Scott Lawson

Creative Director

Under the leadership of Brian Bennett, a true market strategist, STIR presented head-and-shoulders above the competition. And, their work creative was phenomenal. Their team is great at creating on their own but they’re also great at collaborating with in-house talent. STIR has my highest recommendation.
