What is Hines Digital?

Thoughts from our Founder & CEO

Hello. My name’s Ian Patrick Hines. I’m the CEO at Hines Digital.

I got my start in politics in 2003, when at 17-years old I helped run Howard Dean’s “Generation Dean” digital effort. That campaign changed politics forever, and started my obsession with effective digital organizing.

In the thirteen years since I have changed a lot, and so has digital’s role in politics. There’s no doubt about it, now: digital matters. In fact, it’s often the difference maker in elections.

These days, it seems like everyone’s a “digital expert” with a list to rent or an app to sell. What’s more, as digital strategies become more integral to the success of traditional campaign teams, it’s increasingly important to have a digital team that can see the whole field.

Gimmicks and armchair punditry abound, but wisdom and experience are in short supply — and conservative campaigns & causes deserve better.

That’s why I founded Hines Digital: to build a permanent home for the talent and expertise that will power the next generation of conservative digital strategy.

The world of advocacy — for campaigns, causes, and even brands — is changing so quickly that most organizations can’t keep up. But we don’t have to keep up because we never slow down. For us, it’s always campaign season. We’re “wartime consiglieres,” and we take pride in integrating seamlessly with every team in an organization to make them more effective.

We’re not the biggest, or the most famous, digital agency on the block, but I truly believe we’re the best. Since 2013, we’ve helped clients in Australia, Canada, France, Ireland, Malta, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America to imagine and execute comprehensive digital strategies. We’d love to help you, as well. 

Whether you’re running for office, leading a movement, or organizing in your community, I hope you’ll consider working with us. I’m certain that we’ll be able to help you. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to email me at ian@hines.digital.

Thank you.
