Branding The Queen City: The Advertising Geniuses Behind Cincinnati's Success
Take one part photography studio, two parts ad agency gurus; mix together. That’s the formula comprising Marsh Brand Partners, the Cincinnati based advertising agency whose focus on food and photography has made them a Queen City go-to for more than 60 years.
“We have relationships with clients that extends beyond 20 years,” says James Browning Jr., chief strategy and creative officer. “For life is our brand promise and we bring that to everything we do.”
Marsh Brands really does everything. Although the firm has photography roots, once managing partners Pete Costanzo and Ken Neiheisel took over, the agency began successfully offering full service marketing to companies.
As self-proclaimed foodies, the agency thrives in serving food and restaurants brands such as John Morrell Food Group and Captain Morgan.
“We move the dial for our clients,” says Costanzo. “We find ways to save them money while approaching the problem with a creative solution. We out-think rather than out-spend.”
Doing so, Costanzo adds, enables the agency to be deeply involved with brands and creating customer connections for life.
“We help shape the way customers look at menus and how they interact with the brand,” says Costanzo.
