Ever eaten saganaki? You know there will be a flame, or in our case… a spark.
The spark happened in 1997 at a restaurant in Chicago’s Greek Town, when George Lowe and Jack Sonta wanted to start a new media company that was fun, exciting and (most importantly) their own. Lowtide Images, Ltd. was hatched, our logo a starfish. By 2000 George and Jack had carried the flame to Wicker Park, where Lowtide became Sparkfactor as we know it today.
