Company Description

When Fallon opened its doors, it introduced itself to the world as “A new advertising agency for companies that would rather outsmart the competition than outspend them.” Over forty years later, media, culture, and even the definition of an ad has changed. But our commitment to outsmarting has never wavered. We’ve simply evolved and modernized it, whether that means creating multi-channel activations to drive billions of impressions (Arby’s), breaking the internet with an iconic pop culture reunion (Mean Girls + Walmart), or helping beloved cable franchises reinvent themselves on streaming platforms (Comedy Central + Showtime).

Regardless of the content or the context, we have a steadfast belief in THE POWER OF CREATIVITY and its ability to create an unfair competitive advantage for those brave enough to unleash it. We make big work for big brands on big stages. And we care about the work as much as we care about the people making it. We function as one integrated brain with media experts who think like creatives who think like strategists who think like account people. And together, our mission is to fuel the forward trajectory of businesses and brands.
