Guerilla… what’s all that about?

It’s fair to say that the question we get asked most often is “why Guerilla?” Well, since you ask, the name comes from an obscure quote we found, from a source long since lost in the mists of time, that described Cuban revolutionary guerillas as…

“A small, yet extremely dedicated group of individuals that employs highly creative solutions to overcome more powerful adversaries.”

And we thought, “Yeah, that’s us!”

We work with people we like, on projects that inspire us, and we’re proud of the diverse nature of our clients. But big or small, they have one thing in common… they expect results and a healthy return on their investment.
