Different Makes All the Difference
When we tell you that we’re different, we mean that from our approach and capabilities through to your experience and the results we deliver, we are unlike every other agency out there. Seriously. We are dyed-in-the-wool, you’ll-be-happy-you-chose-us different. It’s exactly what you need to out-think, out-create and out-perform your competition. Born for the post-digital world, we’re focused on helping you build your brand, enhance the customer experience and attract top talent.
Working with Us
Our team is intensely focused on helping you break through the noise and make real connections with the audiences you need to reach, all while delivering exceptional value. We’re big enough to provide the services and support you need, but small enough to give you the personal attention you deserve. At the end of the day, we don’t just want you to love our work, but to love working with us, too.
A (Very) Brief History
Founded in 2007 by partners Bill Sterzenbach and John Fimiani, Upward rapidly grew into a comprehensive, full-service digital-first agency. Over the years, we’ve been fortunate to integrate the talents of agencies like Oxiem, Springboard, Hafenbrack, Genessa and Graphica. We're a team of 70 strategists and specialists who deliver brand-building services in the B2B, healthcare, education, destination community and consumer industries. Upward serves our regional, national and global client base from six offices in the U.S. and Europe.
