We’re heralding the beginning of fall this September, where the leaves are beautifully russet, our pants get stretchier, and we throw away our scales, because…Thanksgiving. You know what else? It’s that time again for monthly client news. Let’s not waste any time, here are some notable events in the Skunkworks office for September.


We have recently launched an integrated media campaign including print, transit and digital for Port Moody based law firm, BTM Lawyers LLP. The “Don’t be a Dummy” campaign helps highlight the importance of securing a BTM lawyer to assist you through the complex legal process when you’ve been in an on-road accident. The through-the-line campaign is continuing to generate some positive reactions while garnering widespread exposure across the Lower Mainland.
