Godfrey Dadich Partners (GDP) brings together the best of journalism, strategy, and design to deliver The New Editorial—engaging and meaningful communications. From documentary films and longform journalism to corporate strategies and brand campaigns, GDP helps brands, organizations, and movements tell better stories. GDP was founded in February 2017 by co-CEOs Patrick Godfrey and Scott Dadich. Godfrey co-founded Godfrey Q in 2003, and fourteen years later Dadich joined to lead a new kind of firm. Godfrey Dadich Partners is a part of the kyu Collective. And we’re looking for a Group Account Director to join our team.

The firm is purpose-built for the complex times we live in. Organizations need to know who they are, what they stand for, and what they’re here to do. Godfrey Dadich Partners offers “The New Editorial” to its clients, taking a journalistic approach to helping organizations tell their authentic stories. These narratives come to life in compelling ways—such as long-form articles, printed magazines, documentary films, podcasts, photo essays and editorial illustrations—with the firm’s deep expertise in design.
