At VIVO we adhere to a one-word philosophy:

Culture is what makes us all unique and culture is truly the way to have authentic human experiences.

Marketing is all about Culture. Period. It’s not about Race. It’s not about Diversity that’s skin deep. It’s really about Diversity of Thought.

Yes. It’s that simple.

VIVO has always lived this, even though Marketers of today are finally catching on. American Culture is a driving force globally and that culture is driven by what is considered African American Culture. It’s in the music, the food, the clothing, and even the films we as American’s market to the world.

Our purpose is not about more “likes” or jumping on the wave of the latest trend, but it’s about presenting the most authentic version of a brand to culture-sensitive audiences. Our individual experiences and different stories drive the work you see today and mold us together to create VIVO.
