This is our idea.
An agency full of stars.
This is our story.
So, one day we noticed that the best and brightest stars in advertising creative and brand strategy were leaving their big shops to strike out on their own.
And we almost thought, “why not join them?”
But instead we thought, “why not join them together?”
And so Virge Branding was born.
We surround you with people who are exactly what you need, who give you exactly what you need, and then go away until you need us again.
No overhead. No bureaucracy. No creative bait-and-switch.
Just a fully connected, fully committed team of stars.
This is what we do best.
Help you name your company.
Figure out what your brand stands for.
Design unforgettable visuals.
Develop killer advertising campaigns.
Innovate interactive applications.
Create irresistible user experiences.
This is our org chart.
This is our promise.
Have you ever been pitched by an agency’s “A” team, only to have all your work done by their “C” team?
We only have an “A” team, and that’s all you’ll ever see.
Meet your team leaders:
Vicki Miller and Keith Cowgill have been a strategic/conceptual/creative team in consumer and B2B marketing for more than 15 years in fields such health-care, technology, cause marketing, and more. Together, they’ve launched or rebranded some of the biggest brands in health care in areas such as neuroscience, diabetes, women’s health, oncology, and diagnostics.
Vicki’s conceptual strategy for Cymbalta (Because depression hurts) helped launch an unknown antidepressant into a crowded field, ultimately becoming one of the best-known brands in neuroscience. Later, she led the rebranding of Cymbalta as a treatment for chronic pain.
Keith’s rebranding of Zyprexa (Why I Fight) was selected as one of the “40 best campaigns of the past four decades” in Medical Marketing & Media magazine. His work has been cited for creative innovation in Pharmaceutical Executive magazine.
Vicki has a post-graduate degree in Art Direction from The Portfolio Center and established a 10-year career in B2B and consumer advertising before venturing into health-care advertising. She’s picked up a slew of creative and Best of Show awards and her work has been featured in Art Direction Magazine.
Keith approaches everything, including strategy, as a creative project. That’s why he is equally known for coming up with compelling concepts as well as surprising brand positions. Keith worked for 10 years in consumer and interactive agencies, often on the leading edge of interactive creative solutions.
A tireless advocate for empowering women in underdeveloped countries, Vicki is co-founder of soHza, an organization that helps support women in need both locally and globally. Keith is a musician/composer who has also written music for advertising and interactive media.
