ABOUT 50,000feet
At 50,000feet, your heart beats faster. Your mind is focused. Attention to detail is critical. Communication is clear. You see things differently. You are free and weightless. 50,000feet was founded in 2001 for a simple reason: we saw a better way to do great work. We realize that the broader our perspective becomes, the stronger our ideas grow. As our expertise has expanded into strategy and technology, our creative has soared even higher. Today, we continue to push limits, challenge assumptions and deliver the results our clients expect. Onward and upward. At 50,000feet, our work is a direct result of the strategy that initiates it. Once underlying business objectives are achieved, we provide our clients valuable insight into the path toward higher altitudes while offering inspiration for future creative flight.
