WHO WE ARE

A little about us

Hi. I'm Lupe Rodarte, the owner of and your primary contact for Chukson Media, a boutique digital media firm serving clients nation-wide. I'm also a proud, tribally-accepted member of the Tohono O'odham Nation and feel blessed to be in Tucson, AZ, the home of my ancestors.

I cut my teeth in the digital media business 18 years ago in the media capital of the world, New York City, at enterprise companies such as Ziff Davis Media, MTV Networks, and Time Inc. I've worked in nearly every stage of the digital media product pipeline from development, design, strategy, and marketing to sales operations.

Today, I bring hard-earned experience and skills together to help small businesses, artists, and causes identify their audiences, design and build platforms to promote and sell their products, reach their customers through marketing and promotion, and gather and analyze results data to optimize return on investment.


 Lupe RodarteOWNER

Lupe Rodarte serves as my publisher at The New Engagement, the literature and art journal for which I am the editor-in-chief. Not only am I continually dazzled by his technological proficiency and knowledge, but I also find myself frequently marveling at his adeptness at creative design, craftsmanship, and product branding. Lupe is able to conceive of a project, develop it, enhance it, and sell it with a swiftness, precision, and imagination that I have seldom witnessed. He is easy to work with and always comes to meetings prepared, armed with a multitude of strategies and ideas.

Having worked with Lupe for more that a decade, his understanding and experience in a wide-range of skills including technical project management, responsive web design, visual branding, and photography and video, have made him an invaluable resource on a multitude of complex projects involving various departments and implementations.

WORK PROCESS

Every plan is customized to your specific needs, capabilities, budget, organizational size and structure, etc...But at a high-level, the sequence goes something like this.

PASSION & FUN

I've been at this digital media business for a long time, 18 years to be exact. It's the thing that I do best and that I most enjoy. I love the technology and programing, the design and photography, the marketing and reaching people through meaningful and delightful experiences, and the results-oriented nature of the business. More than just creating widgets and billable hours, I want us to partner together to have an illuminating and fun experience with whatever your project, big or small, is.

 

COMPETITIVE PRICES

Unlike most digital media agencies that have a dozen employees or more across specialties and large overhead in terms of equipment, office space, administrative needs, cross-department communications, etc...I perform all of the work myself (save for the few occassions where I need custom illustrations or design) and therefore am able to charge rates that do not need to account for all of the above-mentioned expenses. Take a look at my portfolio of work, I think it speaks for itself.

CUSTOMIZED DESIGNS, FULLY RESPONSIVE

Websites are fully responsive, which means they'll look great on every device. Images are optimized to load quickly while still looking good.
