Motivating consumers to act

With roots firmly planted in general advertising and direct marketing, CBMdesign has more than 30 years of experience talking with consumers, gathering insight into how they think, and then creating award-winning solutions that motivate them to act.

We’ve built our reputation delivering accountable, actionable advertising for consumer and business-to-business applications. From launching new brands and building customer loyalty, to developing customized channel programs, our ability to build the right message coupled with our expert execution is what sets us apart from the competition. Our capabilities include corporate identity and brand development, advertising campaigns, brochures, collateral, direct mail, catalogs and digital media.

We are a dynamic agency and offer an unmatched level of personal service to each client. Because of our unique structure, we can be as big or as small as we need to be and adapt our services just as quickly as your needs change. Our flexible structure allows us to minimize overhead, which saves you money when compared to larger agencies.

Regardless of which services best meet your business needs, we are always focused on two things: your current customers and your future customers. CBMdesign has the experience, knowledge and dedication to develop creative solutions that will meet or exceed your specific business goals.


Get ahead of your competition and stay there

CBMdesign provides the perfect combination of strategic thinking, message development, copywriting and graphic services, plus print production management to help your business get ahead of the competition — and stay there. Our veteran writers are unbeatable when it comes to crafting a distinct and compelling message that will engage the target audience. Alternatively, if you already have copy for a job, we can copy-edit for punctuation, grammar and consistent style, so your deliverables don’t just look good, they sound good and make sense as well.

Since no two jobs are alike, we quote each job separately. Our standard development rate is $100 per hour. We can also work within a flat-fee or retainer structure as well. Please call or email us and we will be happy to provide you with a detailed estimate.
