A vibrant look for a Denver law firm

Most legal marketing is blah; not so, if you're working with us. Custom illustration, 6,000 dominoes and a declassified Russian spy satellite image produced dramatic results!

Meet Us
House Rule #1
Help clients outsmart, not outspend
Our job is to help clients outsmart their competition. If we outsmart them, it’s not necessary to outspend them. No one should get more bang for the buck than our clients.
More House Rules
House Rule #2
Eliminate risk of cost overruns
Creative work is subjective by nature. Keep working at it until the client loves it, and don’t charge for revisions. Help clients stick to their budgets.
More House Rules
House Rule #3
Get people talking about our clients
Create work that gives people something irresistible to talk about. In a good way.
More House Rules
House Rule #4
Aim for elation
Satisfied clients are one thing, but elated clients are our goal. Serve clients tirelessly and unselfishly. Make them want to thank us profusely.
More House Rules
House Rule #5
Be completely transparent
Never hand a client an unpleasant surprise. Send no unexpected bills for stock photos, mileage or "studio materials" (whatever those are). Get written approval from clients on all change orders before doing the work and billing for it. Note that pleasant surprises are still allowed, even encouraged.
More House Rules
House Rule #6
Raise the bar
Create work that dares the competition to keep up. Work that sets the standard. Challenge yourself. Expect more of yourself. Deliver excellence every time.
More House Rules
House Rule #7
Let creative juices flow
Don't be afraid to explore, experiment and do something unprecedented. Most importantly, don't be afraid to fail. Learn from failures and avoid them in the future.
More House Rules
House Rule #8
Tap wisdom and experience of clients
Remember that clients are the most insightful people in the room. Learn from them. Ask a lot of questions. Then, ask more.
More House Rules
House Rule #9
Tackle product, strategy, design – in that order
Don't put the cart before the horse. Take the time to assess the client's product or service and devise a strategy before the creative work gets underway.
More House Rules
House Rule #10
Make it fun
Make working with us seriously fun for our clients. Be the highlight of each client's day... no, week... no, year!

Day 12: Bring on the game! Everyone took home a new Juicebox baseball shirt today. Major kudos to Maggie Bland for designing something fun and stylish! Jonathan took home a Platform 9 3/4 hat for the Harry Potter gift of the day. So ends the 12 days as we spread out to spend time with our families. Many thanks to our great team and the remarkable work they do to make each day at Juicebox fantastic! #12daysofChristmas
Day 11: Festive holiday popcorn Today, everyone received a tin of holiday popcorn. There's a favorite for everyone whether you love chocolate (dark chocolate caramel) or something more traditional (cheddar cheese) or a grab bag (mistletoe mix). Jaclyn took home the special gift of the day with a D&D dice set that glows in the dark (yes, it's a little off the Harry Potter theme but still magical). #12daysofChristmas
Day 10: Kitchen gadgets all around Everyone took home a different kitchen gadget today. Receiving the Harry Potter gift of the day, Alicia took home the Harry Potter version of Trivial Pursuit and plans to challenge everyone over the holidays. Rumour has it family bragging rights are at stake! #12daysofChristmas
Day 9: Muggle magic wands Since muggles don’t have magical skills, they need the closest thing they can get to a magical wand. Today’s gift is a set of precision screwdrivers to open those hard to get to battery compartments and assemble Christmas gifts. Christopher took home the Harry Potter gift of the day. . . a real magic wand of course! #12daysofChristmas
