We’re excited to meet you.

Stone Interactive Group is a full service web design and online marketing agency

We succeed when you succeed. And to ensure that happens we have drawn together some of the most talented problem solvers around to provide the latest web marketing solutions for your company.

Stone began in 2003 as a Web Design and Interactive shop. Soon after, our founders Mark Lipowski and Joel Beals realized the potential of search optimization and marketing for their clients—combining Strategy, Creative Services, Web/App Development, and now Web Marketing into a comprehensive offering.

With over 300 web projects under our belts, we’re more than ready to handle anything thrown our way.


Philosophy

Listen first.

We dive-in to our client’s world first. Then we let 13 years of web company experience do the rest.

Keep it simple.

Whether it’s strategy, design, or copy — simplicity of message drives our work.

Smile. It shows in the work.

We don’t wear suits. We drink good beer. We like each other & we love happy clients. Looking for a job?

Trust each other.

Successful projects involve clients who trust us. It’s what we’ve done 300+ times over.

It's not about us.

We’re a web company who loves to make noise—for our clients. “The client. The client. The client.”

Be audacious.

Clients don’t hire us to be safe. Brave ideas are what get noticed. Let’s get you noticed.

“The longer I’m in this field, the more exciting things get. Our team is able to help clients in so many ways, but it all starts with the basics. Build trust, build traffic, and turn that traffic into transactions. I’ll work with you to figure out how to hit your online objectives. Need us to get super creative, or hit aggressive timelines? We do that every day.”

With an effective mix of marketing, strategy, and interactive experience, Mark fills the role of Client Strategy Lead. His approach to the work is based upon the simplest of philosophies: Deliver exceptional value to the client and enjoy the process.

Over the last 14 years, Mark has had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of the Mid-west’s major brands including Volkswagen, Dow Corning, and General Motors. With an undergraduate degree from Cornell and an MBA from Michigan, Mark fully understands that the classroom is no substitute for real world experience.

Say hello to Mark.
