Strongest Creative Reputation

Since our inception in 1991, we have been one of the most creatively honored agencies in the country year after year. We have been name “Best Mid/Small Size Agency in the U.S. for General Excellence” six times by the 4A’s. This is a record that no agency, large or small, has beaten.

Full Service Agency.

DeVito/Verdi provides all the major functions of a large agency but we are more agile and responsive. Services offered in-house: strategic/brand leadership, creative services, media planning/buying, production broadcast and print, research, public relations, direct marketing, digital services, sales promotion and design/collateral development.

We Search for Truth.

Our philosophy is based on a view that our job is to capture a truth, either about the product or the consumer, that will resonate. What works, and we have proven it time again with all of our clients, is the need to find — and hit — a consumer nerve that resonates as valuable, truthful and unforgettable.
