Brand accessibility helps businesses grow.

This idea is at the core of Tilde Multimedia Firm’s mission and vision. Everything the firm does is for accessibility and visibility, allowing businesses to be seen and to flourish.

Virginia Richardson founded Tilde Multimedia after gaining a conglomeration of advertising, marketing, branding, and production experiences for big names in entertainment. She’s worked for Viacom (including BET Network, VH-1, and MTV), ESPN, Sirius XM Radio, and McClatchy Co.

As the industry changed, Virginia found herself at a crossroads. She’s gone through multiple layoffs and wasn’t sure where she fit anymore. She soon discovered that the experiences she’d gained with the big players are incredibly valuable – but harder to find – for the little guys.

So she moved back home to Fort Wayne and created Tilde Multimedia.

Tilde Multimedia serves clients on a local and national level through multiplatform campaigns.

Tilde Multimedia creates digital campaigns and strategies that help businesses gain a return on investment. The firm works to raise brand awareness and accessibility mainly through national and local, multi-platform campaigns.

Some of the services Virginia offers through Tilde Multimedia include advertising, A/V production, digital analytics, listings, social media, reputation management, SEO, websites, promotion and events, business strategy, and more. 

Tilde Multimedia has worked with national and local clients from Purdue Fort Wayne and Windrose Urban Farm to Sodexo and the Madam Walker Legacy Center.

Virginia is bringing diverse multimedia services back to her hometown.

As the firm grows, Virginia hopes to open more locations throughout the country in growing cities (similar to Fort Wayne, like Phoenix and Birmingham) who have a need for multimedia services.

As Tilde Multimedia grows, Fort Wayne will continue to be the headquarters, bringing a wide array of skillsets in multimedia advertising and marketing to Fort Wayne.
