We are a culture of listeners. It's how we find the place for your brand. The perfect place. We comb the competitive landscape with your strengths, your hopes, your vision as our compass.
We’re not an ad agency or a design firm or an internet company or a marketing consulting group. We’re all of the above. We are a company of independent thinkers. (An innovative communications group). A group of advertising, public relations, interactive and design professionals who came together to create work that challenges common perceptions, outdated assumptions and claustrophobic rules. We are a bunch of optimists who believe we can use our collective brains to create bigger insights and ideas for our clients than any one person can do individually.
For us, it’s all about engaging the consumer—if we can think it up, we can get it done. You see, we think the business world doesn’t need more “yes” men. But we do think it could do with a few more “oooh wait, how about this?” men.

Fred Bruck | Vice President of Accounts
Fred’s passion for the power of a creative idea is not only obvious, but infectious as he leads the charge to find kinetic and unique solutions to business challenges.
Ever since co-founding Harquin, Fred has had one single-minded focus: the desire for doing great work—work that produces results in the marketplace for a select list of clients who want an aggressive marketing partnership that's broader and deeper than the traditional advertising relationship.
Over the span of his career, Fred’s depth of vision and collaborative management style have brought success to brands of all sizes. He helped Macy’s with a national in-store display project. He launched new products for Heineken. And he was the chief architect on a groundbreaking recruitment campaign for the Christian Brothers of North America. A true people person, Fred is the master of building teams and getting the job done.
Today, Fred spends his waking hours nurturing the company's culture, managing and evolving vision, and working on clients’ business from the front lines. He's won recognition in the business community during his career. But his most valued achievement is the trust he has earned from his clients.
