what is walrus?
Walrus is an independent advertising agency that has helped grow some of the world’s biggest and most innovative brands. Our approach is simple: we want our clients to be noticed and positively remembered. It’s not easy. Only 4% of ads are positively remembered; everything else is either forgotten or disliked. BUT for brands who manage to make their ads enjoyable, there are major advantages. They can spend less on media. People will seek them out. People will share their ads. And most importantly, people will buy more of what they’re selling.
HOW TO USE US
1. Brand Strategy
Brands are ubiquitous- everyone today either is one or has one. So how do you stand out? How do you get seen and purchased in such a crowded landscape? It all starts with a powerful truth. A truth connected to the customer, the company, and the culture. Importantly, this “truth” needs to be creatively actionable, meaning it can be expressed in a way that captures the attention and imagination of prospective customers.
2. Identity systems, design, packaging
We aim to build beautiful, concept driven design systems that are actually usable. Beautiful because if it’s not aesthetically pleasing the brand will suffer. Concept-driven because good design is more than decorative, it’s an expression of an idea. And usable because we know better than anybody that for an identity to last it has to exist within in a range of environments alongside any number of disparate elements.
3. Launches, stunts, projects
For brands looking to make some noise, we bring a jolt of creativity. We help them to stand out and be seen. We’ve helped big guys like Amazon and General Mills launch new products, and we’ve worked with hundreds of smaller brands to provide the creative spark they needed to jump-start sales and get people talking.
4. Long term partnerships
We help our clients unify their voice across the entire marketing spectrum so that it’s all complementary. To your customers EVERYTHING is brand messaging whether it’s a T.V. commercial or a search ad. We make it easy to tie your media and messaging together and make them sing.
