Spike is a compact marketing company offering clients access to senior level strategists and creatives—we think (and often act) beyond the given task.
After a great run working as a copywriter and creative director for ad agencies in Ottawa, San Francisco, Reno and Las Vegas, Ken Millman moved to Vermont and started Sp!ke Advertising in 1998. In just a few years, Spike earned a reputation for producing arresting creative for an impressive range of clients that is on brand, on strategy, on time, and on budget. Spike made “pigs fly” for Northfield Savings Bank, positioned lawyers as “likable” for Langrock Sperry & Wool, and introduced the world to an “apple Pie-Chi” practitioner and other uniquely Vermont characters on behalf of the Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing—proving that the ad world is full of possibilities, especially in Vermont.
Today, Sp!ke is a nimble and powerful marketing company of one, and Ken and his team of freelancers solve communications problems and maximize marketing opportunities with a unique blend of marketing, branding and advertising services.
“Be different or don’t bother,” is Ken’s motto. Ken is a strategist, creative director, writer, producer and project manager who likes to add sparkle, daring and fun to a profession that by its nature is full of stress and pressure. He conducts branding workshops based on his BrandcensusSM program, coaches marketing departments on best practices , and formally speaks on all things marketing at conferences and meetings.
