check out our fish tale

Many of us have actually been together for quite some time. Here’s our story.

  • 2003

    Once upon a time, we were a small fish of an agency.

  • 2009

    Then a bigger fish came along and we decided to school up.

  • 2011

    And we looked so good that we all got gobbled up by a giant fish.

  • 2014

    That giant fish was then cut up into bite-sized, tasty morsels.

  • today

    So, we were free to go swim in our own pond again.
    We decided to create Contrast DesignWorks. And it was all good.


here’s where it all goes down

Let’s face it. Traffic is rough. So, we’d rather spend time creating something amazing from an office close by.
