WE ARE IN THE BUSINESS OF SMALL BUSINESSES.

We’re Paul Bonnell Creative Studio. A veteran-owned, boutique brand and marketing studio in the Midwest. We’re here to give small businesses the brand attention and design they deserve. Because when your business succeeds, everyone’s world gets a bit better.

OUR FOUNDER

HOW WE GET THERE

We get it. Some advertising partners can feel like they’re selling snake oil. And to be honest, some are. We’re not one of those. Our approach is built on simplicity, transparency, and honesty.

WE STARTED 6+ YEARS AGO ON A MISSION TO SERVE SMALL BUSINESSES.

After working with global brands and large agencies, we realized the small business market is entirely underserved and owners are often left with limited options.

Option one: Large agencies that won’t listen and charge an arm and a leg.

 

Option two: Owners are left to manage it all themselves on top of everything else their business needs. And as a small business ourselves, we know that’s just not realistic. 

That’s where we come in. We bring large agency experience with a small business attention to detail and dedication. We truly want to become your partner in marketing that you can trust to tell your authentic story.

LISTEN

It starts by listening to you. You know your brand and business goals better than anyone. We want to tap into your knowledge, understand where you’re looking to go, and what truly makes your business stand out.

GATHER

We head to the market to get information. Whether to get insight from your customers, team, or competition, we do our own research to put together the full picture.

DEFINE

From there, we distill insights into a clear path forward to reflect your purpose and company future. Together, we align on your future journey.

TRANSFORM

We take our insights and bring them to life through storytelling and brand identity.

In anything we do, we want to have an understanding of success and what needs to be shifted to continue improving your brand and marketing.
