DIFFERENT x DESIGN™
Stratatomic was founded on the idea that when you take any large ad agency, and strip away the layers of administrators, support and billing clerks, you find a few bright people doing the work for the client. We are those bright people. We are Innovators. Craftsmen. Artists. We are partners, working hard to build your success while creating a quality product that we can all be proud of.
We are a combination of energetic thinkers and creative talent that produces extraordinary results. Our organizational chart is a circle, with you in the middle. Our company is focused on you and your success. We are transparent, always available, and easy to work with.

Michelle Owens serves as vice-president, social media director and lead print designer at Stratatomic LLC. Michelle is also our Google Ads specialist and has more than 25 years of experience in the advertising and print industries and has worked with clients including American Heart Association, Goodwill Industries, Greenville Business Magazine, Southern Tide, and Southern Wesleyan University.

In 2015, Michelle and Ryan teamed up to create The Chillwagon, a completely analog adventure and family business that delighted the Upstate with handcrafted, USDA Certified Organic ice cream, served from a vintage and fully-restored 1965 Divco milk truck. Everything was created from scratch, from the homemade ice cream, to the Divco restoration and conversion to a working ice cream truck, to the name, brand, trademark, social media and all facets of marketing and operations. The business quickly exploded, and in less than 3 years an out of state buyer expressed interest in acquiring the business, and the time was right for an exit strategy that acheived a >300% return on investment. More importantly, many friendships and memories were made, and we were able to bring a little happiness and joy to the community in which we live. That folks, is how you build a brand.
