Initiative is different to other media agencies. We are not trapped by a legacy structure primarily centered on paid advertising.
Instead, we are liberated by a new world structure designed to deliver highly differentiated and highly effective communications strategies for our clients.
We’re not the biggest agency in town. So rather than outsize our competitors we must outsmart them. That’s why we’ve built the strongest strategic capability of any agency in the market.
Core to this strategic capability is an obsession with culture and how brands can pivot from brand advertising (which is forgettable) to cultural branding (which is highly memorable).
Our new world model is comprised of five central craft centers Client Advice and Management, Strategy, Communications Design and Partnerships, and Analytics.
