Supervox began as a brand agency, serving clients ranging from restaurants and retail to technology, manufacturing and professional services. And as our clients grew, we did too, evolving into a full-service creative agency with a penchant for helping ambitious brands thrive in a complex and competitive marketplace.
Drawing on over 20 years of experience as both a designer and art director, Tim brings exceptional breadth and refinement to projects ranging from corporate identity systems, branding, websites and annual reports to print ads, apparel and environmental. He also brings quiet dignity to the creation of off-color billboards, offensive viral campaigns, and innuendo-laden kids’ menus. Tim has a strong background in restaurant marketing and branding, having created compelling, multifaceted identities for Firebirds Wood Fired Grill, Buca di Beppo, Manny’s Steakhouse, Good Earth restaurants, Burger Jones, Pittsburgh Blue Steakhouse, Salut Bar Américain, Libertine Bar & Restaurant, Stella’s Fish Café, Uptown Cafeteria and many others. Recent brand projects outside the restaurant realm include work for AVI Systems, Hallett Financial, Hellmuth & Johnson, Monroe Moxness Berg, NTY Concepts, Skylark Cleaners, Twist Design, UnitedHealth Group and Vaddio. Tim has won multiple design awards and his work has been featured numerous times in national publications including Communication Arts and Print magazine.

From award-winning advertising to hackle-raising fortune cookie messages, Supervox Agency co-founder Tim Alevizos has made his mark across the spectrum of marketing communication. A particular point of pride: seeing his restaurant concepting, branding and creative work come to life in a broad range of Twin Cities establishments including Buca di Beppo, Oceanaire Seafood Room, Chino Latino, Pittsburgh Blue, Stella’s Seafood Cafe, Salut Bar Americain, Burger Jones, and other Parasole Restaurant Holdings concepts. Tim also provides branding and creative services to restaurant and hospitality clients nationwide. His work has been recognized by AdFed, AIGA Minnesota, and the Outdoor Advertising Association of America, and has been featured in numerous design industry publications. Perhaps Tim’s proudest achievement, however, has been seeing his work for Buca di Beppo featured not once, but twice in Tonight Show segments showcasing “inept” advertising. Before entering the creative sector, he worked as an editor at PBS in Washington, DC and studied communications and English at Northwestern University.
After spending his youth driving around in a van full of hair and amps, Matt now rocks the pixels as a web-shredding interactive specialist. He began his current “gig” at the now defunct interactive company, Bitstream Underground, later acquired by Gage Marketing, and went on to co-found Supervox – then called Intercom Agency – in 2007. Matt first earned recognition in the web world for his preternatural proficiency in Flash, but moved on even before the industry did – immersing himself in UX, site structure, and the emerging world of digital strategy. His signal strength: an ability to harness interactive technology to meet users where they live and browse, at their point of need. Today Matt oversees a broad range of interactive projects, ranging from multi-platform web design to highly specialized apps and digital tactics. A Minnesota native, Matt attended Harvard University, where he studied English and surprised himself by excelling in calculus.
For the entirety of his career, Jerry has focused on helping organizations become more successful by protecting their brands and impacting the relationships they hold with their customers, communities, employees and channels of distribution. We’re fortunate to draw on his deep expertise in marketing strategy, brand management, loyalty marketing and public relations. Prior to joining Team Supervox, he served in leadership roles at Carlson Companies, as Senior Director of Client Services; Denali Marketing and Olson + Company, as Senior Director; the University of Minnesota Alumni Association, as VP of Marketing & Communications, and Delta Airlines Sky magazine, where he was Director of Profiles. Making Jerry even more valuable to our clients is his ability to blend the lines between customer journey and life-stage strategy, digital marketing and the technologies that support them.
Having spent more than half his life in the advertising world, Greg’s transformation into a human-marketing hybrid is now complete: He looks like a regular person, but he feeds off brand energy. A graduate of the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management, Greg worked as an account manager at Colle+McVoy and later rose to the position of management supervisor at Gage Marketing, where he oversaw multi-pronged campaigns for clients ranging from UnitedHealth Group to Nestle and U.S. Bank. In 2008 he became Account Director at Supervox, where he works with clients to identify their marketing needs and develop thoughtful, effective solutions. He also makes sure projects are done on time, on budget and without compromise—no small task considering the number of jobs he handles at any given time. Once assured that client satisfaction has been achieved for another day, Greg goes home to polish his beastly 700-page novel – which, if you’re an agent or publisher, you’ll want to get your hands on right away.
Anna has always been creative – no surprise considering her father is a pastry chef and her mother studied fine arts. Growing up in an arts-intensive suburban Chicago school district further nurtured her creative side. Encouraged to cultivate her imagination and provided continuous opportunities to do so, the question for Anna wasn’t whether she would eventually work in a creative field, but which one would she choose.
“As a kid, I wanted to be a fashion designer. As I grew older, I gravitated toward interior design. But once I discovered graphic design, my path forward became clear,” says Anna. “I chose it in part because it bleeds into so many other areas of interest for me, including architecture and interiors.” That journey led her to the University of Minnesota, where she earned her BFA in Graphic Design, and then to Ainsley Shea, a public relations and communications firm where Anna worked as a senior graphic designer before joining Supervox.
Though she’s the newest member of our team, Anna has quickly earned our clients’ confidence with her versatility, finesse, and the strong brand sensibility she brings to projects across the print and digital realms. “I love exploring ways to bring brands to life, and then guiding their growth,” says Anna. “They’re always changing, and design adapts with them.”
Anna has also been an active steward of her own growth by cultivating a range of additional skills in the volunteer realm. During her college years, she provided creative direction for TEDxUMN, and now she serves as Attendee Experience Lead for TEDxMinneapolis. When she’s not wrangling volunteers, scouting sites, and producing events, Anna seeks refuge in another creative outlet: “I’m a pretty avid baker.” And is she any good? “I learned from the best.”
