Contrary to popular perceptions, we are not in the business of advertising.
We are in the business of creating new behaviors. Here’s how it works:
IT STARTS WITH A BELIEF
Every successful brand has a purpose. It’s our job to find it by interrogating the past, understanding the present, and anticipating the future.
We call your brand purpose your Bedrock. Think of the brand as a tree. When the roots are strong — when they touch Bedrock — there’s no reason to fear the winds of change.
THEN MAKE PEOPLE ACT
Yes, our work must get their attention. It must make them think, feel, and emote. Ultimately, it has to make them do something. It has to make them change their behavior. Our work has to open the door to your brand and welcome the world in.
When it’s done right, it becomes a dynamic circle: the work we create builds on the Bedrock, which creates new behavior, which then strengthens the Bedrock. This is how we constantly rejuvenate and reenergize brands over time.
BE BRAVE TOGETHER
Our global CCO likes to say, “There is nothing heroic about failing alone.” We’re committed to creating situations and environments where we can make brave choices — together — so together we can make brave work. (This is more than just a way to work. We think it’s a way to live.) And since we’re governed by our Bedrock, we can rest assured the risks we take are right for the brand.
AND ALWAYS BE NEVER FINISHED
We always ask ourselves what we can do better. We wonder what’s out there and what’s waiting to be discovered. We are constantly restless. We’re always a work in progress and always Never Finished.
