About Us

Ogilvy Dublin has always been known for 360 degree brand communications. And powerful creative ideas have always been at the very centre of everything we do. Today, with the socialisation of brand communication, ideas are still the most important thing. The difference today is that understanding people and how they use, consume and interact with media and communications is more complex and more important than ever before.

At Ogilvy Dublin, we have mastered the understanding of what makes people tick, and use this understanding to create powerful ideas that people love. We call it a form of 360 ‘social thinking’.

This new thinking has required us to dissolve any traditional boundaries between the individual disciplines of advertising, activation, digital and direct. Our new interactive and collaborative approach to solving clients’ business issues is now perfectly tuned to today’s business landscape.

While Ogilvy Dublin is structured to provide an unparalleled 360 communications service to clients, the agency maintains its specialist competencies of advertising, CRM, Activation and Digital. The OgilvyOne team continue to provide CRM-only or Activation-only solutions when required, while the neo@Ogilvy team can provide digital-only solutions.

Ogilvy Dublin also comprises the Y&R Ireland agency team.While we continue to benefit from the resources of our international agency network, we have renewed our standing as an indigenous organisation and continue to work hand in hand with our sister company WHPR.
