The Ashy Agency Announces Expanded Client Roster And New Corporate LookAgency?s client roster grows to 10 specialized design, animation, visual effects and live action studios (March 02, 2006)
The Ashy Agency has announced its expanded 2006 client roster, while concurrently showcasing a new corporate logo and identity branding system for itself.
Launched in 2005 by marketing communications veteran Brett Ashy, the agency quickly made a name for itself as one of the industrys premier resources repping high end broadcast and new media design firms. Boasting a roster since last year that includes the Los Angeles based 5-x-b, Buck, and Engine Room, and the New York based Freestyle Collective, The Ashy Agency has just added new clients Blissium, Helix, and Roger, all based in Los Angeles, and nailgun*, Newspeak and Nth Degree, all based in NYC.
Commenting on the additions to the agencys roster, Ashy says, ?My main goal when creating this agency was to bring about a collection of the strongest design, animation, 3-D, visual effects and live action studios this industry has to offer. Each company Ive chosen to represent is comprised of incredibly talented people, and most importantly, people who are highly skilled at handling the day to day expectations of their clients. In the last ten years of my career, I have come to realize that the best way to treat and keep clients is through honesty and reliability. Ive worked very hard to find studios that share my ideals regarding these attributes. Ive been very lucky in the fact that these same people are some of the most reliable, experienced and successful people working in our business today!
Another of Ashys goals was to create The Ashy Agency as a single resource, and one that would represent exemplary talent. ?The job of finding great talent in broadcast and new media design has always been daunting. Broadcast, cable networks, video game manufacturers and advertising agencies spend a lot of time calling in reels. My goal was to provide our industry with an easier alternative, by collecting and submitting high-end reels of responsible companies. Having spent so much time in this industry, I also listen very keenly to what potential clients are looking for, hear their concerns and note what special capabilities they are seeking. Carefully listening to clients on the first phone call is a key element in matching the right studio to the right client.
Regarding The Ashy Agencys new corporate logo and branding system, Ashy recalled that his agencys initial branding in May 2005 was born out of a race against time. ?When I first launched and branded my company, I had only a month to get both my agency and my clients to the Promax/BDA conference in New York. A very talented designer named Peter Crandall worked with me to develop a logo and identity that could be printed very quickly and be ready for the conference. During this 2006 incarnation of my client roster, I now wanted to take some time and develop a mark that had color and would stand out among other logos. Roger, one of the studios that I represent, came up with the dynamic ?A diamond logo, the design of my website and all other collateral marketing materials. ?
For 2006, Ashy is implementing a marketing blitz for his agency, as a new portfolio, including a ?QuickLook DVD with all of the agencys clients montages on one DVD, along with ten full company DVDs, will hit the desks of approximately 200 broadcast and new media executives within the next two weeks. Ashy commented, ?The portfolios will be delivered in a black box, and are designed to impress the attributes of The Ashy Agency as soon as the recipient opens it up!
