Working with Lisa and her team has been a pleasure. They led us through the rebranding process with ease, and we are delighted with the results.
Lisa and her super team at Paris Marketing has a extraordinary knack of understanding her clients brand with only needing a small amount of information. Her product isn't about the everyday; it is about pushing you to look beyond what most designers are thinking. They keep their promises in delivering creative and timely designs while leading her clients to present a sophisticated and honest face to the market.
Paris Marketing created and implemented a custom fit online and social media marketing plan for my law firm. They spent a lot of time learning about me and my practice, so I came away with a brand identity that fits my practice beautifully. They also provide me with the ongoing support I need to maintain my plan, I think they are amazing.
As a new non-profit organization looking to get our message and brand off the ground, we looked to Lisa and her team. Their institutional knowledge and great ideas proved to be invaluable. Lisa took the time to listen to what our needs and vision was and then put together a plan of attack. We are confident that with her guidance, energy, and enthusiasm, we will exceed our fundraising goals and raise awareness of lung cancer, a devastating disease which is often misunderstood and whose cure research is sorely underfunded.
Paris Marketing is great to work with. Good people and amazing service. We needed a new brand identity as well as a website and the designs exceeded our expectations.
At Paris you won’t find us hiding in our offices, in fact, we don’t have offices. We prefer to work collaboratively in our open concept loft. You can even catch us hanging out after work, pub trivia anyone? We believe teams who enjoy working and playing together consistently outperform those who don't. That makes our days better and our clients happier. In marketing vernacular they call that a value differentiation. At Paris, we call it our secret weapon.
