An advertising & digital agency you’ll really like working with?

Hi, that’s us.

AdvertisinG  +  Branding  +  Direct Marketing  +  Digital  +  Social Media

It’s pronounced ban-doo-ho

Now that’s out of the way, let’s talk about who we are. The easy answer is we’re a New York City full-service advertising, direct and digital agency. But there’s lots of those. So, what do our clients say makes us special? Of course, there’s the roll up our sleeves, we’re in this together attitude. The honest, thoughtful counsel. And the always doing what’s best for them—not for us—way we run things.

But to us that’s not enough. What our clients will tell you make us really special is that we think. Yes, we really think about how to create the most openable email or direct mail. The most compelling digital or social ads. The smartest ad campaigns. Every time, from the smallest assignment to the largest. And because we think, our clients aren’t sending us back to start over on creative.To start over on strategy. It’s right from day one. Try us out. You’ll see how the “wow, Bandujo really got it” makes us different and makes your marketing life so much easier.

Our mission is simple.
Meet you. Help you. Wow you.

When it comes to advertising and marketing that works, it’s all about getting customers to pick you. Buy from you. Stick with you. But how? To us, it’s always about what you have to say. What makes you better? Unique? What makes you the brand they want to do business with? And that’s where our clients tell us we shine. Like really shine. We find the stories, the messages, they didn’t even realize they had. Like when we started telling parents that the really smart kids go to Kumon. Suddenly kids are clamoring to go where the smart kids go. Or when we transformed Vogue into the gift of originality, Vanity Fair into the gift of conversation. And when we made Coke and Pepsi our biggest enemies by asking New Yorkers if they were pouring on the pounds. Take a look at some of our work and then let’s find what you have to say.

Our Work

We'll uncover what makes your brand one-of-a-kind, then make it unforgettable.

Parents thought Kumon was tutoring.

We gave them a new way to see the brand, sending a vast, untapped audience clamoring to enroll.

Coke says “teach the world to sing”?

We exposed why soda isn’t all puppy dogs and rainbows. Our “most disgusting ad campaign of all time” shocked the world. But it sure worked.

It’s always been called a magazine gift subscription.

We got gift-givers to visualize Condé Nast magazines in a fresh new way, and make them the hottest new “old fashioned” gifts of the season.

You’d think financial products are built with common sense.

We showed investors why their non-WisdomTree ETFs weren’t. $50 billion of investment growth later, it appears they agreed with us.

Everyone else says second opinion.

But to frightened, new cancer patients, that sounds like a delay they can’t afford. We gave them a new perspective that’s saving lives. That’s what you call really rewarding advertising.

Hugo BOSS says tailoring, fit, quality.

So did everybody else. Then we proposed a more fitting way to inspire their millennial target.

Smokers are unfazed by “smoking kills” messages

So our ads got them to think about smoking in a whole new way. And boy, did they. The New York City and Los Angeles quit lines got the most calls ever.

Superior customer service. Blah, blah, blah.

Is there a consumer on the planet that believes that line anymore? We gave Chase a better way to frame their approach to service.

Walking around NYC naked is a bad idea.

But everyone does it, phone in hand, every day. Our ad campaign showed the NYC's public wifi users why it’s time to rethink their habits.

Old and stodgy vs. experienced and feisty.

A simple change in perspective helped us transform the brand image of New Jersey’s oldest law firm.

Lesson plans? Check. Retirement plans? Not so much.

Time-starved teachers, stressing in silence about retirement, weren’t taking action. We gave them a way to relax and take charge.

A Private Bank? That’s for grandpa.

Or so they thought. Until we showed successful millennials why a private bank isn’t a dusty old relic for rich retirees.

Clear values, with a big serving of family values.

In an industry where it’s all about price, we gave American families more compelling reasons to actually like and choose DISH.

We convinced them to quit. Now what?

Our anti-smoking ads worked. But quitters still needed help when the urge to light up struck. Our response? We’ve got an app for that.

The cure for fear-driven HIV advertising.

Fear creates stigma. So we’re changing the conversation about HIV, with advertising for New York City that empowers and celebrates as it educates.
