We tell honest, compelling stories
This is THM
Every ad agency today believes they are the best and most creative. It’s a mantra we must have as advertisers to keep us on the cutting edge. The truth is there are a handful of true creatives today, and the others live in a vacuum.
The team at TMH has highly-skilled individuals in tune with past and current advertising and marketing practices. We are strategic thinkers, passionate about our partners, advocates for better marketing tactics, and we believe industry standard is dead and gone. First impressions matter and inspired design, content, and video affect how customers perceive a brand. Our expert insight into consumer behavior gives us the edge on new strategies that strengthen missions and attain goals, plan and simple.
At THM, our mission is to challenge old strategies, disrupt the norm, and change perspectives on traditional practices. Together, we will drive change for your company and your customers.
At THM, our mission is to be the drivers of change, rather than reacting to it. We don’t adopt trends; we create them. We are driven by a desire to provide our clients with innovative ideas and new ways of gaining market identity through direct participation in a world obsessed with consumption of digital media.
We do more than simply connect your brand and service with current and future customers. We connect people with lifelong brand loyalty by helping you design an online business strategy, tell engaging stories, and deliver experiences that inspire action.
At the core of every project, you’ll find a balance between creative ideas and strategic planning.
We host brainstorming sessions, do our research, and turn over every stone to come up with as many fresh ideas as possible for getting a message out there.
And once the idea is real, we look at the psychology behind placing those messages and products in the right place at the right time for the greatest impact.
