    Working with Yellow Duck Marketing was a tremendous experience. They were highly recommended and I was well aware of their past work, but they exceeded my expectations with their organization, professionalism, creativity, and execution. They had a diverse set of offerings that provided us with a menu to choose from allowing for a complete overhaul of our marketing from web design to print materials and more. They were also extremely helpful (and patient!) when it came to requested alterations as well as changes in scope as we moved through the process. I would give Yellow Duck Marketing my highest recommendation!

    Yellow Duck was our guide through the process of rebranding from A to Z. From the initial call to our first in-person meeting, the Yellow Duck team intuitively took us through a strategic creative process. From internal organizational strategy to community input and stakeholder engagement and beyond, Yellow Duck created everything from our new name, logo design, letterhead and our newly developed website. Thanks to Yellow Duck, we were able to successfully launch our new name and brand to the community in a smooth and seamless way. We couldn’t have done it without them!

    We just wanted to send a heartfelt Thank You to Yellow Duck for all of your assistance, coordination, creativity and ideas over the last couple of months as we try to provide support to our Waverly merchants and community during this COVID crisis. Yellow Duck has been a pillar of tenant communication and support during this time and it is genuinely appreciated!  Yellow Duck has always been an excellent partner at Waverly – but during this particular point in time – your partnership has been extremely beneficial in keeping the community updated.  We could not have provided all of the support we have been able to provide to the Waverly merchants and surrounding community without your help. We just wanted to take a moment to say THANKS!

  • Yellow Duck really helped us bring the vision of our brand to life by creating branding elements that embody the mission, values and mood of byFiorenza. They developed a strategic plan and branding assets that made it easy for us to stay consistent with our branding and our message. We are able to share exact colors and fonts with companies when having signage or other materials made so that everything is consistent and clean! A big part of our brand focuses on streamlining the customer’s online buying experience on our website to become the “Carvana” of homebuilders. Yellow Duck helped us to hone and build a website that embraced our unique vision. Most importantly, it’s not a “we pay you to do this and you do it” arrangement – it’s a true collaboration, which we love!

  • Before we hired Yellow Duck Marketing our materials were outdated and unprofessional.  With their guidance and expertise, we now have materials that help educate,  inform and look fantastic! The staff at Yellow Duck are creative and very easy to work with on projects. We are excited to continue our relationship with them and create additional products in the future.

  • I have had the pleasure of working with Yellow Duck Marketing on two public engagement projects. The creativity shown in their deliverables and their ability to adapt in everchanging worlds is truly impressive.

  • Yellow Duck Marketing is a first-class boutique marketing firm with a team of very talented creative professionals. They are capable of working several projects simultaneously while always giving your their best work and making you feel like their only client.
    - Lili Curtis, Marketing Manager
  • The recognition we receive is due in large part to Yellow Duck Marketing. They have done great work for us and I recommend them if you ever need marketing support, especially considering all the real estate and community building work they do.
    - Chris Wannamaker, Former FreeMoreWest Chair
  • They worked closely with our company to establish what our needs were and designed a solution that was unique to us. I have worked with many agencies during my career and they are one of the first that I felt actually listened to what our needs were.

  • My company recently underwent a rebranding process. After meeting with many agencies we made the wise decision to partner with Yellow Duck Marketing. They were very thorough and ensured that every step of the process went smoothly.

    - Liz Patterson, Marketing Manager, Childress Klein
  • I absolutely loved working with the Yellow Duck team. They always had the most creative and fun ideas for our projects and their energy was contagious! They kept on top of every detail, made sure to communicate along the way, and stayed within our budget.

  • Yellow Duck provided us with an exceptional web solution that is user-friendly, modern and easily navigated. Not only did they deliver a unique design, they delivered it quickly without sacrificing quality.

    - Childress Klein
  • Their concepts lined up with exactly what we were looking for. As a multi-family management and development company, it proved to be beneficial that Julianne had experience in this industry and understood our overall goals for practicality for the website. Throughout the process, Laura and Angela were very responsive and willing to help with content and editing. The project was well-organized and we executed our schedule as projected. We are very happy with the final website and everyone from Yellow Duck Marketing continues to be extremely helpful after the project is completed.
