Our Values

Partnerships

GDS-OurValues-Partnerships

Everyone we work with we consider a partner. We strive to become your partner, not a vendor, because we’re at our best when we work with you, and not for you. With our synergistic approach with any of our partners, whether you’re a start-up, a small business, or a Fortune 500 company, we’ll create a mutual win-win situation.

Transparency

GDS-OurValues-Transparent

Integrated Digital Marketing requires a lot of behind the scene work that our clients don’t often get to see. In light of that, we provide opportunities for you to learn what we’re doing through our online educational programs, business consultations, and systematic approach to customer service. No surprises!

Innovative

GDS-OurValues-Innovative

With our insight into multiple technical solutions for any given problem, we’re able to think outside the box and come up with the proper strategy and solution for you. We’ll help you make the right decisions by educating you on all the available options out there so you know exactly what you’re getting. Our goal-save you money!

Lean

GDS-OurValues-LeanMentality

We have a  lean mentality with the solutions we provide to our clients, just as much as we value our team staying lean within our company. We remove the extra unnecessary steps by reusing code instead of spending vital resources redeveloping the same code, or by backing our decisions with data instead of assumptions.

Woodland Creek Furniture

Woodland Creek Furniture

Woodland Creek started with an idea to make unique rustic furniture from exotic woods. During the summer of 1997 Robert Evina, Woodland Creek’s founder, traveled extensively through remote villages in Russia, Ukrainia, Romania, and Hungary. During his travels he came across beautiful exotic woods. Having watched his uncles in Alaska craft log homes and rustic furniture, he knew the exotic woods would make some very interesting rustic furniture
