Joey Hodges’ Demonstrate has been making strides since its launch, and their recent updates are no exception. Most notably, the San Francisco-based agency (with a satellite office in NYC) announced they acquired DDW (formerly known as Deutsch Design Works). The acquisition brings Demonstrate over 27 years of innovative brand story architecture and design chops, fresh insights, bold ideas and creativity across its community of thinkers, brand storytellers and designers. Not to mention that with the acquisition comes relationships with marquee brands including Amazon, Annie's Homegrown, AB InBev, Campbells, Energizer, House Foods, Nestlé, Sprint, Starbucks, The Clorox Company, think! and Unilever. Demonstrate is now positioned as a full-spectrum end-to-end agency, which is fitting, since Hodges’ team prides themselves on breaking established industry rules and developing new strategies to tell brand stories in interesting, unconventional ways.
