J.D. Hill, Inc. – Advertising Agencies / Consultants
We’re one of those rare small and well-experienced advertising agencies that specializes in branding our clients using an integrated approach. We always joke about getting out our “magic wand” to meet impossible deadlines, but we seriously know how to get things done. We synthesize complex concepts and information quickly and turn it into highly-targeted, visually-impactful messaging for our clients - for web, print, and presentation, using one to reinforce the other. When you’ve sent the other guys packing and you need it now and done right, we’re the ones to call.
What should you expect when you contract us for your project? You can expect a very high-level of creativity – the kind you’d find at some big pricey agency on Madison Avenue, but without the stuffed shirts and pomp and circumstance or jaw dropping invoices. We’re the people at the intersection of technology and design - blending the two to create compelling marketing with your goals in mind. You can count on personal attention at every level of your projects and leave the details and deadlines to us. You can expect emails at odd hours of the night and on weekends because we don’t quit until the job is done. Your success is ours too. Our clients range in size from new companies up to about a billion a year in sales.
Jody E. Hill – President
I founded this agency back in what now seems like the Stone Age - 1986. It was before much was being done on computers and layouts were still done with colored markers on sketch pads. I got my start in the business back in the mid 70’s after I had graduated from art school and went to work for an ad agency in Pittsburgh. There, I worked on accounts like Westinghouse, Dravo, Satec Systems and other industrial concerns. Longing for more of the small town feel, I ended up back in NW Pennsylvania and developed marketing materials for a cutting tool manufacturer for the next seven years. Little did I know, I would be bitten by the entrepreneurial bug, and strike out on my own. Surrounded by Tool & Die and Plastic Injection Molding companies, I soon learned the difference between a Mill and a Lathe, and between a 20 ton press and a 1500 ton press. Technology fascinated me, and still does to this day. I thoroughly enjoy grasping and understanding a client’s technology or product and figuring out how to market it to our customers’ prospective clients. While we do a tremendous amount of work for industrial accounts, we are adept at marketing any type of business – whether it’s a law firm, restaurant, or group of plastic surgeons. Our clients range from start-ups to about a billion a year in revenue.
