About Us
“We're not like most creative agencies”
– Most creative agencies 
At Lab 300 we truly believe we differ from the average creative agency in multiple ways. Day-to-day we work in a collective manner to bridge the gaps between high quality digital products, affordability, and doing something good for the world and our community. We work on all digital projects – big or small - regardless of budget, and we donate a juicy portion of our profits-per-project to philanthropic partnerships. 
Why? Because while we recognize that not every business, start-up, organization, or artist, has deep pockets we believe everyone should still have access to high-level design.  Most important, we strongly believe every group has an obligation to be socially responsible.
So, with us you kill two birds with one stone. Your project will get top tier agency treatment and will  make your community, the environment, and the world a better place.
