From conferences to protests to short films, we have documented every step that organizations and people take to create a safer environment for their communities. SMA has worked with countless organizations and brands to help bring their stories to life. Every client has a different theory of change, we takes special care to understand how it all works, and each project is planned with all the needs in mind. From visual strategy to engagement, we consider every aspect of the project before, during, and after production.
