Improving the Human Condition

Safer cars, child obesity, distracted driving, children’s health, eye care, bone strength, underage drinking…

These are a few of the issues we’ve “advertised” on behalf of clients who want to make a difference. In this spirit, we know that advertising not only has the power to shape our society, but to actually improve it. At August, Lang & Husak, that’s why we’re in this business, and that’s what sends us home at night, feeling like we’ve helped something good happen.

Our clients run the gamut of industries and categories, yet they have one thing that connects them: they all want to effect positive social change – by doing the right things. This can include an organization’s core mission – and it can mean a “best practices” culture that simply makes a company a great place to work.

At August, Lang & Husak, it’s our privilege to help these groups make a noise in the marketplace, get famous, and succeed.
