On March 13th, REBUS members had a chance to tour the studio of 90 Degrees West. A welcoming, modern brick building located on the corner of Park and Truman Parkway, the 90°W studio is right on the edge of Lafayette Square, and has recently done business with Bud Light, Scottrade, Sea World, and McDonald’s.

After arriving, attendees had a chance to rub elbows with 90 Degrees West Partner Ellen Legow and several employees while noshing on a few delicious appetizers and beer from local craft producer Square One Brewery, before rotating in groups through the various editing suites involved in the motiongraphics process.  

Graphics and animation, sound design, and color grading breakout sessions gave REBUS members a chance to experience the range of services that 90 Degrees West offers their clients.  Highlighted throughout the tour were a range of TV spots that the 90°W team produced with Cannonball Agency for Ameristar Casinos.

Afterwards, REBUS members got a free T-shirt from 90°W, and many went to enjoy a few of Lafayette Square’s local establishments. If you missed the March event, but would like to take a tour of 90°W, be sure to contact Ellen Legow at

Look for updates on future REBUS events coming soon!

First, the 90°W team has plans to walk attendees through a quick overview of the studio’s culture, philosophy, and workflow, while providing them with refreshments. Next, REBUS members will get an-depth look into how the 90°W creative team recently worked with Cannonball Agency to create Addy Award-winning TV spots for Ameristar Casinos. And lastly, 90°W will show us the entire creative process with breakout groups that will rotate through editorial suites, graphics/animation suites, a sound design suite, and a color grading suite.

It should be a great visit to an exciting studio in the heart of one of St. Louis’ oldest and most fashionable neighborhoods. We look forward to seeing you at 6PM on Tuesday, March 13th at 90 Degrees West. Hope you can make it!

REBUS pulled a double switch last Tuesday night at Busch Stadium when they hosted the REBUS Quadruple Play Client Panel, an event that allowed young advertising professionals a chance to turn the tables by putting some of St. Louis’ biggest brands on the hotseat. While somewhat of a misnomer, as REBUS chaired five panelists instead of the anticipated four, the Quadruple Play offered participants a rare chance to ask the panelists about their days and ways running big brands.
