Before we talk about us, let’s talk about you.
Finding the right agency—in one massive sea of them—is a big job. Lofty business goals keep your head spinning and everyone expects you to be the hero that saves the day…and the quarter. You can’t do it all yourself and your team is already busy AF. We get it.
Now ask yourself, do you want to work with a big, flashy, pomp-and-circumstance kind of agency, or one that rolls up its sleeves and collaborates with you to solve problems? If it’s the latter, you’re in the right place
Born of curiosity and enthusiasm, we’re a scrappy group of smart, passionate marketers who work hard and play hard. We show up every day and fight for our clients who are making the world a better place. We listen with curiosity, explore deeply, ask hard questions, and sometimes put forth ideas that might make you squirm. Because we believe the status quo is good for growing mold but not much else.
The way we see it, change is the way forward and the magic happens when curiosity, math, science, instinct, and talent intersect.
cat&tonic is a reincarnation of d.trio marketing group—formed hastily in the final days of 1999. In the 20+ years since, we’ve fully pivoted from a direct-response agency to a creative, branding, and strategic marketing shop. With one founding partner now solely at the reins, we’ve morphed into [c&t]. Even though our name has changed, we remain the same eclectic group of long-time marketers with a passion for helping clients put their best foot forward.
The values that serve as a foundation to everything we do
Once you get to know us, you’ll find…
An open bottle of chardonnay doesn’t last long in our midst.
The grit on the carpet likely came in on bike tires.
Illustrations appear in random places without warning.
Our obsession with 4-legged furry creatures might be a little over the top.
Talk of video games is ubiquitous among the nerds.
The staff at Darby’s know a lot more about us than just our names.
We never shut up about food unless our mouths are full of it.
If there were laws against sarcasm, puns, and dad jokes, we’d be running this business from prison.
