As a client of ours says, our shop is small but mighty - we pack a big punch. We have a special culture here, one that doesn't buy into the belief that we have to burn our people out to have a viable business. We work hard to work normal hours and support balance between work and every other facet of life, especially mental health. When we're here, we're present and fully engaged. We love making things for a living, and we’re in it for the long haul. For us at Parisleaf, that means designing an agency culture that is built on love (for each other and the work) and grounded in integrity. We work with clients in various industries from A/E/C firms to startups to cultural institutions, but our deepest expertise is in higher education and non-profits.
