Ellin & Tucker is more than an ordinary certified public accounting (CPA) firm. They are a strategic partner, a counselor and an advocate. Ellin & Tucker remains by your side. Vitamin branded these attributes as “In The Room.” The In The Room campaign depicts the firm by the client’s side, delivering expert perspective for each moment, large or small.


Ellin & Tucker tapped Vitamin to create an ongoing advertising campaign backed by a fresh, differentiating message. We set out to create a series of ads tailored in a manner that resonated with each of Ellin & Tucker’s distinct industries of focus. The campaign, specifically targeting the Baltimore-Washington region, needed to be delivered with a message speaking directly to industry-specific decision makers.


Vitamin created the entertaining and relatable “In the Room” campaign featuring precocious children whose early forays into business were less than successful without the sound advice of Ellin & Tucker. Later in life, these same individuals were seen thriving once they had the firm as an ally. Vitamin designed a strong drive-to-web component featuring a microsite that brought the stories to life while working to capture email addresses for newsletter sign-ups.


We aligned this creative, episodic campaign to be adjacent to industry-specific content in business journals throughout the year to target local and regional leaders within the firm’s target markets. The campaign is unique, memorable and vastly different than the marketing of typical accounting firms, achieving Ellin & Tucker’s goal to distinguish themselves. The In the Room microsite has also increased the firm’s industry-specific email marketing lists for ongoing engagement.

Relatable Stories

From a young lawyer-to-be who defended his dog, to a young woman who gave herself an ill-advised haircut, the “In the Room” campaign captures an early propensity for business that almost anyone can relate to.

The In the Room microsite is the ultimate destination for each unique story and brings the children’s transformations to life in an even more experiential and immersive way.

A Concept with Legs

The “In the Room” campaign has been so successful that Ellin & Tucker is extending it throughout the next year to include additional concepts. They will be using it as the foundation for their messaging platform and upcoming website redesign.
