    Traction

    Traction is a full-service marketing agency located in San Francisco. With a team of nearly 250 employees, Traction provides web design, advertising, UI/UX design, and branding services to enterprise and midmarket clients.

    Notable Project

    In November 2014, Traction designed an ad campaign for a staffing firm that was looking to revamp its digital content to reach younger audiences. Traction used A/B testing to design a new website, print and radio ads, and youth-oriented video ads. The client appreciated Traction's suggestions and willingness to do more than asked when given projects.  

    "One of the things that I like about Traction is that when they do work for a company, they will always come back with something extra. You can hire them to do concepting, but they’re always going to come back with some unique digital experience that you haven’t actually asked for but is above and beyond what you were expecting." – Senior Director of Brand Marketing, Global Staffing Firm
