Since the formation of The Walrus Group in 2000, our partners have expanded upon our core, client services foundation into additional ventures, both B2B and consumer oriented, creating an expanded network of specialized services and products.
Walrus Group LLC
Our core operation, the Group traces back to 1996 - when partners Jim and Sarah Bradley founded Savage Arts, an independent design firm that worked exclusively with the music, film and post-production markets. As we evolved into The Walrus Group in 2000, we expanded our reach to include more traditional corporate communication and advertising markets while maintaining our operational emphasis on small, agile teams - folding in additional core competencies in video and film production and post-production alongside our print, branding and interactive media operations. This unique, born-of-interactive culture has evolved in the ensuing years - creating a hybrid firm that bridges the capability and expertise of the traditional agency model with the agility and intimacy of the newer interactive boutique model. The success of this approach is apparent: from client-centric efforts for some of the world's most respected brands to our own consumer-oriented brands - we've developed a reputation for no-nonsense, results-driven creativity that our customers and clients turn to time + time again.
What began as an experiment in direct-to-consumer design and commerce has become, in three short years, the preeminent online destination for professional-grade Themes and Templates for Apple's iWork and iLife application suites. KeynotePro.com
launched in the Spring of 2003 with our PitchBoards
line - a theme set designed to enable film and video professionals to bring Keynote's ease-of-use to digital storyboarding and pitch presentations - instantly opening an untapped professional market for Apple's newly-released presentation software while staking a new high-ground for flexible, off-the-shelf presentation designs. In the years since, KeynotePro has expanded to offer a wide range of highly-acclaimed presentation themes and document templates, pushing the line forward with a continuing tradition of firsts including HD themes, real-time motion graphic integration with Quartz Composer, and our latest EP Edition Themes optimized for exporting elevator pitches to the 5th-Generation iPod with Video.
