The Genesis of Our Company and Its Approach

From the beginning in 2001, Philosophy Communication believed that their clients deserved better. Better service. Better work. Better results. So we formed a better firm.

Philosophy believes that a meaningful client relationship is the key to delivering exceptional creative work. And, by always keeping the client relationship at the center of everything we do, we’ve been able to build the trust necessary to inspire big ideas that positively change businesses financially, operationally and culturally.

But ideas do not spring into the air fully formed; they are imagined and shaped by our people. We believe it is important to invest in our relationships with our employees to inspire great work. Because great work makes for better lives, hence the basis for the agency was born with our internal mantra: “great work. great lives.”

 

Philosophy’s Raison D’être

  • 1. Clients deserve an agency that cares about them as people and is driven to produce great work because they care.

    2. Agency staff are more creative and productive in a work environment that truly respects the importance of their lives and families.

  • With the idea of a new and better agency in mind, they needed a name with which to summon it into being. Sitting on the floor of the Denver Central Library, surrounded by dusty books, they scoured the options. And there it was, the magic word, “philosophy”—where the exploration of thought and action meet to guide our lives, the perfect word for a new and better approach to marketing.

 

And so Philosophy Communication was born.

To S or Not to S?

Communications: a technical term for all means of distributing messages; e.g. a telephone call or a television ad. Sometimes used interchangeably with the message.

Communication: the living act, in which an idea is shared, received, interpreted, then responded and reacted to. The basis of all human relationships and communities.

In the realm of marketing and public relations, the former amounts to the tactical. The latter, though, taps into a fundamental aspect of life to strategically facilitate the interactions between businesses and their stakeholders (which include customers and clients). We are in the business of the latter, changing the perception of our clients’ organizations and how each intersects with people’s lives.

We are practitioners of an art we’ve named shaping thought: creating dialogues to build meaningful relationships that inspire behaviors.

Over the years, we’ve grown as a team, won awards, and evolved as an agency, but what hasn’t changed is the importance of the relationship: our client-first approach and our devotion to our team. The way we work guarantees big ideas, and when our clients see the big results those ideas generate, all are rewarded.
