Boxing Clever


In case you were wondering, no, we’re not a boxing gym. But what are we? Honestly, we have a hard time telling people. We’re a creative agency. But what do we specialize in? Well, we CAN do a little of everything, and do it well. But to say we are just one thing and not another might mean we never cross paths, and that just feels…wrong. Need interactive marketing? Yep, we do that. Need a sweet promotion to move product? Yeah, we do that, too. Not sure what you need? THAT’S where we really rock. Guess you could say we’re just a group of humans looking to solve problems in a way that’s pretty AND smart.

Brädo Creative Insight

At Brädo Creative Insight, we love solving challenging marketing problems for our clients and their ad agencies. Whether it’s gaining a much deeper understanding of a target audience, determining the most compelling brand positioning, developing new product ideas or evaluating and identifying the most motivating ad campaign or mobile app; we help our clients by providing creative insight and strategic direction.

 

Founded in 1996, Brädo is a St. Louis-based Strategic Marketing Research Agency working exclusively with large global clients, including Anheuser-Busch InBev, Merck, Nestle Purina, The Home Depot, Johnson & Johnson, Frito-Lay, Taco Bell, KFC, Unilever and Crayola. Half of our business comes from international projects that take our people around the world. We have conducted research in over 30 countries on 6 continents.

 

Passion drives everything we do at Brädo. Our people are clever and hardworking; we not only run through walls for our clients, but also for each other. And we don’t forget to have fun along the way. (Just ask about our annual holiday party.) We are made up of singers, CrossFit athletes, volunteers, pop-culture junkies and dog-lovers. Our diverse interests inspire creative thinking. Our goal is simple; to be the best marketing research agency in the world. Really.

 

While our people make Brädo a great place to work, it probably doesn’t hurt that we offer great benefits like health, dental and vision insurance, generous vacation time, a kitchen stocked with an amazing collection of snacks and drinks, annual gym memberships for everyone (to work off the snacks) and a kick-ass office space located downtown, two blocks from Busch Stadium. Oh, and did we mention Cardinals season tickets?

Chicago Portfolio School

Chicago Portfolio School is a 12-15 month school offering a comprehensive portfolio development program for people who want jobs as designers, advertising creatives (copywriters and art directors), web designers, UX designers, graphic designers – everyone who needs a portfolio to get a job – at advertising agencies, interactive agencies and graphic design firms

 

Creative department jobs are intensely competitive and nothing short of an outstanding portfolio will do. Advertising Agencies and design firms are very familiar with portfolio programs like ours, and feel they are much more relevant and valuable than graduate school or art school degrees. Samples of advertising and design are the only way firms judge job seekers. (OK, we exaggerated; it counts for only 99% of the decision.) Our school helps students get a job by helping them put together professional quality samples. In that way, it’s more of an apprenticeship – learning by doing. We give students two of the things they need most: structure and standards.

 

Meaning…degrees and majors don’t matter; portfolios do! And once you finish with a good one, ad and design firms come looking for you.

At Meers, we specialize in marketing for brands that protect the health and financial security of everyday people. Brands in categories like insurance ?and financial services, to put a fine point on it.

 

At Meers we believe our job is to make our clients great. This isn’t always easy because they may not understand what greatness demands, which is oftentimes a little bit of risk or daring. That’s what it takes to reach audiences that may otherwise be unreachable. It takes a special kind of person to deliver that greatness.

Momentum

It’s what a brand does and not what a brand says that matters. The experiences you have help decide what a brand means to you—emotionally, socially and when it’s time to buy. Experience creates real connections that lead to loyalty, advocacy and sales. So Momentum imagines and creates what we call the total brand experience. We connect brands and people in authentic ways that give real value to both. For people, that means memorable, valuable experiences—after which they love the brand for who it is and what it does. For brands, that means loyalty, sales, conversation and more.

 

Momentum creates total brand experiences that connect people and brands– and if you work here, YOU get the opportunity to create any kind of experience imaginable. Seriously. Working here, you’re part of an amazing team – with creatives and strategists, technologists and producers – to create experiences for people that they share and remember because it was designed to make their life more fun, easier or better.

