We are an advertising agency.
We believe status quo is a waste of money.
We believe calling people “consumers” is the first step in losing their attention.
We believe people make decisions with their heart, not their head; they’re smarter than we give them credit for, they hate being sold to and fall in love with brands that speak to them.
We work hard. We don’t hire assholes.
And if our work doesn’t make you feel something, fire us.
Three Partners, Three Disciplines
Strategy. Creativity. Connections.
After buying out and then blowing up our former agency, we wanted to create a different kind of company. We tossed out the old-school agency “rules” and made a company that is foremost about creativity, all departments working to produce and showcase standout creativity that meaningfully elevates our clients’ brands both competitively and culturally.
Amber Williams is president and partner of Uncommon and drives the business strategy of our work. She’s a seasoned writer and sought after speaker on such industries as food & grocery, travel & transportation and public healthy & safety.
Creative is the largest department at Uncommon. Brantley Payne, executive creative director and partner, leads our nationally recognized team of writers, art directors, designers, producers and editors who’s work is beloved for its unmistakable wit, personality and heart. Brantley is the big-idea guy every brand wants on their side.
Executive Media Director and Partner, Siobhann Mansour, has led media planning and buying for some of the world’s biggest brands in her former life as a Los Angeles media maven. Her team of planners, buyers and digital strategists are masters at connecting consumers to the message irrespective of the medium. With expertise in digital, social and traditional media matched by bulldog negotiating skills, an Uncommon campaign never goes unnoticed.
One of our favorite projects to work on is the Brand Book. More than a brand style guide, the brand book is a client’s strategy, culture and personality playbook. The process is insightful, engaging and customized to each brand. Creating the brand book is the first step we like to take with every new client because it’s also an amazing agency-client relationship builder.
