The Founder: 
My name is Marc, I am the owner of Wildstory  ( - a brand storytelling and content agency that helps purpose driven brands find and develop their identity so they may reach more customers.
Most of my clients are looking for someone who can blend the magical with the logical and discover what makes them special. I let them know that we are in the business of developing the story their customers tell themselves when using their product or service.  We want to find those people who will become crazy fans -- irrational loyalty -- to the point they will tattoo your brand’s logo on their body!
We specialize in brand strategy, verbal identity, visual identity, experiential brand, and content (especially video!). As a rule our clients don’t know where to start or how to get this done. This is where we come in.
