We love the beach. We can't stress that enough! Nothing says relaxing like the ocean breeze, salty water, and sand in our toes. So when it came time to find a mark to help identify our own brand and identity, we didn't have to look very far.
Before Anntoine's conceptualization, co-owners Eddie & Jessica worked together in several other businesses and ventures. Wherever they seemed to go, a beautiful centerpiece of coral followed. Today, that coral is our trademark symbol; reminding us to relax, enjoy the moment, and look forward to each of our next beach vacations.
At Anntoine, we understand that every business' brand identity is unique. Therefore, no two businesses should be advertised in the same way. We recognize that the market is an ever-changing landscape -- so what might work one day, may not work the next. As a means to evolve our own brand and remind ourselves of this methodology, Anntoine undergoes a change in seasons falling on the first day of Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter.
Jessica has spent the first 15 years of her career creating innovative ways for businesses to grow. After opening her own marketing agency, she realized the need for beautiful design to accompany her marketing efforts. She then co-founded Anntoine with a trusted friend and incredible artist. In her spare time, she can be found at the local baseball field cheering on her very own all-stars or nestled in her kitchen with a stack of cookbooks and a glass of wine. She dedicates her success and drive to her "Popa," and is happy to begin the next chapter of her life doing what she loves to do... "Happy Day!"
Eddie leads Anntoine's creative team, campaign development, and branding efforts. He has spent more than 10 years building brands at a local, regional, and national level. He co-founded Anntoine in late 2014 after merging his own design group with Jessica's successful marketing firm. When he's not working late at the office on projects, he's solving conspiracy and economic theories, cheering on the Saints, or planning his next getaway. Eddie is the office whiskey aficionado and always takes the time to make the team at Anntoine laugh.

After graduating from the University of Southern Mississippi in 2013 with a degree in Marketing, she created her own Southern Life & Style blog, Because I Said So.

Lisa is Anntoine's resident finance guru. She brings more than 20+ years of experience to the Anntoine team and handles all the "numbers". When she's not at the office, she enjoys spending time with her family and grandchildren. She hates getting her picture taken and loves relaxing at the beach.

He's also a certified hip-hop head and can be found dancing in his car when no one is looking.
