What real creative freedom feels like in a theme

WE BELIEVE THE CUSTOMER COMES FIRST – ALWAYS. WE GIVE A LITTLE EXTRA – MAYBE A LOT EXTRA. WE LEAD. WE DO WORK THAT OTHERS CAN’T. WE CONSTANTLY SURPRISE WITH CREATIVE IDEAS. WE HATE MAKING ANYONE WAIT. WE BRING ENERGY. WE HAVE A GOOD TIME. WE ARE KINDRED.

Why Kindred?

Any reputable agency can claim to deliver good work and measure results. But what is good work?

We believe good work tells an inspirational story and has an obvious amount of creativity put into the visuals and the words. Not every agency can deliver on a high level of creative. And not every agency makes a strong connection – and develops a real relationship with their clients.

Discover what it’s like to work with an agency that just… gets you – and who can provide new ideas across nearly any type of communication project you need.

Our Unique Approach

We’ve developed our own way of doing business – designed to cut out the fluff, forge lasting relationships, and make high-quality work more efficient and affordable.

We can be your marketing agency, or we can be your on-site or remote marketing managers – working with your team or taking on the role of a seasoned Marketing Director.

We get to know you and your target audiences via various research steps and whiteboard sessions, we then build unique strategies and plans, and we create award-winning creative with ways to measure results baked in.

Built to Serve You

Kindred’s team brings decades of B2B and B2C experience to the table. Based on your goals and needs, we assemble high-caliber teams with specific experience in your industry. This ensures you are up and running quickly and found in all the right places.

All Kindred projects have ownership involvement from day one, ensuring you get our best. Almost every person on our team hails from West Michigan, ready to meet in person or remotely, with the experience to deliver what you need from concept through completion.

We are so impressed with Kindred's work with our "Watch Us Go" campaign! Their research, brand strategy work, and development of the campaign took the brand to a new level!

Our Story

“Kindred does things a little differently than the usual marketing agency. We’re on the same page – or kindred – with what you want from a marketing partner. You want an agency that moves quickly, surprises you with their work and ideas, brings ROI, and does whatever it takes to satisfy the customer.”

We believe that people choose to work with people who “get them”. Whether it’s when you’re hiring employees or when selecting outside help, you want people who will go to bat for you, who work as hard as you do, and who push to show off results.”

– Don Kalisz,
Owner & Director of Client Strategies

Our Approach

We can be your full-service marketing agency, and/or provide marketing management, social media and online reputation control, or even simple marketing consulting services – all customized to your specific needs.

There is no one-size-fits-all answer. We have clients who have us simply tag in to provide new creative ideas from time to time, others have us strengthen and manage their online reputation, and we have several who hire us to manage all of their marketing research, planning, campaigns, projects, budget setting and tracking, and monitoring of results across all digital or print marketing avenues. We can do all of this, and more, either on-location or remotely.
