Mitchell Allen Group
(which, by the way, is named after my son)
It all started in the dinette area off the kitchen of an old house in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. I was the lone employee of a one client agency, with the plan to create work that I was proud of and my clients could believe in.
I couldn't have picked a better time. February 1990. The start of a recession. Gloom and doom on Wall Street. Clients were cutting budgets on everything they could justify and on some things they couldn't.
But companies were still looking for new thoughts and new opportunities to save their brands or stand out in competitive markets. Some went in-house. Others demanded more from their agencies. And some companies turned to shops like mine: shops with a strong will for smart strategies and even smarter execution.
And here we are today, still believing in those methods and enjoying the results of them.
