We are a branding, advertising, design and digital, because-we-love-our-clients agency

Agency Brand and Culture.

St. Bernadine Mission Communications was created in 2004 to give clients access to the strategic thinking, insight mining, and creative horsepower that big agencies can deliver, but with a difference.

We are 100% focused on our client’s business problems – not notoriety for ourselves. Responsiveness, and a complete commitment to our clients’ business success is baked into our culture.

Our style is to provide thought leadership and creative stopping power without the hubris, layers, and cost that we’ve seen accompany the process at other places. We have a culture of collaboration and we pride ourselves on doing great work for clients who actually enjoy the process of working with us.

Our clients get experienced strategic guidance, breakthrough creative, and flawless execution – and we’re actually fun to work with. No pomp and circumstance, just great work done cheerfully by nice people.

If it’s not compelling,

it won’t get noticed.

If it isn’t authentic and driven
 by a relevant strategic insight,

it won’t resonate.

If it doesn’t resonate,

it won’t engage them.

If it doesn’t engage them,

it won’t inspire action.

Responsiveness, and a complete commitment to our clients’ business success is baked into our culture.

Big Brand Experience. Small Agency Efficiency.

Instead of all that old behemoth agency overhead, we focus our investments on our people. With a creative department larger than most agencies several times our size, we pride ourselves on getting to solutions faster. That saves more than just time, it saves money and makes the process easier. It also means there is always someone available to work on your projects and meet your deadlines.

It’s great to benefit from the knowledge and professionalism that comes with large brand experience, but it’s even better to have that coupled with the responsiveness, flexibility, and efficiency that an agency our size is best suited to deliver.

You can expect the full commitment and involvement of our senior partners in all aspects of your business at every stage of the process – not just the first meeting.

Being media neutral lets us focus on what can benefit your brand the most.

Creative Philosophy.

We exist to solve problems. Successfully solving problems is what drives our culture and sustains our business. Our tools for problem solving are disciplined strategic thinking, insight and creativity.

We strive to build solutions that are rooted in an intelligent consumer insight – an insight that positions our client’s brand in an authentic, relevant and compelling spot on our prospect’s mental map.

To us, great work must be disruptive enough to break through the clutter of a competitive category. It must reflect the authenticity of a brand. It needs to resonate with the customer and it has to engage them in a conversation and a relationship.

Creativity without insight is like unharnessed energy.

It can be admired for its potential power, but it can’t be used to solve problems.

If you’d like to learn more about the agency, tell us about a project, or just chat about life’s mysteries, get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
