Nice to meet you. We’re Linden.

Here at Linden we build partnerships on trust, honesty hard work

We are adaptive

We’ve been in business since 1996 – and in 20+ years we’ve learned a lot. 

One of our most important lessons has been about people: we’ve learned that it takes a certain type of person to put in the time and do things right, making both our clients and our business successful. People who live creatively every day, whose passion is authentic, who live for strategy and inventive execution, and who have the ability and the compassion to step into our clients’ shoes and be present in our clients’ goals are our kind of people. That’s who we have on the Linden Marketing team.

The Linden team excels at helping organizations like yours demonstrate your value through a variety of thoughtful, strategic marketing approaches. It starts with relationships – making connections and establishing trust in order to become genuine advocates for you and your objectives. Then we begin to build the marketing strategies, materials and tools that will tell your story and help you meet your goals.

Let’s do this together

Successful partnership involves everyone.

Everyone involved makes contributions, shares accountability and benefits from our combined efforts.

It’s important for you and your team to understand the level of accountability and involvement that each of us must demonstrate in order to be successful. The Linden team will be responsible for creating, organizing and launching projects, but to do so on time and in order to remain on budget, we’ll rely on your team to supply materials, information or approval at key milestones.

Our promise

By partnering with Linden,
you can expect:



We’ll take everything we learn about your company and industry — such as your history and personality, your product and services attributes, target audience profiles, consumer market share, market trends and competitors, etc. — and apply it to our marketing strategies, which will help position you for success in planning and execution stages.



Our staff has deep roots in our region and connections in many industries. We have the ability to naturally leverage long–held, personal and professional relationships to secure the best possible pricing options, earned media opportunities and publicity for your organization.



Because your company is unique, your marketing plan — and your results — will be one-of-a-kind. We won’t make unrealistic promises about what’s possible through marketing, but we will help you set and implement measurable, real-world goals that align your organization with its short- and long-range objectives. Although we can’t guarantee a certain rate of return, every marketing investment you make with Linden is designed to deliver a benefit.



We always enter a client relationship with the intent of forming a long-term partnership. Our understanding of your company, its brand and your marketing history will grow in proportion to the duration of our relationship. The more we come to understand you and your needs, your audience and their needs, the more successful our combined efforts can be.


In order to be successful, we’ll depend on your:


We’re creatives.

Our team is full of ideas — some will be similar to yours, while others may be outside your comfort zone. We encourage you to try a new approach, have patience once it’s implemented and be open to outcomes you may not have anticipated. Trust also means being willing to learn about what we do at Linden, just as we are learning about you. There’s a systematic art to the science of marketing — the planning, implementation and control of the many business activities intended to bring you and your target audiences together — and it’s what we excel at.


You came to us to help your company grow —

— but we can’t do it without you. We understand that you’re busy running your business, but it’s important to your success that you make yourself available in the decision-making process.

We will carefully create timelines and action items designed to move every project forward. Timely participation on the part of your organization’s decision makers and/or support staff will ensure our ability to meet our projected deadlines and, ultimately, your goals.


Please be clear and up front with us about your goals,

your team’s availability, your company’s data and your budget. We can only operate to your best advantage when we have accurate information — whatever that information may be. For instance, we can’t create an accurate timeline if we can’t estimate how quickly your team can respond, nor can we craft a strategy that’s mindful of your budget if we don’t know what it is.

We’re a small team, which means we really have to work together.

This not only brings us closer, it makes every project we complete a cohesive effort and a piece of art composed of experience and talent. And because each individual member of the Linden team is an accomplished professional, when we work together, the possibilities are boundless.

At Linden, we take our work seriously and we take life as it comes. We love our dogs, espresso-inspired conversations, long walks downtown, cocktails on the patio and finding joy in the details. Essentially, we’re design-obsessed-word-nerds with a passion for strategy, results, and a really good story; and we’re excited to help you tell yours.

So how does our process work?

What to expect


Linden strives to deliver all work in a timely manner, whether it supports a time-sensitive campaign or ongoing brand management. While we are often able to work production miracles under exceptional circumstances, our best work depends on diligent, long-range planning.

We encourage you to meet with your Account Executive on an annual, bi-annual or quarterly basis to identify and map out any anticipated needs. This proactive approach is the most effective use of your time and budgetary resources; unplanned jobs tend to be at greater risk for errors, unnecessary revisions, overages and additional charges associated with expedited production or shipping.

When beginning a new project, we request as much lead time as possible. In general, however, please take into account the following common turnaround guidelines,* keeping in mind that, often, elements of and deliverables for your project will overlap.

*Guidelines are provided for comparison purposes only and assume on-time delivery of materials and approval by client decision-makers. Your project may not follow these exact parameters, and therefore cannot be guaranteed in the above turnaround period.

plan + communicate

Don’t let revisions eat a budget.

Our estimates include two rounds of revisions. The first time you see your project, you may make changes (e.g., editing verbiage, substituting images, providing additional content, changing colors) and send it back to our creative team.

The second version will reflect your changes and give you an opportunity for final tweaks. The following version will be “final” version. After that, we can continue making changes, but an hourly rate will be incurred for each person who is involved in the project, including your Account Executive and our Creative team.

Here are some tips to help minimize unnecessary rounds of revisions:


Provide clear, specific direction. Include examples when helpful.


Deliver all edits, graphics or questions at once, rather than delivering them one by one as you find, create or receive them.


Double-check specifications including dimensions, sizes, color profiles, delivery particulars, etc., before ordering.


Show the first proof to all pertinent decision makers at once and combine their input before returning your edits and comments to Linden.


Set personal opinions aside and do what’s best for the brand.
