We believe that experiences define your brand and that brand behavior speaks much louder than words. We’ve been busy putting these beliefs to work for over 30 years now. These beliefs are in our DNA. They define our perspective. And they drive our passion for great work.

We live for the big idea.

We are committed to upending the expected. We eschew the norm, straighten the bell curve, and kick sand in the face of the routine, average, or commonplace.

how we work

We create exceptional experiences based on deep strategic insight.
Experiences that engage people.
Stimulate conversation.
Bring dimension to brands.
And drive business forward.

Who we are

Refugees from sameness and bigness. We created award-winning solutions for some of the best agencies in the world, including AKQA, Goodby, Venables Bell & Partners, Digitas, Sterling Brands, AMCI, Jack Morton, and George P. Johnson. We came together here at Kenwood to put all that experience to work creating something truly special. Every day. 

We have traveled many distinct paths, from advertising and show business to corporate events and branding, and come together to create something that defies all of those simplistic labels. We each bring to the table our unique perspectives, hidden talents, and singular aspirations.

Cursed or blessed, we never lose sight of our clients’ objectives. We never forget that results matter. Always.

We are scrappy and innovative, and we are irresistibly drawn to being first and to making our clients heroes. On top of that, we’re just plain fun to hang around with.


Our resumes, our talents, and our work styles may vary wildly. 
But we all share a singular passion for creating memorable experiences.
