Testimonials

"We have been working with Dave, Pam and the team at Petryna Advertising for almost two years now. The Transit Action Plan, which resulted in GOVA Greater Sudbury’s refreshed transit system, was a complex project with many moving parts. It was incredibly comforting to have a partner in Petryna Advertising that we could count on, from meeting deadlines to delivering high quality work. As a municipality, we have many stakeholders and we were committed to hitting ambitious timelines in this process. The result was a well-received refreshed transit system (the first overhaul in over 20 years) that was completed both on-time and on-budget. Petryna Advertising was with us every step of the way and at every turn and corner. They treated my entire team with respect and were highly collaborative and responsive to suggestions and recommendations. It is a pleasure working with the team at Petryna Advertising and we would recommend them for any strategic branding and marketing project."

"At Science North we pride ourselves on being the leader among science centres in providing inspirational, educational and entertaining science experiences. What some people don’t know is that we actually produce our own exhibits that we lease to other science centres and museums all over the world! Petryna Advertising acted as an extension of our internal team to help develop the marketing materials for our latest exhibit - The Science of Guinness World Records. As a small but mighty marketing department, we worked with Pam, Mario, Lori and the rest of the Petryna Advertising team to develop the marketing materials that really brought to life how interactive and fun this exhibit is – for the entire family! Petryna Advertising developed the Marketing Guide which consists of an entire marketing campaign developed for all mediums that our clients can easily customize for their own campaigns. One execution I would like to point out was the TV commercial - from the storyboard presentation to the final edit, the process was flawless and very collaborative. They also designed the Education Guide which is available for educators to see how different parts of the exhibit directly tie into their curriculum. We not only developed an amazing campaign together, but we had a lot of fun doing it! We really enjoy working with Petryna Advertising and look forward to working with them again soon."

"We've been working with Pam and the team at Petryna Advertising for a while now on a few different transit projects. Our relationship started with the refresh of the Greater Sudbury Transit System, now known as GOVA, and when the opportunity presented itself to work together on Red Deer and Yellowknife, I didn’t think twice about calling Pam. Transit projects follow very public project schedules, with many stakeholders and influencers. Often times there is little forgiveness and flexibility with respect to deadlines and milestones, and Pam is able to work with us to ensure these deadlines are met. From a design perspective, Lori has the unique ability to work within complex environments, like managing multiple maps and scheduling systems and still delivering beautiful design work that meets our objectives.What makes working with Petryna Advertising enjoyable is their overall positive attitudes - even with multiple deadlines looming and many changes being made. The team we have developed is a strong and productive one, and we enjoy working with our friends at Petryna Advertising."

"We recently completed a re-branding exercise. Petryna Advertising excelled in every way. I have been through this process in the past, but the Petryna Advertising experience was refreshing. They gather input from key stakeholders, and we had a short brainstorming session. They helped us define our purpose and had brand options in a few short weeks. All of the options were fantastic, and it was tough to choose. In the end, I am extremely happy with the outcome. I highly recommend that you engage with Petryna Advertising for your upcoming brand renewal. Pam and her team made the process painless and quick for us at Ionic Mechatronics.”

"When our Board of Directors formally decided to change our name and branding in mid-December from SAMSSA to MineConnect, we knew we couldn’t miss the opportunity to launch this exciting news at PDAC. But that meant that we had to issue an RFP, award the job and work with the successful proponent to develop and execute an entire branding and marketing campaign in just two months. Finding the right partner was critical to our success and we felt very confident when awarding this project to Pam and her team at Petryna Advertising. With just two weeks of creative development, Petryna Advertising presented five different logo options with multiple taglines to our Board of Directors. We were very impressed with the creative and this made choosing just one logo very hard. With an approved creative direction, we moved on to developing a launch campaign in just under four weeks. We were extremely impressed with not only the speed of the work, but more importantly with the quality of the creative that was produced. You would never know we developed this campaign in such a short period of time! I would feel very comfortable recommending Petryna Advertising for any marketing strategy and branding work.”

"We have worked with Petryna Advertising for many years on a wide variety of marketing campaigns and feel very comfortable recommending them to anyone seeking a hardworking, knowledgeable firm that specializes in targeted marketing and big ideas. We engaged Petryna Advertising in 2015 to develop a campaign to bring a number of messages to existing and prospective members about the services offered by the chamber. Their work was professional and delivered a strong message consistent with our brand. Following that campaign, Petryna Advertising was awarded a tender to create, design and produce videos for our annual Bell Business Excellence Awards (BEA), as well as to deliver the production services (audio, video, lighting) for the event. We were very pleased with the results. The project was completed in advance of our deadline and complimented our new BEA format. In 2016, Petryna Advertising was selected from an open tender process as our Agency of Record to work with us on various marketing campaigns. One of these projects was the rollout of our 2018-2020 Strategic Plan. This project was very comprehensive and included a booklet, a series of videos, out of home billboard advertising, and window decals. The results were wide-reaching and received much acclaim. I have no hesitation in recommending Petryna Advertising for any marketing campaign, big or small; you won’t be disappointed."
