You want people to engage with your brand.
You want them to trust you.
We are excellent at making that happen.
What We Do
The entire landscape of advertising is changing. It's impossible to process the 5,000 ads the average person is exposed to each day. We are overloaded, and therefore numb. Now, 92% of people say they trust word-of-mouth recommendations over traditional advertisements.
Traditional marketing is rapidly losing ground to influencers and their direct channels.
In a world that trusts recommendations over billboards: social media, influencer marketing and celebrity endorsements reign supreme.
It is our job to help brands connect with their consumer through these channels; to help build an enduring relationship through our ability to curate high quality brand experiences.
We combine ideas, identity, and aspiration into campaigns and live events that elevate brands in our culture. We connect artists to products to experiences to fans. We are Windmark.