 

THINGS WE STAND BY

 

BE ONE: Support each other, or fall down trying
BE FEARLESS: Grasp that gold ring and go hard after it every time. You’ll stumble sometimes but never regret it.
DO GREAT WORK: Use your grit and create something that makes the whole world take notice.
HAVE FUN: Love what you do and where you are.
GIVE BACK: Be a lover not a hater; give back to the office and the world as much as you give to your work.
GROW: Where we are is never where we should stay. If you’re sitting still, you’re done.

 

We know you’re interested, so stopy by our table and meet us!

New Honor Society

Formerly Rivet

 

Some brands are better at knowing their consumers than knowing themselves.

 

We want to change that.

 

When you find your brand’s calling, and live it into it every day, you attract a following of likeminded people, and the brand becomes the target. It’s not just about promises, persuasions and incentives. It’s about meaningful ties between brands that have a purpose, and the people who want in.

 

We call it Less Sell, More Soul.

Sullivan Higdon & Sink

Sullivan Higdon & Sink helps brands stand out from the flock through integrated brand experiences conceived and executed by collaborative multidisciplined teams. Focus areas include the food value chain, life sciences, finance, aerospace and defense, and marketing to men. WHY DO WE HATE SHEEP, AGAIN? The people of Sullivan Higdon & Sink hate sheep because they remind us of marketing that follows instead of leads. Strategies that should be put out to pasture in today’s marketing multiverse. And docile ideas that inherently blend in. Today, an audience cannot only ignore what a brand has to say but opt out of interacting with it altogether. This is true no matter whom you market to. And so, many brands fade into a bleating flock of competitors, indistinguishable and mostly ignored. Sheep are bad for business. That’s why we hate ‘em. And that’s why SHS has been built from the ground up to think beyond the borders of traditional marketing solutions for ideas that stand out from the flock.

EVERYTHING WE DO IS BUY DESIGN

If you want to make a difference, you have to do things differently. That’s why we don’t think like marketers – rather, we live like designers, putting intent and purpose behind every thought. For the last 100 years that purpose has been to motivate people to buy. And because buying is about believing, we design brand experiences that reshape the ways people behave by giving them more reasons to connect with brands and products than ever before. At TracyLocke, nothing we do is by default. Everything We Do Is Buy Design.

Trozzolo Communications Group

Trozzolo Communications Group is a marketing communications agency providing clients with top-drawer talent and strategic thinking in all marketing disciplines. We’ve been in business since 1989, serving clients across the United States. We’re most proud, however, of the work we do right here in the Midwest – across the states of Missouri and Kansas.

 

Trozzolo is looking for three full-time summer interns (paid, of course) who are ready to dive into the industry. Headfirst. Are you up for the challenge? Our interns do far more than counting media clips and proofreading documents. They meet with clients, help with strategic marketing plans, talk to reporters, give us old pros a few tips on what’s hot in social media, and partake in our company’s annual lake day. So if you are looking to get paid for those creative, strategic and savvy thoughts then we may be the place for you. To find out, apply at interns.trozzolo.com.

Emily Venizelos

72andsunny

 

I am passionate about cultivating an inspirational and authentic culture, all in service to make our company best in class.

 
My passion for people started in high school, when I took a psychology class, and realized that I could actually study the science of what makes people tick. During college, I spent my days as a preschool teacher, shaping the minds of 3-year-olds AND scrubbing finger paint off of my jeans. The most valuable lesson this job taught me was the different ways to motivate and inspire children, at a very basic and straightforward level. Little did I know, that these experiences and background would pave the way to a career working with people.
 
I am a professional motivator, career coach, trusted confidant, creative problem-solver, culture champion, tough-conversation-haver, strategic partner, out-of-the-box thinker, process innovator, creative entrepreneur, and talent manager (just to name a few).
 
Emily is a Sr Talent Manager (Sr HR Business Partner as it is more commonly referred to) and has been working at 72andSunny for 3.5 years.
