Impossible dies here.

When your agency is started by an economics wonk from Yale and a former U.S. Army Air Corps Lieutenant – and you set up shop in America's industrial heartland rather than on Madison Avenue – it's pretty clear that you're ready for a fight. Marcus Thomas is an agency that delivers the fearless creative of a boutique shop, the rich experience of a category killer, and the deepest digital team of any agency in our weight class. We create solutions designed for impossible situations. We shape our approaches with deep research. We optimize them with precise analytics and strategic thinking. And we evaluate our work against what really matters: your bottom line.

You grow. We grow. They growl.

Independent ownership. Unencumbered ideas.

Our agency is a closely held business led by a group of partners who believe independence is the foundation of a relationship that isn’t afraid to question everything and take risks. This independence also allows us to organize our agency in a way that aligns with your business, rather than the wishes of a faceless holding company.
