Reflecting on 2018

2018 has been such an amazing year for Skirt. From homerun placements for our clients, to a website refresh for our own brand and a series of outdoor summer events that were met with nothing but sunshine, we’ve had some major wins at the agency this year. Did we mention we started a new talent management division as well? Not sure how 2019 can top this year, but we’re looking forward to seeing what’s to come. Check out the Skirt girls’ highlights from 2018:
