Goodby Silverstein & Partners – Master Advertisers
Make stuff people care about: It’s what the award-winning, California-based advertising agency Goodby Silverstein & Partners claims is their ultimate mission.
“It’s what we’ve tried to do for 30 years, and it still motivates us today,” Goodby wrote on their website. “It used to be that the ‘stuff’ we made was ads—TV commercials or outdoor boards or digital banners…Now it’s about creating the right thing. The unexpected thing. The thing that will grab attention, turn on a little light in a person’s head and change behavior.”
Their success in such a goal is evident in their work. Since the agency’s early recognition as Agency of the Year for Adweek and Creativity Magazine, as well as Ad Age in 2006, to the opening of their GSP New York office with 51 Effie awards and 35 happy clients last year, Goodby Silverstein & Partners has consistently worked to create work that is both distinctive and effective.
The Goodby Silverstein & Partners advertising firm is a Graphis Master. They submitted their recent “Flamin’ Hot Cheetos” to the Advertising Annual 2014, as well as “Detroit – SF Bridge” to our Advertising Annual 2013.
