About the Engine
The Engine is a tribe of creators and strategists, builders and collaborators, learners and students. Over the past twelve years, we have built a reputation for collaborating with our clients to push the boundaries and create inspiring work.
We believe the best work comes from an empowered and independent team, free to drive their projects in their own way. We trust each other - knowing each of us is talented, honest, and dedicated. We believe life outside of the studio is a deep source of inspiration, rest, and drive.
We insist on having fun and aspire to create ground-breaking work together. We seek exceptional talent that believes in joining a passionate, egoless team that is building something bigger than themselves.
We’ve created a culture of trust, transparency, and empowerment. We have found creatives who prefer to self-lead and drive projects, thrive here. Curious minds who like to question the status quo, dive beyond the obvious and push themselves forward. Optimistic realists, who face challenges eyes-wide-open, and believe there is a way.
Through different challenges and some creative brainstorming, we began to question if timesheets, scopes of work, oppressive project management, and change orders were actually necessary to be a successful creative agency. Turns out, they aren’t. So we’ve completely rebuilt our model and our clients and team are loving it.
Our clients range from Fortune 500 companies to start-ups, regional players, and non-profits—from wine and food to energy and biotech. While media and industry vary, they share a set of values: a strong drive to break through and create something new, and a desire to work deeper with their agency.
