Don Farleo Advertising & Design
Graphic Designer in Minneapolis, MN
Don Farleo Advertising & Design Company (ADCo) was established in March 1991 to fill a distinctive niche as a communications firm - a firm with lots of the capabilities of a complete-service advertising, design and marketing agency; yet, a firm with the heart and soul of a freelancer. Don Farleo, ADCo's owner, left the multilevel bureaucracies of conventional advertising agencies because he believed then as he does now, that customers could and should expect honest value and accountability. You shouldn't have to pay for the stuffing in the heart.

read moreThe best solutions are achieved through a collaborative effort. From the early conceptual stages of the creative process to the final solution, we always encourage client input and feedback. While every client has specific process preferences, the following outlines our important steps. Whether it is a logo, a brochure or a Website, we first must completely understand the scope and objectives of the project. Assigning appropriate time allotments for each step of the process, (or working back from a deadline), we establish a schedule.

read moreMaybe the best advice I ever received about business came from a bumper sticker. I guess that also partly explains why I chose advertising, the art of slogan writing and persuasive pictures, as my livelihood. I knew a guy in high school, Bobby, who wore bright green high-top sneakers every day. He always sat in the same seat on the bus and at lunch. In class, Bobby was quick to raise his hand. And if you needed help with school work, he was right there to lend a hand. He played on the basketball team and was usually good for a couple of rebounds and at least six points.
