SS+K began as an agency with both political chops and creative muscle, founded in 1993 by three former political consultants and a famous copywriter. No other agency teamed copywriters with pollsters and strategists on each account, but here, battle-tested political operatives sat next to designers, planners, social and digital strategists and creatives from New York’s most progressive agencies. This unexpected mix of talents and experience allows us to create unorthodox, highly effective marketing strategies and differentiating ideas for brands, companies and causes including JW Marriott, Starbucks, Jackson Hewitt, E*Trade, FreshDirect, Smile Train, HBO, The New Yorker and Wells Fargo, among others.
But above and beyond all that, we exist to lead brands through moments of change. It’s what we’re built to do. Our mission and passion has always been to figure out smart, creative, engaging ways to influence beliefs and behavior, online and off. We pride ourselves on a few key aspects that enable us to be a different kind of ad agency, and a trusted marketing and advertising partner.
