Our mission, "to be the most valued, by those who most value brands" is a testament to out belief that every brand encounter is an opportunity to either build or diminish the brand relationship.
This emphasis on brands is not new to Ogilvy. David Ogilvy said in 1955, "Every advertisement is part of the long-term investment in the personality of the brand."
While our fundamental belief in brands hasn't changed, our approach continues to evolve. We have codified this point of view in our practice of 360° Brand Stewardship.
First, we identify and express the essence of a brand; then we ensure that essence is reflected at every consumer touch point - on-line, off-line, at home, at work, and at play. We build brands across borders and across disciplines, everywhere aiming to find out clients' most valuable customers and to keep them for life.
