About

Marketing Is Sacred To Us . . .

Because we believe that words and ideas can change the world. Since the beginning of time, we have used stories to make sense of the world, form our beliefs, and inform our actions.

The proliferation of social media has unlocked boundless potential for today’s marketers (you!) to shift the cultural narrative and solve the world’s greatest challenges. The internet has granted us the power to share aspirational, heart-centered stories in nearly every corner of the globe - instantaneously.

That’s why we partner with heroic entrepreneurs who are driven mad by a purpose to catalyze planet-wide change. By scientifically and methodically disseminating messages in a sustainable (profitable) way, we support organizations tackling problems of the highest stakes — problems that threaten the health of our ecosystems and the survival of our species.

If you’re dedicated to making a difference, it’s our duty to make your voice heard. You hold the vision; we hold the microphone.

The Origin Of Magic

Before we aligned with purpose-driven companies, impact investors, grassroots activists, revolutionary thought leaders, and global changemakers to spread tens of millions of love-based messages each week in over 150 countries…

We were just three guys who were fed up with the shallow, fear-based marketing that permeates the web.

We looked out into the industry and saw thousands of talented creatives and strategists using their gifts of persuasion to accelerate the dizzying flywheel of production and consumption. We saw bright minds wasting their talents to deepen the bottomless pockets of corporations devoid of heart. We held a firm belief that, when given the choice to do work that matters, most would be willing to come back to the “light”.

Magic exists to restore the balance, build an army of conscious marketers, play a part in reversing the “profit at any cost” paradigm, and scale missions we viscerally believe in.

Our conviction to “do well by doing good” has guided our every move. And now, what started as a little underdog agency in a living room in Boulder, has become a force to be reckoned with, taking market share from Goliath corporations, one customer at a time.

If you’re elevating consciousness, enhancing health and wellbeing, or regenerating the planet, we’ll move mountains to deliver results you’re excited about.

Core Values

Being Real

We value transparency, vulnerability, authenticity, and the strength of our relationships above all else.

Ownership Mindset

We take responsibility for our emotions, actions, and work. The buck stops with each team member.

Keeping It Weird

We’re prone to freestyle rap battles, taking meetings in onesies, and spontaneous mid-day dance breaks.

Personal Growth

A foundation in personal, professional, and spiritual development empowers our team to be the best versions of themselves.

Constant Learning

We thirst for new opportunities to learn and are radically open to feedback because we know that learners are leaders.
