Meet the collective.

Co-op working space. Shared food. Secret rituals. This ad agency business sounds a lot like a commune to us.

Commune started as a joke. A bunch of us were burnt out working 80 hour weeks in New York City and decided to start a fake, virtual “Commune,” complete with individual skill-based roles and responsibilities that had nothing to do with marketing. At the very least, our invented utopia let us dream of warmer climates during yet another thundersnow. 

At some point we all had the same genius thought: why not turn this silly way to pass time into reality?

And while we may be in a seaside office instead of a patch of land upstate, and though our skills may be applied to solving business problems instead of growing crops, the result is the same – days spent among some of our closest friends, working on projects with people we love.

Life couldn’t be better and it shows in every piece of work and every client relationship. So whether you’re a potential client, partner, employee or friend, come join our Commune. There’s always room.

James is Co-Founder and CEO at Commune. When he’s not imagineering, making awesome stuff, upsetting everyone internally by constantly tweaking client work until it feels just right, he’ll be building things, messing around in boats, under cars, or sailing off to non-cell service areas and figuring out where to catch our next meal.

Michael is Commune’s Senior Copywriter. His career highlight is getting a spot banned from the radio in Florida, and his golfing highlight is shooting a smooth 65 with six birdies and an eagle. He tries to best each of these weekly.
