Who We Were
Whether it was creating a killer brand, designing & developing a snazzy custom website, or deftly carrying out a six-figure product launch, our clients were able to kick back knowing our team would pour heart and soul into their business as if it were our own.
Solamar was founded in 2006 by Chelsea Berler as a creative solution for business owners who wanted marketing, branding and design help without the overhead of “in-house” staff. Starting out as a completely virtual company, Solamar grew rapidly over the next few years until at our peak we were able to provide the expertise of design, marketing, copywriting and tech professionals from all over the United States to work on your projects.
At Solamar, we believe in working with good people, and that means our clients and our team. We have pulled together a pool of talented, passionate and hardworking folks from across the nation, so that your brands get handled by creative and capable minds. Meet them now!
The values that we live and breathe as an organization.
Solamar founder Chelsea Berler wore a lot of hats. She was a business owner, consultant, speaker and author of three books. But she was so much more than that — a fierce friend, champion of the underdog (and of dogs in general), compassionate leader and all-around wonderful human being. Her greatest superpower was the ability to turn any situation, no matter how dire, into a positive one.
Even as she battled the breast cancer that would eventually claim her too-young life, she found ways to turn her misfortune into better lives for others. She founded the Foye Belle Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to bringing comfort to chemotherapy patients, because she wanted to help the people she saw suffering around her. In her waning months, she wrote her third book The Yellow House on the Left, so that she could leave the lessons she had learned about loving and letting go with those of us who remain tethered to this plane of existence.
Those of us who carried Solamar on in her memory will forever be indebted to her playful and loving spirit, and hope that we bring the same uplifting energy to our work that she did every day of her life.
A Message From Sam
Hey y’all, Solamar CEO Sam George here. When Chelsea asked me to take take the reigns of her beloved company from her as she transitioned into her final days, she made sure to tell me that if the time ever came to move on from Solamar, that I should absolutely do that, without any regret or worry. We had a blast around here keeping her fire burning, and we achieved a lot of good, but the day has finally arrived where I’m ready to move on to new challenges, learn fun new tech and build beautiful things that wouldn’t be achievable here.
These days, I’m doing that at Kinetic Communications, a website and web-based application development company here in Birmingham, AL, where I’ve joined a team of talented and passionate folks who’ve worked on (and are working on) some really exciting projects that I’m proud to be a part of. If you still need me, or would like to work with the Kinetic team on a web project, please don’t hesitate to reach out via the form below (or at my Solamar email address, if you already have it). Until then, as Chelsea would have said, big love!
