Hunter & Bard

And knows how design and messaging can help you sell


A strong brand helps you get leads easier and close deals faster. Only 35% of B2B companies are rated to have a strong brand – which means your company could be losing out on mindshare, awareness, and deals even though your product is brilliant.

Hunter & Bard is a public relations and design agency that builds up your brand. Public relations is the fastest way to build up a wide awareness of your product or service. Of course, once someone knows who you are, they look to see what you do – hence the design side. Having a total consistent message, look, and feel aligns a company and builds trust in your prospects, making deals close up to 30% faster.

We understand the enterprise market and the sales process. If you're an enterprise that needs extra services or a mid-size startup looking to go up market, we can help you.
If you don’t have patience and want a ton of fake followers overnight with no real conversion – please move on. Hunter & Bard will not see you now.
Hunter & Bard sees how product, sales, partnerships and marketing are interconnected and need to work together to create a market leading brand - we will work with you to turn your company into an iconic leader.


People don’t just buy because of the product. They buy because they trust your product to be right for their needs. That trust is your brand value. Great brands lead markets.

We understand the importance of message and design, and we know how powerful a strong brand is. Our customers have had consistently good results from our branding and marketing strategy – proving it works. (Maybe because we’re good at it.) Plus, we love it.

We’re passionate about what we do, and we work with companies who feel the same.

Is your brand helping you sell?


Across a crowded room– your customers need to be able to find you and
have a reason to come back. Our team understands the digital
landscape and knows how to get your company remembered.
