About


 

96 Octane is Progressive’s in-house agency. We live and breathe the brand.

Because we helped create it.

High-grade performance fuel isn’t just our name. It’s how we work. Our model reduces costs, produces better creative, and provides us with more control. And we do it in the most competitive category in marketing.

From small design shop to a full-service agency. We’ve become a destination for creatives of all disciplines. And our ideas ignite the brand that is now part of America’s zeitgeist.

 Welcome to the new agency model—in-house. Buckle up and see for yourself.
