We’re virtual. But real.
(Because we like paradoxes.)
You know what happens when you don’t have to invest in walls, roofs, floors or any other limit-imposing aspect of a physical office?
You get to invest instead in creativity: talent and technology that together, kick some serious ad/PR/marketing/communication booty.
Welcome to our ‘virtual’ reality. Come meet the players.
Work smart. Play nice.
Do good and whatnot.

He always strikes the right chord — be it designing a client logo, providing creative input for an innovative campaign or rocking his Gibson Les Paul. Bruce Ruff is an art director’s art director. Here’s his story.
Her breezy demeanor and infectious personality make Nicole Rose Dion an ideal client services manager. She keeps her clients organized, her team on task, and her style — and social media game — are always on point. Here’s Nicole’s story.

For Andy Johnson, the journey is the destination. He has spent decades telling stories through video and animation, creating compelling narratives in digital realms — as well as in real life. Just ask his car, Sally. Seriously, that’s her name. Here’s his story.
Good Deeds so far this year 16
We say “giving back is in our DNA,” but seriously: We swabbed our agency cheek, shipped the sample to 23andMe and found an over-preponderance of the giving gene. (Plus we learned some of us have the asparagus odor detection gene. Good to know.)
