Our journey started more than seven years when two strangers became friends through an unexpected collaboration.

Our founders met over a shared interest in the arts and promoting cultural diversity, which is where an opportunity blossomed. Neil and Karston first collaborated to curate an art exhibition, creating the African-American Arts Collective, and presenting the work of 14 young artists at Salt Space in 2010 during Black History month. Karston had relationships, and Neil had access to a gallery and event space. The opening reception was a smashing success. And as they say, the rest is history.

Cultural + Ethnic Diversity.

We believe that for society to thrive it must be culturally and ethnically diverse – a disparity we must all fully embrace. At Spectrum, this belief is our core. By working with our team, companies and agencies are able to gain a broad perspective on their brands that ultimately communicates a more realistic story that accurately reflects our world. This distinction is our greatest value.
