Hello, we're EVB. We use creativity and our grasp of culture to make brands meaningful, profitable and famous.

Here's the truth: If a brand ignores culture, culture will ignore the brand. As a full-service agency, we partner with brands to help solve their business challenges by boosting their cultural relevancy. We do this with a signature approach that blends emerging technology, behavioral insights, digital trends and a core understanding of the digital native.

Our job goes beyond the typical shout tactics of advertising. We develop press-worthy ideas, meaningful platforms, useful utilities and entertaining social currency that connect on an authentic and intimate level, resulting in natural participation, co-creation, sharing and good ol' fashioned brand love.

We don't help brands join the conversation. We help brands be the conversation.

Copywriter:

You use creativity and your understanding of culture to solve problems. As a copywriter, your focus is on the written word as well as concept. Typically, you work in tandem with an art director partner but will occasionally function alone.

The ACDs and CDs work with the Creative Resource Manager to assign you jobs. Each job (or client) comes with a learning curve. As a Copywriter, it is your job to do the research necessary, including understanding the brand, the challenge, the strategy and the tone.

You know how to handle and implement feedback in a timely manner. You keep it positive, even under stressful situations. Once work is sold, you see it all the way through.
