Carol is the CEO of (CAFI), the Carol Adams Foundation Incorporated a non-profit organization based in Richmond, Virginia.The mission is to provide emergency assistance to women and children who are victims of domestic violence. Through the foundation, women and children will have a temporary safety net which will enable them to live violence-free and have the opportunity to become self-sufficient.
Helping to build strong and healthy communities benefits us all. We apply the same principles of innovation, collaboration and empowerment to our work in the community that we do in our business.
Just as we did when our company was founded in 1970, we continue to call ourselves “printers” – and so do our customers. Makes sense. Offset, digital, wide-format, and letterpress printing are today the core technologies of Worth Higgins & Associates. UV ink and coating, foil stamping, embossing and die cutting are tools of the printing process that we handle extraordinarily well in helping our clients achieve their creative goals and take their ideas beyond their imaginations.
Consider cultural impact as The Martin Agency’s modus operandi. When Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen DeGeneres and Stephen Colbert spontaneously start talking about our clients…when our clients are a Jeopardy! clue and Wheel of Fortune reveal…when SNL parodies our man in a lady wig…we consider it both a good day and all in a day’s work. And maybe a Hump Day, too. A full-service advertising agency with a goal of not just making our clients seen – but making them culturally relevant, Martin has created steady buzz around GEICO, OREO, UPS, Donate Life and Walmart, to name a few. And we’ve been doing it as far back as 1969 when we penned Virginia is for Lovers. People still wonder, What can Brown do for you? Work that leverages culture, wakes people up, fights invisibility, and gets talked about – it’s what we do, and we’ve done it for 53 years.
Joe Smith is the brand and creative consultancy of Padilla, which dives deep into business challenges – beyond symptoms to the very root of what needs solving. We become a member of your team and an advocate for your customers, uncovering that sweet spot where your needs and theirs intersect. Then we help you craft the strategies, stories and innovations that grow your brand.
Here’s what you need to know about us. We break traditions. We break molds. We break through. Our passion is to help you make the change you need to succeed. From strategy to execution, we create the kind of change that brings you closer to the people you serve: citizens, consumers, and entire communities.
