Tampa Florida advertising and branding agency

Moving people with
brilliant ideas for
27 years.

Ben Lee and Paola Schifinoʼs passion for creativity and innovation has been helping brands seize on opportunities, gain momentum and grow since 1993.

Our strategy-led approach combined with a neurotic attention to client-service is truly one of a kind. We get to know your brand inside and out, then develop a strategic approach to put compelling creative in front of the right people at the right time. But enough about us. We want to hear about you.

Our Core Values.
