We create deep emotional connections, balancing ever-changing technology and unchanging humanity. Grok, which means to communicate with deep empathy and understand profoundly or intuitively, is a full-service, integrated agency founded by advertising veterans Julie Bauer, Tod Seisser and Steve Landsberg.
Located in NYC’s Flatiron District, Grok consists of over 20 talented “Grok stars” and a network of smart, nimble and proven independent partner companies.
