Marla Rose and John Beske have been powerful vegan advocates for years, and with Vegan Street, they are using their combined creative skills to make outreach materials that get the message to the public in ways that are honest, thought-provoking and effective. The world is lucky to have them working on the side of compassion, justice and environmental sanity.
Marla and John are two of the most creative and brilliant people I know. They can get a vegan message across with wit, humor, and poignancy like no other. I admittedly borrow their content regularly because it's so incredibly impactful.
Vegan Street memes somehow manage to pack vital education, grounded argument refutations, on-point humor, and striking visuals into a little square package of astoundingly effective digital activism. In our visually-stimulated short-attention-span society, memes have all but completely replaced conversation and discourse. Vegan Street's brilliance is using the very language of mindless online chatter to sneak in mindful, thought-provoking content.
Vegan Street has its own unique brand of humor, intelligence and creativity that helps reach new audiences through a variety of online content. I admire their passion and perseverance for delivering work that will wow us upon first glance but also serve as a valuable reference for future use when the right moment presents itself. It is content that is as timely and relevant as it is enduring.
Marla and John of Vegan Street are a powerhouse couple offering one of the most brilliant voices for veganism today. Whenever an issue is presented in the media or in the vegan movement, Marla and John spearhead an elegant, provocative, and polished interpretation. They are my go-to resource for vegan messaging and I am eternally grateful for all of their ingenuous, impeccable, and inspiring work.

Vegan Street memes inform and inspire people to learn and take action through colorful and delightful illustrations on how to go vegan to hard core realist representations of animal suffering. The elegant artistry, simplicity, clarity and incredible comprehensive collection of Vegan Street memes make these a key educational tool in the vegan community across social media and on the streets for our door-to-door leafleting campaign.
Thanks to their humor and engaging graphics, Vegan Street is effective at opening hearts and minds to the plight of farmed animals in a way that doesn't come off as preachy or self-righteous. And that's not always an easy task. I'm grateful for the work they do!
Original and inspired, Vegan Street is an undeniably powerful voice for the animals. I love their creative, smart and sophisticated approach. Their memes are provocative and always on target – I’ve shared them on social media more times than I can remember, and really appreciate this fast, fun and effective resource for animal advocates.
Vegan Street – a voice for the animals and a voice for us. With humor and style, honesty and compassion Marla and John influence and inform the veg, vegan and carnivorous community. They help wake up and change good old Chicago.
Vegan Street offers inspiring and informative content daily – providing the tools the activists and consumers need in order to be better informed and take action for animals. Woodstock Farm Sanctuary has hired them for their writing and creative services and we're very happy clients!
I have worked with Vegan Street and Vegan Street Media for years, creating memes and marketing messages for my company Beanfields Snacks. John and Marla have a deep insight into the minds of the vegan consumer and a gift for framing a message that appeals not just the vegan community, but to everyone. The visual aids and memes they create are awesome, they deliver difficult messages with astonishing creativity. I look forward to creating more inventive marketing tools with Vegan Street Media, that help provoke thought and steer our message of better-for-you vegan snacks for everyone!
