Over the course of the weeks leading up to and following the stay-at-home order issued in response to COVID-19, our Nine Family grew significantly. As our dining room tables turned into part-time desks and Zoom calls replaced our weekly coffee shop strategy meetings, these new team members were quick to adapt and take ownership of their roles in the midst of uncertain times. Because of this, we were unable to snag official headshots of them prior to leaving our downtown office space. The wait is over! We are thrilled to finally introduce them to you.

First up, Colton Crowe.

Colton Crowe is from Centreville, AL and graduated from the University of Montevallo with a Bachelor of Science in Mass Communication with a concentration in multimedia journalism and public relations. He is now close to finishing his Master of Science in Strategic Communication from Troy University.

In his initial months of working with us, Colton has crafted exceptional graphic design and videography pieces to be used across our clients' online platforms. In addition, he works diligently alongside the rest of the digital marketing team to design and manage Facebook and Google ad campaigns. These campaigns are crucial to our clients' success, driving awareness, engagement, conversions, leads, and sales. 

“I am so excited to have the opportunity to work at The Nine where I have already been able to put some of my skills of video editing and graphic design to use and contribute to different projects for the company," Colton said. "I am looking forward to building upon those skills, and I hope to learn even more to add to my current skillset. I am always eager to learn new things, and I believe The Nine is the perfect place for me to do that." 

Colton has a heart for non-profit organizations where most of his past work experience includes public relations and digital marketing roles with organizations such as The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa, High Socks for Hope, Tuscaloosa Children’s Theatre and The Actor’s Charitable Theatre. He is heavily involved in the theatre community where you can find him either performing on stage or working behind the scenes with multiple theatre organizations around Tuscaloosa.

Fun fact: Colton has a twin sister, and their mom is also a twin!

Colton has already proved himself to be an incredible asset to our team. We are so happy to have him as a member of The Nine Family.

"I feel as though I thrive more when working with others as a team versus working independently," Colton said. "The atmosphere and dynamic of The Nine offers just that, which I absolutely love. Even though I’ve only been here for a few months now, I can already tell that I am going to enjoy my time with The Nine, and I can’t wait to see what my future holds with them.”


The Nine specializes in web design, development, and digital marketing. The company’s custom content management system lets customers easily manage their own website. The Nine has had the honor of working with clients like The City of Tuscaloosa, The Chamber of Commerce of West Alabama, The University of Alabama, The Alabama Realtors Association, The Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office, Alabama One Credit Union, Benchmark Rings, Pritchett-Moore Real Estate, and Colonnade Group.
