A PARTNER THAT GETS IT.

We are brand ambassadors for the clients we represent, building your reputation and ours along the way – as real partners.

OUR PROMISE.

We are DEVENEY, a research-driven marketing firm that develops strategic action plans for engagement that are fresh, unique, on-message, and most importantly, effective at solving modern brands’ toughest challenges.             

By creating content that intrigues, inspires and motivates – with the right message at the right time to the right people – we do more than move the needle, we make history happen.             

We’re more than an ad agency. More than a PR firm. We’re an engagement agency. 

We build comprehensive campaigns with careful thought to every medium, every word and every touch point from branding and advertising to public relations, crisis and digital.

This is what we do. And we want to do it for you.

our process.

Brand loyalty isn’t a given. It’s earned. We look at your goals and objectives and then create a customized, targeted and measurable strategy for each one, leveraging a blend of the right tactics to maximize your reach.

Immersion and discovery

We get to know your brand, perform research and walk away with key insights that will drive our thinking.

Strategic Planning

Next, we come up with a game plan that is not only strategically sound and grounded in research, but also includes the who, how, when and where needed to achieve your goals the right way.

Implementation

Then, we head into execution, tapping all determined channels for distribution to deliver on what we promise in a way that will get you the results you want.

Evaluation

From start to finish, we examine everything we’ve done, looking at what worked, what didn’t and what should change to make it even better.

And then we do it all again

In order to keep making the work as strong as it can be, we continue this process over and over again. After all, there is no one-size-fits-all solution, but by implementing our approach to success, we create more targeted solutions that do exactly what we say they will – work.

OUR team.

We believe ideas come from everywhere and everyone, believing that it is our individuality that makes us great and our creativity that ties it all together. Not to mention, we're nice.
