Michelle Cardinal and Tim O’Leary have always challenged conventional wisdom. When they founded the agency in 1998, no one believed direct response and brand advertising should be in the same room—let alone the same agency. Now our clients wouldn’t have it any other way. Achieving both goals is now an imperative, not an option.
What makes us unique is that we can achieve both goals simultaneously. We deliver on brand and sales objectives at the same time with the same work. That need requires continuous innovation and total commitment.
We believe that all brand behaviors are important and the way a brand sells is key to how it is perceived. That’s why we created Transactional Brand Building.

Our entire agency is fully committed to these core values.
We innovate. Participate. We’re not afraid to deviate and we empower others to do the same. They zig? We zag. We have courage. To speak. To act. To try. To be. We’re brave. Because being brave is easy when everyone has your back.
We care about the people we work with and the relationships we build. We’re honest, open and receptive to one another. We have mutual respect, from clients to colleagues to vendors. Then we play hard together. ‘Cause having fun at work isn’t a nice-to-have, it’s a must have. And yes, participation counts.
Commit to Excellence
We do whatever it takes, for however long it takes (even when it’s hard). We deliver above and beyond for clients, for investors and, most importantly, for ourselves. And we deliver when others say it can’t be done. We keep learning. Keep teaching. Keep improving. And we raise the bar higher than the moon.
Have A Winning Spirit
We beat the control. Beat the competition. We push ourselves to be the best. We motivate our troops and move in for the win. Because we know that with great competition comes outstanding performance.
Our team is dedicated to caring for each other and for the community. We give our employees the opportunity to complete individual and team-centric fitness goals and wellness programs, in addition to our complete menu of health insurance benefits. We also care for our community by volunteering together to various organizations each year. Recent volunteer and fundraiser events have included:
Central City Concern's Family Housing Program
West Chester Food Bank
Gaits of Harmony
Oregon Food Bank
St. Anthony Foundation
