19 IDEAS is a New York State Woman-Owned Business that brings a creative approach to marketing and communications. It’s work with purpose. We were established in 2011 by Katie Krawczyk as a company of one, with the intent of working with like-minded clients who have a passion about their work and whose mission helps advance our community. Today, we’re doing just that as a full-service agency, offering creative solutions in the fields of marketing, public relations, design, and web and software development.
With inspiration and tireless determination,
we strive to unlock possibilities for our clients.
The value of values
As individuals we’re driven by a core set of values and beliefs. It’s what makes us who – and what – we are. 19 IDEAS is an expansion of those values, placing emphasis on collaboration, inclusion, innovation and community. Upholding these ensures a happy team – and happy clients.
We’re comprised of creators, visionaries and entrepreneurs fueled by the power of an idea (and a lot of coffee, if we’re being honest). We’re a collective of former freelancers, entrepreneurs, nonprofit servants, agency wonks, corporate mercenaries and government cogs. Now we’re here, assembled as one, doing what we love.
It’s true. Creativity and inspiration are often a product of your environment. It was with that in mind, along with a deep connection to our community, that we chose to set up our shop in the Essex Art Center on the west side of Buffalo. The space screams artistry, originality and imagination. It’s just a cool ass place to spend the day.
We’re asked a lot about the origin of our name. The truth is, there are a lot of reasons. No, not 19 reasons, but enough to tell a number of different stories.
Can you pick out the only reason that has no correlation to our name?
When we’re not hard at work, we’re hard at play. Ping pong tops the list for office recreation. And like our work, we take it very seriously.
