Our name is inspired by the simplest element in the universe:
hydrogen. One proton, one electron, the lightest of all elements.
Yet also the most powerful—hydrogen powers the sun.
Using Hydrogen’s 3C’s we dive deep into the category, customer and company. That leads to a key takeaway that is ownable, relevant and creatively differentiated.

We work with you to map out and deploy paid, earned and owned media channels along the path to purchase.
Today, we harness that power to help our roster of local, regional and international advertising clients succeed. How? By leveraging a proven yet simple three-step plan:
How do we make the complex look so simple? By working together to solve meaty marketing problems
that leverage paid, earned and owned platforms. Our arsenal includes:
Meet Tom. He’s a salty dog. Resident philosopher. Deep thinker. And just an all-around good guy.
This here is Mary. Former Big Agency Brat. Current island hippie. Can edit anything down to three words.
Partner, Executive Creative Director
Partner, Creative Director
Meet Mike. He’s a stickler for the craft of good design. In fact, some say he puts the “b” in subtle.
Partner, Director: Accounts and Strategy
Here’s Hillary. She’s super smart. And can talk super fast. We think it’s just her mouth trying to keep up with her brain.
Meet Brenda. Public relations sage. Perfect pancake maker. Resident Energizer Bunny. Seriously, this woman keeps going and going and going.
VP, Strategic Communications
and Public Relations
Queen of media. Pitbull of negotiations. This is Lauren. Her mom is British, but she doesn’t even try to fake an accent.
Michael Van Schepen
Meet Michael. He’s crazy tall. He’s a really good account guy, but we still can’t understand why he isn’t playing professional basketball in Europe.
Say hello to Brian. Not only does he lead our digital design and production practice, he takes a lot of pictures. Which in a way makes him the Ansel Adams of Hydrogen.
Born in Tokyo. Can’t speak Japanese. But can talk about Instagram for hours.
Meet our project manager, Jenn. She takes care of the details. And the big picture. So kind of everything.
Lori's from Hollywood. But she never throws shade. How many numbers gurus can you say that about?
This is Pirkko. She was named after a Finnish exchange student. She smiles like this all of the time. Really.
This is Rick. He’s really cool. He swims. And he has been called the “Bing Crosby of advertising.”
