Solve, an independent Minneapolis-based branding and advertising agency, was founded in late 2011 by four agency leaders and longtime colleagues. The agency was recognized by Ad Age as a “Small Agency Of The Year," the youngest agency to ever win this award. Solve was also named one of North America’s Top 15 most effective independent agencies by PSFK. And iMedia has named Solve a Digital Small Agency of the Year. The company’s silo-less, client-first model gives marketers a refreshing alternative to traditional agency structures and priorities. Current clients include American Standard, Bentley Motors, Cascadian Farm Organic, True Value Hardware, Porsche, Président Cheese, Founders Brewing Company, Radisson Hotels, Shopko Stores, The V Foundation for Cancer Research, LeMond Cycling, Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank, Circuit Sport and the Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota.
