Ideas Collide Celebrates 10 Years

On March 27th, our agency celebrated 10 successful years with patrons and influencers at the Hotel Valley Ho Skyline Rooftop. The evening was dedicated to our team and partnerships with clients, which ranged from Fortune 100 companies to local start-ups in a variety of industries. The most notable were high-tech, consumer packaged goods, travel, hospitality and residential and commercial real estate.

Ideas Collide was created in 2005 by Matthew Clyde, Chief Strategist and Founder. His philosophy “You can’t love your life if you don’t love your work” quickly became the foundation of this agency. Clyde’s dream of starting a marketing communications agency and creative studio became a reality, with the focus on putting team members first as they solved clients’ business challenges.

“I’m very proud to see our team reach this milestone,” Clyde said. “The secret that makes this agency continually succeed involves the passionate, entrepreneurial spirit of our team and it shows, in their work. We relentlessly pursue every opportunity, and all carry a desire to create amazing work.” When Ideas Collide first launched, it had a few select clients, which remain central to the agency roster today.

Ideas Collide just hired its 30th employee and plans on adding 6 additional team members. In addition to expanding the team, Ideas Collide is expanding our office space over the course of the next four months.
