Founded in 1985, Walsh|Sheppard is a full-service advertising agency and marketing communications firm headquartered in Anchorage, Alaska, specializing in strategic branding. We serve a diverse group of clients in industries such as telecommunications, banking and finance, healthcare, retail, construction, engineering, entertainment, hospitality, and energy. We also serve several of the leading Alaska Native Corporations, government organizations, non-profits, and the political realm.
Led by agency founder and CEO Pat Walsh and her partner, Jack Sheppard, president and COO, we offer our clients a creative yet pragmatic approach to strategic and marketing problems. Informed by experience, yet unconstrained by convention, we combine the best of big agency knowledge with the fervor and originality of passionate and talented individuals.
A brand is to a company what personality is to an individual. We help companies break away from the competition by tapping into their DNA. With a focus on distinctive, descriptive, and aesthetic creative, we help our clients communicate their essence with logos, positioning statements, strategic messaging, and more.
Strategy separates aesthetic creative from effective creative. We approach each marketing and communications challenge with a comprehensive strategy, utilizing tactics that are known to resonate with your target audience. We implement strategies based on a deep situational understanding and data, resulting in persuasive and effective campaigns.
Don't believe the hype - television and radio are still unmatched at compelling an audience with powerful visuals and sound. Our in-house studio services allow us to produce timely and compelling media, and our esteemed relationships with Alaska media guarantee the most value for your campaigns. And when you really need your business in print, we produce creative that not only stands out on pages, but on key online applications too.
Your online presence is one of your most powerful tools. Using the latest research, our team will handle your online identity from start to finish - after we help you deliver on an engaging and interactive user experience, we'll measure whether your website and social media are achieving your brand and business goals.
Chevy trucks, vodka bottles, televisions...if it gets too close to Walsh|Sheppard's office, it'll leave with our designs all over it. We've brought home awards for some and decorated bar carts with others.
So kick off your Xtratufs, pour a Bloody Mary made with Smoked Salmon vodka from Alaska Distillery, and enjoy some of our wares.
