Yes&

Agency Enhances Website and Application Development Capabilities

 

Yes& announced today that it has acquired P’unk Avenue, a creative and digital studio named after Passyunk Avenue in Philadelphia, where it was founded. Its team adds significant branding, strategy, creative thinking, user experience, website design, and application development expertise to the Yes& portfolio of services. P’unk Avenue is led by its President, Anthony Robinson, a recognized leader in higher education marketing. 

Dedicated to doing good work with good people,” P’unk Avenue has developed a strong presence in the higher education and not-for-profit space. P’unk Avenue’s clientele is culturally aligned with many mission- and purpose-driven clients on the Yes& roster, including associations, charities, and government agencies. 

“I am privileged to welcome Anthony and the P’unk Avenue team to Yes&,” said Robert W. Sprague, President & CEO, Yes&. “They are a delightful and talented group of people who bring with them outstanding capabilities in design and digital along with great positioning in the higher education and not-for-profit verticals.”  

This acquisition provides Yes& with the opportunity to bring its “positivity & possibility” model to new verticals and take a material step towards its vision of being the go-to agency based in the mid-Atlantic. At a time where all marketing is digital marketing, P’unk Avenue’s web development, UI/UX strategy and digital design strengths will help Yes& address an even more comprehensive range of client needs. 

As part of the acquisition, Yes& has brought on all P’unk Avenue staffers. Anthony Robinson will bring his skills to the Yes& leadership team, helping to grow the P’unk Avenue workstream and making sure P'unk Avenue’s capabilities seamlessly and cohesively integrate into Yes&’s client work. 

"We’re honored to be welcomed into the greater Yes& family. By combining P’unk Avenue’s digital expertise with all that Yes& has to offer, we look forward to serving our partners in new ways,” said Robinson. “P’unk Avenue will continue to be a place that focuses on a diverse human experience — and elevating the important work and missions of our partners.

Yes& is committed to maintaining great relationships with P’unk Avenue clients, with the bold approach and energy P’unk Avenue has brought to their work to date.

The creative process is inherently nonlinear, and there’s certainly no right or wrong way to get to a final design result, but there is a ton of opportunity along the way to discover new possibilities. Diving into the process of research, ideating, sketching, and refining is unique for every creative and every project. There are no set rules or guidelines to the creative process that we can share with you to guarantee success. However, there is plenty of structure in what we do at Yes&. We are always thinking and working with the mindset of “&” that takes our work to its full potential. We sat down with Yes& Creative Directors, Brian Domenici, Jen Fose, and Claudia Barac-Roth to interview them on their own personal creative process and how they incorporate “&” thinking into their design.

We often hear about the stress of finding a job or even just enjoying a job—the culture, corporate politics, jargon, expectations, and the relationships established—but what we should be talking about is opportunity and growth within a company.

Ever heard the expression, “Stay ready, so you don’t have to get ready?” Well, September officially embodies that good advice in the form of National Preparedness Month, an annual observance dedicated to raising awareness about preparing for disasters and emergencies that could happen at any time.

Whether we realize it or not, color plays a critical role in our lives. It tells us when to hit the gas, pump the brake, or proceed with caution. It turns our stomachs and makes our mouths water. It can even make us happier. Color is more than what we see with our eyes. It is a powerful tool that silently communicates and influences behavior. From how an office is decorated to increase productivity or inspire creativity, to selling a new car model through a TV commercial, color is used to stimulate our brains. Studies have shown that people decide whether or not they like a product in 90 seconds or less. Around 90% of that decision is based solely on color. Additionally, an individual’s reaction to a color can be deeply personal and rooted in their own experience. So, it’s important that a brand selects the right color to communicate their message to a specific audience, using color psychology to their advantage.
