How it All Started

After more than three decades of working together, Kent Johnson and Chris Sekin decided to channel their passion for people, purpose and unexpected ideas into a different kind of branding agency—one that champions the power of Purpose.

Purpose-driven to Make a Positive Change

Defining and acting on a brand’s Purpose is how we lead with heart. It’s why we don’t have clients and vendors; we have partners and friends. Every day, we’re creating meaningful impact with our extremely diverse talent pool—one that’s much more dynamic than your typical agency. One that breaks molds, builds trust and brings new possibilities. Without egos. Without limits. And always with heart.

Where We Shine

We are one company and one family, but our people are also a part of several close-knit teams. We have two creative groups, a design team, a production crew, a mechanical artist duo and three account service teams, but that only scratches the surface of what we’re capable of.
