About VIRTUE

Since 2006, we’ve used our entertainment DNA to help brands capture the attention of their audiences with work that speaks to our most primal instincts of pleasure, attraction and delight. We believe in commanding, not demanding; entertaining, not interrupting; contributing, not leaching. Because brands should add to the world they want to be a part of — not distract from it.

Using proprietary tools, access, and intelligence, we find new ways for brands to matter to the world through an entertainment-centric approach that plunges its hooks into audiences’ subconscious and refuses to let go.

Virtue is behind the Cannes-Lions award-winning Carlings adDRESS the Future and Q, the Genderless Voice; the award-winning Google Chrome's Don’t Be A Browser’ and Park MGM’s Las Vegas Love Stories; and Weedmaps’ Museum of Weed, Dove’s Dear Future Dads, and so much more...
