Adrienne works closely with clients throughout each phase of a project to ensure all creative, marketing, and business objectives are met.

Her marketing savvy, technical expertise, and vendor insight allow her to complete complex projects on very tight schedules. She is highly skilled in both design and art direction, and has worked with many of the area's top writers, editors, photographers, printers, and consultants. Prior to founding Spin Advertising in 1999, Adrienne worked at ad agencies in Ann Arbor, as well as in-house at advertising departments for CST, a software development firm, and for The University of Michigan Medical School. Outside the office, Adrienne enjoys fishing, hiking, and gardening; and dreams of converting her desk into a working treadmill.

Thomas Cormie partner

With twenty-four years of experience within sales and marketing, Tom grew the business from a traditional print design studio to an integrated branding firm with full capacity in digital media. Tom's background brings a distinct marketing sensibility and strategy analysis to Spin Advertising. His career began at Gage Products, where he quickly rose to a leading Account Manager and Coordinator, in charge of sales and support to Ford Motor North America, managing staff members and handling all aspects of new business generation, development and client retention. A move into Business Development at CST as well as EnGenius brought Tom into the marketing and branding business segment, where he was in charge of coordinating marketing and sales materials. He joined Spin Advertising in 2005 and his efforts to oversee internal operations and heighten the firm's profile within the web-design and marketing community have been central to its success. In his spare time, Tom enjoys fishing, biking, trap shooting and cooking. He dreams of retiring to a quaint cabin on a stream or in a small village in Mexico.
