About Us

Studio del Mar is a marketing team with endless enthusiasm and boundless energy. We focus on collaborating with our clients to build powerful and enduring brands, and creative solutions based on strategic ideas. It's through this collaboration that we continually search for new unforgettable ideas, strategies and campaigns with heart.

Award-Winning creative and design agency

When we opened our doors in 1998, the world was on the verge of the digital revolution. We used the term “integrated marketing solutions” as our vision statement because we believed it outlined everything we did for our clients. We integrated traditional forms of media and marketing with new vehicles for delivery - making a stronger, more cohesive message and brand. Today, those values hold true. Our goal with any client interaction is to help you define your need, structure a campaign based on that need, design the product and then implement.

As an award-winning firm, Studio del Mar specialized in providing integrated marketing solutions with a purpose – from strategic research to corporate branding and product launches. We believe in immersing ourselves in our clients’ goals before we are able to market their products and services. The result is communication designed with passion that inspires consumer emotion, which turns into action.
