Walk West was created in 2007 as O3 Creative. We started out as a few people building websites and have since merged with Laurie Onorio LLC, a leading Government and Public Affairs firm, and Greenroom Communications, an award winning video production and social media firm. Together, we are a full-service, digital-first agency with a team of more than 30. But that’s just history and to know about us, it’s more important to know who we are. Take a read through what we believe and see how we like to work. If you share similar beliefs, we’d love to partner with you.
We believe before anything, we are humans first. For us, that means following the Golden Rule, standing up for what we believe in, and taking care of each other and the world around us.
A fun Latin phrase we like is tabula rasa, or “blank slate.” That’s how we approach every project. We don’t work from assumptions. Instead, we dive in and learn a business from the inside out and only make recommendations when we’ve done the right research.
Empathy is a misunderstood practice. Understanding the audience’s perspective is how we create great websites, engaging marketing campaigns and lasting relationships with our clients.
Listening these days often takes the form of one person waiting for the other to stop talking. We do our best work by listening. Our clients are the experts on their business, so we take to heart everything they say, and everything their customers say. We place a high value on two-way communication and we ask a lot of questions.
We view our clients as partners and hope the feeling is mutual. We never want to be a vendor.
It’s no fun to read or listen to. Occasionally, the acronyms and programming speak creep into our conversations, but we try our best to always write and talk like real people.
Work isn’t fun. Doing what you love for a living is. We are firmly in the latter category.
There are so many cool people in the world who have something interesting to say. We read, watch, or listen to as many as possible. It helps us stay ahead of a constantly changing world.
We value your time, so we don’t waste it with superfluous meetings, pointless PowerPoints, wordy emails, or run-on sentences.
Or not. We argue about this on a near hourly, daily and weekly basis.
We’re forging a new path where innovation, enthusiasm and experience merge. A new way of doing business. We set out to create a new model for a marketing agency. One built to leverage the power of digital to connect with the audience and sway their opinion, whether it’s a purchase or a vote.
