Building Good is the lasting trust built between brands and their customers and between the agency and our clients. A belief in the potential of every person, every client and every idea. A commitment to give something back. And a willingness to be measured against the highest standards of excellence.
Our business philosophy is to find like-minded clients who share our belief in the importance of “Building Good” and to work with them to use the power of communications to build and grow their companies and organizations. Our Building Good mantra is on the wall of our offices to remind us daily that we are here for a purpose that is collectively bigger than anyone of us.
Record of Success We were born out of the desire of our founders, Larry Stone and Millie Ward, to be an agency that makes a real difference. Stone’s background was art. Ward’s was copy. So from the beginning, when the agency had four people and one phone (before cell phones, this particular phone had a really long cord so that it could be passed around). making great advertising was familiar territory.
Over the past 30 years, we have distinguished ourselves as a creative agency brand with long-term and respectful partnerships with clients; large and small, local and international. Our list is intentionally diverse and gives us the opportunity to exercise our marketing muscle to help our clients make positive contributions to the economy and the communities they serve.
Along the way, we consistently devote significant portions of our profit and talent to help nonprofits do what they do better. This commitment is an important part of our agency DNA.
What We Do: A good brand is a consistent and welcome presence in the lives of its audiences. This is precisely why we continue to evolve our services so that no matter what the channels are, we have the opportunity to speak for our clients across every one that is relevant to their brand – with a single, compelling voice. Value to our clients is critical so we keep things efficient and cost effective by leaning on our in-house experts and investing in the tools required to tell our brands’ stories any place it makes sense for their targets.
