Who We Are

We are an eclectic group of journeymen and shiny new pennies, yet our passions extend far beyond the advertising industry. We’re musicians, surf bums and occasional beer snobs. We’re junkies for adventure and explorers of the unknown. We laugh at ourselves and at each other. Thick-skinned and warm-hearted, most of all, we’re a family with a shared goal of helping our clients build their brands and reminding them to have fun while doing so.

Headquartered in Orlando, we have account service satellites in Memphis, Los Angeles, and Tallahassee. We also have five strategic partners located in Atlanta, Dallas, Oklahoma City, Boston, and Jackson, Mississippi. So, when you join the evok team, you’re connecting with a network of creative professionals who share ideas, best practices, and even team members. We’ve had team members migrate from one office to the next for client opportunities or just changes of scenery—a great opportunity for our team members as they progress in their careers.

What you can expect in a day in the life of an evoker

Much of your experience at evok will be shaped by your personality, professional strengths and, most importantly, the way you approach both challenges and opportunities. In an industry that’s ever-evolving, the ability to seamlessly adapt and develop your abilities to both influence and lead are at the core of every evoker.

We encourage everyone to collaborate and make the most of our fluid work environment. On any given day, you’ll find evokers on the Wi-Fi-enabled third-floor rooftop deck, engaging in an impromptu creative session over a game of ping pong, or hosting a client in one of our conference rooms for a strategy session. Mix, mingle and coexist in an environment that’s set in “caves and commons,” where an emphasis is put on coming out of those caves and sharing ideas with your fellow team members.

This is a great work environment, but it’s also work—we stress about ROI for our clients—but it’s our passion. We love what we do, and we’re always on the lookout for those who will not only fit in, but also stand out.
