Our Focus

Vaxt is an independently owned, full-service, lifescience and biotechnology marketing, advertising, PR and relationship agency in beautiful Madison, WI. We serve clients in the animal health and nutrition, human health and medical, medical device, pharmaceutical and agribusiness industries. Our name is derived from växt which is Swedish for growth or to grow which is perfect because our focus is on solving positioning and communications problems for upstarts and existing companies that need new life.

Our Culture

Our agency was founded on the idea that integrated marketing and advertising was more than about pretty pictures and cute slogans. Any agency can do that. We knew that if our work didn't increase our clients' brand awareness and bottom line then it was a waste of their time and money. If we didn’t listen to our clients and their customers we’d miss the point. If we weren’t nimble we’d lose the chance. So from day one our goal was to focus on doing just that–listening and delivering kickin' results. The bottom line is we work hard to make our clients look good and make more money.

Our Capabilities

To us full-service means whatever it takes to move your brand and bottom-line in the right direction–from planning to executing cool and smart creative deliverables to market development and everything in between. We’re growth oriented and we know what counts is pretty simple–looking good to your consumers and investors and making sure you're making more money. Our clients count on us because they know we get it. We know we have to be nimble and we have to be creative not only with content but with budgets. The bottom line is our clients know we will respond to their needs with a sense of urgency and do whatever it takes to ensure the successful completion of even the most difficult projects, on time and on budget.

Our Experience

The Vaxt team has been solving marketing, branding, advertising, public relations and training/education problems for global B2B and B2C clients for more years than we care to admit. This expertise–in competitors, challenges and emerging consumer needs – has enabled us to create nuanced identities and campaigns that resonate with audiences. Oh, and our experience also flattens out the learning curve so we can hit the ground running. That's something our clients love, and value.
Our goal, no matter what industry sector or size of client, is to to listen, learn and deliver solutions for growth. No matter who you are we want you to look good and make more money. At the end of the day isn't that what it's all about?
