THE FABLE BEHIND ELA

ELA is an integrated shop led by award-winning industry veterans. ELA was founded with the deep belief that brands are like humans. They need constant emotional stimulation in order to spark change and create true business growth. We want customers and brands to love and trust each other. We are media agnostic, extremely strategic and creative. We want to make pigs fly and Yetis tap dance alongside singing mermaids. In other words, we want to help brands achieve the impossible.


We love blurring the lines between providing traditional marketing services and working as an instant business development partner for our clients.


So what does ELA stand for? Elephants Love Ants, Everybody Loves Andre, Elegant Live Apples, Eclectic Lady Angels. ELA is whatever you want it to be. It’s a representation of our chameleonic approach to business and our clients’ diverse needs. We bend and mold to the situation we are given, embracing every step along the way.

24/7 IDEAS

Art Directors, copywriters, illustrators, developers, Yetis – you name it, we’ve got them. While everyone is a master at a specialty, our best work happens when we ignore our titles and create the best real-time advertising work ever as a team.

EXPERIENTIAL

We hate seeing our experiential team sitting around in our office. Not because we don't like them, but because it means they deserve to be out there having fun at work creating amazing trade shows, exhibit and special events for our clients.

DIGITAL

Sometimes, we look at our developers and seriously think they are wizards. They conjure up magic embedded within thousands of lines of codes, furiously developing things we've never heard of while somehow multi-tasking intense World of Warcraft game sessions.

MULTICULTURAL

ELA provides support for integrated advertising activities to all segments of advertisers across local and emerging markets from one single point. No matter what industry or culture you and your brand represents, ELA is happy to handle all of your multicultural needs.

SOCIAL MEDIA

Our experts in digital strategy, social media monetization, optimization, and management stay on top of existing and emerging trends in social networking -- choosing the most effective approach for each client.

STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT

Every creative we start does not begin in Photoshop. Our strategists start with a full analysis of our client's goals and market, which then helps them deliver the best insights and solutions that lead our creativity.

ENTERTAINMENT

Today’s entertainment brands need results fast and cannot afford to wait. In fact, we modeled out entire agency workflow around a process we call “the fierce urgency of yesterday”, quickly aligning our strategy-first approach with great creative to develop effective ideas for the entertainment industry.
