PM360 2018 Trailblazer Awards Silver Advertising Agency of the Year Calcium

At Calcium, “brand nourishment” is delivered in the form of powerful insights and ideas in the areas of strategy, creative, science, technology, and tactical programming. The agency is guided by a passion for clarity and focus (in the strategic realm) and boldness and memorability (in the creative realm). Above all, Calcium seeks to heighten brand engagement and strengthen customer activation by creating compelling brand experiences that powerfully resonate with people’s lives and needs.

The agency made a bold move over the course of the last two years by streamlining its number of clients from 30 to 9, which resulted in 2017 being Calcium’s best year to date, with a 50% increase in revenue. The relatively small company of 90 employees is truly embodying their philosophy: “We don’t want to be the biggest agency—just the best.”

Calcium is extremely proud to win the Silver for Agency of the Year…for the 2nd year in a row!

  • Calcium goes the extra step and provides literal nourishment to our employees every day in the form of the free lunch. Calcium believes in a two-way street: As much as the employee helps the agency, the agency helps the employee.
