We are audience-obsessed, outcomes focused & constantly creating new ways of thinking for our clients. We are constantly collaborating, building & igniting lasting relationships with brands.

We also create brand experiences that marry a brand’s physical and digital worlds to enhance consumer engagement. Our clients include: the Celtics, Comcast XFINITY, Sunoco, Yuengling, Blue Cross Blue Shield, City Year, Shure, Beats By Dr. Dre, Campbell Soup Company, Caron, iRobot, Dietz & Watson, General Electric, Bright Horizons, First Citizen’s Bank, DST Systems, Staples and Troegs. We’ve been honored with some pretty cool brass (insert Humble Brag), from Ad Age’s Best Place to Work to the Shorty Awards. From Jay Chiat to the One Show to the Project Isaac Awards, an award that celebrates how marketing innovation can help brands create new and powerful ways to engage with consumers. It's also been rewarding to receive props from the likes of Fast Company and PSFK, recognizing A&G for marketing innovation. And receiving the ultimate compliment from MediaPost, who proclaimed after seeing our Project Isaac Award-winning Pic Tap Toe Campaign: "Publicis and Omnicom Could Learn A Thing or Two from Allen & Gerritsen." For an agency defined by its fierce independence, it doesn't get much better than that.
