In 10 Words of Less, What We Do for Our Clients: We manage the line between brands and people.

3 Characteristics We Look for in Potential Clients:

  1. Partnership
  2. Appreciation of culture.
  3. Desire to do amazing things.

Our Clients Love Us Because: We believe media is anything that connects brands and people and a media agency should be built the way consumers consume media not the way media is purchased. At Crossmedia, there are no hard lines between planning and buying or “digital” and “traditional.” We have a flat, non-siloed structure, which makes us highly agile and able to adapt and react in near real time.

Clients We’ve Helped: AAA, Bojangles’, Cheerwine, Cardinal Health, Dover International Speedway, Indiana University, Longwood Gardens, SEI, Sesame Place, Temple University, UVA

“This business is art and science, sometimes more art than science, but the closer we make sense of the science and get it to work, predictively, then the more freedom we will have to create great art.””
