We worked with Trim Tab Media to produce an integrated video campaign intended to decrease stigma associated with addiction. All of the staff at Trim Tab were wonderful to work with. They provided timely responses, practiced clear communication, and worked really hard to provide an excellent final product that beautifully demonstrates our message through relatable story-telling and imagery. The team's ability to take feedback openly and apply it to their work is commendable and refreshing. Mendonoma Health Alliance will definitely work with Trim Tab Media on future projects!
