After 10 p.m. and after 10 a.m., these are the peak creative times for two artists looking to expand their business into a new community.
After Ten Agency is a new full-service graphic design, videography and branding company located at 105A N. Bridge St. in downtown Chippewa Falls. The business was opened earlier this month by engaged couple Mike Neary and Allie Larsen. Neary has owned video production company Neary Studios since 2009 and Larsen has owned graphic design firm Point & Pixel Design for four years before moving their two businesses from Eau Claire to Chippewa Falls.
âWe were working together, but separately for so long,â Larsen said. âIt made it an easy segway when a lot of our customers were ready to make this transition with us. We already have a lot of connections in this community, so putting everything under one roof made perfect sense. “

Neary grew up in Chippewa Falls, graduating from Chi-Hi in the late 1990s, and he and Larsen graduated from UW-Stout with the intention of going into business. After years of sending clients for various needs, the two came up with the idea of ââmerging their businesses.
The creative couple, who will tie the knot in May, are also finding the time to volunteer for marketing classes at Chi-Hi to give the community back their professional home and instill a love for media / marketing in the community. next generation.
âWe’re an artist-run business,â Neary said. âWe are respectively specialists under our umbrellas, so whatever you can use visually to help promote your brand, we can help. It’s my hometown and I’ve always wanted to bring the business to this city. There is a real need here and we are delighted to bring our two businesses to this city. “
