Founded in Boston in 1967 by Frank Allison, we have been in continuous operation for more than 55 years. From our humble beginnings as a local advertising agency in a small office in Park Square, close to Boston Common, we grew our business and outgrew our original location. We determined Kenmore Square (home to Fenway Park and the Boston Red Sox) would be the perfect place to foster our growth and expansion, and moved into the building with the iconic Citgo sign on its roof.
In Kenmore Square we dabbled in nearly every creative field: advertising, photography, videography, typesetting, printing, and design. If it existed in the ’70s and ’80s, we offered it as a service. In 1984, thanks to the introduction of the Macintosh, something called “desktop publishing” came into existence, and with it our industry changed overnight. It was sink or swim time for creative agencies. Fortunately for us, we were wearing life jackets.
Fast-forward to 1995: We were an agency specializing in design and desktop publishing. We worked with some of the region’s largest companies and decided we should move our offices closer to the heart of downtown Boston. After more than a year of searching, we found our new home: 123 South Street in Boston’s historic Leather District, just steps away from the Financial District.
With the physical move came a revitalization of the company and our strategic vision. We dedicated ourselves to design, production, and quality control. Over the last 25‑plus years, we have seen our business grow and evolve to where it is today: a full-service creative agency that partners with companies from coast to coast and counts some of the world’s largest organizations as trusted clients.
