In a word (well, two words), we believe in PEOPLE FIRST.
Whether you call it a philosophy, a positioning, a mission, or a manifesto, it amounts to the same thing: an approach to our work, our people, and our clients that has guided us since the beginning. And always will.
PEOPLE FIRST FOR OUR CLIENTS
We connect brands with people, and people with brands. And in doing so, we help our clients drive business success. We are attracted to brands with a beating heart and a greater purpose in the world — brands comprised of people who truly care about those they serve, and who share our belief in valuing those on staff.
PEOPLE FIRST FOR OUR ASSOCIATES
We have a culture that values and supports our people, their lives and their professional growth. We believe we work best when we work together, leaving titles and disciplines at the door. We work to create truly integrated teams, and empower them to solve our clients’ business challenges in exciting and unprecedented ways.
PEOPLE FIRST FOR OUR WORK
We create ideas and experiences that resonate with people. Things people want to share, talk about, and engage with. We start by seeing a brand’s business challenges through the “People Lens” — a fancy way of saying that we place ourselves in the lives of the people on the other end of an experience or a piece or brand communication. We hold our work to a higher standard than any industry award: the human standard.
PEOPLE FIRST FOR THE FUTURE
As technology, client expectations, business models, and media channels change — focusing on “People First” is what keeps us relevant, successful and ahead of the curve.
Personal Storytelling Demonstrates Effect of Safety on Human Lives in New Honda Brand Campaign
Torrance, Calif, Sept. 20, 2019 – Honda is debuting a brand marketing campaign highlighting the automaker’s deep-rooted and ongoing commitment to safety and the company goal of helping to create a collision-free society. The new “Safety for Everyone” campaign launches today with 60-second and 30-second commercials (https://honda.us/safetyforeveryone) that portray a “what if” vehicle-pedestrian collision scenario. Through emotional storytelling, the spot illustrates what could happen to the lives touched by a pedestrian had a collision not been avoided by Honda’s Collision Mitigating Braking System™, part of the Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assistive technology that is now standard or available on every Honda model in the U.S.
“Safety for Everyone” represents Honda’s unique approach to safety — that everyone sharing the road should be able to safely and confidently enjoy the freedom of mobility. With nearly 40,000 lives being lost each year in the United States due to motor vehicle crashes, Honda is dedicated to not only improving the safety of drivers and occupants of its vehicles, but all road users such as pedestrians, motorcycle riders, cyclists and occupants of other vehicles, with the ultimate goal of eliminating crashes and vehicle-related fatalities completely.
“We wanted our new Honda brand campaign to capture the type of real-life scenario that inspires Honda engineers to pour their passion into creating technologies that work toward our ‘Safety for Everyone’ approach of protecting everyone sharing the road,” said Ed Beadle, senior manager of marketing for Honda. “Crash statistics alone simply can’t tell the story of how a single crash can have a significant and lasting effect on family, friends and loved ones of people involved in a collision.”
Directed by award-winning commercial director Ringan Ledwidge, Honda’s “Safety for Everyone” spot will first air during tonight’s ESPN/ABC Friday night college football matchup between the USC Trojans and Utah Utes. The commercial will run on national cable and network television through November 30 and on sports networks through January 2020 during NFL, NHL and NBA games.The commercial leads a multichannel campaign that will also feature creative across Honda’s website and social media through the fall. In addition, and to further advance its vision for a collision-free society, Honda will roll out a safety-focused social media campaign next month that features actual Honda customers who have benefitted from Honda’s active and passive safety technologies. These inspiring stories are pulled from customers’ social media posts and letters Honda has received from thankful customers.
Honda “Safety for Everyone” Commitment
On the basis of this "Safety for Everyone" concept, Honda is committed to developing innovative safety technologies and equipping them to its automobiles, motorcycles and other powersports products toward Honda's vision for a collision-free mobile society where its customers, and everyone sharing the road, can safely and confidently enjoy the freedom of mobility.
Honda Sensing helps provide greater awareness of conditions around the vehicle, and in some cases can help drivers maintain lane position and, under certain conditions, is capable of slowing or even stopping the vehicle if a potential frontal collision has been detected. Comprising the Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver assistive technologies are: • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Forward Collision Warning and Pedestrian Detection – can apply brake pressure when an unavoidable frontal collision is determined. • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) – can adjust steering and braking if you cross detected lanes without signaling. • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) – can maintain a set following interval behind detected vehicles as well as maintain a set speed. • Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS) – can help bring the vehicle back to the center of a detected lane when unindicated lane drift is determined. • Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) – can notify drivers of posted speed limits with the use of a small camera.
