Our Manifesto


We are one. One family. One soul. We call ourselves a village. A village made up of many voices, many points of view, and many kinds of clients.


This diversity is what bonds us. And makes us special. We believe it’s quite unexpected. And so are we. We are curious. Authentic. And quite ingenious, in fact.


From health to tech our work is fresh. Shockingly fresh. At the same time surprisingly human. Emotional, engaging, and aspiring. Just like us.

Always thinking. Always dreaming.


Let’s create together. And win together.

At Havas San Francisco.

Creative Business Idea
The CBI is the foundation of our success in building great businesses. It generates differentiating ideas by bringing together strategic planners and clients in the most imaginative development process.
Prosumers are leading-edge consumers making and breaking markets today. To understand a category, you have to follow these influencers very closely. Our Prosumer database of 55,000 people around the world allows us to predict future attitudes and trends.
This tool enables the crucial analysis of communication conventions. The in-depth study of visual and verbal codes allows us to identify emerging trends and fresh ways of looking at each category.
Brand Momentum
We track each brand’s position in the marketplace by measuring its traction against that of its competitor's. As in political polling, we can accurately measure brand consideration, or how consumers are likely to vote.
