About ity Advertising

What’s with the Name?

Well, we built our agency on the pillars of creativity, flexibility, and affordability because we believe that’s what businesses and organizations need from a marketing partner today. Taking the ending of these three words that we embrace, we call ourselves “ity”. It rhymes with “witty”, though we are never offended if someone refers to us as “i-t-y”.
