Made. On a Mission.
While some see mission-based businesses as inherently limiting or restrictive, Made has set out to prove that its mission to create American jobs can enable a radically different approach to building an agency, with radically different business opportunities, for a radically different type of Made in the USA consumer. Founded by a creative director, a designer and a creative technologist, Made has emerged from the depths of the Great Recession to reinvent what the modern advertising agency should look like—from the talent it attracts, to the clients it works for, to the type of work it produces. John presents the upstart agency’s work along with an impassioned case for the importance of making things closer to where they are consumed.
