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.

The skate park in Santa Barbara has to be one of the best-located parks in the country - right on the beach by Stearns Wharf. #seeSB #substancefieldtrip
Walking the farmer's market with the chefs from @winecask - some amazing produce on sale here, and it seems all the chefs in Santa Barbara with freshness and localness are here. #seeSB #substancefieldtrip

Good morning from Santa Barbara! For the next few days, we'll be experiencing what this area has to offer. This mosaic seal is located down by the Santa Barbara Harbor, along a great running/cycling path next to the beach. #seeSB #substancefieldtrip
