Pros

  • High-quality outputs
  • Wide range of reputable clients
  • Accommodates prospective clients
  • Diverse workforce divided into dynamic teams

Cons

  • Mostly deals with big brands
  • Service is expensive

DDB, short for Doyle Dane Bernbach, is an award-winning, renowned advertising agency in the world. You read that right—not just Singapore but the world!

True, their Singapore headquarters is just one of their many satellite offices, but that doesn’t mean that the quality of DDB Singapore isn’t on a global scale. As a matter of fact, one look at their portfolio and we were immediately blown away.

Right off the bat, you just know that their projects are effective for increasing the online visibility of a brand due to their creativity and quality. So much so that big brands like Pepsi, Twix, McDonald’s, and Adidas have actually sought their services.

We were also equally amazed at how dynamic their teams are, which range from design, media, web programming, and of course, campaigns. 

It goes to show how every project isn’t just a one-man team but a group effort consisting of individuals that bring different ideas to the table.

With how reputable the company is, you’d think that DDB would cherry-pick their clients, but they were surprisingly accommodating of our inquiries.

When asked about their process of producing an advert for a client, they shared that it’s different for every company and is dependent on the audience which the ad is for, the message it wants to convey, and the desired outcome.

Overall, it was a pleasure transacting with DDB. We’d like to caution you, though, that we waited for a relatively long amount of time before they graciously accommodated our questions regarding their services.

So, if you want to hire DDB for your brand or business, make sure to do it ahead of the timeframe you wish to launch your advertisement. If anything, their service is worth the wait!

Pros

  • Good value for money
  • Experts in traditional advertising strategies

Cons

  • Limited advertising services
  • Advertising methods are not up-to-date

If you’re a start-up owner and want to boost your brand or products for a reasonable price, it wouldn’t hurt to try Diseno Advertising.  

Diseno’s top priority is to increase brand visibility through various methods of advertising. They particularly specialize in cinema, newspaper, magazine, and out-of-home or OOH advertising.

When we asked how they establish the framework for their campaigns, Diseno told us that it’s all about planning and organizing all appropriate components which shall be incorporated to create a campaign.

Ultimately, Diseno guarantees you an output that won’t just give you the best value for the price you paid but also brand recall and awareness.

It’s also worth noting that this company does modern and traditional methods of advertising. But upon thoroughly assessing their works, we think that adverts done in a traditional way are much more compelling than their up-to-the-trend ones.

In all honesty, their works aren’t much to gush about in terms of creativity and design, but knowing that they stick to the fundamentals of old-school advertising, it makes sense that their techniques aren’t out of their comfort zone.

But hey, their overall portfolio is still decent and not at all unworthy of your consideration. Check them out, and maybe there’s something there that might suit you!

Pros

  • Offers a wide range of services
  • Award-winning digital marketing agency
  • Expert in establishing brands through digital advertising

Cons

  • Doesn’t prioritize non-digital advertising
  • Limited visuals for ad campaigns

Although Media One is generally known for its marketing strategies, we’d like for you to not turn a blind eye to its advertising services especially when it comes to branding.

If you’ve only just started a business and your brand still needs establishing but you have no clue how to, MediaOne does brand consultancy and content marketing on top of content creation.

In fact, their very own mantra when it comes to creating content for your brand is “First impressions count.” And we’re sure you agree, especially if you’re a newbie to the trade.

However, true to its namesake, Media One’s services heavily revolve around digital marketing and advertising. So, out-of-home (OOH) advertising and other classic advertising methods that aren’t online are technically out of the question.

But if digital marketing favors your brand more than the traditional way, we won’t stop you from seeking the service of this revered company.

And if you’re still hesitant to do so, some of their noteworthy clients are Acer, Canon, Singtel, and Changi Airport Singapore, among many others.

Pros

Cons

  • Limited advertising services
  • Advertising methods are not up-to-date
  • Limited visuals for ad campaigns

One look at Notion Age’s portfolio and you’ll know that you’re in for the classics.

Notion Age’s works are straightforward in terms of style and technique but at the same time, still manage to suit a wide array of clients. 

Speaking of clients, Notion Age has worked for 7-Eleven Singapore, AMC Group, and Cycle and Carriage (Mercedes-AMG), among many others.

What we like most about this company is that it presents a balance of digital and traditional advertising, which is important if you’re a new business owner and wish to boost your brand on every platform possible.

When we asked about their other services, the company stated that they also do search engine optimization, content management system, and interactive and web design.

So, if you want the full package, Notion Age might just be your business’ most suitable partner.

However, while we generally commend this company’s diverse services, we think that there is a need to update its portfolio because even its website looks a little dated.

In a time when millennials and Gen Zs are entering the business field, Nation Age needs to step up its visual content if they wish to serve the new players in town.

Pros

  • State-of-the-art outputs
  • Diverse workforce divided into dynamic teams
  • Offers a wide range of services

Cons

  • Doesn’t prioritize non-digital advertising
  • Not quick to accommodate prospective clients

One look at R/GA’s portfolio and you’ll immediately know the quality of outputs they produce. But more than the visual aspect of their work, RG/A is a company that puts effort into premium customer relationships and experience.

Beyond their state-of-the-art campaigns that could genuinely pass for films, they also offer services on brand design and consulting, media planning and buying, and relationship design in order to effectively communicate your business’ message to your audience.

For us, R/GA came across as a storyteller. 

As part of its design for innovation, this company establishes a brand in a noncontemporary manner. We mean that they don’t just prioritize how a brand is recalled but also how a brand reaches people on a personal level.

And all of these strategies are effectively executed through a culture of collaboration between various talented individuals who share their respective knowledge and expertise in the field of brand advertising.

At this point, it’s now obvious that this company isn’t suitable for OOH advertising, which is a bummer for those who want R/GA’s creativity brought into traditional advertisements.

Lastly, given the demand for their service, it was not an easy feat for us to attract their full attention. It took a while before we got to speak with them.

Pros

  • More than 100 years of accumulated experience
  • Collaborates closely with clients
  • Offers a suite of creative, digital and media planning services

Cons

  • Closed on weekends
  • Little information on website

Blak Labs is an independent creative agency with the sole purpose of delivering the best ideas to get people liking, loving, talking, sharing, remembering, and most important of all, buying their clients’ brand.

For these things, we think that experts are needed for real results, and we sure believe that the Blak Labs team has exactly that.

Their owners have more than a century of accumulated experience that we think will deliver results, no matter the channel.

What we like about them is that they believe that close collaboration with their clients leads to powerful ideas. Hence, they take the time to listen and learn to get beneath the skin of each brand.

They have a range of creative, digital and media planning services that we think will help your brand.

The only thing we’d like to comment on is the lack of information about their services on their website. We’d appreciate it if we could know more about what they do and what they can offer.

Otherwise, we highly recommend them!
