Philosophy & Competitive Advantages

While other agencies scramble to reverse engineer themselves for the age of collaboration, AFG& was born with collaboration at its core. we started life as a small, street-smart collective called Avrett Free Ginsberg, which became an icon of the original New York creative revolution by realizing that the more voices we could include in this thing, the louder we could shout.

Today, AFG& is an unlimited partnership between our people, our clients, and our media and production partners. While the rest of the industry plays catch-up, we're leaping forward with technologies and partnerships that every day move all of us faster to smarter and better solutions. Collaboration isn't just a promise on a PowerPoint slide here. It's real here. It works here. Welcome to AFG&. 

Network Description

AFG& is the global agency for the 21st century clients who need to serve the world largest and fastest growing economies, but without the bulk and wastage that most ad agency networks are plagued by.We offer a meta agency, custom built teams built from world class talent wherever you need, sometimes with full time AFG& staff, sometimes with talent from our IPG family and sometimes we need to draw on the best specialists in the world who work as independant contractors.
