Who We Are 2018-05-04T14:26:27+00:00

Who we are

Let’s start with who we are not.

We are not a graphic design firm, a tactical firm, a firm for the established brands, a vendor, a smoke and mirrors firm, a firm with arrogance, a firm that commits but fails to follow through, a firm that automates its services for a higher return.

Sandbox exists to reveal true greatness

We are a firm for entrepreneurs of startup to mid-size organizations that want to stand out from their competition in authentic and compelling ways. We are a firm that can dig deep with people and organizations that want to create significant impact in their markets and in the world.

We are a firm for those that are on the path of building something great but have not uncovered their true purpose. We are a firm that helps the humble win against the arrogant, the ethical and driven win against the flashy blow-hards.
