Three friends are working toward their entrepreneurial dreams with their own company, Half Human Studios.
The three young men work in the property management, food-service and printing industries for their day jobs but have been growing their Royal Oak-based creative agency for the last 18 months.
"We decided to start something creative in marketing and use it to help small businesses use marketing tools," says Brandon Nalband, principal of Half Human Studios
That usually means helping small businesses build websites or teaching them how best to utilize social media platforms. Half Human Studios has grown beyond its first few customers and has attracted enough word-of-mouth business to bring on a College of Creative Studies
graphic design graduate to the team. Nalband and his co-founder aspire to turn this into their full-time jobs within the next year.
"There is a very high demand," Nalband says. "There are a lot of new companies that need websites and social media."
