“StewartMarr has an amazing gift for helping lift up the important and compelling work of nonprofits whose work is vital to solving problems and helping make our community a healthier, more vibrant and inclusive place to live. If i am working on a project, it’s always better if StewartMarr is part of the journey.”

“StewartMarr took an incredibly complicated subject, permanent supportive housing for chronically homeless, and made it easily understandable for any reader. They created a beautifully coordinated campaign that had the perfect tone which engaged the reader in the dignity of this housing solution, making arguments for both the head and the heart. Throughout our campaign we were told that our materials were extraordinary – and they were. StewartMarr not only made us look good, they helped us be successful as the campaign reached the monetary goal in ten months.”

“The Housing Partnership has an incredible working relationship with StewartMarr that dates back more than 15 years to when they produced our annual report for the first time. Each year, they come to the table with fresh, compelling ideas, clarity of message and the highest-quality design and production expertise. They consistently help the Housing Partnership deliver a finished product that elicits thoughtful insights, great compliments and respect from our constituency. We value our connection with StewartMarr.”

Julie and Arkon have a special gift of understanding their clients on a deep level and creating unique materials that really make an impact for organizations. HopeWay’s brand has been strong since the first days of our capital campaign in 2014 and that is due in part to StewartMarr’s talent and passion. Today, as we serve adults with mental health challenges and build our fundraising program to support clients and families, StewartMarr is a true partner in helping us deliver our mission to the Charlotte community.

Director of Development & Marketing, HopeWay

“Julie and Arkon did a phenomenal job shaping the messaging and visuals for Men’s Shelter of Charlotte’s “Campaign for a Decent Night’s Sleep.”  After spending one hour listening about what we hoped to accomplish with the campaign, they came back to us with a vision for the campaign that blew us away.  They operate less like designers (though they are great at that), and more like truth-seekers, pulling out what is true about a non-profit’s hope and translating it in a way that will resonate with the truth of others.

I know that we could not have had the success that we had without Julie and Arkon laying such a strong foundation for us.  They were partners throughout the process.”

Executive Director, Men’s Shelter of Charlotte

“We have worked with StewartMarr for several years and have had an extremely good experience. First they listened and developed an understanding of what Saussy Burbank aspires to be. We think that they captured that vision in the message and images that they have developed for us. We have absolute confidence in their ability to tell our story. We strive for authenticity in the way we present our company; that is their strong suit. They advocate vigorously for their creative concepts, yet are willing to listen to our suggestions with an open mind and refine their approach.”

President, Saussy Burbank

“StewartMarr has been our creative/marketing team on many real estate projects in Charlotte and Raleigh in addition to designing the online corporate brochure for Spectrum Properties. A project that really stands out is their rebranding and relaunching of a condominium development in Uptown Charlotte that resulted in rapid sales of the remaining units of the property. The conceptual work was outstanding and their professional insight as to what would be effective was right on the money.”
