A Tragic History
Tragic Media was started in 2009 by Rich Rudzinski after leaving his job at a large national agency in San Diego. Rich saw the poor structure of traditional agencies, bloated with high paying upper management and supported by low level employees or offshore resources. He saw the way that large agencies treated their clients, promising them the world and then sending the work to the cheapest resource and quickly moving their attention to the next sale. This reckless attitude towards project quality and budget left lots of room for improvement, and Rich knew that he could offer his clients a much better service. Tragic Media has been built from the ground up to be a slim, scalable machine providing cutting-edge digital solutions driven by an experienced and educated team.
As Tragic Media's reputation grew, we decided to bring our expert, cost-effective solutions directly to the end-client. In 2014, Tragic Media launched its own website, and began marketing directly to companies of all sizes looking for innovative, quality solutions to their digital dilemmas.
