Our Elevator Pitch

We’re in the business of creating elevator pitches for clients, and as that’s the case, we thought we should create one for ourselves. So here’s Brainwave’s elevator pitch, in a nutshell. And in a short video, too.


Our capabilities are unmatched by any other agency in the Washington, DC Metro area, and rival those on offer in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and other marketing hot spots around the country — and here’s why. We can offer you the very best of an advertising, marketing, digital and social media agency all rolled into one. Click on the image below and take a look at the full extent of our capabilities. You’ll see why we’re more than capable of handling any marketing needs you may have.




When you’re hiring an agency, experience is key — and our collective experience is second to none. Our folks have worked for 15 Fortune 100 companies, 15 of the top 100 global brands and 4 of the top 5 ad agencies in the world — and we have a proven history of delivering results for clients global, national and local, and in every industry sector you can imagine. Take an in-depth look at our experience. We think you’ll be impressed at what you see.


Our people are drawn from two of Washington, DC’s premier agencies and media planning companies – Brainwave and Capital Media. Collectively, our folks know the brand, digital, social and traditional media world inside out — which is why we’re the people to help you take your brand and your business to a whole new level. By way of example, just look at our leadership team. They embody all the talent, experience, philosophy and value that we will dedicate to your business.


At Brainwave, we know that when it comes to any kind of advertising and marketing, it’s all about the results. And we’re proud to say that over the years our folks have delivered great results for clients global, national and local — including Coca-Cola, Cable & Wireless, Reebok, Lockheed Martin, McDonald's and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, among others. We’ve helped clients become brand leaders, outsell the competition, increase their revenues by multi-millions, and achieve 100% success rates with regard to their goals. Click on the thumbnail below and you’ll see just some of our figures. In the era of ROI, our numbers speak for themselves.




We deliver unbeatable value for our clients. Our people have worked for the world’s top agencies, companies and brands, and you’ll benefit from their talent and experience across the board. Our fees however, are more in line with those of a small, boutique local shop. Now, local firms can certainly match our fees, but they really can’t match our experience, and national firms can absolutely match our experience but they simply can’t match our fees. And that means of course that hiring Brainwave should be a no brainer.

Client Testimonials

We know we’d do a great job for any client who hires us. But don’t take our word for it. Just take a look at what our clients have to say. Their experience of Brainwave is the best testament of all.

  • Radio

  • Graphic Design


TV is an essential part of the marketing mix for many clients. And we’re proud to say that over the course of our careers a whole host of global and national clients have entrusted our folks with their TV needs — including Coca-Cola, Reebok, McDonald's, Exxon Mobil, Cable & Wireless, Allstate and Fox. So if you want your brand on TV, we really do get the picture.


Writing and producing good radio campaigns is an art — one that requires the ability to communicate a brand message in a way that engages a listener with just words, sound and music. Over the years, we’ve produced numerous successful radio campaigns for clients as big as McDonald's and as small as The Wolf Trap Foundation. As a result, we can confidently say that when we develop a radio campaign for your brand, your customers will be all ears.


Despite the rise of the Internet, a lot of companies and organizations still value the impact of print and have to ensure that their brand resonates in this medium. And we can certainly help in that regard. In fact, whether it’s print campaigns, billboards, brochures, direct mail or annual reports, you can trust us to make your brand stand out on paper — and in practice.

Graphic Design

Our graphic designers are brand specialists first. And that means when we design something for you, we focus on how to make your brand stand out, not how to make a design stand out. Our teams will therefore draw on all your brand values to create your logo, style guide, stationery kit, trade show booth and anything else you need on the design front. By way of example, take a look at some of the logos we've created over the years. They're illustrative of our approach and our grand design for your brand.
