What is Marq-it Design's History?

Marq-it Design has been around since 1997 and has been through many phases and faces! I started Marq-it Design as an at home business for a way to work and stay home with my growing family. Coming from a corporate agency setting it was a breath of fresh air. After the first 5 years it had expanded so much, as well as my family, we needed to find other living quarters for Marq-it Design.


By 2005 it has grown into a full service, very productive marketing and design firm. My dream was growning and so was an unseen cancerous tumor. By the end of 2005 I was diognosed with stage 3 breast cancer. I was able to survive that but what the cancer took was my drive to move forward. I started to second guess what Marq-it Design meant, who I was helping, who I stood for and why I was still here.


From here on out the right partners were being placed in to my life to show me a new purpose and dreams. Downsizing did not mean losing. It meant gaining control of a dream again and fulfilling a passion of helping smaller businesses and entrepronours. Focus on developing relationships because relationships build business. So the Marq-it Design Creative Boutique Agency was birthed.


What in the world is a boutique agency?

So many people ask me this so it’s probably a good time and place to answer this often asked question.


Simply put, a boutique agency (like Marq-it Design) is a smaller creative agency.  We focus on developing marketing campaigns in a broader scope of building relationships and connections, not studying demographics or doing hardcore statistical and market analysis. Building relationships with our clients is a plus, but developing realationships between you, our clients and your clients is the goal. We are here to teach you to market and give you the tools and the coaching so a lot of it can be done on your own. We build and connect.
