The Carmichael Lynch Media team is a catalyst for collaboration and creativity.

A holistic approach

At Carmichael Lynch, we believe media is both a strategic and creative discipline at the agency.


Our approach to media begins with the creative brief. We guide all teams with a unifying higher-order brand idea to deliver a cohesive plan. We take an audience-first approach to media plans, which are platform-agnostic and optimized in real time. By connecting signals across platforms and mirroring consumer behavior, we streamline the customer journey.


Our industry-leading collaborative approach to brand activations earns significant attention and enviable results. Additionally, we leverage the power of IPG’s MAGNA to access industry-best research and media rates, giving us a competitive edge.

An omnichannel heavyweight, minus the extra weight.

Standing apart in the industry

Our interconnected approach leads to first-to-market activations that not only capture our audiences’ attention but drive real business outcomes. We’re proud to have won a broad spectrum of awards for our media creativity and effectiveness.
