We’re nearing the end of 2018, wondering how it’s almost 2019 while reflecting on what a great year it’s been for both Trilix and our clients. This year has been filled with growth, new insights, wonderful clients and, of course, fun. We developed new partnerships and grew existing relationships, hired talented staff and won many awards…*que the applause.*

We said hello to our sweet (second) home Alabama.

Early in 2018, we opened our second location in Birmingham, Alabama, to provide clients regional and national service. Change has always been a central theme to Trilix’s story, and opening Trilix Birmingham aligns with our goal of keeping up with the rapidly evolving market and trends while developing our long-term strategy. The opportunity to expand was needed, given that it would be more accessible and convenient for our Alabama-based clients.

“We opened our office in Birmingham for two simple reasons. We saw a great opportunity to expand in a rapidly growing creative community, and it allows us to better serve a client based there.”

Ron Maahs – CEO

We graciously accepted four Addy awards.

“This video represents the collaborative and entrepreneurial spirit of the Iowa City/Coralville region and brings together two truly unique activities that have passionate fans."
