The strength of DVS, and what makes us unique, is our passionate perspective and people. We believe that Strategic Design + Innovation delivered by people with a passion is what makes a successful agency, not just a cool location or the latest equipment. Although we have those too!

Since 1993, starting out in 640 square feet of space in Wyoming, Michigan, we’ve grown exponentially in size, staff, and capabilities. Our successful evolution is the direct result of our ability to listen. Each stage of that evolution was the result of a client saying, “can you do this” or “we have this problem, can you help?” Our answer has always been yes, together we can do that.

Always evolving to satisfy your needs, DVS is a full-service Marketing & Advertising Agency with a strong focus on Strategic Design + Innovation. And a specialization in small & medium size organization’s communication needs

Our Purpose
To improve people’s lives through better communication and have fun while doing it.

To help organizations achieve their goals through better communication.

Brand Promise
We create compelling experiences tailored to connect you to your audience.

Have a Servant Attitude
We exist to improve other people's lives, and we accomplish our goals by first helping others accomplish theirs.

Go Above & Beyond
We don't leave well enough alone. We continually learn, share, innovate, and deliver above & beyond the norm.

Take Initiative
Nothing happens without someone stepping up and doing it. We are the doers who make things happen.

Act with Integrity
We are accountable and do what's right, even when it costs us. Reputation outweighs profit every time.

Be Adaptable
We embrace the ever-changing nature of our chosen business and are agile in our work. No two clients or projects are identical, so our approach, while structured, is ever adaptable.
