Armor

If it has a screen, we’re on it.*

We work with businesses of all shapes and sizes to help bring ideas to life across all of the devices in our lives.

A digital agency for everyone

Armor is what you get when you combine the speed and agility of a technology startup with the experience and pedigree of a team that’s been in the digital marketing game since it started. Our business philosophy and driving force is quite simple – we hire good people to do good work for good companies. Today that includes:

Small Businesses & Organizations

To help small businesses, organizations, and non-profits thrive in a world gone digital, we use experimentation over elaborate planning, customer feedback over intuition, and iterative design over "big ideas."

Startups

With early stage startups, we're both the critic and problem solver who will push, prototype, and execute digital experiences that delight and inspire people each and every day.

Advertising Agencies

For ad agencies, we’re a reliable digital team to tap when internal resources are tight (or non-existent), expertise is limited, or when an unbiased perspective is simply needed.

Our Work

The Viaduct Rail Park

ViaductRailPark.com is a project developed in partnership with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society to promote one of Philadelphia’s most anticipated urban development projects. The park, which will ultimately span three miles, will feature unique plant life indigenous to the area, all of which is documented in detail on the site.

In My Kitchen

Sodexo, a culinary services provider that feeds more than 15 million consumers and businesses each day, needed a way to better showcase their culinary expertise. Working alongside Sodexo’s creative agency, we built In My Kitchen, a site that features hundreds of recipes, tips, and ideas from around the globe.

Scott Peters
Founder & CEO

Scott’s been in the digital marketing world for over ten years and has worked at agencies in Philadelphia, New York City, and Washington, D.C. As a client partner, he’s managed brands such as American Express, T-Mobile, Charles Schwab, New Line Cinema, Rémy Martin, The Guggenheim Museum, Sprout, and AstraZeneca.

Outside of Armor, Scott runs OurCocina, a non-profit program that teaches English as a second language (ESL) to Spanish-speaking employees in the restaurant and hospitality industries. He’s also a Leadership Philadelphia alum and a committee member of the Philadelphia Ad Club.

Scott’s days are focused on driving Armor’s growth and service offerings.

Chris Reif
Executive Creative Director

Chris began his career in the late 90’s as a freelance designer and developer during the dot-com boom. After boom became bust, Chris settled down in Philadelphia and honed his creative craft at Brownstein Group and Razorfish.

In 2007, Chris left his Associate Creative Director position at Razorfish to launch Neiman Group’s Philadelphia office in the basement of his South Philly home. Under his watch the office flourished – headcount grew from 2 to 60 and new relationships were formed with the likes of XFINITY, Yuengling, Sunoco, Beats by Dre, Campbell’s, Villanova University, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Ultimately, the office’s award-winning creative and technology output caught the eye of Boston-based Allen & Gerritsen, who acquired Neiman in 2013.

Chris came to Armor to do what he does best – build teams, establish a creative culture, and foster great work.

Dan Hughes
COO

Since the ripe age of fifteen, digital has been at the center of Dan's career. In the mid-90s, he helped launch the web’s first video game publication, Intelligent Gamer. After the site was purchased and absorbed into a print magazine (yeah, the 90s), Dan turned his attention to Apple and the Mac community with Webintosh, one of the trailblazers in the Mac publishing space. (Kind of wild but true – the site was acquired in 2000 and still lives on today under the Mac Observer brand.)

Soon after, the advertising bug bit. Dan was an early member of the team at i-FRONTIER, Philadelphia’s pioneering digital agency, and further honed his craft at Brownstein Group, Digitas Health, and Razorfish. In 2007, he co-founded a&g’s Philadelphia office and helped the outpost grow from two guys in a basement into an industry-leading innovation factory and creative powerhouse.

At Armor, Dan’s role is part operations, finance, and new business.

Jack Hartman
VP, Client Partner

What better way to kickstart your advertising career than by working at one of the most recognizable names in the business – Grey Advertising. Jack spent his twenties in NYC cutting his account and project management teeth on big brands such as 3M, The American Egg Board, TruTV, and the Effie award-winning Frontier Airlines.

Home eventually came calling and Jack returned to Philadelphia to lead the multi-million dollar Sunoco account for a&g. It was there that Jack played an integral role in growing the brand's category-leading digital presence. He also managed all of Sunoco’s strategic marketing initiatives across fuel, retail, and motorsports.

Jack leads Armor’s client relationships and oversees the work we produce for them.

Ryan Johnson
UI Engineer

Ryan’s career began when he was hired as one of the first designers at a&g Philadelphia. His offline and online creative output led to award-winning work for clients such as Sunoco, Comcast, PA Wine & Spirits, and Villanova University.

Always wanting to push his digital knowledge and capabilities further, Ryan evolved his creative talents into all things user interface, including front-end development. After a&g, he put those skills to work at Intuitive Company, working on brands like BBVA, Temple University, and Regions Bank.

And a network of on-demand experts.

Our model is based on a simple premise – we assemble the right development team for the right job. Instead of generalists, we’ve amassed a network of specialists who operate in the worlds they know best. Most of our work is done in PHP (WordPress, Drupal, Craft), C# (Sitecore, DotNetNuke), Objective-C/Swift (iOS), Java (Android), Ruby on Rails, and JavaScript.
