Wild Monkey provides a one-stop shop to create a distinct brand identity by cutting through the noise to deliver bold, unique approaches to time-tested marketing and design strategies. We are different by design. We believe a strong brand identity is crucial for success and we strive to give passionate and ambitious businesses a competitive advantage in today’s crowded market.
We build brands around one simple yet highly effective philosophy – consistency. Our philosophy of brand consistency is a pattern of expression that affects what people think about our clients. We believe that the more consistent we build your messaging, the more consistent our clients’ branding becomes. Your brand should promote awareness, develop trust and loyalty with customers while eliminating false interpretations.
“Design can be art.
Design can be aesthetics.
Design is so simple, that’s why it is so complicated.”
It’s not what you say it is.
It’s what they say it is.”
Wild Monkey Design was founded by Henry Perkins 2013. Initially, the goal was to produce freelance work for larger firms. We started in a basement and upgraded to our creative studio in Grand Junction, Colorado. After years of education and countless hours of experience and research, we’ve leaped to an identity design firm. This move has allowed us to fulfill all aspects of branding that our clients need to be successful.
In 2019 Wild Monkey took on its first partner in Ariel Aaron and relocated to Dallas Texas, (Time to stop being the big fish in a small pond and become … ummm, Dory?). Ariel brought a marketing and advertising focus that pushed Wild Monkey Design to a new level. Then in 2020, Wild Monkey Design became Wild Monkey as the focus shifted to branding instead of just visual design.
Branding is crucial to the success of your business. We believe that when you have a solid brand identity, you are selling more than just a product or service. You are selling a unique feeling or experience that only you can provide.
In an overcrowded and noisy market, it’s tough to be seen and heard. In order to stand out, businesses need to be quick, agile, and think outside the box, like a monkey (you’ll also need a-peel!).
That’s where we come in. We believe every business should have the opportunity to step up to become a stand out brand. With our experience in design and marketing, not only are we passionate about helping businesses to succeed, we know what it takes to make it happen.
If you’re ready for a problem-solving sidekick to help you put your brand name in lights, we’re ready to be the Robin to your Batman… with or without the cheesy catchphrases (Holy Smokes! Did we just go there?).
Our name and mascot reflect that just like the monkey we have the ability to be creative, intelligent, resourceful, and to think differently, so that we can take a business from just an idea to build a vibrant brand that matters.
Ariel understands how to navigate the digital landscape when clients see it as a daunting task. She sees the team’s collective experience as a cultivated perspective pulling us in the direction of advertising.
Ariel holds small business and entrepreneurship close to her heart. She is invested in the vitality of the business community. Small businesses are at the heart of that community and advertising can help those businesses grow from a single job to a legacy.
