SEA

mute icon Vanessa Casarrubias

Partner / Chief of Staff

Part woman, part Wallace (her dog), Vanessa is Manufactur and vice versa. PM, Strategist, Peace bringer. She is the glass ceiling that isn’t there, she is the breeze that blows in from Santa Ana. She is the candle that is always LIT.

The designer affectionately known as RayHay. Talented, quiet, best dressed. Drawing on inspiration from the far reaches of the internet, she keeps us current on Tiktok, Ariana Grande, memedom, and everything in between.

LAX

mute icon Yauna Olmstead

Project Manager

When she’s not running client projects from the LA office (or home), Yauna can be found shooting photos, styling shoots, editing video, and just generally being as kind as she is smooth (as in “very”).

RDU

mute icon Brooke Nivens

Strategist / UX

Poet, planner, video artist. Brooke is fearless, tireless, and painfully cool. Was she simply born 30 years too late? Or did a Gen X hipster dude somehow get Freaky Friday-ed with a Gen Z girl? Whatever the case, we’re eternally grateful that this budding strategist, time traveler, and ambassador of good taste is here and now.

Designer

Alias: “Happi Gabbi” and “The Gift (of Gab).” Multidiscipline ceramics-maker, graphic designer, story teller, and sometimes dancer (think Step Up/You Got Served). Curious, ever-smiling, lover of philosophy, wabi sabi, and corn dogs.

LAX

mute icon Brendan Sheehan

Technical Director

Oh, what the heck? This frickin’ guy. If you look closely at every picture of every cool thing that happened since 1997, Brendan is likely in the background somewhere. He’s a next level front end developer and dev ops guru. A JavaScript expert. He built and launched the Coachella site himself… TWICE. Lived with Panda Bear in college. Brendan is like Forest Gump but smart.
