Halloween 1996. At least that’s what the incorporation papers say. But the idea of Push was probably created sometime before that. You see, Push was founded on the simple premise of giving amazing minds an amazing place to work. That’s an idea that lived long before we opened our doors, and will continue to live on as we continue to provide a place where our best work comes from our best challenges. And our greatest challenges will make us a greater agency.
Originally there were five employees. We have grown in size and stature since then, attracting an eclectic group of talented strategists, art directors, writers, digital geeks, programmers, social media mavens and seasoned advertising folk who found in Push what they were missing elsewhere. And attracting a wide variety of clients who have come to rely on us and our Brand Convergence Model to truly affect change within their customer base.
We are motivated by challenges that drive us to create new solutions. These solutions come from an open exchange of intellectual and creative energy. We are one team. Not departments. Not disciplines. Not silos. We do not live behind titles, or hide behind job descriptions. We all join in, cross boundaries, share insights, get bold, get uncomfortable, lead, take responsibility, give credit and share success. Out of our many mouths, we create one voice that resonates with clarity, conviction and confidence.
We believe that ideas are the DNA of who we are. Ideas can be driven by strategy. Or execution. Or strategy and execution. Sometimes strategy needs to do more of the heavy lifting. Sometimes execution needs to take strategy to another level. And, sometimes, when things are just right, the two strike a perfect balance. Both are important and both have a place at Push.
Push Brand Convergence ModelTM
Brand Convergence Model: The Push Brand Convergence Model looks at brands holistically. It identifies challenges and opportunities that affect and influence consumers.
C=Consumer: We use research to tell us how consumers feel, what they want, where they are and how they communicate.
Exposure: Outward facing messaging across all media-platforms, including social media, TV, radio, print, outdoor, collateral, blogs, banners, links, comments, PR, and any other messaging consumed by customers.
Environment: The physical space where brands live. Retail stores, restaurants, offices, sales centers, events, tradeshow booths or any other place physically defined as a place it wants to engage with its audience.
Experience: The product itself – whether a tangible item such as a running shoe, or something more intangible like insurance.
Expertise: The heart and soul of a brand lives within the people who deliver on the promise. It’s important to make sure it is communicated clearly and concisely to everyone who works for the company.
