Full-service digital marketing agency BigPxl changed its name from JumpSix Marketing LLC as part of a rebranding effort that went into effect Dec. 11. Sales Director Drew Owen said the move refocuses the agency, which offers search engine optimization, social media, web design and development, videography, photography and inbound marketing services. Rebranding costs for the company, co-owned by Rick Morsovillo and Jeff Sneed, were around $100,000, Owen said, adding expenses included signage, advertising and marketing materials. At 1335 E. Bradford Parkway, the 35-employee firm works out of 7,500 square feet in a building owned by Morsovillo. Morsovillo, Sneed, Landon McCarter and Ryan Jennings first launched the agency in 2014, Owen said, noting Jennings left it in 2018, followed by McCarter in 2019. Owen said Morsovillo and Sneed also co-own TeleChoice, a telemarketing company specializing in the commercial janitorial industry.
