our culture at SMM

...is decidedly informal. Advertising is a collaborative art, and it thrives in an atmosphere that is open, relaxed and friendly. We don’t allow tiles or layers of management to get in the way of communication, or let egos impede cooperation and stifle good ideas. We expect the same from our clients, because only through openness and honesty can we come to understand their brand’s personality and deliver focused, creative advertising.
