A better story. 

It all started in 2013, when two friends Lee and Anne ran into each other after years of searching for something better. They decided to form a brand agency—one that was built on better thinking and better work. The two friends had plenty of good experience. Lee’s journey included working as an architect, designer, art director and illustrator for various design and ad agencies in Southern California and Colorado. Anne founded an award-winning ad agency in Southern California and served as the company’s President and Creative/Strategic Leader. Still something was missing. On that fall day in 2013, over a triple grande nonfat latte and a venti vanilla latte, they resolved to build an agency that would build better brands, better experiences, better businesses. They called it BRIDGE.
