Yes& Earns Spot on INC's 5000 List of Country's Fastest Growing Private Companies


August 18, 2022 — Yes& is thrilled to announce that it has once again earned a spot on Inc. Magazine's Inc. 5000 List of the fastest-growing privately held companies in America. Counting 2017, 2018, and 2019, this is the fourth time Yes& has been recognized.

This year, Inc. gathered data from thousands of companies to recognize growth – both in revenue and number of employees – to determine who makes the list. With 108% growth and 126 new hires in the past year, Yes& earned its spot on the annual winners list, titled, “Meet the Companies Winning in a Time of Change – and Achieving Spectacular Growth.”

“Our goal at Yes& is to be a great agency, not a big agency,” said President and CEO Robert W. Sprague. “Being named on the Inc. 5000 for a fourth time, however, is a sign that our clients value what we call ‘the perpetual pursuit of &.’”

Yes& is the “yes” company, an integrated marketing agency serving complex needs across the commercial, association, B2G, and government sectors for brands including Dell, Avaya, Intel, CrowdStrike, Choice Hotels, Windsor Properties, ASAE, the National Fish & Wildlife Federation, FINRA, The Epilepsy Foundation, FEMA, the U.S. Department of Transportation, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Yes& brings “positivity + possibility” through an expanding suite of capabilities including branding, digital strategy and analytics, advertising, customer experience (CX), market research, content development, events, and public relations. Yes& serves clients nationwide from its headquarters in the Washington, DC and Philadelphia, PA areas.

“We are deeply grateful to the clients who have responded to our promise of ‘positivity + possibility’ and entrusted their brands and campaigns to us,” added Sprague. “Our thanks also to the talented and hardworking Yes&ers who have helped meet our clients’ needs.”

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.

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.
