The People of Substance

  1. Stephen Landau Stephen Landau

    Creative Director & Principal

    With over sixteen years of experience concepting digital solutions, Stephen uses the idea of “brand” as a guide for both creative execution and digital implementation. The belief that brand is the way people feel about a company is paramount in the creative process where interactivity, functionality and design all work together to create a positive brand relationship - Interaction is Brand.

  2. Todd Moritz Todd Moritz

    Chief Operating Officer & Principal

    With a formal background in music, television and film production Todd turned his focus to the internet in 1994, heading to San Francisco to produce the original Levi.com. Working for companies like Foote Cone & Belding, Wieden+Kennedy and Organic he’s worked with many clients over the years, many of which you’ve heard of and he’d be more than happy to talk with you about.

Substance History

How did we get here?

Substance was formed in January of 2007 because we wanted to create the company we'd always dreamed of working for: A place filled with smart, creative, business-savvy people who are dedicated to doing great work. The kind of company that would create fantastic work for fantastic clients. Over six years into this journey, our work and our clients are a testament to who we are and what we do.

Coming to @ustravel_association #ESTO2015 in a few weeks? We've created the Substance Field Guide to ESTO Portland 2015, which not only includes great places to eat and drink, but also ideas on getting out and about (gotta burn some calories after those doughnuts and beers). For example, the Eastbank Esplanade is part of a fun 3 mile running loop around the waterfront.
Are you the "overlap"? We're looking for a UX-focused Content Strategist, or possibly a Content-focused UX Designer, to join our team. http://findsubstance.com/jobs/senior-user-experience-content-strategist/
