SPARK

It starts with truth. Today, every little thing a brand does matters. How they look, things they say, and mostly, what they do. There’s no hiding. No faking. Just reality. So why not keep it real with what really matters? We help brands look inward to find their truth, live it with their every move, and share it with employees and fans. The result? Truth creates a burning passion that transforms a brand – both inside and out. Speaking of truth, here are a few we live by.

+ All In: There’s no faking at SPARK. We make a point of getting invested and deeply caring about the work, each other, our clients, and bringing our best to all we do.
+ All Together: SPARK is a place for open minds, doors, and ears. We team-up and collaborate, embrace new ideas and opinions, and invite more people to the table. We’re transparent, direct, and flexible, and we strive to be ego-free conversation-starters.
+ Always Forward: We believe in growth. Personal and business growth. We’re always learning, training, and improving. People here are always looking to shift things into the next gear, and we support one another in every effort to level-up.
