Phase2 Hires the SuperStar Media Team

Six New Team Members Mark Continued West Coast Expansion for the Firm

ALEXANDRIA, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/06/14 -- Phase2, the digital content strategy, design and technology experts, today announced the addition to its team of six developers and designers formerly employed by SuperStar Media, as well as its continued expansion in Portland, Oregon. The hiring is a reflection of the firm's increasing user experience, design and front-end development expertise, allowing it to not only create more innovative design solutions, but also to further provide services to a greater array of influential clients on the West Coast.

SuperStar Media, an interactive media agency specializing in Drupal, design and production, has worked closely with Phase2 on several client projects throughout 2013. Members of the Portland-based company were hired as permanent employees at Phase2 on January 1st, and SuperStar has closed its doors to help expand Phase2's visual design and technical capabilities in both front- and back-end development.

"We are excited to welcome our six new team members and their combined strengths in design and development," said Jeff Walpole, Phase2's CEO. "By hiring top industry talent like the SuperStar Media team, we will continue to drive more value to our clients by producing innovative digital and technology solutions."

SuperStar Media's co-owners, Joey Groh and Sean Kelley, closed down operations, seeing Phase2 as a strategic move for both the company and its team. Joey will join Phase2, while Sean will pursue a new entrepreneurial venture.

"It's an incredible arrangement for everyone," said Kelley, former co-owner of SuperStar Media. "Phase2, with its technical expertise and commitment to its clients, is an ideal place for my SuperStar colleagues, while I am thrilled to be pursuing a new and exciting project."

"My team members are excited to continue contributing to the challenging and fulfilling projects and client teams we have enjoyed being a part of throughout the past year," Groh, senior designer at Phase2 said. "Both companies are committed to providing creative and goal-driven digital solutions, and I'm confident that our team will benefit from the closer collaboration and high levels of expertise on both sides."

Most of the new team members will continue to work from their base in the Northwest, where Phase2 will expand its presence in a thriving tech community in Portland.
