About Us

Carmichael Lynch was established in 1962, and we’ve been re-establishing ourselves every day since to deliver the Unfair Ideas that give our clients an unfair advantage. Because we believe that’s what this business requires: a fresh perspective, a new approach, and an interdependent group of people dedicated to taking on whatever new challenge or opportunity the day brings. That’s why we bring a holistic approach to marketing, gathering together the best of all disciplines under one roof. We understand that today’s modern companies need a creative partner that works the way they do: fast, open, and collaboratively. Which, done correctly, is itself a little unfair.

Our Clients

We’re incredibly fortunate to have the partners we do. That’s why we work so hard to keep them not just top of mind, but deep in hearts.

What We Do

Account Management

To make truly great, effective work, you need a business partner between our office and yours. Someone who knows your consumer. Understands your business. And lives and breathes your culture.

Brand Planning

In Brand Planning, we delve deep into your business. We get to know your audience. And we unearth what makes them tick, move, make choices and decisions. When the strategy makes a straight path to the heart, the advertising will, too.

Creative

The Creative Department assignment is simple. Take all the great thinking and form it into brilliant ideas that inspire consumers to engage with brands, redefine categories and give you an unfair advantage.

Integrated Production

We’re a full-service production group that can find a way to make anything happen. We bring ideas to life across digital, film/video, social and in-person experiences to engage consumers.

Media Planning & Buying

We focus on the consumer. We learn everything we can about who they are, how they think, and where they live. Then, with actionable insights, we leverage our media and content provider partners to deliver with efficiency and power.

Marketing Analytics

We’re all swimming in oceans of data. The trick is turning data into something useful. Distilling it down to the exact, crystal-clear drop that lets you know immediately how to power your business forward. It’s math, not magic.

Social

We bring brands to life online with a comprehensive range of digital and social media services – including content creation – and are able to scale these services based on your unique situation and resources.

Public Relations

A key differentiator for Carmichael Lynch is Carmichael Lynch Relate, our award-winning PR firm. While the two remain separate, stand-alone agencies, together they snap together to provide a fully-integrated offering.

Culture

We recognize the importance of culture at Carmichael Lynch and see it as an investment, not an expense. We seek to inspire our employees and come together as creative haymakers.

DIAL

Diversity of thoughts, background and experiences is paramount in creating unfair ideas - more than 30% of our agency is actively involved in our Diversity Inclusion Action League (DIAL).

Inclusion

An inclusive culture is essential in effective cross-discipline collaboration. We undertake great effort in educating our employees on one another as people, developing practices that promote inclusivity and providing resources for new employees.

Volunteer Activities

Carmichael Lynch employees volunteer more than 1,000 hours per year with various organizations. We've refurbished houses, served meals, painted murals, made blankets and more.

Roofstage Pass

We've hosted more than 35 concerts on our 17,000 square foot rooftop, bringing in local food and drink vendors to help celebrate the Minnesota summers.

Health and Wellness

We take pride in the Health & Wellness of our employees. We have a fleet of bicycles for employee use, lunchtime yoga on the roof, an in-office locker room, and weekly massage therapy.

Intermission

These lunch n' learn events create a forum for employees to share their unique passions outside of work. Nearly the entire agency attends and learns about ghost hunting, owning a brewery, climbing expeditions, extended volunteer efforts abroad, and more.

Green Team

The Green Team helps facilitate and promote sustainable operations - working to increase recycling and composting, reducing waste, and even maintaining a rooftop garden in the summer.

Family

We proudly support parents and families with an agency Parent's Group, Family Date Nights, leading parental leave policies, phased return, multiple mother's rooms, and more. We were also named a 2018 Outstanding Company for Working Mothers.

Our People

An agency is its people. And these are ours. Thinkers, makers, dreamers, artists, analysts, coffee-consumers, and a surprising amount of bikers from all over, from all walks of life, who make Carmichael Lynch what it is today.
