What We Do
Like many great ideas, we are the answer to a problem.
We serve a lot of people in many different ways, but it started with the biggest problems facing new creatives, nonprofits, startups, and small businesses.
High school grads, college grads, or anyone entering the field of advertising and marketing is likely to face a catch 22: needing experience to get a job that pays a living wage, while also needing a job to get that experience.
They may also have to commit to a specialized role within an agency before they have a chance to explore others.
Women and people of color are at an immediate disadvantage when it comes to the advertising and marketing industry, and the same struggles exist for minority small-business owners, entrepreneurs, and nonprofits.
Without the budget for professional branding and digital assets, they must often resort to in-house and low-quality work, making it that much harder to get their message out.
Together, they provide each other’s solution.
