Yvette Jones of designCraft Advertising
Yvette Jones is the owner of designCraft Advertising, a full-service agency focused on local organizations. Yvette started the agency when she arrived in Madison in the mid-1980s with a background as a corporate copywriter and a passion for small business. She started assembling creative teams to give small firms a bigger voice. As local ad needs increased, designCraft grew into a permanent home on Park Street, where they now have room for ping pong and for combining their talents, skills and experience to provide design and advertising services to all firms local.
What’s your favorite part of running your business?
Working with small, local organizations and helping them grow. I also love to meet and learn about new organizations in Madison. I have such a talented team who is supportive and devoted to our community. It's rewarding to use our talents and skills for organizations that work with the goal of supporting Madison-based organizations.
Is there anything new or exciting happening with your business now or in the upcoming months?
We often hold social media contests on our social media, inviting local organizations to participate to win a coffee or beer session with our team, along with a tour of our sustainable Park Street office. These happen now and will be happening in the coming months.
