Bringing local to the forefront of our community.

​TIS helped Local First get up and running from the start with the help of co-founder Rob McCarty and the TIS team. Through BALLE (Business Alliance for Local Living Economies), Local First created a network for local businesses to team up and fuel local by locals. After branding the organization, we strategically marketed to businesses and saw membership growth increase. It was clear that the campaign created the impact necessary to get the community on board. TIS has guided the evolution of this brand over the last 12 years, conceptualizing and designing content for web, brand management, development, and campaigns, while maintaining the core value of putting local, first.
