JUST A BOUTIQUE DIGITAL AGENCY BORN IN AKRON

We view the realm of business more like an act of gardening than an act of war. As such we regularly use verbs such as cultivating rather than competing, tending rather than acquiring, growing rather than winning. Practically this means we have created and we are continuing to create a culture where we foster and encourage the sharing of information that many companies would protect. We demonstrate to our clients how to do many of the things we do.

We train our partners in our approach and processes. It’s an extension of our view of being transparent and upholding people's freedom. Ironically, we are extraordinarily competitive. We just don't view people as the object of our competitive nature. Instead, we view the tilling of the earth and the scaling of mountains as our external competition. Then people, all people, are co-laborers in the toil of surviving and flourishing against that external, non-human, competition.

Born in the geographic center of the Rust Belt, ipso's Midwest ethos is hard-working, refreshingly transparent, and eager to pitch in and help a neighbor.

There are elements of irony permeating ipsoCreative.

This is especially evident in the fact that while all of our collaboration, both internally and externally, can be accomplished remotely, our office space is vital to our work. Our studio serves as a central hub for collaboration among the ipso team. Together, in person, we are more productive, more creative, more attentive across a variety of tasks. You might not expect it, but our office is as vital to our work in the digital realm as the technology we use to create designs and code.
