(what our clients say)

brainblaze-kittens

When it comes right down to it, we’ve noticed that many advertising agencies and design firms are more concerned with their Egos (yes, capitalized) than they are with their clients’ success. Creating wacky ads solely for the purpose of impressing another Creative Director across town is not the business we’re in.


Our success is measured right here, by our happy, successful clients. Hopefully our work speaks for itself, but our clients speak to us louder than anything…

 

David Sugarman – Senior Management Sales & Marketing
“Patrick is one of the most talented creative directors I have had the pleasure of working with. His cross-disciplinary skill set was a perfect match for our project and I would not hesitate in utilizing his services again.”

 

Robert I. Goldbaum – Chief Strategy Officer & Founder, Financial Interactive, Inc.
“I highly recommend Patrick Yore for any advertising, design or marketing efforts you desire. He brings an unmatched level of creativity, style and professional manner to every project he undertakes. I first worked with Pat in 1995 while I was Operations Manager of Robertson Stephens Investment Management.  We had replaced a major ad agency with a more hands on, boutique agency, Rd/Fox. Pat was the driving creative force that took a challenging project with a demanding audience and successfully altered internal perceptions of what our marketing messages would include. A few years later as I was starting my current company, I hired Mr. Yore to create our logo and corporate identity on a contract basis. Thoroughly pleased with the results, we then hired him as our permanent Creative Director/Marketing Specialist. Pat not only tackled the creative roles with confidence but, in our start-up environment, also handled all logistical matters with printers, publications, and even trade shows.  Because of this it is no exaggeration that he has been integral to the success of my company, Financial Interactive, Inc.”

 

Jeffrey Lo – Chief Operating Officer at The Graphic Source
“Pat has surprised and impressed us around every corner. We originally sought him out to refresh our website but quickly found that he is a man of many talents. Fast forward 3 months and add to that list logo creation, email and social media marketing and SEO. From high-level, strategic support to technical execution of creative projects, Pat can do it all!”

 

Jay Sherlock – Principal Architect, Studio J Architecture
“Pat helped with our website (www.studioj-arch.com). He was so easy to work with, listened to our needs and created a beautiful website we are really proud to show. Thanks Pat – I will highly recommend you to friends and family.”

 

Mark Kelm – Director, Research and Development at Constellations Brands
“I’ve known Patrick well over 25 years. His creativity and passion for his craft are unrivaled. I recall an early project of his where he cleverly produced a very eye-catching 3-dimensional pop-up advertisement for a popular soft drink. I was floored. Over the years Patrick has refined his art and approach to advertising spanning the gamut of edgy to sophisticated. Consider him your preeminent choice.”

 

Thomas Wright – President at TRW Supply Chain Services LLC
Patrick and his team did an outstanding job in designing and launching my website. I have know Patrick for years and he is one of the most talented and creative individual I know.

 

Roccy DeFrancesco, CWPP, CAPP, CMP – Founder : The Wealth Preservation Institute

Tom Neubauer – Traffic PR & Marketing
“Patrick Yore was incredible to work with, he and I comprised our in-house Creative Department for one of the largest entertainment (restaurant/bar/nightclub) companies in the Midwest, Ala Carte Entertainment. Patrick has unlimited creativity and passion for his work, along with regimented organizational skills. He also was able to create impactful design across a very wide range of demographic targets and themes.”

 

Bruce Crock – Product Manager at Autodesk
“I originally heard about BrainBlaze a few years ago from one of their clients. After hearing the glowing description of that project, I reviewed their portfolio, and have since recommended Brain Blaze to friends and business partners. In every case, Brain Blaze made dramatic and unexpected improvements in design aesthetic and marketing effectiveness. If you are looking for professional results and superb creativity, talk to Pat at BrainBlaze.”

“Patrick developed two websites for me and they were perfect! His creativity is appreciated as is his ability to find efficient solutions. Patrick analyses our needs methodically and impements his work quickly. He is a true customer-centric professional.”

 

Jack Boeger – SupercleanWeb.com
“When it comes to logo design and branding, Pat Yore is nothing short of a genius. He begins by really listening and finding the essence of your company. Next, he comes of with a huge array of choices that he has created just for you. The hard part is throwing away so much excellent work in order to choose a direction. And on down the road you go… until you are left with simply the best logo you will ever get anywhere. His stuff is built to last. Whenever I need a logo for myself or a client, I go to Pat Yore.”

He is an absolute pleasure to work with, and is one of the most positive people I have ever had the joy of working next to.

Kimberly Joe – Dork of all trades
“I met Patrick at my first ad agency job while working as a receptionist. Patrick, although deluged with work he always made an effort to show me how advertising is made. He helped me see the business of advertising from the creative side and was always happy to share his creative process with me. He is tireless, without ego and very dedicated to finding the intersection of business and art. In addition, I admire Patrick’s artistic talent and ability to translate emotions and ideas into visuals. His design aesthetic is top-notch and his vision is remarkable.”

 

Rd/FOX Advertising
“Mr. Yore is a very talented creative person. However, Patrick possess skills that extend considerably beyond “creative”. For instance, Patrick has a firm grasp of the strategic process – he is quite strategic in his own right. This gives Pat the edge when the success of a communication project demands targeted, strategic creative. Additionally, Pat is a strong leader with compassionate, yet uncompromising team building skills. In my experience, all who have worked with, or for Pat, have always been solidly in his corner. This combined with his technical savvy and application mastery make Patrick Yore a first consideration for your communication needs.”

Derrick B. Van Der Maden – President, SkipStone Media
“Patrick Yore is one of the most remarkable (designers, graphic artists, creative directors) I have ever had the privilege of working with. He is intuitive, passionate and has the innate ability to develop creative and strategic campaigns worthy of industry awards. Furthermore, his well respected designs have led to numerous successful advertising programs. I have had the pleasure of working with Patrick on campaigns such as Adams Golf, Oakland Raiders and Red Orb Entertainment. Patrick met each project with enthusiasm and a fresh perspective. As a result, the client’s goals were exceeded for their respective objectives. Considered the most creative person in the company, Patrick was often called upon to lead design teams and create unique and memorable advertising campaigns to assist in the attainment of new business. With each assignment, his team surpassed all expectations, leading to the agency’s acquisition of several new clients. As a result, the company grew at a rapid rate expanding the number of employees and office space. As a communicator, Patrick excels. One of the many aspects of his processes is to keep a constant and open line of communication with all team members. He insists that the team be informed at every stage of a project because of the critical nature to the success of the client’s program. Lack of communication means mistakes and Patrick strives for zero defects. Someone who is truly passionate about their profession usually goes beyond the typical day-to-day requirements. Patrick surpasses this definition. On several occasions, he would create designs in his spare time for companies he hoped to work with in the future. These designs quickly became motivational tools for the sales team to win new business. I respect Patrick as a leader, designer, strategic thinker and a colleague, as do many of his associates. He will be an asset to any company intelligent enough to bring him aboard.”

Microsoft
“I was frankly astounded by the the speed and more importantly the quality within our tight timeframe. I was expecting to have to go back and forth on the project a few times before presenting to the client but Brainblaze “got it” and delivered client ready creative that needed very little tweaking. We had a huge project due for a Fortune 500 company on an impossible deadline. We needed a creative partner that understood both a tight timeline, corporate branding guides and could basically manage the project themselves in a turnkey fashion. Brainblaze overachieved in all those regards. Great job.”
