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!

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.

House Rule #3
Get people talking about our clients
Create work that gives people something irresistible to talk about. In a good way.

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.

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!

At Juicebox, we've added a few new co-workers since we all work from home while social distancing. Here's what they each had to say about that...
Have you met ClaimBOT? He can help you learn all about things referenced-based pricing. He's knowledgable, friendly and works like a charm. We recently learned a thing or two about that while building an awesome new site for our friends at ClaimDOC. Check out our work 👇 Claim-doc.com
Check out the Hansen Company's slick new site to see some of the incredible projects done by their talented team. We had a blast working on this website with them! Check it out! 👇 hansencompany.com
