When you contact Aradise you will usually deal first hand with one of us, Tristen Comegys, Donna Perdue or Tony Comegys. We've evolved into digital nomads and really love being a virtual business. We travel a great deal, but that doesn't stop us from taking care of our clients! We never go where there is no Wifi. Wherever our office is for the day, we ensure the technology is ready for us to work on our projects. We truly enjoy our lifestyle and the flexibility it gives us.
We are a virtual company because it’s cost effective, for us and our clients. Without the burden of traditional business overhead, we can operate at maximum efficiency, which, in turn, stretches your dollars much further. We don’t waste money on buildings and water coolers, so we can keep our rates within reach of “the little guy” and still offer professionalism, high quality and service.
We provide effective, top-notch web, communication and strategic marketing services to non-profits, small businesses and individuals. We believe we're at our best when we're working with entrepreneurs and/or serving our communities by helping great people and organizations thrive. We know that pleasure in the job puts perfection into work, and we really, really love what we do!
We believe in integrity in business relationships. Your website is your online brochure or store, and when we build a website for you, we are responsible for making you look good and function perfectly! When we continue forward with your corporate design projects, we deliver with exceptional continuity and quality. All of that requires integrity and a close business relationship with you. As a small virtual business, we believe it keeps us closer to you and to your business.
First and foremost, Aradise is a marketing company. However, we truly excel at web design. You can absolutely hire web designers for much less, but typically you will just get a web designer, not marketing experts. Today, your website is your most important marketing tool, and yet many organizations simply hire a web designer to create or makeover their site. Having diverse marketing backgrounds means we can share the insight that 30+ years of experience brings to the table.
We will give you personal attention, immediate feedback and helpful suggestions. We are resourceful and will do the research necessary to provide the best solutions for your project, online or in print. Plus, we work hard to deliver exceptional customer service to ensure you are pleased with the entire experience.
Our team of seven is extremely creative and delivers eye-catching, useful marketing solutions that deliver results and a positive return on your investment. With diverse backgrounds in videography, photography, television, radio, advertising, journalism, event coordination, project management, search engine optimization, social media marketing, graphics and web design, Aradise brings many skill sets to your projects.
Tony and Donna also believe in giving back to the community, not because it’s good for business, but because it’s good for the community.
- We've worked extensively with Combat Paper, an organization that encourages military veterans to transform their uniforms into paper upon which they then create art or use it for some other purpose. It's a very cathartic experience for the veterans and since Donna is a Marine Corps veteran herself, it's a very personal project.
- We volunteer for political campaigns whenever we can. We've hosted in-home meetings, handed out brochures, knocked on doors, etc. We believe it is everyone's responsibility to be involved with the most important decisions that affect us all.
- We also work with Operation Sock Monkey, a small non-profit organization that teaches sock monkey workshops, gives sock monkeys to children around the world, and donates collected monies to Clowns Without Borders.
- Recently, we traveled to Kenya to work with Agristewards, a worthwhile organization that teaches struggling farmers how to farm smartly as well as how to cultivate "bad" soil into "good" growing soil. During this 2-week visit, we also took the opportunity to pass out sock monkeys to children in the slums of Nairobi and teach a couple workshops to older girls and boys.
- Because she's a post 9/11 veteran, Donna was awarded a fellowship with The Mission Continues and is currently volunteering with the United Way providing marketing services. She's found it to be rewarding and a great way to network within the local community.
Who said business has to be boring? We believe you can have fun and still reach the stars, so we work every day to mix our passion for our work with our passion for life. Our goal is to work with great people, be proud of what we do and enhance the lives of our clients and colleagues. We pride ourselves on being professional, personable, creative, knowledgeable, innovative, forward-thinking and sustainable in all that we do.
Co-Owner/Creative Director and Website Developer
"I am a strong entrepreneurial spirit, graphic arts enthusiast, proud nerd, music junkie, outdoor aficionado, and a hopeless wanderer. I consider myself a blend of creative designer and a sales-oriented businessman, so I believe it is no accident that I have found my passion in the field of digital media and branding."
With a background in radio, television and photography, as well as having previously owned/operated an interior design company, Tony is a talented and driven entrepreneur. In fact, he is always uncovering and championing ways for Aradise to expand and diversify. Tony is pretty no-nonsense when it comes to taking care of the customer. There's not an email that lands in his inbox that stays there longer than 2 hours!

Small budget? No problem! Part of being creative is finding dollar-stretching alternatives that have the same result as the more expensive options. We love a challenge, so bring us your budget and a project we can get excited about, and we’ll jump in head first. If you’re looking for unbridled creativity, amazing nerdery, strong professionalism and an all-around good-time experience, then we’re you’re team.
We often work with start-ups and non-profiits and sometimes money is a big concern. Our goal is to help you succeed; thus we succeed, both in profits and often in making new business associates and even friends. Keep in mind that Aradise places value on collaboration, outside-the-box thinking, attention to detail and an adamant commitment to our clients’ marketing success.
Who We Serve
Aradise will work with anyone who is excited about marketing, creativity and innovation, especially those who serve and enrich their communities with products, services and talents. We focus on non-profits, small businesses and individual entrepreneurs because we believe they are the foundation to our nation's success and are most often underserved by marketing professionals.
We are creative, fun loving people who support education and arts, shop local businesses and cheer on our non-profit organizations for their community involvement. Of course we need to pay the bills, but this work brings us joy, and we want to offer our skills and expertise to others who share our passion.
