Ideabar: The Art of Marketing + the Science of Media

Back to blog

Welcome to Ideabar! We are an ultra-modern, totally unique boutique marketing and media agency housed within the Cox Media Group, one of the largest private media companies in the world.

At Ideabar, we have one simple, overriding philosophy that drives everything we do in marketing + media:

research + branding + creative + digital = storytelling that generates action

We believe that every organization, large or small, has a unique and interesting story to tell. At Ideabar, stories are our passion. In fact, stories are at the heart of our very own origin story. Once upon a time, our founders met with a few hundred media clients at a Cox Media Group newspaper and asked them to tell the stories of their organizations. During these in-depth exchanges, we heard fascinating organizational tales that each communicated in their own way a clear need for cogent and persuasive marketing + media ideas that could serve as catalysts for change. Enter Ideabar: a place where a handful of crazy-talented, data-driven, hyper-creative, digital experts who are fluent in every facet of media work together to tell powerful brand stories. The art of marketing + the science of media is the heart and soul of every story we tell at Ideabar.
