Creative Social Engagement

We don't easily fit in a box, but if you're trying to categorize SS+K, we could be described as a marketing + communications agency with a unique perspective on social engagement.

Twenty years ago, SS+K was founded to provide great work for great clients and causes by defying the boundaries of communication at every turn. That philosophy has come to life through dozens of engagement channels over the years, from the world’s first interactive cinema game to a bank blog on responsible finance. From a yellow wristband that became a worldwide phenomenon to a digital grassroots program to eradicate texting while driving.

We create movement and Movements.

We’re helping big iconic brands like VW, Wells Fargo and Travelers use digital and social engagement channels to launch products, initiatives and campaigns. We’ve helped smaller, iconoclastic brands like Honest Tea create noise in crowded spaces and with limited budgets. We’ve helped organizations like Obama for America, the College Board, the AFL-CIO and the Department of Education mobilize challenging audiences and non-profits like the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the World Health Organization elevate global poverty and disease on the international agenda.

These experiences leave us ready to tackle almost any communications challenge with our unique approach to engaging audiences and creating movement.
