We love the chance to help grow a disruptive startup who just happens to be based right here in Richmond, said Dustin Artz, co-founder/creative director of Familiar Creatures.

Familiar Creatures will be working alongside the Spurrier Group, also based in Richmond, who is handling media planning and buying responsibilities.
