About

Big-agency smarts. Small-agency nice.

A proven process that’s been delivering results for over two decades, combined with a group of talented, experienced and incredibly nice people. What’s not to love about King?

We could go on and on about our process, what’s unique about it, and why it works so well. But for now, we’ll just let the results speak for themselves—over two decades of groundbreaking, successful work. And, thanks to our love for post-campaign analysis, the evidence to prove it.

Reaching people in Michigan every single day.

You may not realize it, but you see our work every day. Our clients are in nearly every industry, from governments and municipalities to healthcare, education, manufacturing, retail and more. Though our client portfolio is diverse, they all share one key characteristic: they want to move the needle, and we are relentless in our pursuit of their success.
