History

Since 2004, Go9Media has practiced what we preach: that everybody should get to play. Individuals and organizations of all sizes deserve unrestricted access to the best the Web has to offer, and we provide the guidance and expertise to bring the best to you.

Through our work on everything from the Don't Mess with Texas campaign to digital agency of record for HomeAway.com, Inc., Go9 has demystified the Web to help clients take advantage of its power. We've continued to create unique online strategies that reflect our clients' offerings while delivering a visually compelling, easy-to-use experience to the widest audience possible. And all with respect to business goals and budget.

Praise

"Go9Media is the go-to digital agency in Austin for re-branding work and complex creative project management. We engaged Go9Media at a time when we suffered from re-branding paralysis. During a time when good ideas were scarce and creative resources limited, Go9Media successfully transitioned our in-house creative work to their agency in less than a month's time. A genuine extension of our team, they masterfully project managed 35+ concurrent creative projects with competing launch dates and nailed every deadline."

Denise Montana

Denise Montana
Director of Web Development

For Denise, crafting websites is the perfect juxtaposition of art and science, precision and creativity, right brain and left. Since 2001, she has enjoyed the thrill and satisfaction of solving Web development challenges, leaving a trail of delighted customers in her wake. She gets a kick out of making sure that your website looks and operates as beautifully "under the hood" as it does in the browser. And to keep up in the fast-paced, ever-evolving Internet frontier, there's a good chance she's reading about code when she's not writing it.

Denise’s formal education includes earning a bachelor’s degree in business administration/accounting from the University of Florida, and a master’s of education in human resource development from The University of Texas at Austin, in addition to webmaster certification coursework.
