  • Southwest and GSD&M have been partners since 1981. Back then, we were both rowdy upstarts on a mission to give everyone the freedom to fly. Together, we asked the country, Wanna Get Away? We took a stand that bags fly free. And now, in response to other airlines’ outrageous fees, we responded with a single word: Transfarency—a commitment to low fares with nothing to hide. Proving once again that Southwest is the only airline with heart.
  • Dodge may be an American car brand but they don’t make boring sedans and sluggish people movers. They build high performance muscle cars and SUVs infamous for their insane speed and unmatched horsepower. GSD&M relaunched the brand under a new, category-defying campaign that shows the world that Dodge is Domestic. Not Domesticated.
  • When we partnered with Popeyes in the fall of 2008, they were a struggling brand with a stock price hovering around five bucks. Newly reborn as Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, we introduced Popeyes as a paradox in the fast food world: a kitchen that cooks the slow, flavorful Louisiana way in a restaurant that serves it up fast. In 2017—with a stock price of almost $80—Popeyes was acquired by Restaurant Brands International. Today, the brand continues to flourish. And we keep breaking through the clutter with a strong social presence and press-generating stunts like 12-Hour Drive-Thru and Emotional Support Chicken.
  • Defend America by dominating air, space and cyberspace. This is the purpose of the U.S. Air Force, and it requires our nation’s best and brightest. Since 2000, GSD&M has proudly partnered with the Air Force to recruit these men and women to what is arguably the most high-tech organization on the planet (and off). In the process, we have helped the Air Force meet enlisted goals every year with creative work that has been consistently recognized, including multiple Cyber Lions at the Cannes Advertising Festival.
    Hilton approached our team at GSD&M with the challenge of marketing three separate brands – Embassy Suites, Homewood Suites and Home2 Suites – under the same umbrella. What makes these three brands stand apart is that a “suite” is never an upgrade or an extra when you stay. We saw that as an opportunity to democratize the suite experience and created the All Suites family of hotels to represent a collection of hotels where every room is a suite. After all, we know people have a lot to bring on their trip – clothes, work, attitude, spirit – and we believe that everyone has the right to a bigger, better room to fit it all. We launched a new campaign comprised of four different videos, room tours, a social media contest and digital buys. We’re telling the world that it doesn’t matter whether your personal baggage is physical or metaphorical. When every room is a suite, there’s room for that. So go ahead. BRING IT.
  • The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company isn’t your normal, everyday multinational tire manufacturer. It is an American icon: gritty, genuine and authentic. But for most people, purchasing tires ranks somewhere between filing income taxes and getting a dental exam. So we work especially hard to create an emotional connection to tires, something most of us don’t normally care about. And while we might not be able to ever stop tire buying from being a grudge purchase, we are creating resonance and a bond between people and every tire worthy of being labeled Goodyear.
  • Around the world, Universal Parks and Resorts are the epicenter of all things awesome. It’s where you can finally let go of all your “have to’s” and focus on all your “want to’s.” At GSD&M, we know a thing or two about good times and couldn’t be happier we found our fun-match in Universal. We’ve been working side-by-side to find new ways to get the world to stop taking itself so seriously and just let go at the place designed specifically for exactly that. When you walk through the gates at Universal, you never know what’s going to happen, but you can bet on it being fun. And that’s what we do best.
  • One of America’s most successful new start-ups, Harry’s partnered with GSD&M to help launch its brand. As an emerging men’s grooming brand, Harry’s is committed to amplifying the ongoing cultural conversation around what it means to be a man today. Now more than ever, men are drawing on a broader range of emotions and values than have been traditionally acceptable for a “real man.” Today’s man is strong and nurturing, self-assured and accepting of others. Because in the end, a real man is simply a good man.
  • What separates Hampton from the suite of sameness? Their friendly people. So we built a campaign that showcased the difference they make, highlighting stories of travelers getting out and about with a little help from our friends. Our first campaign, “We Go Together,” which featured music from Wild Cub, set the stage, garnering about 3.5 million views on YouTube. We followed that up with hardworking spots to accent their amenities in an unexpected brand voice. Whether you’re looking for a friendly host or free waffles, we show that Hampton should be your first stop along the way.
  • Remember that neighborhood spot with the red roof? The one where Little League teams came after games? Where you spent all your spare change at the arcade? Well, Pizza Hut is more than your childhood pizza place from yesteryear. It’s actually one of the biggest pizza chains in America, and it’s time for everyone to wake up and smell the pepperoni because No One Out Pizzas The Hut. Pizza Hut is hot, fast, reliable, warm-fuzzy-feeling, relax-and-be-yourself goodness in every house in America. Delivering both a good deal and a good time like no other pizza can. GSD&M is excited to partner with Pizza Hut to re-spark America’s love for the brand and hold on to the title of America’s Favorite Pizza for generations to come.
