About Pearl

You can imagine my delight when one day I shucked open an oyster shell and found my hidden pearl.

As a marketing professional, the beautiful symbolism of this pearl became immediately apparent to me: with the sea of noise generated in today's Information Age, businesses must adopt innovative techniques to have their brand message heard. Inspired to help businesses communicate their unique story and brand value, Pearl Marketing & Design was born.
