ThirdSide is a small, tightly-knit group of professionals. We spend each day working out challenges and trying to make the world a little bit easier for our clients and their customers. Our team has years of experience in marketing, sales, graphic design, environmental design, photography, web development, project management, writing, education, and general all-around creativity.
In the late 1990s, our co-founder, Lisa Cerezo, started designing and building websites as a personal hobby. People started to ask about her skills and she soon found herself building and managing websites for a small handful of non-profit organizations.
In 2010, Lisa’s husband Jason (our other co-founder) was laid off from a stable career and decided to leverage his marketing and design experience to start a marketing firm. While servicing marketing clients, he found that many of them had websites that were less than professional. People started asking for website work and ThirdSide was born! In May of 2011, we began offering professional graphic design and web development services to small- and medium-sized businesses and organizations.
Being part of a community means giving back to a community. Each year, we give to local non-profit organizations through free or reduced-cost services or cash donations. Some of our recent projects have included websites for the Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra, Feeding Our Kids, First Gig Rock & Roll Camp, and Rattle the Stars.
