Square 1 Bank, a division of Pacific Western Bank, is focused on providing full service financial offerings to entrepreneurs. To support their growing company and clients, they partnered with us to create an array of visual content to help tell their story, and clearly show what makes their bank different.

Immediately, what stood out to us about their bank was their commitment to serving entrepreneurs and the diversity in projects, location, sizes and industries of all of their clients. Choosing some of the most compelling stories, we hit the road! We spent three weeks visiting 14 different entrepreneurial companies, from San-Francisco, New York, Boston and in between interviewing each about how Square 1 helps them succeed. From this road trip, we created an array of social and web content including a series of testimonials, photography and a recruitment video.

We loved getting to tell all of the unique stories of both Square 1’s employees and clients and support them both in sharing the benefits of banking with Square 1.

“When our organization was faced with adjusting from our annual in person fundraising luncheon to a virtual event, we had little experience with hiring a company to produce this level of work. The turning point that inspired us to have faith in Amazing Studios was viewing examples of their other work, their clear connection with our mission, their supreme willingness to flex and bend based on multiple people starring in the video, multiple scripts to craft, multiple filming locations and lots of cooks in the SAFEchild kitchen. They also met a very aggressive timeline. I also had faith they would help us utilize a longer shelf life and therefore return on our investment by separating out pieces of the video in a way that they live impactfully on our website and we use all the time when hosting smaller virtual events or training. I used both of our featured story pieces recently - one when I live streaming to an audience and the other for a community stakeholders convening. That’s two intentional uses in just one week - 6 months after our initial virtual event. We also had the ability to share the video in its entirety to those who could not attend the scheduled first viewing for the virtual luncheon. Your responsiveness was always rapid and on point. We likely wore you out, but you never let that on. You outwardly displayed that we were a top priority and quite frankly that’s what our community’s children deserve.”
