Welcome to our brand new blog. If you know us, then everything below should sound pretty familiar. If not, now's as good a time as any to introduce ourselves. We are a full-service creative agency based in DC metro, Baltimore and NYC. We'd like to think we're pretty cool, but we'll let you be the judge.
We are a diverse family of energetic marketing people—full-time tastemakers who are passionate about our creativity and committed to cultural relevance.
Branders and marketers. Creatives and data scientists. Experts and enthusiasts. HZ is a collective of assorted talents and passions—a conglomerate of thinkers who independently represent irreplaceable potential and together offer insuppressible possibility. The result is a cacophony of crafts coming together to form a dynamic and energetic community of collaborators.
We may never shed our underdog mentality—but HZ has accomplished too much to continue calling ourselves “scrappy” and we’ve grown too big to overlook our escalating potential. We might still punch above our weight—but that speaks more to the scale of our work than as a slight against our size. We’re thought leaders—trailblazers and problem solvers. Our creativity is more than a force to be reckoned with—it’s the key to our success and a craft that we are perpetually honing.
What we are like is every bit as important as the work that we produce. It’s the madness behind the magic (or maybe that’s the other way around). Laid back but excitable; artistic but unpretentious; real, cool and really cool. Our tone is fun and lively, even when our content is schooling you on the facts. It’s not hard to find a niche to call your own at HZ—as long as you like the color orange.
There’s no way to pinpoint with any specificity what HZ’s culture is. We’re health nuts—bike riders, hikers and boot campers—and yet we’re fanatical foodies who line the block for meat fries from a food truck. We live the good life every day. We came to work but stayed to drink good beer and listen to great tunes through orange headphones.
Believe it or not, there are others out there like us — communicators looking for a new blog to bookmark. They’re interactive entrepreneurs, trouble shooters, word wranglers, clients, new business and new talent alike. We’re not creating this blog to brag about how great we are—it’s just that we get it. And we like talking to others who get it too.
Despite the many masks we wear, we are all driven by the power of creativity.
