Dave Gilbert is the COO of Stray Media Group, which allows him to create new business developments and build customer relationships with creative art direction and employee development.
With a sales, merchandising and marketing background, I decided to start my own company, Stray Media Group, 10 years ago. We focus on an area that was missing in the marketing industry – full dedication to the growth of our customers to help them reach their full potential.
I have always been creatively inclined, so I started to create a career around it with a sign and design company, which has now grown into a full-service marketing team.
Stray Media Group is a full-service marketing company that meets our customers where they are and helps them achieve their goals and full potential through marketing strategies and implementation. As Founder and Managing Partner of Stray Media Group, my job profile is diverse and includes everything from new business development and customer relationship building to creative art direction and employee development.
Anything that is colorful, engaging and thoughtful in its design approach.
Clean, simple, well-thought-out and actionable designs that transcend different audiences and target groups to allow viewers to get own message out of them.
Our design style at Stray Media Group focuses on standing the test of time. Timeless fonts, design elements, clean and simple – these are the things you can look at 10 years from now and see a design that is still relevant.
We start with our customer’s goals and consider their branding needs first. With these elements in mind, we then search for inspiration and begin creating something that uses modern, forward-thinking design style and characteristics that elevate their brand while getting their message across in a clear, concise manner.
Everyday life. Inspiration is all around us, all day long.
What I find most exciting about the digital industry is how these mediums are served up to the consumers. The technology behind these platforms and the constant changes are fascinating and make you eager to see what the future will bring.
Thank you! Our team was thrilled to be a part of this project and delighted to be able to share our customer’s success with their new site by receiving this award. We put passion into everything we do and being recognized for the work we produce for our clients is an extremely rewarding experience.
We chose to enter the Paragon Pro Manufacturing Solutions web redesign project because of its drastic before and after transformations. The project had a strong focus on making the user-experience as seamless as possible while updating the look and feel of the site to something more modern and aesthetically pleasing; a skill our company has worked diligently to accomplish in our work.
By far, the biggest challenge on this website redesign was to portray the cutting-edge solutions they offer to accurately showcase their variety of products and services while simultaneously making the flow of the website as user-friendly as possible.
Winning multiple international awards over the years has helped to boast our creative talent and expertise, which ultimately allows us to have more freedom in working with our clients to produce great work.

Enormous amount of talent in individuals and companies that are always on the leading edge of technology, pushing the limits to move the digital industry forward.
Who knows?! That is what I find so exciting about the industry – it will continue at an even faster rate of technological advancement and offer developers and end users limitless possibilities.
Put in your 10,000 hours in and keep striving to be the best at what you do and adapting to the changing industry while maintaining the integrity of your design style.
We love tutorial videos, and it’s so important to never lose the desire to learn, grow and challenge yourself.
An old boss and mentor from the retail industry. He instilled in me the importance of hard work and drive, helping me to develop my career and continue making goals even today.
Not being afraid to put in the work. It’s been said that if you do what you love you’ll never work a day in your life. I like to take that a step further and say it does take hard work and commitment, but when you love what you do it makes the process so much more rewarding.
Always have an excellent content writer on-hand to help you sound exceptional!
