About Us

We started GBW at the bottom of The Great Recession with the promise to clients that we would deliver the same quality of work as a big agency at a fraction of the cost.  Fast forward more than a decade and we've retained that same model to the keen fiscal and strategic benefit of our clients--some of the biggest Fortune 500 companies in the world.

Rather than focus on pricey self promotion and million dollar office spaces, we've remained streamlined and efficient, with a laser-like focus on our clients.

This means our clients get the attention they want from experienced professionals rather than a rookie who inherits the account from a more senior person. When we need specialized skills (say, high end video), we amass all of the desired components via trusted and verified partners, manage everything from start to finish, and complete the project on time and on budget. Meaning you're paying for what you need, when you need it, not for overheard that covers idle hands.
