A brand is the intangible sum of a product’s attributes: 
its name, packaging and price, its history, reputation 
and the way it’s advertised. A brand is also defined by consumers’ impressions 
of the people who use it, as well as their own experience.

David Ogilvy, founder of Ogilvy & Mather advertising agency, 1955 

Our vision, shared with Ogilvy offices everywhere, is to be the agency most valued by those who most value brands. Central to this vision is the determination to excel at providing Ogilvy 360-degree brand communication solutions. A ‘total’ view of the brand that we achieve by combining communication planning, advertising execution, media planning and buying, public relations and direct marketing with strategic thinking and focused creative solutions.

We start planning a campaign based on your business objectives. It may require market research. Then we formulate the strategy which is the beginning of the plan. The most important decision is how to position your brand.
David Ogilvy said, “Unless your advertising contains a big idea, it will pass like a ship in the night.” The creative phase: It takes a big idea to attract the attention of consumers and get them to buy your brand. That’s what we do best at Ogilvy, giving visual form to ideas and concepts, order and clarity to information.
From media planning and buying, all the way to the production of television commercials, websites, radio spots, jingles, posters, brochures, apps, facebook engagement advertising, point-of-sale, events, sponsorship, we fill every channel with a carefully crafted brand message with high production values.
Whether it’s post-campaign consumer research, tracking studies, focus groups, or pouring over the numbers with you, we leave no stone unturned to learn what we can do to generate more business. And then, together, we go off and do it.
