Buffalo 7 Team

Hello.
We’re buffalo 7.

We help the world’s biggest brands deliver next-level presentations.

That’s nice. Why?

Because ideas are beautiful, wild, and raw.

But ideas alone are not enough to change the world.

It’s only under the right conditions that they have the power to captivate the minds of those they meet.

We harness the chaotic energy of a raw idea, and transform how the world experiences it.

We’ve been
doing our thing for over ten years.

There was a time when Buffalo 7 was just an idealistic set of values and a dream to rid the world of boring presentations.

Settle in, this is our story.

We knew what we stood for before anything else. Before the first client. Before the first brief. Before the agency even had a name.

It all started with our values:

01

PRIDE

close
01
You’ve got to be proud of what you do. Otherwise, what’s the point? When we talk about our work, you can bet we’re going to be beaming.
02

EXPLORATION

close
02
Our curious minds take inspiration from everywhere, and we never recycle old ideas. We challenge each other to look at every possibility, always asking “What if there’s a better way?”.
03

POSITIVITY

close
03
We refuse to be limited by anything other than our own imaginations. And that’s an exciting environment to be in. If you didn’t think anyone could get hyped up about PowerPoint, you’re about to reassess some things.
04

GRIT

close
04
Climb that goddamn mountain. It is hard, and your calves will burn, but the view is so much better from up there.
05

CLARITY

close
05
We say exactly what we mean. We communicate openly with one another, and we’ll do the same with you.
06

RESPECT

close
06
We respect the hard work you’ve put into your brand before we met you, and we’ll show that respect in how we handle your project.
07

Family

close
07
Above all else, we do it together.

That gave us a number. But we wanted something more; something that represented the force of family. We settled on the mighty buffalo. Social, loyal, intelligent, yet wild and free to roam. With Buffalo 7, the strength is in the herd.

Once we had the name, the real work could begin.

Our services

This is us.

You should know what to expect if you’re going to invite Buffalo 7 to your dinner party.

We're

Rebellious.

We heard the world groan at the whisper of “PowerPoint”, and we built a brand around it.

In a sea of yes men, eagerly nodding in unison, we ask “What if we did things differently?”

What if you could start a revolution with PowerPoint?

When you think we’re going to zig, we zag. We’re live wires, bold, unpredictable. But if you knew what we were going to do, you’d do it yourself.

We thrive on producing the unexpected. But our talent never comes as a surprise to us. Whatever is thrown at us, we’ve got it under control, and this confidence comes across in our communications.

We’ll push your buttons, your limits, and our own limits, and then we’ll push play on the greatest presentation your audience has ever seen.

Change never came from playing it safe.

We're

Animated.

There is a buzz about Buffalo 7. Passion reverberates out of our studio, across airwaves and Zoom calls, through every piece of work we produce, into the veins of our clients, and their audiences, through the fingertips of social media followers and into the eyeballs of blog readers.

We don’t mince our words because no one has time to be hanging around. We’re brash, spirited, and caffeinated.

Today we’re playfully curious so that tomorrow we can create bigger, better ideas. We are the catalyst for our own innovation.

It might feel like too much fun to be considered work, but this youthful energy is what gets things done. People can’t help but get swept along our frequency.

And, let’s face it, our clients always enjoy the ride.

We're

Brazen.

We don’t do small talk, only big ideas. From the first conversation, all our cards are on the table. We get intimate with our clients. Perhaps a little too close for comfort. A little too honest. But you’ll soon feel like you’ve known us all your life.

Isn’t that the beauty of lasting relationships? We give you a dose of tough love every now and again, but you know we’ve got your back. No matter what. We’re supportive, dedicated to your success, and we’re forever cheering you on.

Don’t get it confused: the romance is still alive and well. We’re dreamers: starry-eyed and full of wonder. We see potential everywhere and we go for it.

We might push a little hard, but only because we know what’s possible, if you just take the leap.

Everything we are comes to life in our work and play.

WHAT’S OUR SECRET?

Lean in. A little closer. Let me whisper in your ear.
Our secret recipe is made of just three simple ingredients.

01

Discovery-led storytelling

Everything starts with you. We dive right in, immersing ourselves in your goals, challenges, dreams and roadblocks, getting under the skin of what really matters. Only then can we craft a visual story that will get you where you need to go.

02

Challenge Thinking

This is positive friction. We ask thought-provoking questions to dismantle concepts behind beliefs, identify blind spots before they’re aired in front of a live audience, and spark an explosion of ideas that may have otherwise never seen the light of day.

We’ll challenge what you think you know, and what we think we know. We’ll explore every possible route to get you to your desired destination, and then we’ll show you the best way.

03

Loving Relationships

What can we say? Buffalo 7 is just the relationship type. We want to get to know you, talk about your dreams and your LBB (Life Before Buffalo), and plan our futures together on the very first date. Before you know it, our toothbrush will be in your bathroom. We’re all in, baby.

It’s only by committing to long-term relationships that we can continue to apply challenge thinking to how you communicate. What worked for you last week might not work today. And the more we learn about you, the better your presentations will be.

It starts with you, and that’s how it continues, with a load of creative exploration sandwiched in the middle.

Show, don’t tell.

We’re not just saying all this because we like the sound of our own voice. We live every word, every day.

Nowhere is this more evident than within our leadership team. Each of them challenged with protecting and nurturing one of our uniques.
