About us

Managing Director

Joseph Krahn

Ironically growing up, my design sense was inspired by sidewalk chalk cities that mapped out routes for our bicycles. I was ultimately inspired to become a web designer as a result of this creative outlet. After landing my first client, I realized how much I enjoyed the process. Since starting in web, I have contributed to several startup projects, and worked with over 50 clients at ShiloRune. As an entrepreneur – hosting 1 Million Cups weekly – I believe two of the keys to success are constantly learning and the ability to accept failure. In conclusion, “Failure isn’t fatal, but failure to change might be” – John Wooden.
