Ogilvy has been creating impact for brands through iconic, culture-changing, value-driving ideas since the company was founded by David Ogilvy 75 years ago. It builds on that rich legacy through Borderless Creativity – innovating at the intersections of its advertising, public relations, relationship design, consulting, and health capabilities with experts collaborating seamlessly across over 120 offices in nearly 90 countries. 

Our Capabilities

In 1948, David Ogilvy founded an advertising agency. We continue that legacy today as the world around us rapidly changes. The last decade has seen massive shifts in consumer behavior and preference. Amidst that, modern brands and businesses have to do more than simply conjure an image. They must make an impact. Brands today have a unique opportunity to deliver on that promise—one that lives through modern marketing at the intersection of creativity and effectiveness. Our experts are focused on their pursuit of delivering brand impact for our clients throughout the entire creative process, from strategy to execution.

  • Cultural Discovery

    A brand doesn’t exist in a vacuum. The people that buy into your brand are part of cultures and subcultures that reflect their tastes and habits. We explore the tensions, trends and insights that form today's cultural fabric and identify ways to effectively weave your brand or business into it.

  • Brand Strategy

    Every brand must have a solid foundation on which everything stands. Our experts discover, define, and develop a point of view for the brand that is purposeful in spirit and impactful in presence.

  • Brand Experience

    A brand isn’t something that a person interacts with, it’s something they experience. It’s our job to ensure that those connections are emotional, creating long-lasting loyalty and affinity. We design the brand behaviors and symbols used to unify and signify your brand, creating a distinctive and impactful presence in the market.

  • Comms Strategy

    A brand’s voice is crucial, and so is how and when a brand avails itself to people. We plan and design communications initiatives that grow brand equity, boost sales and ultimately support growth across time horizons.

  • Impactful Advertising

    More is expected of the modern brand than to merely exist as the public face of a business. The successful brand of today upholds values that align with its key audiences. We create ideas for our clients’ brands and businesses that win people's attention, create affinity at scale and drive action at the last mile, fueling business and societal growth.

  • AdTech & Data

    Implementing the latest and buzziest technology to simply check a box is a fast-track to disaster and irrelevance. It’s about knowing what’s right for each individual brand and for the business as a whole. We audit, develop, and deploy the right Ad-Tech Stack solutions for your brand and business.

  • Dynamic Content & Context

    The modern brand needs to produce a steady stream of content that is relevant to people in moments big and small, broad and personal. We create and deploy content that is creative in nature and fit for all channels, purposefully personalized, and efficiently produced.

Who We Are

Ogilvy was founded in 1948 as one office. Today, we operate as a creative network in 132 locations across 83 countries. In the course of this growth, the world has become effectively unrecognizable from what it once was.

Ogilvy has been there every step of the way, shepherding the world’s most successful brands through the uncertainty and helping them adapt and stay relevant for the long-term.

We have succeeded because, despite the massive shifts that have occurred over the years, we have always operated in the way David Ogilvy envisioned. He created a corporate culture that deeply respected and cared about its people and its clients. We honor his legacy by operating with that same commitment.

Diversity and Inclusion

At Ogilvy, our people are at the heart of what we do: a creative agency that sparks game-changing ideas across culture and business through collaboration, integrity, and a celebration of self-expression.
 
We believe in building powerful teams with purpose. This means hiring and nurturing talent across all races, ethnicities, religions, abilities, sexual orientation, and gender identities – and we relentlessly curate transformative initiatives that make our commitment to fairness, and equity a reality. 

Our ultimate mission is to leave a positive impact on the world, creating a better future for all, while supporting and uplifting the global communities we serve.  This is central to our mantra of Borderless Creativity.

Grow With Us

Ogilvy’s mission is to inspire people and brands to make an impact. We believe the best way to do that is by fostering a community of inclusion made up of people from diverse backgrounds, where all contributions are valued, and where every employee has the chance to become their best creative and professional self.

Because our greatest asset is, has always been, and always will be our people, Ogilvy strives to be a people-first company. We are laser focused on providing best-in-class learning and development as well as career growth opportunities for all staff. We are deeply invested in and committed to developing our talent and fostering an environment of continuous growth.

Talent, I believe,
is most likely
to be found among nonconformists,
rebels, and dissenters.
