AMP Agency Seattle started more than 15 years ago in experiential marketing. And we still love creating on-the-ground experiences that connect brands to consumers in authentic and meaningful ways. We understand memorable engagements require differentiation, relevant messaging and social amplification to create buzz before, during and after an event. Our inhouse expertise in Strategy, PR, Social/Influencer Marketing, Branding, Experiential and Event Production making us true end-to-end partners. We’re also proud of our roster of client partners – local, national and international brands that are the envy of any marketing agency.
AMP Seattle is a collection of Thinkers, Makers and Amplifiers. We have a diverse and extremely collaborative group of writers, strategist, event producers, architects, PR & Social mavens, Account Managers and designers working with world-class brands, to create consumer interactions that deeply engage, surprise, delight and drive KPIs.
For fun we gave our people a small survey to see what they are passionate about and we’re happy to report that “Coffee Snob” was NOT the #1 result. This proved what we already knew: AMP Seattle is not what you might expect. We love running marathons which means we train in the rain. We like traveling as much as coming home because we savor new experiences. And we love doing great work with great people! So…if you’re great, let’s meet.
