What are agencies for? Ideally, you are looking for an outside perspective from experienced marketers, artists and analysts. If that sounds like you, then this is Rupert.

Hi there. We're Rupert.

Rupert is a Seattle advertising agency and creative design firm. Which is SEO talk for marketing strategists and creative thinkers. Case studies and pitches aside, research shows that strong agency-client relationships are built on… (wait for it…) relationships. Which means our mutual success is as much about you as it is about us. But since you already know you, here are some words about us.

We make work that works.

Seems like that ought to be everybody’s goal. Here’s how we do it: On every project we work with our clients to define success and then we look at the brief and ask, “Is this going to work? Is this how people really behave?”

It’s not rocket science. Just common sense, a little bit of creative thinkery and the stark acknowledgement that nobody gives a hoot about your ads. At least not yet.

All of our work centers around these three principles:

  • Listen up – A lot of ads are tone deaf. They say what they want to say and not what the audience needs to hear. We try to listen and understand our audience before we talk to them.
  • Stand out – They can’t hear you if they don’t notice you. Our media strategies and creative work together to get meaningful impressions. Sometimes that means being a bit different.
  • Be heard – Our campaigns are mechanically sound. We aim for clear executions that work with the media to deliver the message crisply. No tiny type on bus ads. Make the logo bigger.

But principles don’t make ads. People do.

It so happens that our people are kind, smart, talented and a pleasure to be around. We all care about the work we do and about each other.

If you want to meet more of Rupert, then get in touch. We’re easy to talk to. Or you can reach out to one of our partners below:
