ImageDESIGN + Nine10 Merger

To our valued and respected clients, staff, friends & partners:

ImageDESIGN has some very exciting news to share with you!

In December 2021, Marcus Vanstone purchased imageDESIGN from his founding partner, Nan Swanson. As part of this transition, Marcus opened a conversation with Ryan Blais from Nine10 who had also recently bought out his business partenrs, Cris Seppola & Richard Podsada.

The conversation grew from a seed of an idea to a spirited agreement that would combine the two Peace Region leading agencies to maximize their product & service offerings. Having been in the market for 16 years (nine10) and 22 years (imageDESIGN), their wealth of experience speaks for itself and as a team, they can equip you with a complete road map for all of your branding and digital marketing needs. Although the merger is taking place in 2022, the initial dialogue about “one day merging” began 10 years ago when Ryan shared office space with imageDESIGN for his then startup GoSocial.

With these two brands, personalities and unique skill sets combined, the partners believe they can offer a full & complete digital marketing experience that includes everything from creating a brand from scratch to learning how to use it like a seasoned professional.

The new nine10/imageDESIGN is committed to streamlining your digital presence & performance while providing an innovative education that will elevate your business & your brand in the market.

On behalf of Marcus & Ryan, we are sincerely grateful for your continued support and we look forward to serving you with a creative passion, a drive for continued improvement and a dynamic energy for years to come!
