Who are we?

The world is changing. Fast. But nothing is changing about the essence of good communication. There's one simple reason for that: people want to feel connected. With each other and with brands. Brands they have loved for years or brands they are meeting for the very first time. We provide that connection. From brand to human. And vice versa. For real.

Empathy. It's more than a buzzword at The Oval Office. It's simply our DNA. We use empathy to create campaigns that truly impact our client's target audience. We take the time to walk in people's shoes, to know what drives, inspires, repels or attracts them. This is how we really get to know the client and their target audience. We embrace empathy in everything we do because it brings out the best in people. And therefore also in brands.

The Oval Office puts the experience of people at the center of every campaign. Remember your first kiss? Exactly. That's what we call experience-driven. Authentic and creative communication that dares to mix everything: live, social and digital, content and media across all touchpoints. We're proud to work for A-brands across a wide variety of industries, including nonprofit and government. Our team of 90+ Officers combines all its talent in 8 areas of expertise.
