Who we are.

Elkinson + Sloves, Inc. is a Farmington, CT based marketing firm founded in 1981 by Donna Elkinson Miller and Jay Sloves, with the belief good agencies don’t create good advertising, good clients do.

We help create ideas that matter—locally, nationally and globally—from business development for the Governor’s Office, to creating the world’s largest golf event for St Andrews Links Trust,  to electing a President…to helping a child in a wheelchair stand up for herself.

What we believe.

Our goal is to win hearts, not awards.

What’s our secret?  Make a promise. And keep it. Then make another. And keep that one, too.

We integrate traditional advertising services with strong grassroots marketing.

So don’t ever be surprised if we team up a rock band like Bon Jovi with insurance guys in gray flannel suits.

It’s how things get done.
