We did the math—2018 was a blast!

SLS’s end of 2018

The numbers don’t lie—we’ve had a great year. With 482 jobs completed, 48 Monday meetings, 620 gallons of water consumed, and dozens of project types, Street Level Studio’s 2018 has been busy and fulfilling. We did take time to enjoy ourselves (see the road trips, 15 birthdays, and 5 food days), but we’re ready to take on what 2019 has in store. We hope that you have a safe and happy holiday, and we’ll see you for new adventures in 2019!

Celebrating Earth Day

Happy Earth Day! Every year on Earth Day we consider how we’re doing on the “going green” scale and take steps to be more eco-friendly. Over the years, we’ve seen the marketing industry as a whole become greener, and this year is no different. When Street Level Studio’s doors opened, a large majority of our clients’ marketing materials were printed.  While there is and always will be a demand for print ads, brochures, and catalogs, increasingly our clients have turned to email and web-based marketing strategies.
