St. Louis, MO – March 23, 2012 – Yank and Limey, a St. Louis-based strategic branding, design, and marketing firm, today celebrates three years in business. The agency opened its doors in 2009, in the middle of one of the worst recessions ever, to prosper with double digit growth in both revenues and profitability year over year.
The firm has served a wide range of industry sectors including life sciences, healthcare, construction, software, networking, and logistics. “It has been our dream to build a company where we love coming to work everyday, where there are no ‘Mondays’, and where we can sculpt a model for growth based on our position of providing outstanding marketing strategy, branding, and design that leaves clients overjoyed, not over budget,” commented Benjamin Franklin, president and creative director.
The company takes a business-minded approach to every project, benefitting from over 40 years of combined experience between the two principals, Ben Franklin and Paul Gassett, vice president of strategic marketing. Yank and Limey has earned several awards from the (AIGA) Professional Association for Design, formerly known as the American Institute of Graphic Arts, for projects ranging from branding to logo design to web site development.
“Whether it’s online or print, we understand that unless it achieves a specific goal for the client, we are not doing our job,” reported Gassett. Yank and Limey combines the experience of a Washington University MBA with the finely-honed skills of an award-winning London-trained creative director. “No other firm offers the process and business-first mentality that Yank and Limey brings to the table and that makes all the difference to the success of our clients,” he added.
Some of Yank and Limey’s clients include Shaughnessy Paper, Impact Strategies, Agilent Technologies, AB Sciex, Gray Design Group, COCA, Power Maintenance & Constructors, Dotworkz Systems, Predictive Technologies, Inc., City Garden Montessori School, and Sentrus Security.
