photographers/Videographers, Coders, Writers, Actors and Filmmakers. We regularly collaborate on, trade or share creative work projects - be it logo design or websites, on location photoshoots, or special events promotion/coverage. Our network has done nothing but steadily grow over
the past few years which we attribute to advances in computing and social media. We also attribute our success to our resolve to work with positive, like-minded people and businesses. We have symbiotic relationships with our clients; we understand that our success is directly tied to their success.
At iartman design+media our business is to help others increase their business - and Business is Good!

Note from the founder:
"Art has been a part of my life ever since I can remember and has been with me though a variety of unrelated occupations that eventually lead me to this project. I am a US Veteran, former Detroit Police Officer and current activist for several causes that I believe in. I have done work for clients as large as the US Census Bureau and Nike, yet as small as Austin-area clubs and restaurants - and everywhere in between. I am now fortunate to have the freedom to hand-pick my projects and clients and build actual relationships with them; rather than the 'fast food approach' that I felt some of the larger agencies took.
My goal is to continue to grow as I help others grow and to use visual communication to help change the world in a positive way. Have a Powerful Day!" ~ Scott
Below is just one example of how successful branding took a local client form start-up to early retirement. Through consistent marketing, brand recognition and hard work he was able to quadruple his business and eventually sell it at enough of a profit to retire.
