Character and passion fuel our creative efforts.


At ProFromGo, “WE C.A.R.E.” represents the guiding core values that we share and live by. We work hard together and play to win.

WE

Teamwork


“We” means TEAMWORK.

  • It’s no coincidence that the “We Care” emblem resembles a team logo. We’re on a team with each of our clients, and we’re on a team with each other.
  • Teammates always take care of each other.
  • None of us is as smart as all of us.
C

Creativity


The environment we work in should always be creative, productive, and fun.

  • A mindset of abundance is a must to remain at our full creative potential.
  • Our clients’ needs and goals must be understood empathetically on a deep and interactive level in order for us to innovate the creative solutions they deserve.
A

Accountability


If you aren’t measuring and goal setting, you’ll never know what success feels like.

  • Our work can help our clients accomplish their business goals and objectives and we’re not successful unless our clients are successful.
  • Sunlight is the best disinfectant. We’ll keep the important metrics out in the sunshine where everyone can see them.
R

Respect


Towards each other: We’re all just big kids at heart and must always play nice together.

  • Towards our clients: Entrepreneurs and small business owners are tightly woven into the fabric of our communities. They are the lifeblood of our business. They deserve the utmost respect and we’ll strive to earn their respect in return.
  • Towards the process: We’ll work diligently to understand, accommodate and when appropriate, improve our customers’ processes. We request our customers return the favor.
E

Excellence


Excellence and professionalism are required in all we do.

  • Every task or objective we set out to complete should be approached not with a “how do I get this done?” mindset, but one of “if there were an award for doing this better than it’s ever been done before, how do I win it?”
  • With every task, campaign, or project we either win… or we learn.

We are inspired by challenges and lead from the front.

People are our core focus. We’re all about relationships and becoming long-term partners to our clients.

To his parents dismay, this usually meant taking apart their electronics and appliances with no guarantee they’d be put back together. In school it meant crafting over 25 models of paper airplanes, designed for loops, boomerang flights, and even water bombs. Eventually though, it lent itself to computer. At 16 he built his first computer and 2 years later, his first website. 7 years from that point, Yusef has built over 200 websites and written hundreds of thousands of lines of code. 3 of those years, he’s been working for ProFromGo as the “go-to” for all things technical. He prides himself on crushing deadlines and squashing bugs with vigilance. Though his hobbies include running and frisbee, most of his free time is spent learning new tools and skills, improving his processes, and frequenting Github & Stack Exchange. The same attention to detail that enthused his paper aviation as a child, he now dedicates to keeping our clients websites secure and running smoothly.

So much so that in college, Sarah studied Graphic Design with a special focus on illustration and landed her first job at an ad agency in.. yep.. Downtown Pittsburgh. Just down the street from where her grandfather’s art studio resided. Her experience over the years spans traditional print design likes posters and invitations, digital design for ads and websites, and art direction of video and photo shoots. She believes everyone has a story to tell and wants to tell those stories through her work.
