Since then, the shop has grown by leaps and bounds. It boasts an impressive client roster that includes iMeet, Google and Blue Shield of California, and had $6 million in revenue in 2011, with $8 million projected in 2012.
It has also done well on 2012's awards circuit, most notably for its brilliant work for Call & Response and the U.S. State Department, which brought together data about modern slavery in the supply chain. The shop tied it into a deeply emotional narrative that asked, "How many slaves work for you?" The project won Gold at the One Show, Art Directors Club, the ANDYs and SXSW, and also earned a Cannes Lion and a nod from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
