Find your truth. Tell the world.

We uncover the essential truth that drives your brand, and create work that connects to that truth in an emotional way.
It’s way less clinical and more fun than it sounds.

Method

Truth: At the core of every brand is a simple, compelling truth that motivates an audience.

Finding that truth, and the ways to express it is what we do. We have three core values that lead the way.

Curiosity: A sense of childlike wonder drives everything we do. No matter how much we learn, we still want to know more. There is joy in the act of discovery. Great work shares it.

Insight: The truth is a shape with many angles. The closer you are to it, the more difficult it becomes to recognize. Real understanding comes from a willingness to see things from a different perspective.

Tenacity: The process of making things simple is surprisingly complicated. It’s a good thing we love a challenge. For us, the process of getting there is as much a reward as the actual result.

A list of stuff we do

Creative:

We create things that reveal brand truths in entertaining ways. We could wax philosophic about it for hours on end. But that wouldn’t be as fun as just showing you.

Social:

Maintaining a relevant brand voice in a world where the audience doesn’t want to feel sold to isn’t just a challenge, it’s a huge opportunity. We make sure you’re part of the conversation.

Strategy:

Ampersand was founded by strategists. Our process is informed by in-depth research that leads to a focused, integrated messaging strategy, complete with tactics that get measurable results. All we need to get started is a goal.

Media:

The days of just “buying attention” are over. Our integrated media planning and buying service provides results by getting the right message in front of the right audience, regardless of size.

Digital:

There are many avenues to the truth. In the digital world, new ones open up every day. We make sure your site, search strategy, mobile platforms and social media all work together toward the same goal. Some call it “integration,” we call it “common sense.”

Research & Analytics:

Whether we design the research ourselves, or are working with information you already have on hand, we find the patterns and insights that lead to meaningful truths. We don’t just look for answers–we make sure we have the right questions.
