REDFORD, MI – In spite of poor economic conditions and the near collapse of the advertising industry within Michigan, Redford-based Jekyll and Hyde (formerly Western Creative) has finished 2009 with 57% growth. In addition, the firm is positioned to see similar growth for 2010.

Jekyll and Hyde chairman, Mark Young, attributes the meteoric growth to several factors. “Most importantly, we focus on our clients’ success, knowing that if we can grow business for our clients, our success will follow. The firm does not pursue or serve the automotive industry; we focus on national consumer brands. We do not limit ourselves to the local economy and we focus on staying ahead of advertising trends and technology, and we pride ourselves in finding the creative and smart men and women that truly care about the work.”

2009 brought new clients to Jekyll and Hyde, such as Service Corporation International, the nation’s largest provider of funeral, cremation and cemetery services (www.dignitymemorial.com) and Triumph Pharmaceuticals, makers of SmartMouth Mouthwash and SmartMouth products available nationwide (www.smartmouth.com), to name a few. Beyond new business acquisition, a vast majority of Jekyll and Hyde’s clients have seen tremendous growth in 2009, even though their categories experienced a steady decline. Jekyll and Hyde recently expanded their national footprint in October of last year by opening a branch office in the Chicago area.

Jekyll and Hyde provides a multitude of services to clients nationally, including: Brand Positioning and Development:

  • Account Management
  • Digital advertising and analytical monitoring of all campaigns
  • Local, regional and national media buying for all forms of media including television, print, digital, out door, etc.
  • Production Services including creative, graphic design, packaging, animation, video editing, photography, website development

Jekyll and Hyde is an awarding-winning, full-service advertising agency based in Redford, MI, founded by Mark Young in 1996. Jekyll and Hyde specializes in consumer packaged goods and serves clients nationwide.
