Hello, we are Traction.
And we’re very sorry.*

We’re sorry you’re reading another “about us” page. We’ll spare you the buzzwords and rhetoric about disruptive resonance, digital ecosystems, and our unique proprietary process. We just do good work, and we’re proud of that.

* Actually we’re not sorry at all.

We were made for this.

Big in all the right places

A hand-picked roster of industrial-strength talent, Traction has been independently owned since day one, with no huge conglomo-com in New York or Paris pulling our strings. This nimble autonomy allows us to do the best work for the best people for the best reasons.

We connect all the dots

From strategy to execution we design, write, code, produce, and distribute great, effective work for every screen, every space, every wavelength. We ask the right questions, and we make sure that there’s a through line from the insights to the work to the results.
