Hendrik van Vuuren, Partner
Hendrik, a native of South Africa, is a front-end design specialist with a background in Management Accounting. Interesting combination, no? Hendrik holds a bachelor's in finance from Stellenbosch University and an MBA from Tulane University, and finds his financial expertise is an enormous help as he helps client companies devise creative strategies that lead to business growth. We he isn't managing Sting's creative team, you might find Hendrik cruising on his '77 Harley Sportster, watching rugby or sculpting in this cast glass studio.

Erin van Vuuren, Partner
Erin is an established copywriter/editor with extensive web content experience. She is a wordsmith at heart, and was recently hired by the nation's largest electric utility, Duke Energy, to edit and rework their web content ahead of a pending merger. Erin also regularly pens marketing copy for this Fortune 250 company. Erin has written hundreds of editorial features - published across the web on sites like Yahoo! Shine and, and syndicated to newspapers across the U.S. In addition, she ghostwrote a book found on the shelves of major booksellers.

Erin takes pride in her ability to shape her writing style and tone to best represent individual brands, and her penchant for chiseling away unnecessary copy, leaving behind nothing but a clear message in a friendly voice.
