Connecting your brand’s story with engaging audiences.

About us
Detour is a digital agency that leads brands to engage with their audiences.

Founded in 2009 and operated from Irvine, California and Mexico City.

We are a team of award-winning creatives who strive to produce the most results-oriented communication solutions.
Because of the constant evolution in technology, the challenges to reach audiences have evolved as well. This is why we believe it's of great importance to stay up to date and adaptable to all existing media platforms.

We are a digital agency although our business model merges the capabilities of a traditional ad agency, an interactive studio and a production company to confront each project with a broad vision of different forms of communication.
Detour is a certified B corporation, which means we use the power of our business to make a positive influence on our brand's intended audiences. We also take a leading role in creating awareness of social and environmental problems.

Honda Texas Nation Website & Banner Ads
The Honda dealerships from Texas needed a prominent presence in the web, and provide their customers with easy-to-use technology for them to have an ultimate car buying experience. Together with Honda's Hispanic Market Ad agency, Orci, we developed a set of banner advertisements that were strategically showed in websites visited by customers in the areas of Dallas, Fort-Worth and Houston.
The user could then search for a zip code in the banner ad and the website would automatically show the nearest dealerships.

A custom, super clean design and interactive animations create an entertaining user experience, all bundled together in a professional and innovative website.

McDonald's McGriddles Rich Media Banner Ads
These interactive and engaging rich media banner ads are part of the 3 sets of the 2012 Digital Campaign for McDonald's. A fun gameplay in a beautiful design, makes it incredible to believe that all fits in just one banner ad. Digital Campaign
When we found out that in Mexico narco trafficking had killed 35,000 people in only 3 years, we decided to do something about it. So we created this campaign to raise our voices and propose a radical solution. This campaign revolves around a website where people can unite and show their support to stop these crimes, by showing that we can come together more than people that have died. The campaign is supported by a Facebook Page and a Twitter account.
