MUH-TAY-ZIK | HOF-FER is the highly awarded San Francisco-based, full-service advertising agency behind some of the industry’s most talked-about creative work for clients like Audi, Safeway, Method, AAA, and Constellation Brands. When we’re just being natural, we would say we help brands inventively connect with people, no matter what the means: TV, social, identity, strategy, technology, creative, media, digital, or any manner of sustainable brand goodness. First named “Agency to Watch” by Advertising Age, they more recently named us “Agency of the Year” for agencies under 150 people.

Advertising won’t stop changing anytime soon. So from the beginning, we’ve formed ourselves around the above mantra. (P.I.F.K.A. if you’ll indulge us.) It’s given us the foundation we need to help lead the changes clients need in a landscape that is changing faster than any time in history. So, when the world of brands needed more content, we were already running with rapid content creation, leading Advertising Age to state, “The shop is a shining example of how to operate in a continuous content world.” It’s why, with the rise of social, we didn’t set up a silo with second-class creatives. We run it right through the middle of the agency, with top talent. It’s why, for our very first client, we built an online product before we ever did an ad campaign. They just sold for 3x the value of when we launched it. It’s why we can help brands change very quickly as well. Whether it’s the launch of a brand, a refresh, a dramatic pivot, or helping brands succeed in new media, being ambitiously versatile is part of who we are. Oh, and, what’s up with the cockamamie name? History is kinder to agencies whose founders put their names on the door than agencies that go all whackadoodle. But “Matejczyk” and “Hofherr” don’t work so well. So we went phonetic.
