sound alike, then you understand why Evoke was founded.
Their job is to make dull organizations interesting and
interesting organizations irresistible. The owner and founder, Steven Skyles-Mulligan is a friend and we had the chance to talk recently when he interviewed me for his website and blog.

prestigious American Graphic Design Award for a

Evoke does not specialize in any one industry because the approach is-to see each
client as a fresh challenge.
Much to his mother’s dismay, Steven started playing with words at an early age. This has gotten him into all kinds of trouble and
numerous interesting assignments. Steven’s multi-faceted
background includes graduate study in art history and two stints as

marketing at a technology consulting firm during the tech boom. A
unifying thread in this varied experience is his driving need to understand
and communicate meaning and purpose.
