Archmark is a boutique branding and marketing agency focused on helping architects build thriving, profitable businesses.
Archmark is built on the foundation of Image Engineers, the first creative agency we started in 2007 while living in Zurich, Switzerland. "We" being Bryon & Kellie McCartney, the agency's co-founders and managing partners (in business and in life).
After decades of working for major, global creative and marketing firms in the U.S. and Europe, we took the leap and set up our agency.
Even in the shadow of the financial crisis of 2008, we booked more than $1.5 million in projects in our first two years and traveled across five continents. After helping one client bounce back and reposition after near bankruptcy, and assisting another client with acquisitions and expansions into new global markets, we were ready for something different. And a little closer to home.
We sold our business in 2012 and moved back to the U.S. to start our next adventure. With Be Brilliant! Branding & Marketing, our big-business experience translated into a disciplined branding and business development process that gave local clients fresh insights and professional marketing direction they weren't getting anywhere else.
For the first three years, our billings doubled year over year. But, even as our business grew, it became clear that not every client was the perfect fit. So, we narrowed our focus to doing more of what we excelled at—and loved doing—and began to attract clients who valued what we do. Along the way, we found ourselves working more and more with architecture and design firms, custom builders, and home services.
Archmark is the result of tailoring our best practices and approach to the specific needs and challenges of architects and designers who want to grow their businesses.
While we are not architects ourselves, we are brand and business builders who love all things architecture and design related. And we love working with architects and designers to help them succeed. We hope that we can help you.
