Aaron was born and raised in the Midwest until his family moved to Belgium. In High School, he traveled through Europe by playing on sports teams and learned HTML by making websites to track stats. After graduating from Evangel with a Computer Science degree he co-founded the company. He is a two-time DWL HR Derby Champion and loves to eat his frites with mayonnaise.

A Missouri native, mother of one, and the people-person of the office. She has a technical design degree and continues her education daily through her love of audiobooks, podcasts, and Spotify inspiration. She enjoys exploring the outdoors, discussing the Enneagram, and checking projects off her task list almost as much as creating new designs for our clients.

Matt was born and raised by a pack of wild wolves in remote Southeast Kansas, where he would remain until his journey Eastward to Springfield. He attended Missouri State University and received a degree in Graphic Design, throwing away his chances to become a professional wiffleball player. He remains conflicted to this day.

The Back Story

Our company was founded in 2003 as Prodigy Pixel. What started out as an idea over lunch breaks, turned side-hustle, finally grew into a full-service design studio in 2006. After a dozen years of growing the team and serving our clients, we were up for a new challenge. In 2019, we relocated, rebranded, and changed our name to Lucent Digital. We’re excited for this next chapter to see what impact we can make for our clients.

“Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much.”

We collaborated with the Marketing and IT teams at AG to create a design system for them to use on multiple sites.