  • One of America’s original iconic brands, Lee has been innovating for more than 125 years. Since its founding by the larger-than-life H.D. Lee, its clothing has outfitted the storied folks whose can-do spirit built our country. Eager to stake a more sizable claim of the denim category, Lee sought the expertise of GSD&M. By returning to the company’s roots to tell the Lee story, raising visibility and changing consumer perceptions, we’re reinvigorating the brand and winning back Lee’s rightful place in the denim category and in consumers’ closets.
  • Almost 20 years ago we created “These Guys are Good.” for the PGA TOUR. Since then, it’s gone on to become the longest-running and most recognizable tagline in all of sports. But after injuries and off-the-course issues sidelined golf’s biggest star, ratings began to drop. This problem, however, created an opportunity. We took “These Guys are Good.” and applied it to a new breed of golfers like Jordan, Ricky and Rory. They were stylish, athletic and played with a swagger. And as these new stars began climbing the leaderboards, golf fans paid attention. Ratings shot up 21%. The number of unique users on PGA TOUR digital platforms is up 13%. And “These Guys are Good.” is more relevant than ever.  

  • 112 years. That’s how long Jos. A. Bank has been designing quality menswear crafted by artisans. A heritage brand that’s a staple in the world of menswear, as fashion evolves, so does Jos. A. Bank. Now it’s our job at GSD&M to reintroduce the brand by showing how it's reinventing traditional style tailored for today’s man. Together, we’re not just crafting stylish and obtainable clothing for the modern man—we’re creating a revolution.
  • Northwestern Mutual is mostly known for selling life insurance. But today the company is transforming and rallying around a unique whole-picture approach to achieving financial security. America is stuck in a gap between what the industry offers and what people really need. Northwestern Mutual is here to close that gap—replacing confusion with clarity and helping people both protect and grow their wealth. They’re here to help people Live Life Differently. And we’re just beginning to help them tell their story.
  • For the last 60 years, Food Lion has been making food affordable for the communities they serve. When they approached us about taking that mission one step further by ensuring every family has access to not only affordable food, but fresh food, we said “yes, please” with a cherry on top. In 2017, we joined the 1,100-store grocery chain in their effort to put fresh and affordable food on the tables of families across the Southeast. From partnerships with local farmers to ensure peak freshness to giving back through the Food Lion Feeds program, Food Lion is not your typical grocer. Thankfully, we’re not your typical agency. And together, we’re cooking up something great.
  • One of our newest clients, Hilton Garden Inn charged us with revitalizing their social and digital presence. We responded by doing it in much the same way as they help to revitalize weary business and leisure travelers on the road. With our digital refresh, it wasn’t long (less than a year) before they called on us to take charge of their entire business. We look forward to where we can take things in the years to come. (We’re looking at you, Hawaii!)
  • The Blue Bunny brand was born in 1935 when the Wells brothers held a “Name that Ice Cream” contest in The Sioux City Journal. A child in Sioux City won a $25 cash prize for submitting the name and image of “Blue Bunny.” Today, Wells Enterprises is the largest privately held, family-owned ice cream manufacturer in the United States. When our media team received the call that Wells Enterprises wanted to partner with us in support of relaunching the Blue Bunny brand in 2016, well, we hopped at the chance to add them as a member of our family.
  • In a world taken over by health crazes and ice cream imitations, people are depriving themselves of the things they really love. That’s why Chilly Cow is here…to save you with the first light ice cream that actually tastes like the real thing. GSD&M helped the brand identify strategic target and build the media strategy to launch the brand in 2018, and have continued to help the brand urge consumers to Save Yourself from Yourself™.
  • Our media team at GSD&M has an extreme sweet tooth, so it was thrilled to bring on Storck USA as a partner in 2013. Shoot, our candy jars were already filled with some of our favorite Storck products, such as Werther’s Original and Merci, and now our media plans are, too. We have seen Storck’s business grow tremendously over the past three years and look forward to continuing this sweet ride.
  • Turns out, a lot of people view oil and natural gas as relics of the past and only see the industry for its negative perception rather than for the amazing things it makes possible. But quite the contrary, the oil and natural gas industry is mission critical to the future of energy and progress. So in 2017, we launched Power Past Impossible to demonstrate how natural gas and oil make modern life happen in surprising and unexpected ways. We set out to increase overall perception of the industry—to turn America’s perception from “Big Oil” to “Smart Oil.” By presenting facts they never knew. By giving API a modern look and feel. And by showing how the industry uses innovation and conservation to Power Past Impossible.
  • The Austin area is ripe with entrepreneurs, and Gordon Logan of Sport Clips is no exception. In the early ’90s he saw an underserved market (mens and boys haircuts) with little meaningful competition. Today, it is the leader of the space with over 1,300 locations across the U.S. and Canada. So who better to buy and plan his media than the entrepreneurs at GSD&M down the road?
