Stave?

Stav. 

The name STAV comes from “Stavinoha,” which was the last name that belonged to our founder’s grandmother. Her art inspired many, and her legacy continues with our mission to bring people together with our work. Our team is made up of good-hearted, passionate creatives who obsess over things like Pantone colors, social media algorithms and the latest design trends.

With backgrounds in advertising, graphic design, publishing, film, coding and art, our team excels at creative storytelling and innovative design that’ll stop you in your tracks.

Bo Duncan

CEO + Creative Director

Bo graduated from NYU, where she learned to be a master critic of creative marketing. That translated well when she began working in publishing, eventually evolving her teams’ skills into an agency model. 

After co-founding her first creative agency in 2014, she saw how powerful great design can be. Her love of design and storytelling grew towards advocacy, and she founded STAV in 2018 with a mission to elevate brands and businesses that bring people together.
