Not About Us.

Read most agency websites and around this point they’ll attempt to answer the question ‘what makes us different?’ 

The answer is generally the same: a paragraph, maybe two, containing vague, interchangeable phrases such as ‘creativity as a business tool’, ‘a vision for what is possible’, ‘innovative ways to connect’, ‘we make good coffee’ etc.

Yet if the essence of advertising is differentiation, how come agencies, both good and bad, are incapable of differentiating themselves? And if the quality of an agency is indistinguishable by reading its ‘what makes us different’ section, why have one at all?
