**Since this year’s MAX Awards are focused on making things more personal and highlighting each individual behind the work, we want to extend the same concept to our sponsors. Our levels of sponsorships are simply guidelines, and we are happy to tailor them to fit your company’s specific needs and capabilities.

COP-logomax-225x225Our holistic approach to digital user experience doesn’t fit cleanly into any one category. We unite the goal-driven marketing smarts of an agency, and the deep technical expertise of a product development house, with the drive, passion, and agility typically reserved for startups. 

With this blend of skills and attitude in our arsenal, we turn big ideas into successful realities.

We spend our time connecting the best digital creatives in the industry. Even better for you, we’ve been doing this for over 25 years as part of Aquent, so our talent network is unparalleled. We’re proud to say that we personally meet our candidates, have proprietary hands-on assessments, and are great at digging down to what our talent can do – and what they want to do – so that we can make the perfect match for our clients.
