We start with what truly matters.

Our focus: people, not targets

AHA is a creative agency that brings brands and people together. For more than 20 years, we’ve helped our clients earn their way into people’s lives. We’re one of the largest agencies in the Portland area, with a team of 50 people.

Our approach is designed to make sure your audience has a meaningful experience with your brand every time you connect. That starts with getting to know them. What motivates them? What inspires them? How do they make decisions? At AHA, those questions underpin everything we do and create the launch pad for great creative work.

The answers to those questions help us craft a moment—or a series of moments along the customer journey—tailored for the people you’re trying to reach.

And that’s not only more effective than traditional marketing tactics. It’s the key to creating a real and lasting connection with the people who matter most to your business.

We have deep expertise serving clients in:

  • Technology
  • Financial services
  • Health care
  • Corporate responsibility and sustainability
