We’ve connected strangers
across the world to draw each
other, written Coca-Cola’s
most liked FB post, reignited
the lost art of letter writing,
transformed paper currency
into protest, inspired strangers
to share the last photo on
their phone, and redefined
the meaning of marriage, but
the best is yet to come.

We are a creative agency specializing in campaigns that shape culture & earn media.

LAST PHOTO PROJECT

We love working with brands that stand for something & bat down butterflies.

SELECT CLIENTS

Workshop

Facilitating in-person workshops that allow us to unlock our combined potential and understand a given brand’s wants, needs, likes and dislikes.

Creative

Developing unique insights and cultural truths to land at THE BIG IDEA, a media-agnostic, integrated campaign that inspires, delights, and champions human connection.

Production

Bringing a project to life, be it digital, experiential, or live action. We produce in-house as well as partner with bi-coastal 2018 A-List Production Company m ss ng p eces, where Ivan is represented as a director.

Impact

Positioning the campaign to get earned media that audiences seek out, fall in love with, and share across social platforms.

We make work for humans,
not consumers.

People don’t want traditional ads. They want interactive experiences, innovative content, and meaningful connections.

Our work slices through the noise, permeates culture and inspires radical engagement. The result is earned media FTW. We’d rather spend our client’s money making sought-after pieces of lasting cultural phenomena than buying people’s attention with short-lived ephemera.

Our integrated campaigns are media-agnostic—the creative executions are informed by the idea—spanning film, digital, experiential and social. (Oh, and traditional. We do that, too.)

Our work makes headlines, news feeds, & cultural memes.
