Born & Bred named to Adweek's Fastest Growing Agencies for Second Time


The ever-evolving brand and creative agency Born & Bred has been named to Adweek’s 100 Fastest Growing Agencies for the second time.

Spurred by new relationships with a diverse list of clients, Born & Bred drove growth by adding campaign and social media work to an already strong foundation of branding services. Building on experience with category disruptors like Checkmate and Lumanu, they forged new partnerships with global brands like Pfizer, PepsiCo and Discord.

“Every business has to evolve. And while we’ve added new capabilities, one thing stays true: our commitment to bold work,” said Kyle Merwin, Born & Bred Co-Founder and Forbes 30 Under 30 Member. “Joining the list again is a testament to what our team consistently brings to the table.”

Making the list for the second time required adapting to changing market conditions and client needs. By expanding their offerings beyond traditional brand strategy and design, Born & Bred delivered award-winning and effective creative work for startup to enterprise.

Adweek’s list, expanded to 100 for the first time this year, recognizes agencies who have continued to thrive in what’s being called a “silent recession”. To be eligible, agencies provided three years of earned revenue from 2020-2022 and rankings were determined by percentage increases. Born & Bred made the list with a 55% increase in revenue over the three year period.
