David Garrard

Chief Innovation Officer

As the founder of Un_Standard and resident Agent Provocatuer, it is David Garrard’s job to work closely with small businesses and entrepreneurs to infiltrate from within. But unlike the traditional Agent Provocateur, whose job is to wreak havoc, David’s duty is to take those small businesses out of their comfort zone and gently nudge his clients into new and exciting areas. The client's ability to effectively evolve depends on having an open mind, a willingness to build on the past and a healthy appetite to go where others have feared to tread. David guides his clients through this area, which often times can be dark and confusing. He’s more than happy to apply his twenty plus years of marketing and branding experience to help solopreneurs, small businesses and startups achieve their wants, needs and desires.

Hallie Tosis

Official Mascot

Hallie Tosis is the official mascot of Un_Standard. Her journey here at Un_Standard began as a stray that showed up one day on our doorstep. She was malnourished, but incredibly friendly. We wanted to make sure that she went to a good home. And there’s no better place to be than here at Un_Standard. She’s gone from having to forage for food in trash cans to having her own designated toy box. She’s forged relationships with pen pals across the world. She loves her audience on Twitter and on Facebook. But most of all, she loves taking naps on her handmade blanket. And making the bed. And getting brushed. And playtime. And eating.


We love what we do. And we do what we love. Passion is what drives us. Things get us excited. We love solving problems. We love good design. Sometimes we eat too much. Sometimes we sleep too late. And we love to laugh. Here’s a few stats on what we love here at Un_Standard, and a few things that we’re not so keen on.
