The MAD DifferenceOur Approach & ProcessOur Philosophy & ValuesMarkets We Serve
We’re Not Here To Be Average.
We Don’t Like Being Second Best At Anything—And It Shows.

When we take on a client, it is because we know we can elevate their business. We review their competitors and their position in the marketplace, and then determine whether we can help them reach their goals or not. If we can help them, we specify the areas we can help them with and the areas they may need added support. When we get to work, we move with precision to make an impact. We’re not always right, but we constantly audit our efforts to be effective.

Contact Us To Get Closer To Your Goals.

We Listen To Understand: Where are you coming from and where do you want to go? What means the most to you? What’s your why? What’s your quest? Who are you in the hearts and minds of your potential clients?

We Ask The Difficult Questions: What’s underserved or unserved in your industry? What are the biggest complaints? Can you address these and be an advocate for change? How can you be the voice of your industry?

We Get To Work: We outline your goals; evaluate your brand and online presence; we challenge you to higher standards; we show you how; we map out a plan of action based on your budget; then we drive business with memorable marketing and advertising.

Better Intentions Create Better Success.
Integrity Guides Us. Our Warmth Defines Us.

When you blend passion with talent and mix in a driving purpose to help businesses succeed… that is The M.A.D. Difference. Give us a challenge and hold us to a higher expectation. Ask us hard questions and expect the truth. Give us good and get back great. Give us ugly and get beauty that connects. Come in a stranger and become family. Welcome to the MAD family—where good vibes are alive.

At MAD Group, we pledge to relentlessly pursue the extraordinary; to adventurously challenge the limit of our capabilities; to visit distant perspectives and question them; to seek what you stand for and tell it to the world with conviction; to be your loyal ambassador, representing you with vigor, passion, and purpose; and to ethically serve you with the highest standards of devotion and transparency so your clients, and all whom you affect, will recognize the significance of your quest, and the legacy that you are so carefully building.

We’re Not Industry Specific.
If We Believe In You, And We Can Make A Difference…
That May Be Good Enough For Us.

Through the years we’ve worked with hundreds of companies that serve a multitude of markets. Whether working with business-to-business or business-to-consumer, each project brings its own set of challenges and rewards. As an advertising agency in San Diego we feel proud to have helped so many companies in so many industries.

  • MAD Group Are So Amazing At What They Do....
    "MAD Group are so amazing at what they do. They spent hours researching our company and our competition before we even began our full day workshop where they brainstormed with us on how to take our company marketing and brand appearance to the next level. They focused on the areas WE wanted to focus on, and delivered more than we could ever hope for. The final presentation was EXACTLY what we had envisioned our company to look like. We are so excited to implement all of the creative content MAD Group created for us. If you are questioning whether or not to make this investment for your company, I can personally say with experience now that MAD Group's marketing services will give your company its best chance at succeeding, if you are open to their ideas. "

  • Marketing Geniuses...
    "Marketing geniuses. My entire team spent the day with them brainstorming on who we are as a company, what makes us different, our strengths, weaknesses, etc...and they will use that info to create our branding machine. They are kind and personal, as well amazing in their field. Highly recommend them as your marketing and branding company."
    Kathy Christmas, Owner, Golden Property Management
  • Pure Professionalism, Amazing Creativity And Great Execution...
    "After prior attempts with other companies, countless broken promises, frustration, wasted time and lost money, we finally have the web site we’ve been looking for with no headaches in the process. Actually, it’s far better than we imagined! But then again we are not the experts in web design. The M.A.D. Group is. And thankfully for us, we chose them. They have a seasoned team of people who get the job done and make it easy to work with them. No hassles, no disappointments, no delays, just pure professionalism, amazing creativity and great execution. They delivered on all their promises. Their first design layout was perfect and exceeded all of our expectations; they nailed it. We now have a site that is a cut above the rest. We look forward to working with The M.A.D. Group to further develop our marketing strategy as their work in this area is equally impressive. Thank you M.A.D. Group!"

  • Refreshing And Inspiring...
    "Although we have not completed the branding process I wanted to let you know what an exceptional experience I have had thus far. From our first meeting in my office, to the first session at yours, to the challenge of naming my new brand, the MAD Group team has been professional, patient, informative, fun, personable, and has communicated clearly the entire time. This is not my normal experience with the people with whom I do business with. Your team is refreshing and inspiring. "
