Marketing...with BALLS!

Our Mission:

To Build Deep, Meaningful Connection

Humans have the amazing ability to form powerful bonds of all varieties with all manner of things, including each other. We commonly form deep emotional, intellectual, spiritual and even physical connections with the people and the environments around us because it helps us survive and thrive.

We’ve all had the experience of feeling deeply connected with a mother, a father or a child. A person can have a meaningful connection to their first car, their favorite sports team, their favorite color or book.  We connect on various levels with each other, with animals, with stories, and yes, brands and organizations. Because – at their core – brands, businesses, organizations and governments are really all just people.
Our mission is to help businesses and organizations build deep, lasting, fruitful and meaningful connections with their customers, clients, employees and all the stakeholders in their businesses.
Our mission is to help businesses and organizations build deep, lasting, fruitful and meaningful connections with their customers, clients, employees and all the stakeholders in their businesses. Because that’s what strong communities are made of. We do that by building meaningful relationships with our own clients. To us, you are more than just a number. You’re part of the 2oddballs family. And that’s not just blowing smoke. That’s one of our core values.

Our Values:

We Treat Our Clients Like Family.

This might be the most important section of this entire website, so if you made it here, good for you! Below is not just what we believe in, it’s how we strive to live and  conduct business day in and day out. 

We Treat Our Clients Like Family

This isn't just some platitude. This is how we see client relations. We prize personal, customized service over any one-size-fits-all approach. What works for one client may not work for another. One may prefer email communication and another may prefer a phone call. Fun Fact: one of our clients doesn't have an email or a smartphone! (We do this thing called "meeting in person". Crazy, right!?)

Attention to Detail

This has been on our list from day one, 1 Y.B. ( 1 Year of the Oddball), in the beginning there was attention to detail. Haha. But seriously folks, typos, grammatical errors, broken links, coloring outside the lines (unless done with specific artistic license, of course) NOT ON OUR WATCH! It's actually a hiring requirement of ours, and we get tricky with this one. See if you can spot it in the picture!

We Respect Our Employees

We joke a lot, but this is serious. Almost all of us here at 2oddballs are here because there is something about our last jobs we really didn't like. And this is America; we thought we could do this thing better on our own, and we were motivated and strong willed enough to put in that time and effort. And here we are! TAKE THAT MIKE (That's not a real person. I'm kidding.) Our philosophy here is simple: treat people the way you want to be treated. PS: We can respect Katy (pictured) and still think OUR cat is better. Just sayin'!

Meet The Team
We Believe in Social Responsibility

We believe that businesses have a vital role to play in lifting up communities across America. We are actively engaged in supporting the local LGBTQ+ community. and we worked with one of our clients to put together a program for area non-profits during the COVID-19 crisis, helping them to continue their work remotely. We also raised $1,000 for a veterans therapy program through that effort.

Our Story:

The road less traveled

2oddballs is more than just a company: it’s a philosophy. At 2oddballs we don’t believe in normal. We don’t do dull. We don’t build boring. We won’t have humdrum and we definitely won’t write wishy-washy (say that ten times fast!).

We believe that taking the road less traveled is a good thing. From 2016 to 2018 Kylie and I (Gabriel) traveled and worked our way to the far reaches of the globe, living in Taiwan and Ecuador respectively, and running our business remotely. But as our business grew, we saw the need to move back to the USA: there’s no place like home!

We now run our business from our office here in Springfield, MO. Our vision is to build a socially responsible, employee-responsive and client-centered business not limited by buildings or borders.

We hope to eventually build a business that allows us and many of our employees the freedom to explore the world as we once did. While most of our clients are here in the Ozarks, we do have clients in Alaska, Canada, and North Carolina. Our employees are free to work from home, and we emphasize the quality and completion of work over where and when the work is done. We find this model and attitude not only cost efficient, but morale-boosting as well.

We’re more than just goofy jokes and marketing. We’re part of a new generation of companies. We’ve set out to help build a better world one employee, one client, one business transaction at a time. We believe the business world is changing and that’s okay. 

Questions? We’d love to answer them! Don’t hesitate to Contact Us.

Co-Founder/Creative Director

Kylie Cassady

One of the original oddball masterminds, Kylie does a little of everything ’round these parts, but her primary duty currently is as the creative director. She makes sure all the output gets put out. Fun fact: she hand drew our “Zoodles” (the 2oddballs logo characters).

Co-Founder/Sales & Account Executive

Gabriel Cassady

The reason Kylie drinks (haha just kidding…mostly). Gabriel is always networking. Seriously, just try to get him to stop talking about all this stuff. He’s a true nerd for it. Fun fact: Gabriel is also a DJ and does magic tricks. He is essentially a walking party trick. (He was a weird kid. Obviously.)

If it was a be normal contest, we would lose.

The Oddballs

A rootin’ tootin’ rag-tag bunch of rebels if ever there was one! The 2oddballs crew eats nails and spits fire. You can just tell by looking at them they’re a mean group, huh? Okay but really, you’re looking at what amounts to decades of combined marketing, PR and design education and experience.

Meet the legendary

Oddball Network

We always want to give you the best. One of the ways we do that is by working closely with people who are the best in their field. We call them “The Legends”. They may not say that about themselves, but ask around town – you’ll see. No matter what your marketing, public relations, or design needs are, we have somebody who has the education and experience to make it happen. We love working with them and they love working with us. And we’ve been doing it long enough that we’ve got a smooth, seamless project management workflow. We’ll handle everything so you can focus on what you need to do.
