Year Founded
It all began in early 2014. The C-Suite of the company we were employed with decided that having an internal marketing department out of state wasn’t in their best interest. Enter lay-offs for nearly everyone on the team. Save for two. And if you guessed it was us you would be right! While we missed working with some of our former team members, this was our golden opportunity.

Enter the birth of CutBoard Studio. We had our very first client!

In reality the first few years we spent trying to do every job that came our way; commercials, web videos, product packaging, re-branding, and even a documentary TV series for PBS. Talk about an insatiable hunger for trying new things.

Along the way, we learned what we loved to do and what we were really great at doing; Documentary-style marketing.
We’ve found that documentary-style marketing is not about the short game. It’s a long-term tool that changes the conversation from, “Look at what we do!” to “Here’s why we do things this way.” 

Our work has led us to multiple TELLY® Awards and a NATAS EMMY® nomination. We know we produce great marketing content.
