Funny seeing you here 😉 Some of our favorite projects have been with you.

We prefer clients who stand behind their company’s mission, who are passionate in their own product and who trust in our creative collaboration. Our favorite people to work with are risk takers, entrepreneurs, great communicators, and people willing to think outside the box. We love great ideas/products and the people/companies that create them.

What have you done in the Past?

We’ve created the #1 US App Store book called “Treehouses of the Pacific Northwest” a full documentary on treehouses. We even helped create the pilot for the hit TV show Treehouse Masters on Discovery Channel and Animal Planet.

We’ve created viral advertisements for products with millions of views and music videos with VEVO with over 60+ million views.

We’re also guilty of creating the ads on YouTube you want to skip. However I must say most of our content does quite well with analytics.

Speaking of YouTube….we’ve helped start channels with 0 subs and in less than a year turned them in 500k+ subscribers.

What do previous clients say about us?

“This is by far the best story-telling that has been done….I know I’ve said this before, but I just want to reiterate that all the hard work your team put into the whole package really shows, and is much appreciated. This is the kind of storytelling piece we’ve dreamed about over the years, but have not able to achieve. Beyond the audience communication piece, this will also help us elevate and position our work more broadly in the industry. Very Grateful.” -Matt Bennett- Microsoft
