Hank is a creative digital agency and production studio that lives at the intersection of strategic advertising and entertainment, just around the corner from storytelling. And telling the stories that specific cultural segments want to find, is where we shine. We’re creative types who live for strategy. Using both provided and collected data insights, our goal is simple: produce fresh, rebellious and vibrant advertising campaigns that tell a brand’s story to specific audiences across broadcast and digital spaces.
What makes Hank special is our collection of talented artists, thinkers, and top industry production personnel. Working as a collective is important to us. We bring our combined talents and experience to every brainstorm, integrating data insights, strategy, creative, and production.
We keep tabs on your competition (and ours) and constantly source new ideas and inspirations, so that we can approach each new project with a fresh perspective. Each target audience is unique. Every approach to that project should be as well.
Great creative needs great production to reach an audience. We provide both. Our creative team compliments their beautiful minds with hands-on, world-class production experience. We can conceive, direct, design, animate, and edit your stories, in-house, with style and flair.
We understand strategic partnerships. We know our area of expertise and we partner with studios that know theirs. The result is that – no matter what your branding project requires – you can sleep soundly knowing that we’ve handpicked the best people to meet those needs.
It all boils down to this: we make the stories your brand wants to tell and we do it in a way that will make your targeted consumers want to not only listen, but also tweet, like, pin, tumbl, reblog, forward, up-vote, bookmark and share.
We believe in digital media.
We understand traditional media.
We excel at both.
We love what we do and we look forward to working with you.
