our history

What started in 2008 as a portfolio website for founder Gerard Durling to take on more web-design freelance work, has grown into a group of like-minded creatives producing brands, websites, content, videos and more.

Gerard hired the first employee, multi-talented designer and developer Matt Simoncavage in 2015, and soon after Holly Pilcavage joined the team. With the addition of her entrepreneurial, organizational and people skills and her passion for making a difference, Holly brought her big ideas and set the stage for huge growth.

Fast forward 3 years– Coal has grown from a graphic and web design firm to an award winning marketing agency that boasts: A growing video production team, a roster of intern alumni who are taking on NEPA and beyond by storm and a team of endlessly creative millennial individuals who lead their individual fields in innovation, productivity and efficiency.

As we learn and grow, we will continue to focus on the creation of a company culture that provides a space for our expanding team to do what they do best while creating opportunities for them to be the best at what they do for our clients, and our community.
