no bullshit, nexus 6 is the best place i have ever worked!

Being close to 50 years old while tallying up residences in 7 different states and three other countries besides the US, you can imagine I’ve worked at quite a few different places. Here in Des Moines specifically, I’ve led creative efforts at a couple of different tv stations and steered strategy at other marketing and advertising agencies.  Since landing as business partners with one of the most creative folks I know, Dave Makin, at Nexus 6, we’ve developed the No Bullshit Guarantee (NBG). 

We tell all of our prospects and partners to be different and you can bet that we practice what we preach! I mean, if you haven’t checked out our website, I’m quite certain that you’ll come away knowing that we’re different from the other folks. We live and breathe our brand that’s based around a line of androids in the classic Sci-Fi movie, Blade Runner. The Nexus Replicants (the film’s version of androids) began as the model Nexus 1 and ultimately ended with the Nexus 6. The Nexus 6 models – were virtually identical to a human being. Marketed as being “more human than human,” the Nexus-6 had superior strength, agility, a wider temperature range tolerance, and variable intelligence. That’s in essence what we are – the Des Moines advertising agency where humanity and technology meet.

There’s so much more to write and show off about working here and I plan on doing that over the next couple of months. Next time around, I’ll dive more into our NBG and our value-based pricing, where you pay for work and results… and not for that brand new building with bouncy chairs, candy walls, and a new pool table that seems to be all the rave nowadays in our industry. (We go with cheap Nerf guns, instead.) 

At the end of the day, we are all Nexus 6… a group of individuals who are valued for their own ‘individual’ opinions, where everyone can be themselves and not be bogged down by controlling business owners. 

We are dedicated to our clients… and their results. 

We are different… and strategic… and uber creative.

We are “us”.

And, we’d love to get to know you more!

Breaking out of the comfort “Bubble”

Like death and taxes (or if you ask Thanos, he will tell you that he is), change is inevitable. We can’t control it, but we can control how we react to it. Sometimes it’s healthy to embrace new challenges even if they are difficult….and fearful.

The Gap of Disappointment

The Gap of Disappointment As an agency, our mission is to see the success in everything we do, and just like everyone else, love when that happens relatively quickly. Although, we still embrace our no BS guarantee and advise that not everything happens overnight.  It’s been 5 years since I started this thing on nothing more than an 11” refurbished

What a Cross Dresser Taught Me

Several years ago, a coworker suggested that we go check out the drag scene that night. Having never seen illegal street racing myself at the time, I was intrigued and agreed to pick him up later that evening. Later, when he came out of his house, it was to my surprise that he was wearing a dress and a thick

A computer.

But, no seriously, we use Wordpress. It’s widely used, open source, and easy to host anywhere if you ever decide you hate us.

We work with companies from all industries that are all sizes. Our requirements for working together is simple. We don’t hate each other and we believe that we can provide real results.

Yes we do. From capturing the footage to editing it into its final form, all our work is done here.

Hell yes you do. We get it, some companies will write you a blog but claim that they own the content as a way to retain your business, that’s bullshit and we don’t play that game. It’s yours to keep once you’ve paid for it.

Firstly, there is no cost to meet with us and talk about what we can do for you. Second, each and every quote is custom. We don’t prepackage anything. We can however say that our base rate is $100/hr, which is a hell of a lot lower than most you will find out there.

Apart from having implications in the movie Blade Runner (where the company gets its name) we ourselves are somewhat of a unicorn in the fact that we offer a fair price for top tier services. We pretty humble, regardless of how many awards we’ve won.
