“They worked with me from the beginning of the campaign, at a time when quite frankly when I think many were telling them they shouldn’t. They were a critical part of our success. They are not typical cookie-cutter consultants with a one-size-fits-all plan for every candidate. They knew my values and what I wanted to say, and then helped me communicate it effectively. I think they are one of the best consulting teams in the country.” - Senator Marco Rubio

We have extensive experience producing media and advising clients for President, US Senate, Governor, Congress, all the national Republican committees, leading conservative SuperPacs, and several Fortune 500 companies.

Because we’ve worked at literally every level of a campaign- from yard sign putter upper to speechwriter to fundraiser to campaign manager to strategist- we understand there is no job too small for anyone.  There is no detail too inconsequential. Our philosophy is simple.  Do what it takes to win.

With experience in over thirty states at every level of campaign, we’ve been the campaign pushing for the quick turn TV spot.  And we’ve directed editors cranking through content until the wee hours of the morning.  We know the drill from both sides of the equation.  And through it all we’ve learned that strong, strategic creative is what wins campaigns – delivered fast, tactically, andefficiently- so that every campaign dollar is maximized.

Some times your opponent says it best.

Richard Carmona was gaining ground in Arizona portraying himself as a pragmatic leader, we were called in to expose the truth about his partisan loyalties. Hard to dispute…

Some things are black and white.

Rubio started at 3 percent in the polls. After a long campaign defining the stark differences between our opponent, we beat a popular governor in a three-way general. And we brought home the 2011 pollie for best overall TV campaign.

Some things are high tech.

To show voters in Oregon what Congressman Greg Walden is up to, we employed a little production magic. Using green screen technology we helped Congressman Walden show Oregon how he’s paving the wifi way of the future.
