Steamworks Media might be an unfamiliar name, but our foundations are almost twenty years old. Driven Media was officially launched in the summer of 2007, but it’s roots date back to 1996 when Jim Thomson built his first website. At the same time, in 1998, Jeremiah Spoon began 3D Modeling, video production, and graphic design work for various companies in the Mohawk Valley in Upstate New York. Together, Jim and Jeremiah realized that their strengths could be melded together to form a new company capable of filling the needs that our clients were asking for, and Steamworks Media was born. Of course, Steamworks would need more talent to help fulfill the many requests we receive from our clients, and as a result John McMillan partnered with us to assist in building more advanced websites, run our servers, and provide much needed technical assistance across the board.
Today, Steamworks Media stands ready to assist you with all of your media, web, and graphics needs. Our goal is to help your company succeed – and to look good doing it. Our satisfied clientele consist of businesses and non-profit groups whose services range from manufacturing to healthcare, and from crafting to helping those in need.
And the best part? You can put the piggy bank away – our rates are affordable!
Same People. New Name.
