The evolved creative agency

Less suits & cigarettes and more mid-day dance parties. We enjoy a sunset cocktail, but like to start our days with sun salutations, lemon water, and tea. Our Human Resources department is led by our dogs named Love and Luz (Light).

#thefutureisfemale

We are a team of women + men who work well with women. We are intuitive. We ask great questions and we listen. We love change.

Honoring the creative

We choose work that brings us to life. We design our teams based on the unique needs of our clients and our passions & interests.

The power of purpose

Our stories create our reality. We see our work as nothing less than weaving our collective future, creating the world we wish to inhabit.

A sense of place

We walk barefoot on the beach, we harvest huckleberries, nettles and wild mushrooms. We know our neighbors and volunteer for local events. We love where we live because we are surrounded by makers, doers, artists, and miles & miles of open land and sea.

Principal + Chief Creative Strategist

Sarah Bodnar

As founder and dot connector at Bison Media, Sarah believes that our stories shape our world and we have no time to waste on the noise. Sarah has been accused of having a Californian palate and a New York mind. She considers both a compliment. 

Her expertise is developing custom communications strategies with a discerning creative flair for the unexpected. She makes salt from seawater and throws an axe for fun. 

Sarah's interest is simply feeding people and building topsoil, literally and metaphorically. She is co-founder of the local non-profit Good Farm Fund, and hosts a series of seasonal events at Farm to Table Mendocino.
