● What clients say about working with Motto

All of this would not have been possible without the brilliant team at Motto led by Sunny Bonnell and Ashleigh Hansberger challenging our thinking and carrying us through the whole rebranding process.

– Hicham Chahine, CEO, Ninjas in Pyjamas

Sunny, Ashleigh and the Motto team have been incredible partners in every way. I can’t say enough good things about their ability to understand our needs and bring our ideas to life, with even more beauty and zest than we could have imagined. Beyond being able to stunningly visualize a prompt, they are a joy to work with — responsive, timely, solutions-oriented and positive.

I’ve consistently referred Motto to everyone who asks for an all around creative powerhouse because I’ve always felt we were more than just a client, but a true partner. They do not disappoint and are always as committed to a project as we are. I can’t wait to work with this team again in the future!

– Allie Kuzyk, Global Program Manager, Google

One of the best experiences of our organization.

— Geoff Colon, Microsoft®

Motto blew us away. They exceeded our team’s expectations by 100x.

— Annie, VP of Marketing, Artnet

We’ve been around since 1931 and needed a pivotal rebrand to connect with modern customers. I considered a number of branding companies, but no one understood our goals like Motto. Other agencies applied formulaic solutions based on the strategies of our competitors. Motto, on the other hand, advocated for a unique identity that would set us apart in the industry. They are a well-oiled machine, hit every deadline, and kept our project organized. Instead of mimicking our competitors, Motto drove us in an entirely different direction. This scared us at first, but we trusted them – and it worked. Sales doubled within 2 months of our launch and we are growing month over month, year over year.

— Vincent, CMO, Christeli

Motto understood the exact vibe and energy we wanted to communicate through our brand. They executed it both strategically and creatively. And, they captured the soul of what we do everyday in a way that helps us tell our story effortlessly.

— Jonathan, Founder, Fort Worth Barbershop

Motto is exceptional. We are getting amazing feedback from stakeholders, investors, and customers. Sunny and Ashleigh (and Team Motto) are very inspiring to work with. They make sure that all deliverables are done with a high degree of excellence. It has been the greatest experience to work with them, particularly for executives in the company who are excited about the future of our brand. Listen to what they tell you to do.

— Danny, Founder, Even

We searched for a branding agency for over six months and received many proposals. We did so much research before choosing Motto. They are hungry, bold, outgoing, brash and they break norms.

Motto focuses on quality and they understand what is important and meaningful. They are different from other agencies, and you can feel it. They are great at digging in and understanding your goals and visions. It was a great experience.

— Joshua, Co-Founder, Salt of the Earth

Our hearts exploded with love for everything Motto created for us.

— Lauren, Senior Video Producer, Gannett

Motto increased visitors to our site by 85% and increased conversions by 20% within a few months of our new brand launch. Their work has transformed our business from the inside out.

— Ian, Co-Founder, Serraview

We love Motto. We have been working with them for years and very happy with their level of service and expertise. Motto’s knowledge of branding and design execution has been crucial in taking our online retail business to the next level. The changes are sometimes subtle, sometimes dramatic, but they all equal a coherent brand image that our new and old customers are definitely going to notice. We’ve evolved into a stronger brand with a stronger image.

— Thomas, Founder, Crown & Buckle

Motto has been a long partnership for us and they’ve built our brand from the ground up. They are very thoughtful and effective at their craft. They think outside the box and bring tons of experience to the table. We are very pleased with how Motto has managed and executed numerous types of branding & design projects for us. We love our brand and so do our customers.

— Michelle, Founder, Munk Pack

Our team is so excited at the new name and branding! Thanks for working with us in creating this new face. The vibe here is electric.

— Derek, CEO, Hypervibe

Motto “gets it”. Their team helped us think about who we are as a company and the message we needed to convey. This exercise not only displayed maturity on their part, but it helped our company solidify and document our purpose. This became much bigger than a branding exercise. It ENERGIZED our entire company!

As we moved from concept into design and content, Motto delivered. We’ve been thrilled with their work from start to finish. Thanks to them, we have branded our purpose. Working with Motto has been the most successful 3rd party project in the 12 years of our company. We were struggling, and they rescued us. We’ve grown 20% year over year.

We still cherish that time together with Motto and our now dear friends Ashleigh Hansberger and Sunny Bonnell! In fact, we tell the story about how the team extracted what became our Manifesto. The Manifesto is and will always be Text-Em-All’s North Star. We are grateful for both your enduring work and your friendship!

— Boris, Founder, Evolvh

Motto’s work on creating our branding for a new line of supplements and treats was incredible. They possess an expert knowledge on how the market may perceive our products and implemented unique and inventive ways to develop our brand. Not only did they create our logo and look and feel of our products, but they also took an extra step to test the packaging on others. Throughout the entire process, they were personable and professional. We love working with them. We will always highly recommend Motto to all other business associates.

— Charisa, Co-Founder, Cocotherapy

Motto is the masterminds behind our brand: they came up with the name, identity, colors & visual design of the flagship app. Within a short period, they “got” what we were trying to achieve and came up with excellent solutions for our long standing brand and user recognition problems. They are creative, hard working, very easy and fun to work with. I am very happy!

— Dhanush, Founder, Sortly

Motto gave us the brand and visual makeover we had always dreamed of.

The team at Motto is bold and boisterous, leaders not losers, determined and dedicated.

— David, Founder, Honeydrop Tea

Motto understands that branding is much more than just logos, colors, and design. It was difficult to get to the root of what drives our company. But once found, it provided a clarity that touches on every decision we make.

— Hai, Co-Founder, Call-Em-All

Sunny, Ashleigh and the team at Motto are truly visionary. They’re honest. They’re legit. No B.S. They look at the whole company, it’s purpose, and create an aesthetic and experience that far exceeds what a company could ever dream of.
