Hey there, I'm Brent Flink

I help companies build brands, messaging and designs that set them apart. I amplify the ideas that make them unique in ways that build awareness and boost sales.

 

Hi. I'm Brent. And I love helping people (and companies) get unstuck, find their voice and communicate what makes them special. I call it "ideas amplified". It's what happens when companies effectively communicate the things that set them apart and build their brands, messaging and advertising on those things. I have years of ad agency and CPG experience and would love to help you and your team build better brands.
