Who We Are

We are a small, Denver-based agency that specializes in helping nonprofits make a bigger impact and increase their fundraising potential by clarifying their messaging, increasing their awareness, and improving the perception of their professionalism and credibility. We do this through high-quality brand strategy, marketing and design.

Jami Fassett
Founder & Chief Brand Strategist

Growing up as a small-town farm girl, Jami has always recognized the importance of hard work, the power of a community, and the value of doing work that helps others. Involvement with nonprofits has been an important part of every step in Jami’s professional career. Prior to starting Up & Up Creative, Jami worked both in-house in the design and marketing department of a major nonprofit as well as at a design and brand strategy agency working with both nonprofit and for-profit clients. She has served on a board, and volunteers her time. Her experience on all sides gives her a unique perspective and helps her to bridge the gap for all Up & Up Creative clients.

Jami has worked with nonprofit organizations such as The YMCAs of Metropolitan Denver, the Colorado Health Foundation, University of Colorado Denver, Girls Inc., Big Brothers Big Sisters, The Children’s Hospital Foundation, and the Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center. She has also worked with for-profit companies such as Dex, Great-West Retirement Services and ViaWest. Jami graduated summa cum laude and has a BA in Graphic Design and Mass Communications.

Jami’s favorite pastimes are watching her young daughters, Zoey and Kenzie, discover the world and playing board games with her husband, Scotty. She also enjoys reading, red wine, snowboarding, jazzercise and testing out new recipes at home.

Anne Tengler
Chief Brand & Marketing Strategist

Anne has been helping great organizations create and implement strategic marketing plans, communications plans, and other vehicles for engaging messaging for more than twenty-five years. With her mix of business and nonprofit experience, Anne brings a diverse skill set to the team.

Anne has particular expertise in nonprofits who serve children, those with disabilities, and in conservation, as well as the Hispanic sector in general. She lives in Louisville, Colorado, where she finds adventure on #morningdogwalks, and in seeing as much of the world as she can.

Lindsey Pettit
Chief Support Officer

Lindsey grew up on Florida’s Space Coast and then attended Flagler College in Saint Augustine where she graduated magna cum laude with degrees in Psychology and Sociology. She then went on to serve as a Team Leader in AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps, which brought her to Denver. While in AmeriCorps, she travelled the Southwest region of the U.S., working in partnership with nonprofits to complete service projects ranging from urban and rural development to education. Upon completing her term of service, she decided to make Colorado her new home. Since then, she has worked primarily in program implementation with education nonprofits both locally and abroad.

Lindsey believes wholeheartedly in the ability of nonprofits to make a positive impact in our communities and is thrilled to be able to support the Up & Up Creative team in serving clients.

In her free time, you can find Lindsey cooking, dancing, traveling, spending time with friends and family, or with her nose in a good book.
