SCOUT / WHAT WE OFFER

on

featured

Creative thinking is our specialty.

In short, we offer ideas. Good ones. Great ones. Even weird ones.

From those we're able to develop entire marketing platforms from which our clients are able to launch complete campaigns.

We'll develop intriguing content for your site, social outlets, storefront, print ads, brochures, videos - you name it.

When it comes to the nuts and bolts of technical development, we work from a progressive perspective, always pressing forward to exploit new and exciting technologies. Lately that means exploiting everything HTML5 and CSS3 have to offer, but we've got our eyes on what's next.

Because of the constant and increasing opportunity to reach consumers through mobile devices, we retain a Responsive approach to development whenever possible. What this means to you is maximum exposure to consumers on small or large form-factor browsing devices with your campaigns.

Welcome to the Ranch!

Scout Idea Ranch is a free-range idea ranch.

Everything we do is driven by an obsession with informed design and doing our part to make the day-to-day a little more interesting.

We work with a host of clients from restaurants to solar energy. When we're not working, we're perusing the latest global trends in all aesthetics from fashion to architecture; from product design to music - we absorb basically anything at all that will enable us to apply our talents and experience to meet your needs.

We’re a full-service design and marketing boutique with a Digital Nucleus. What does that mean? It all starts in the digital world for us. But it doesn't have to end there!

We're problem solvers at heart. Oftentimes we solve problems that weren't asking to be solved.

We're able to execute across diverse media, including digital, print and video. Lately, we've been dabbling in woodwork. So whatever it is that you need to help your brand shine, there's no harm in asking - we probably do it!

A little something about our selfies.

John

Founding Partner
Director of Design & Production

John brings more than 20 years of advertising, marketing and production experience to Scout. In managing teams of various disciplines, he has become versed in both traditional and nontraditional campaign development in the print, digital & broadcast realms.

Over the years he’s filled staff positions with boutique and blue-chip agencies including Campbell Mithun, Ground Zero, and Ogilvy Los Angeles.

Max

Founding Partner
Creative Director & Content Strategist

Max Bean has been working in “online” since before 468x60 and 10K were the standard and an entire website fit on a floppy disk (and, yes, he knows that none are the standard any longer).

He worked as an Associate Creative Director at Ogilvy & Mather after helping to open Organic’s newly formed Los Angeles office, which was embedded with BBDO to service Mitsubishi Cars. He has worked with some of the industry’s trailblazing interactive shops such as Lot 21, Left Field, Thrivepoint & EVB (which he also co-founded). He has also worked with more “traditional” agencies helping them to round out their offerings and integrate marketing efforts. Those agencies include Team One, Saatchi & Saatchi, Anderson & Lembke and AKQA. Max
