Motivated in part by having a surname close to "Standard", as in Standard Oil, company founder and creative director Michael Stanard purchased a Bauhaus inspired 1950's vintage gas station located in Woodstock, Illinois. After extensive renovation, the former service station now houses the firm's creative team.

Bucolic Woodstock, Illinois, located 50 miles northwest of the heart of Chicago, is an setting ideal for imaginative thinking, the development of solutions to complex communication problems and creating marketing opportunities for clients.
