Some of Our Clients

What Our Clients Say

I loved that we had a total 360 of our messaging grounded in the foundation that Primary developed with us, and firing in sync on every platform.

Althea Hall, marketing director at Greensboro Children’s Museum

I have worked with many design/advertising agencies within the multifamily industry, since 2000, but none have provided the exceptional level of service and product quality that Primary Design delivers.

Kevin Thompson, SVP of Marketing, Bell Partners, Inc.

Primary Design created an amazing new logo with tagline along with a beautiful website and marketing materials. The difference in our image is dramatic. Outstanding!

Joe Quinn, President, CharterSearch, Inc.

We continue to work with Primary because of their attention to us as a Client as well as their expert knowledge.

Barbara Hoskins, Director of Marketing, Pulte Homes
