About HypeLife Brands
A progressive brand development + marketing agency specializing in helping disruptive B2C startups & lifestyle brands effectively engage the Millennial generation.
What makes us different

The Voltron of independent brand agencies? Yeah, you could call us that. An "anti-agency", doing things a bit differently? Yeah, you could call us that too.

Established in 2001, HypeLife Brands is a progressive brand development + marketing agency specializing in helping entrepreneurs, startups, and lifestyle brands across the U.S. build, launch, and grow fundable brands tuned for the Millennial generation.

The team at HypeLife, led by Founder & CEO Curt Cuscino, has worked with clients both large and small over the years, including [adult swim], American Greetings, Epitaph Records, Creative Environments of Hollywood, and beyond, as well as lifestyle startups like PinkLion, GROM-IT, and more.

HypeLife's expertise in the arena of Millennial Marketing has garnered them recent multiple national radio features and speaking engagements, including a recent interview with NPR on "Millennials, Retail, and the Future In-Between". HypeLife's founder is also an advisor to startups & entrepreneurs at Cal State Fullerton's Irvine Incubator.

Overall Experience
I was drawn to HypeLife Brands due to their history of creating and developing brands that are relevant for the long-term. To be honest, I’ve had the idea in my head for HUDL Music since the first time I set foot in the studio to record a track, but bringing it to life was a challenge I knew I needed a specialized startup marketing agency for. During the early discussions with the HypeLife team about HUDL Music’s Vision, they quickly grasped the vision I’d honed over the years, and even gave ideas to elevate it on the spot, before I made any commitments to their agency. Their commitment to HUDL Music and my original vision never wavered, and they took it too a place that’s better than anything I thought I could create on my own via "bootstrapping". For that, and so many other reasons, I’m so excited about continuing our partnership with HypeLife and working to grow HUDL Music -- though a "startup" just getting lift off at the moment -- into a brand that stands the test of time.

Overall Experience
When I found HypeLife, I had an instant feeling of “This could be the agency for us” the moment I came across their website. Everything spoke to my company needs...where we're at now, and how we need to grow and evolve. From there, it was the initial two hour conversation with the Founder, Curt, that helped me decide to finally choose HypeLife as our team/agency-of-choice. His passion and knowledge to help brands and companies achieve sold me. The work in researching and developing a strategy for my company before I even signed the agreement was proof in the pudding for me!

Overall Experience
Their systematic approach and attention to detail made my job much easier. I always feel comfortable working with them. They've helped us create an impressive and modern brand + web presence that engages new clients and acts as a valuable resource center to our employees around the world. The rebranding process enabled us to synchronize branding efforts and invigorate our sales force with confidence about our company's image in the marketplace. Digital + offline media campaigns we created with their team have opened doors and introduced new media arenas to our customers & employees. Be comfortable stepping into a new relationship with HypeLife, and don't be afraid to let your thoughts and ideas flow freely. They'll quickly pick up your vibe and needs, and the collaboration will produce opportunities you have yet to even think about.

Overall Experience
As we embarked on building our startup from ground zero, engaging HypeLife from the beginning helped us not only in putting together both the backend and frontend of the technology side for GoodFetch, but also in building a strong, compelling brand identity. By engaging HypeLife for the full package, their team has delivered on both ends of what was needed, and all the details required in-between. I'm highly confident in recommending their team as well-qualified to do the same for other businesses and startups.

What did you like best?
The process was streamlined while somehow still very personalized. Once you go through the steps they've laid out and they present you with the final product, you suddenly realize that the idea you've had in your head is actually a brand with a unique story that your customers want to be a part of.
What did you like least?
Unfortunately, I don't have any dislikes to contribute to the review. No complaints here...
Overall Experience
HypeLife embraced our enthusiasm and listened to exactly what we wanted so they could focus our efforts where they needed to be – all while helping us realize the real purpose for doing what we do each day. It was something we could be proud of, and eventually inspired others to want to be part of our purpose and to help us acquire the same goal. These guys will take care of you. Anything worth doing takes effort, but these guys take as much of the effort out as possible while reducing stress by giving you knowledge about building and growing your brand that you didn't even realize you needed.
