Moguls, Moolah and Madmen

Two of Savannah’s most cutting-edge media agencies are bringing a bit of Silicone Valley’s tech-savvy and New York City’s design know-how to the South. Focus Labs LLC is a design and development agency based in Savannah. And, if both description and name sound vague, that’s intentional. In order to allow growth within their company and to change with the market as the internet itself changes, founders Bill Kenney and Erik Reagan chose a name that could encompass many different things. Tytan, a production company with some big-name clients, is based on sleepy Tybee Island. When Penn State decided to recreate itself after the Sandusky scandal, they chose Tytan to help them do so. When asked why Savannah (or Tybee), both companies had similar answers. In the past, in order to do certain jobs, a company had to be based in a major city to be noticed. But now, in the age of internet and computers, a company can be based somewhere that allows them to breathe. And, if you’re looking for somewhere that you can find family-friendly activities ranging from hiking to kayaking to museum trips, Savannah is the perfect location. Plus, the cultural and artistic community in Savannah and the surrounding areas allows these companies access to all of the artistic and technical resources they could possibly need.
