We are champions of the idea, adept in all media. We like to work from the inside out, creating continuity from culture to customer. We believe you should do it before you say it, so you mean what you say.

We value curiosity, courage, intelligence, humanity, and originality. And we aspire to create change for the better.

our beliefs

Genesis by name, Genesis by nature.

In enterprise, every day is day one.
A chance to plant a flag, or fly one higher.
We partner with committed leaders
to create change for the better, in brand,
strategy, communications, and the real world.

Work from the center.

At the core of every worthy enterprise
is a single, simple truth. And the road to
a strong culture and a fiercely loyal customer
runs clear and straight from that center.

Champion the human being.

Every enterprise is the sum of its parts –
a community of employees, leaders, and investors.
Business is people, a chain that only has value
if it’s anchored in the human needs of the customer.

Be a catalyst for excellence.

We are an agent of change. We’re here to think
the unthinkable, in order to bring out the best
in our clients and in ourselves. When we help
organizations excel, we excel.

Solve the right problem.

In the jungle ecology of 21st century business,
the right answer is to ask the right questions.
Our business is journalism, not fiction.
It’s the relentless pursuit of the elegant solution.

Be bold.

If you want to be loved because you’re different,
be different. Not just in what you claim,
but in everything you do. The world is shopping
for integrity and originality. A yard of effort,
a mile of trust.


Genesis has always formed deep and lasting relationships with senior executives and their teams—in some cases working with the same business leaders in successive companies. At least one principal partner is always immersed in a project, and each one is an expert in his or her discipline.

client testimonials

“Most firms can deliver strategy, but when they move to the creative, they fall short and you wonder ‘what happened here?’ The creative product is where the rubber meets the road and Genesis is just fantastic.”

Ian Arthur, Chief Marketing Officer

“Genesis is accepted as a peer because they talk at the CEO, CFO, COO level. The C-level executives put down any skepticism and embrace them as a part 
of the team.”

Colleen Hanley, VP, Business and Product Strategy

“Genesis was able to make our customers fall in love with our brand. People have become emotional about 
the product and the brand, and Genesis brought that all together.”

“Crafting a 100th anniversary message is an opportunity few companies have. At Steelcase we wanted to celebrate in a unique and inspiring way that reflected our history and focused on the future. The Genesis team was an exceptional strategic and creative partner to Steelcase and brought to life the core idea central to our company, that it is not companies that survive – it is ideas. Genesis helped us to express this in a very compelling campaign and visually attractive identity and tools that created excitement and conversation amongst all our stakeholders.”

could have never come up with in a million years!”
