what is ravel?

The word ravel means to untie and tie up. That’s what we do: diagnose issues standing in the way of business growth.

Ravel: a contronym, meaning to unravel knots or tangles, and neatly tie back up.


RAVEL is the current generation of what started in 2005 as a remote brand and marketing agency.

Our client results come from our ability to apply critical thinking and creative strategy to your brand.

We don’t staff administrative positions or hire mid-level people. Operating remotely keeps our costs low, and we only partner with those with a proven record of results!

Hi! I’m Wendy Van Ryn…


I won’t give you the cliche how-much-I-love-coffee statement, but here is a bit of my story:

I love pizza.

No really, I do.  🙂

I’ve worked with companies in a range of industries, and of all sizes: small, medium, sole proprietors, partner-run, and an international publicly-traded company.

My experience gives me an edge in understanding diverse business needs, and providing tailored solutions for each client.

Prior to the first generation of RAVEL, I worked in a fast-paced advertising agency, managing projects and communication between account executives, creative staff, and the production department.

My expertise is looking at the big picture of where a business wants to go… and helping them identify the steps to get there.

My tactical advantage is having worked in every major role of brand strategy, marketing, and advertising…
