ROOTED IN SALES AND SERVICE


ROOTED IN SALES AND SERVICE

Our story begins in 1981, when Rich May Sr., a respected Twin Cities advertising and sales professional, opened the doors of May Advertising and Design. His son, Rich May Jr., joined the agency in 1989. Rich Jr. brought with him the bells and whistles of new technologies, along with a commitment to continue his dad’s reputation for impeccable client service.

Since taking the reins in 2000, Rich Jr. has decidedly become his father (hey, it happens to all of us). The agency has continued to evolve and attract tremendous talent, while maintaining its core staff and decades-long client relationships—a rare feat of which we are extremely proud.

Having worked together for years, we quickly generate ideas and push creative boundaries. It’s how we stay tight and efficient. (Some swear we’re mind readers.) True to our roots, we know how to support a sales team, and we know how to get results.

A REFRESHING ALTERNATIVE

We’re different from most agencies in that we’re comfortable behind the scenes. Chances are, you’ve seen our work at your local supermarket, at your favorite bank or while driving along the highway. The fact that you don’t see a full portfolio of work here can be explained by how we do business: we take client confidentiality seriously.
If you’d like to get a better feel for the type of work we do,  please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
