how we roll
Walden Hyde integrates sustainability into brand stories and drives behavior change through uncommon creative campaigns.
And what are the results? Better business. Stronger brand story. Hi-fi relationships with your customers. And happier profits.
Our team of anthropologists, storytellers, sustainability experts, and award-winning designers like sunny days, tacky trails, steep rocks, and local beer. Get to know us below.
Robb ran Kickstand Communications, a Boulder, CO consumer insights and strategy firm prior to co-founding Walden Hyde. Way back when, Robb worked with some of the biggest brands in the world– including Motorola, Coke, and Milk– before spending more than a decade in the outdoor industry. Now, he’s in charge of making sure Walden Hyde is on the right path. This is evident on particularly nice mornings when Robb has a hard time getting his butt off his bike and into the office.
Lucia cut her teeth in the communications industry as a copy writer but soon fell in love with design. Moving through the art director ranks, she went on to found Sustineo Creative, and is now a founding partner and Creative Director at Walden Hyde. Along the way she wrote a book, West Virginia: The Land and Its People and traded her pointe shoes (she was a pro ballerina a loooong time ago) for only slightly more comfortable climbing shoes. She is the proud mom of two amazing daughters.
Katie Dunn‘s a poster child for Presidio Graduate School’s MBA program. She puts her mad skillz to work everyday heading up Walden Hyde’s consulting business. Besides her Jersey roots, here’s another little secret; this systems-thinking, social behavior-geek is also a total GLEEk. There! It’s all out of the bag now!
E-Train has worked for the most influential organizations in the bike industry pushing human-powered pedal-power. In 2011, she even helped bring bike share to Boulder, CO as Boulder B-Cycle’s Executive Director. Elizabeth takes care of the best clients in the world (ours) running the line between campaign tour guide and social behavioralist. She tells it like it is and our clients love her for it.
Stephanie graduated from Auburn University with a BFA in Graphic Design. She specializes in typography, logo design, and brand creation. She hales from Hotlanta, GA, climbs rocks…and sneaks off to get married at lunch.
Blair got her start working with Project M at the Pie Lab in Greensboro, Alabama. Her work has been featured all over the place including Communication Arts Magazine. When she’s not behind the computer, she’s usually exploring the Front Range on two wheels or hand binding books.
Rich helps shape Walden Hyde’s business. He was once head of product innovation at CP+B, has had his own successful product development firm, and he was a key player in turning around Schwinn back in the day. He also has a bike museum in his garage that his wife just loves!
From directing hunger and sustainability initiatives at Auburn University’s Hunger Solutions Institute to working as a chemical and biological weapons analyst in DC, it’s safe to say that Kate has a rather curious mind. This lends itself to creating mind-blowing insights and strategy. The Good Doctor Thorton’s collection of degrees is almost as impressive as her down to earth momming skills.
Cathy keeps our books all shiney. She’s also an astrology buff. This is a particularly useful tool in Boulder. Now, we don’t necessarily make business decisions based on what she tells us about the cosmos, but let’s just say that we may have evidence that we’re going to have a very good year this year.
