2020… what a year!

But what if we make it the year of reinvention, and evolve into something greater than before?

During this time, we set out on a journey to reflect on what we wanted our advertising agency to become. We’ve been adapting, learning, and growing. Now we’re ready to take on what comes next.

We’d be happy to go on this continued journey with you. Whether it’s your website design, product packaging, or even your logo, we want to help redefine your company’s story.

Let’s venture forward into areas of untapped potential and explore what we can make happen together.

As part of our rebrand, we partnered up with the talented Joshua Noom to help us design a set of illustrations representing our agency's unique facets. For one of the illustrations, we wanted to include our first office space (a retrofitted Airstream trailer), and well, we like what he did with the place.

Here is illustration #1 in the series of 6 of our collaborations.

Agency rebrand, meet stationery. The topographic map pattern on our new business cards represents an overall brand theme of exploration, while also adding depth and interest. When matched with the careful usage of our primary color palette, we’ve created not only a leave-behind, but an impression.

Hey Sixty Vines Plano! Our team wanted to show our support. It was an early team call so we couldn't quite break out the HH wine just yet, but we loved the background. It made us wish we were there.

As we are all taking the necessary precautions with the growing impact of COVID-19, we want to let everyone know our agency is doing the same.

Our company was formed and structured using remote working capabilities since 2010. We regularly utilize those capabilities in conjunction with cloud-based tools and resources to maintain real-time workflow and communications between our teams, as well as clients.

While it’s important for us to prioritize everyone’s health and safety during these times, we also want to ensure our internal workflows, procedures, and processes are not interrupted either.

We are always here to help in any way we can. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions for us.

Our Story

Company Beginnings Monkeytag began in 2010 when two designers, Edgar Pedroza and Anthony Bearden, decided to combine forces and become an extraordinary creative team. They took matters into their own hands and started a creative agency within a custom, retrofitted Airstream trailer located in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas, Texas. It was in this Airstream that Monkeytag established itself as an agency that not only valued the creative work it produced but also looked to genuinely appreciate its clients and employees as well. As the company grew over the following years, Monkeytag quickly gained traction in the industry by establishing itself as an agency that could deliver not only unconventional creative but also offer a collaborative, systematic approach to project management.

Monkeytag is and always has been a forward-thinking agency, and this vision has proven successful over the years. As a result, Monkeytag has established itself as an award-winning agency that continually strives to defy the status quo.

What Does the Name Mean? The Monkeytag name is rooted in two areas. The “monkey” part of the name stems from the founders’ inspiration of the space race, which represented a time of innovation, teamwork, and a desire to achieve the impossible. Before humans could reach the stars, monkeys helped pioneer the way and became some of the first living creatures to experience space exploration. Their successes led to remarkable and unforgettable moments in history.

The “tag” part comes from the informal nicknames of the founders, Anthony and Edgar, but otherwise known as Tony and Gary. They liked the idea of using their nicknames as a playful part of the company, especially since they commonly referred to themselves as just a pair of creative chimps in the early days.
