I’ve had the pleasure of working closely with ADCo for the past three years and our company has worked with Don and his company for over 20. Don and his team help build our brands through creativity, great effort and purposeful tactics. We feel fortunate to be able to call them our partner and that is truly what they are – partners. They care as much about our business as they do theirs. You can’t get any better than that.

Don and his team have helped create a definitive look and feel for our brand. They have helped with everything from a full website redesign to marketing collateral to email templates. I’ve already recommended ADCo to others and will continue to do so. They are ingenuity experts.

ADCo and their team have been a tremendous creative team to work with over the years. From advertising to marketing to social media to retail packaging, Don and his staff have been a joy to work with. Their efforts have not only built our sales consistently over the past 15 years but they have also built our brand presence and we receive numerous compliments from customers and colleagues, who appreciatively ask, “Who did that for you?” and we’re always happy to say, “ADCo did!”
President/CEO, U.S. Restaurants Corp.
Don and the team at ADCo always make us look great with cutting edge design and insight into our markets. They take the time to understand our markets and create content that is appealing and gets results. We call it “ADCo creative genius”. The fact that ADCo stays on top of new trends in websites, advertising, and logo design makes us look fresh and relevant, all the time.
Owner/Account Manager, Solutions on Hold
ADCo most recently helped us design and launch our new web site. Don and his staff brought both creativity and professionalism to this process. We have had nothing but positive comments on the new web site design, layout and ease of use. I would personally recommend Don and his ADCo design team to anyone looking to design a new web site or if someone is just looking to freshen up their current web site. ADCo will get the job done on time and on budget.
Don and his team have provided creative collateral ideas for several B2B loyalty programs I have worked on at Carlson Rezidor hotels. They’re great at listening and understanding nuances of some complex initiatives, then do a great job of distilling down to key ideas and themes and providing copy and layouts in a fresh and appealing way. They’re a fun, flexible and professional team to collaborate with.

Don and his team are outstanding! They created a series of highly professional, user-friendly websites for our properties that portray our company in a professional manner, drive rental traffic and provide prospective and current tenants useful information. ADCo has been wonderful to work with from the upfront creative phase through to post-launch support. ADCo came highly recommended and still exceeded our expectations!
President, Times Ventures Corporation
Don and Todd at ADCo did a great job in designing and maintaining both of my websites! They were able to combine my ideas with their creativity in getting the job done. Don is also an awesome guitar player - Todd - not sure he plays the guitar but is a great guy anyway.
Owner, Dana Wheelock Photography
I have been a client of ADco for over six years. The service and attention to detail has been exemplary. The willingness to listen to our needs and create business solutions specific to my organization has been nothing less than extraordinary. The end products have achieve success far beyond my expectations. Responses to any questions or concerns have been immediate, decisive and effective.
I look forward to many more years as a client of ADco.

We worked with ADCo to develop brand identities for our retail stores at the MSP airport as well as our corporate company logo and website. Their overall capabilities from initial research to design are phenomenal. They also know how to create something beautiful and unique to us and at the same time functions very well.
Buyer at St. Croix Retail
Over the last several years, I have worked with ADCO on more than a dozen project spanning different companies, different brands, different objectives and different timetables – but one thing has always been the same – ADCO’s performance! The team has consistently assembled the right scope, asked the right questions, and approached each project as a fresh client – without letting me jump to conclusions like ‘it is same as last time but with different colors, right?’ Oh, and they also do what they say and say what they do. They communicate. More importantly, they care.
ADCo makes our small company look big! We run our business by the seat of our pants and ADCo always comes through when we need them!
Owner/Account Manager, Solutions on Hold
If what you want in your full-service advertising, Web, and graphic design provider is a real partnership that involves truly getting to know and understand your business and its unique challenges and opportunities, and then executing with great skill on the basis of that knowledge to provide you with everything you want and need to propel your business forward, then Don and the team at ADCo are just what you have been looking for. If what you prefer is bloated corporate bureaucracy, constant up-selling, and a revolving door of account managers who move on just as they are finally gaining a workable knowledge of your business, then by all means, go with one of the big agencies! I have worked with ADCo for a decade and have never once been disappointed in the quality of their work, the friendliness of their customer service, their overall professionalism and integrity, or any of the other things that are key to a great, mutually beneficial working relationship. When I need anything—from the most basic and simple marketing collateral to the most complex Web design imaginable, and everything in between—there is never a doubt as to who I will call. And the best part is, for 10 years there’s never been any doubt about who will call me back!
