Why Headstand?

We're agency model disruptors who march to a different drumbeat - our own.

Choosing a communications partner can feel like deciding between emerald and green – after a while, it all starts to look the same.

We established Headstand to fill the white space. Agencies have become bogged down in process and cookie cutter approaches that are predictable and uncreative, with staid thinking that hasn’t changed in decades.

We're agency model disruptors who march to a different drumbeat – our own.




Turning the agency model on its head
Headstand is a consultancy, equally at home crafting strategies and executing the day-to-day. No templates, no preconceived team structure – it’s easy for clients to work with us because we work according to client needs, not our own. We take a personal approach to client service, and look at each assignment through its own lens, to hand curate ideas and programming that separates your brand from the crowd.  


Forging our own path
When we envisioned Headstand, we did so with the goal of working with vibrant client partners. It’s not about market size, product offerings or budget. It’s about aligning with companies where our passions ignite. When an opportunity comes our way that creates a spontaneous team brainstorm and we have a clear vision for how to make an impact, we know we’re onto something.

A new way of doing new business

We’re also selective; meaning, we choose our clients as much as they choose us. That means we say no sometimes. While to others that may seem limiting, to our team and our clients it’s inspiring and empowering.

Headstand’s selectivity means that our new business process is different from most. We evaluate each opportunity through a lens of its potential inspiration and impact. We will have as many questions for you as you will for us. Experience tells us clients appreciate this greater level of conversation and transparency as it helps them choose the right agency partner. Ultimately, that might not be Headstand. And that’s okay.

It also means it’s rare that we will respond to the traditional RFP, a fractured and dated process. 

However, because of our strong belief in our capabilities, Headstand is open to “testing the waters” with prospects in a number of ways so that you get to know our thinking - that might be a workshop, identifying innovative solutions to challenges, or brainstorming creative campaigns.
