Almost a decade ago, I started collaborating with other Hispanic/Latino creatives and started Somos Agency.  The agency is a marketing firm whose mission is to help brands connect with Hispanic consumers. The agency has grown rapidly and continues to help corporate clients develop Hispanic and multicultural marketing communications. to reach diverse audiences. Our creative output includes TV, radio, print, and social media campaigns.
