TESTIMONIALS
Anthony Cuellar SVP, Marketing, Diversified

“It was evident from the start that the experience and expertise Bruce and Adam had would serve us well. They took time to understand the essence of our companies and developed brand mark concepts and color palettes that reflected our identity. Their creativity and follow through was above our expectations and we are excited about our brand and know it will serve us well for years to come.

Adam and his team did a tremendous job on all counts and our impressions and page views have doubled since our launch in just a few short months. The Echo Brand Group team have exceeded all our expectations!”

Peter Corbett CEO & President, Insports Centers

I can recommend the team at Echo Brand Group without any hesitation! In three weeks, they built a website that exceeded my expectations – but more important, it has more impact and usability than all of my competitors websites. It looks great on mobile phones also. This is a great team to work with, who made all the details of our web project easy for us. Whatever we needed, they did it – photography, copy writing, logo design. It all came together in a great website. Then they trained our staff, and our theme has been easy to update. They have a great approach to building a new website – highly recommend giving them a call.

Drew Seath Marketing Director, Absolute Value

I feel fortunate to have had Echo Brand Group do a complete overhaul of our website.  Throughout the project they demonstrated expertise in all facets of the project, from what technology to use, how the site should be designed, appropriate content marketing strategies, SEO and more.  They provided a turn-key service that allowed me to focus on running my business and they focused on building the website my business needed.

I found them to be thorough, diligent, knowledgeable, responsive – and on-budget.  I am already talking to them about the next round of updates and can’t wait to get started with them!
Vivian Lee-Shiue Chair, Economic Development Commission

"Echo Brand Group and Adam Pemberton's professionalism and support from beginning to end made the entire process for creating the video highlighting our town very easy and enjoyable. He was able to navigate the many constituents involved with tremendous effectiveness and efficiency. More importantly, he allowed us to voice our opinions and ideas, while providing guidance where needed to enable us to get to our end-product within budget and on time. The video exceeds my expectations, and truly highlights what a great community Wilton is."

Tom Chiappetta Executive Director, Fairfield County Sports Commission

We thought we wanted a custom website design, but we didn’t have the budget to go that route. What we got was even better. Echo Brand Group built our site on a commercial theme, and the end result is simply amazing. Our non-profit now looks like an organization ten times our size. They did a fantastic job organizing a ton of content, making it easier to browse by using some creative new tools. Her communication was terrific, keeping me up to date and feeding me punch lists of what she needed. I can’t say enough about how Web Design Farm went the extra yard for us on all we asked for, making the process for this project very efficient and the end product a major upgrade for our site.
