Our Story

When MADlab (formerly Langstaff Marketing) started in 1999, there was no such thing as Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube, much less an iPad or iPhone. Pinterest, Instagram and mobile- ready websites were not even on the horizon. No one “Googled”. In fact, most companies didn't even have websites.

For almost 20 years, MADlab has delivered strategies, tactics and high-energy materials to our clients. We have produced hundreds of websites, television commercials, print campaigns and special events. And in more recent years, we have created just as many social media campaigns.

There is no exact formula for the "perfect" marketing campaign. With the components evolving by the hour, marketing campaigns are experiments that must adapt and change to produce results. As strategic mixologists we understand the important mix of a drop of social media for some, and a splash of traditional media for others.

Strap on your goggles, and grab a lab coat...the ride begins now.
