Company Description

Who We Are

We are Mekanism.  

We solve real business problems using a strategic blend of storytelling, high design and/or clever, bust-a-gut humor. It’s basically just advertising.  We do it for brands your Mom’s heard of – Pepsi, Charles Schwab, Method, GE, Virgin Mobile, Amazon, Ralph Lauren, Ben & Jerry’s, Muscle Milk, Nordstrom Rack, Brisk, AMP Energy, Amazon, The North Face, Starbucks, NBCUniversal, and a few others.  

Our innovative approach to get assess in seats and move product from shelves has earned Agency of the Year Awards the past two years, numerous Effies, two Harvard case studies and all sorts of industry hardware. 

We take great pride in making unconventional campaigns for brands in conventional categories.  Our patented blend of storytelling for emerging media takes a small army of Mekanistas to pull off.  What is a Mekanista you ask? Being a Mekanista requires a rare combination of being a strange, wonderful and talented person who enjoys coffee, crying, ping-pong and impromptu rooftop jam and workout sessions.  We are smart, strange, wonderful folks that brave our contentious and often violent brainstorming sessions to make advertising magic.
