Small Agency of the Year, 11-75 Employees, Silver: Imprint Projects
Imprint Projects calls itself a "post-advertising creative agency" that focuses its work for brands on helping people and their communities.
Perhaps not surprisingly, the shop says fewer than 15 percent of new hires come from traditional ad backgrounds.
When Levi's wanted to market to skateboarders while skirting the community's notoriously high bullshit meter, the shop built 11 skate parks across four continents, including on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota to help benefit the Oglala Lakota youth. For Google Play, Imprint created an original podcast called "City Soundtracks" that's a guide to the musical highlights of different cities.
