JUST Media was founded in 1995 in London, England before opening its doors in San Francisco in 1996.
Today, we’ve moved into bigger spaces, opened new locations and added more staff, all in service of growth with purpose. We remain proudly independent while also serving global accounts.
Our heritage is technology marketing, but we don’t live in this box. Our success stems from expanding into diverse markets and handling campaigns domestically and internationally for leading brands. Our planning is more creative because it’s grounded in hard-won experience across these markets. And our approach is more global because we bring in media experts from the countries you’re running in so we can negotiate well, deliver quickly and have the benefit of being truly local.
This means that no matter which audience you need to reach, we can help you do it and do it successfully.
The real measure of leadership is who works for and with you. Case in point: we have employees who’ve been with us for five, even twelve years. We also have employees who left only to return. That, plus our great relationships with our clients, says more about how we run JUST Media than we ever could.
