Based in Portland, OR

We create interactive brand experiences that resonate globally – and we do it as a team.

Most people are surprised to find out we’re a small agency, especially when they learn we’re 100% in-house. But if there’s one thing our group agrees on, it’s the importance of quality! And we believe the key to quality is in strong personal relationships.

When you work with KindTyme, you work with all of us. We are close friends who share creative ideas in-and-out of the office, and we take pride seeing all of our skills and expertise come together in the work we produce.

Our collaborative style makes sure that all of our team members have a relationship with our brands, so there’s a good chance you’ll meet us all someday!

Bridget Renee

CMO // Brand Strategist

Born and raised on the west coast, Bridget moved to Portland shortly after getting her degree in Film & Business from the University of Oregon.

As the Marketing Director, Bridget manages both our in-house and our partners’ marketing efforts. Her role is to analyze your current brand & marketing performance in order to find new opportunities that help guide our creative projects to success.

“Every business is different, so I love learning the little details about each brand we work with. At this point in the cannabis industry, most businesses have tried a few marketing strategies that lost money – but many haven’t figured out which ones yet. My favorite part of my job is helping identify those weak spots, so I can help build a competitive & efficient strategy that ties in the most creative elements possible.”

It has been amazing to be involved in the cannabis industry as it transforms from the black market mentality into a more business-oriented mindset, and finding clever solutions to all the technical requirements that come with that transition.”
