About Stimulus

An Agency that Does So Much More

Built on Integrity. Driven By Success.

Our History

Founded in 2008, Stimulus advertising was created with the intention of bringing something different to Lynchburg. As the previous Brand Compliance manager for what is now known as Genworth, owner Lynn Kirby envisioned an agency that was not only honest but also able to provide the customer with the best advertising and marketing needs in the area.

Beginning the business under the name Axis Creative from 2001 to 2008, Lynn and his team helped many companies within the Bedford, Virginia and surrounding areas create lasting solutions to meet all of their business goals.

When Axis changed to Stimulus Advertising, it was more than just a name change. The business changed for the better, looking to help more people in more areas across the United States. With clients ranging from Ireland to Washington State, we have had the privilege of helping business worldwide with their web, marketing and advertising needs.

Within the past 5 years, we have been able to continue expanding the business. With over 300 websites launched, we are excited for what the future holds and hope that we can continue to serve not only Lynchburg, Virginia but the surrounding areas as well.

Our Experience Speaks for Itself!

With nearly 20 years in the business, we have served many local, regional, national and international clients. That's right, we said international! While we are a "Lynchburg-based" company, our reach goes way further. Our experience covers advertising and marketing functions for industries such as insurance and financial services, banks and credit unions, law firms, manufacturers, nuclear, government and economic development, retail, travel and tourism, communications, furniture, packaging and publishing .... just to name a few.
But enough talking, we would love to show you some of our work!
