As we cross the threshold of our 25th year, we embrace our evolution to a digital agency, celebrate our origins as a traditional agency, and remember the consistent theme that has carried us through: ideas. Give us your goals and prepare to be amazed. Our brainstorm sessions are filtered through brilliant cross-generational thinkers, who produce innovative ideas with incredibly fresh perspectives. Although the marketing landscape has changed dramatically in the past 25 years, we are reminded of one simple truth: whatever the medium, you always need words and pictures.
Words and Pictures was founded in 1987 by Madison Avenue
veterans Rhonda Smith and Wesley Shaw. Hundreds of
campaigns, several economic carnival rides, and 25 years
later, we're still here, with more fortitude than ever. Today,
digital technology is a core competency, and our fundamental
values and creative focus remain as strong as ever. Words
and Pictures is comprised of a team of diverse professionals:
marketing and brand strategists, engagement managers,
copywriters, art directors, designers, web developers, media
planners, social media managers and production specialists
who perform small miracles for clients who don't mind
growing their businesses and winning awards. Our strategic
thinking and brand-driven creative are underscored by the
service with which we deliver them.
Words and Pictures is certified as a woman-owned, small business in the state of New Jersey.
Words and Pictures is comprised of a diverse group whose individuality is celebrated and whose team spirit
is nurtured. As a small, woman-owned business, we are blind to gender, race, sexual orientation, and
ethnicity. But we're "eyes wide open" when it comes to finding mind-blowing talent. This is one reason
the agency has grown even during the height of the recession. The other reason? Responsible and effective
planning. Now, isn't that just the kind of management you want working with your marketing budget?
As a civic-minded organization, we, as a company, donate our time and talents to at least two charitable causes per year, and we encourage our employees to donate time to causes of their own. We believe in working hard, rewarding accomplishments, and giving back.
"As a group, we're someone we'd like to hang out with." From jazz cruises to Yankee games to spa days, our group outings are special occasions that tear down the office walls and bring us closer as individuals. Members of our staff have also been known to cavort after hours rock climbing, 3D movie-going or happyhouring.
How do we engage with clients? We think of ourselves as a marketing partner – one who knows when to listen, when to talk, and when to act. This could be the reason we have retained some clients for 24 years and have experienced long tenures with many employees. People we like; long-term relationships we love.
