Advertising campaigns are meant to get attention and drive business. Getting the right attention that drives business is very difficult. That is why it takes careful thinking, research and creative exploration by an experienced team. Not very many advertising agencies or marketing firms can do this consistently. We’re proud to develop ad campaigns and marketing designs that connect to audiences with humor and emotion. Whether you are a law firm or a manufacturer, a consumer or a business, we are all emotional at our core and respond to advertising designs that are relevant, authentic and most importantly... likable.

Flojos Logo

When Flojos (pronounced “flo-hos”) approached us to reinvigorate their brand we were enthusiastic to take them on as a client. They are the original So-Cal sandal company that became a household name during the 1970s and '80s. After losing market share for a while they were recently acquired by a Southern California company to bring them back to national and international popularity. Staying true to the original Flojos personality, the new brand highlights the Southern California surf culture and vacation vibe. As surfers ourselves, we're so happy to be a part of revitalizing this brand for today's generation.

Appealing to coffee roasters has been a labor of love. When Intercontinental Coffee Traders approached us to serve as a full extension of their business and take on all their marketing and advertising, we were happy to oblige. We were excited about working with ICT to help make a splash within the coffee wholesale industry. We created a new brand with loads of personality to show the true character of their culture and the coffee culture itself. Their dynamic new brand has raised eyebrows and caught the attention of coffee roasters around the country.

Our team at MAD is very particular about the brands we build and the brands we represent, so when Pink Haze told us they were only appealing to the female Cannabis consumer they really had our attention. Understanding that there was no well-known all-female Cannabis brand on the market, this gave us the liberty to set the standard. We created an elegant brand that would appeal to women that cared about quality and were willing to pay for it. Also, since there has been a stigma associated with women smoking Cannabis we wanted to tell the world that women are allowed to have fun and be proud of it too.

The hospitality industry has been automating their offerings to the point where it is difficult to have human interactions to make bookings and solve problems. So, when a company like Scuba Travel Ventures wants to promote themselves with a more personal, human approach, we said absolutely. As an international scuba tour company that plans dives and adventures around the world, we sought to match this dreamy, adventurous travel business with a brand that is bold, exciting, and dreamy itself.
