The Propel Agency is a creative brand design and management firm in Atlanta.
Who We Are
We show people who you are, what you do and why it matters to them.
We're a creative company focused on connecting brands with their audiences via design, story and innovation. We believe business is people, people crave meaningful interactions, and we exist to propel our clients to greater success.
Fortune 100 multinationals and emerging brands around the world count on our brand strategists, image makers, storytellers and project managers to develop and manage compelling brand identities, systems and experiences.
We founded Propel in 2003 to build dynamic brands for value and growth. We've honed our processes and continuously refine them to ensure our way of working and our work is best for our clients. Because that's what the work is all about: getting the results that matter to you.
Why It Matters
Effective brand building is essential to growth.
In a crowded marketplace, a clear and authentic brand rises above the noise. Every touchpoint between your brand and your audiences is a chance to create positive and consistent impressions that build trust, loyalty and long-term advantage in the marketplace.
What We Do
We create and manage brand value.
Brand Strategy + Brand Design + Brand Management. Our approach to creating big brand value is founded on insights into how people and brands interact.
We provide marketing and branding services — from strategy and planning to creative execution and implementation to brand management. Some of our clients come to us with well-established strategies that we execute. Many of our clients count on us to design the long-term programs and tactical campaigns that move their business forward. When it's all said and done, we are conceptual, process-driven and results-oriented. We make stories, systems and magic.
Atlanta, Georgia is our home. The world is our office.
We're your brand team with a true passion for what we do.
