Culture

Small but Mighty

Our team is small and tight-knit. We hire slowly and with great intention. Everyone has the opportunity to shape agency culture and daily work experience directly.

Work IRL

Our positions are hybrid—we work in person in our studio in Downtown Norfolk, on productions across the country, and remotely. We value good ol' face-to-face interaction and the flexibility our work provides. Office hours are required three days a week, with the option to work remotely for the other two.

Autonomy & Trust

Our team members can produce outstanding results without heavy-handed oversight. We empower every individual with the freedom to take ownership of their responsibilities. We expect team members to be proactive and have initiative.

Environment

We cultivate an atmosphere that's relaxed and allows ideas to develop organically. Our open workspace is designed to encourage cross-team collaboration and the free-flowing exchange of perspectives from diverse voices.

Well-Being

Our team members have rich lives outside the office, and we actively promote work-life balance through flexible schedules, generous paid time off, and opportunities for remote work. Our comprehensive benefits package includes resources to support your physical and mental health.
