Website Design and Development
We design “responsive” (desktop, laptop, tablet & mobile friendly) websites that build and reinforce our clients’ brands.
Sales Materials & Brochures
A simple brochure can tell a big story about your business. We believe a big story deserves a big idea, and developing that idea is our mission.
Brand Building & Logo Design
A company’s logo must portray the business, product or service in ways that connects with the audience — some serious, others playful. It all depends on your identity.
Trade Show & Promotional Materials
Trade shows are still one of the best channels for generating large numbers of high-quality leads. We believe the right trade show design and materials can set you apart in a crowd.
Online & Print Advertising
Many think of advertising as the king of driving new sales. To ensure that thought becomes reality, we develop ads that jump off the page and engage the right audience.
Direct Marketing Campaigns
Whether its email or print, we believe marketing “directly” to an audience has its advantages. For starters, it’s a good lead generation tactic.
We believe creativity and a solid understanding of an industry allows for good, effective marketing and advertising. That is how we’ve helped promote business in many industries – technology, medical, and real estate, to name a few.

Each time I see [the logo you designed for us] …I have to smile and say “I really like that logo!”

The People Behind the Ideas
Mike founded M/R Associates Inc. in 1973. Utilizing his background in graphics design, copywriting and print production, he built the agency to the successful family-owned and operated business it is today. The success of the agency was established on Mike’s focus on technology and the medical industry. He believed there would always be a need for technological advancements in any industry, so he made a conscious decision to build a tech-savvy client list.
Mike currently serves as former President, but continues to be actively involved in the decision making and creative process of the company.
