Crispin Porter & Bogusky isn’t like other ad agencies. They’re notably better.
When the agency introduces a new website to showcase its best thinking and attract the best clients and best talent, it’s worth clicking around to see how the Boulder-powered creatives frame things. Artfully, is the answer. At the same time, there’s a clear emphasis on new business.
One new twist is the Crisp brand extensions. Crisp Jam and Crisp Campus, in particular. Crisp Jam is the agency’s lean and agile play and an interesting way for prospective clients to dip their toe in the Crisp Sea.
“Crisp Jam gets you to big ideas fast. And unlike a boring old pitch, you own all the work.” The agency known for breaking molds is breaking molds. And why not? The path back to the mountaintop is never the same as it ever was.
From the Outside In
What if you don’t work at the agency but want to absorb some of the energy in the room? Here’s a totally non-rhetorical answer for you. Crisp Campus is a coworking space embedded in the agency’s Boulder headquarters.
Crisp Campus brings together a collective of creative thinkers, freelancers and small startups in an environment that encourages collaboration over competition and provides all the necessary tools for radical business growth.
There is also a Crisp Store with Human Lie-Detector t-shirts for $30. No XXL offered.
Transparency Is Part of the Process
In the footer of the site, you can click on Employee Handbook and download a PDF with instructions on how to behave.
I like this instruction:
Why offer the Employee Handbook to the world? To let the world know how it all works. It’s brave and brilliant, just like so many of Crispin’s ideas come to life.
You can be generous with the frameworks when you know that the difference maker is the people who show up and make it all real, day in and day out. How to make great advertising isn’t a secret that needs keeping and Crispin only benefits by sharing their collective mind.
