AndSo is a full-service creative agency with a focus on world-class writing and humility. We focus on writing for two reasons: Because no one else does, and because this wildly undervalued skill is everything. No matter what you need to make—from TikTok and Tweets to film and experiences and digital work—writing is required.
Does AndSo have designers and create visual things? Absolutely. But even the purest design work is anchored in writing principles: clarity, craft, and intent.
The founders are us, Jake and Shawn, two writers who wanted to build the kind of company we’d always wanted to work for. Where raw creativity meets brand and building great businesses. Where we could work with the most talented people we could find with none of the middle managers. Where we could help ambitious organizations become memorable with work that works.
We called ourselves AndSo as a reminder. Everything we do should lead to movement, a transition between where you are and where you’re going.
