This Digital Agency Went From a Spare Bedroom to Winning Awards

Grow’s major clients include Google, HBO and Rdio


Who Drew Ungvarsky, owner and creative director

What Digital agency

Where Norfolk, Va.

Ten years ago, a computer science major named Drew Ungvarsky who loved designing and developing started Grow in the spare bedroom of his Norfolk, Va., home. “Frankly, I never had any intention to create a company,” said Ungvarsky, Grow’s owner and creative director, “let alone to have the company be what it is today.” The digital agency now boasts a full-time staff of 30, working with such clients as BFGoodrich, Google and Rdio. Grow collaborated with Google’s Art, Copy & Code project’s Burberry Kisses, which won a digital Grand Clio Image award. The shop also collaborated with Google and Deutsch LA on VW’s “SmileDrive” campaign. Ungvarsky’s ambitions remain simple. So what comes next? “Continue looking for partners that want to do [digital] work that is industry defining.”
