We built a different type of web agency when we began in 1994. Creative expression has always been a calling card for us, but connecting client data to disparate technology systems puts the exclamation point on what we do. We're a unique and interesting collection of artists, technologists and digital minds. We are attracted to web problems while others turn away. And we make all platforms creatively match your brand. It's our sweet spot.

Jay Joyce and Bill McCown founded The Idea People model in 1993. They wrote down their thoughts at Atlanta's Varsity Drive-In, excited about building a full-service agency that included the web. Since the days of dial-up and floppy disks, TIP has adopted every modern technology discovery and creative trend. Jay and Bill didn’t just create a great idea and web company — they built a unique, successful and solid business platform for the entire TIP team to keep us highly-relevant and ahead of the curve.

That makes it all happen.

Pro Bono

We all enjoy the relationships with our non-profit partners. We see pro bono work as a direct reflection on our brand, so we commit long-term with our non-profit partners. TIP team members have such strong character, purpose and social responsibility in their lives that it fuels this work with energy and compassion. And we believe in their missions.
