Brian Lyman

Hi there! My name is Brian Lyman and I am the founder of Vale Studios, which is really just a stage name for what has been a great career in freelancing. I am an independent designer/marketer/e-commerce consultant with modest development skills and great project management capabilities. Over the years I have alternated between managing a full freelance client roster to working under a dedicated contract and back again. I’m fortunate to have had an incredibly diverse client roster over the years, ranging from one-man garage businesses all the way to multi-million-dollar investment trusts and even an NFL quarterback.

At present, I am working under a dedicated contract with a terrific online retailer (you should check out, but I like to keep this blog up and running as a place to keep my thoughts organized, save notes on troubleshooting experiences, and occasionally share insights on marketing and internet retail in general.

I’m not accepting new clients due to my current dedicated contract, but that doesn’t mean you can’t say hello! Head over to the contact page and drop me a note if you have any questions or a really good joke to share.
