REDEFINING THE AD AGENCY

LET’S FACE IT

The “agency” model is broken. Traditional agencies have traded the big ideas for data they do not understand.  Digital agencies became so popular, so fast, they they have “factorized” and “homogenized”, trading ingenuity for rinse and repeat process.

We have an idea. Do it right, for every client, every time. Isn’t that crazy?!?

WHAT WE DO

DI focuses on major market shifts and taps into talent around the world to forward our clients’ thirst for innovation and help teams embrace strategies that form game-changing moves.

Strategy. On. Point.

Strategy is set by the A team, the disruptors, the hype-men that debut your business to the world. As opposed to an agency or in-house team, the DI incubator has one goal – rocket your brand and cause demand for the product/service. You work with us, and we work with the best talent available to meet the strategy. Never saddled with an over-worked team, this different agency approach allows the client and the agency the freedom of choice.

All is fair in love and advertising.

Those who understand the shrinking attention in many industries understand that the innovators will be the lasting winners in the most competitive marketplace since the industrial revolution. Innovators will claim their territory by going where the competition won’t. Let’s find your competition and eat their lunch.

ENGINEERED TO WIN.

Our impact case studies range from +45% to +25,000% ROI.  We are surgical and cunning in what we do for our clients.  You’ve heard of marketing unicorns.  We rather fancy ourselves marketing lions.  Because Unicorns don’t exist, and we all know what lions can do.  It’s familiar.  It’s winning.  And, we will do it for you.

LED BY WOMEN WHO RUN THINGS.
JENNIFER BARBEE

Radical Strategy is at the core of JB’s near 30 year success in advertising. A slave to the boutique and unique approach to clientele, Jennifer criticizes the “factorization” of agencies in modern day. Building to scale does not mean losing the unique maneuvers to each client. Barbee boasts several awards over her career and clients tap into her shockingly accurate advertising prognostications and unique strategy.

JB’s charge as CEO is to create a meaningful voice for the company through thought leadership, speaking and industry relationships.  Her main goal is steer clients and industry voices to the future of marketing, attract top-tier talent and never stop innovating.
