tbd advertising from Bend Oregon


tbd advertising, a full-service advertising agency in Bend Oregon founded in 1997, today announced that it has recently received several awards and honors for its work. Last month, the company was honored with multiple wins through two major awards programs, The Drake Awards and the Northwest ADDYs.

Dan Wieden of Wieden + Kennedy said, "The major metropolitan centers are not the only place you’ll find bright creative agencies. In fact there is one real gem in Bend, Oregon. tbd advertising has corralled some terrific strategic and creative talent from around the country and dropped them in this beautiful high desert town."

"At tbd, our first goal is always to create campaigns for our clients that bring them the results that they want," said Paul Evers, president and creative director. "To be recognized by highly respected awards programs and industry publications is an added bonus for our team and the work we do." tbd's client roster includes Oregon Chai, IronHorse, Deschutes Brewery, NorthWest Crossing, Deschutes River Conservancy and Yarrow as well as community and non-profit organizations.

Recent awards and recognition include:
