You're not supposed to like the people you work with this much. Blue sky thinkers who are remarkably down to earth. Subject matter experts you'll look forward to hanging with at happy hour. By staying true to our values, we make big ideas happen, without big egos. No wonder the average length of a client's relationship with Swanson Russell is twice the industry standard.



Do what you say. Say what you do. And respect who you're talking to by shooting them straight.

Whether with colleagues, a client or the target audience - don't fake it.

There's always a bigger, better idea out there. Be persistent and focused enough to explore it. If you're not, you're in the wrong place.

We're lucky to be in the business of ideas, and to work with people who value ours. Don't forget it.

Our best ideas happen when we demand the most of each other - and just as much of ourselves.

We are Champions of New Possibilities
