Buongiorno! We’re Allie and Lyndsay—only Allie is Italian, but Lyndsay loves pasta so, just go with it. Allie comes from the strategy + startup world and Lyndsay hails from the comedy + copywriting world, but we both share an addictive love for ballsy, offbeat, eye-catching, branding.
AND THEN one blistery Chicago day, we both woke up complaining about what a shame it was that so few brands used fun as a sales tactic. We had each spent years helping businesses stand out strategically and creatively and time after time our favorite weapon was humor. It became embarrassingly obvious that we should stop harping and create an agency that helped people see the power of humor and the potency of fun as marketing tools. Thus, by our powers combined, Obedient Agency was born. When we’re not creating murals, branding cups, or whipping up art ad-stillations, we’re trying to keep up with our dogs, Mokey and Puffin, and co-hosting our erotic Harry Potter fanfic podcast (The Potterotica Podcast). Yes, you read that right. We stand by the truth that fun sells and that if you can make people laugh, you can make them do anything. AND WE MEAN ANYTHING.
