"Estudio Ray consistently demonstrates a keen insight into the brand building and target marketing. Their creativity and expertise are a big part of our strategies for success in driving increased sales"
Sarah Cheek Senior Vice President, Marketing Pivotal Group
"In my experience in the area of Pharmaceutical skin care marketing, it is a challenge to find an agency that can provide cutting edge design concepts yet meet the needs of a conservative industry. In so doing, we created strong brand identity for prescription and cosmeceutical product alike.
It is also remarkable that Estudio Ray never missed a deadline they committed to! I look forward to other opportunities to work with them"
Pamela Schembs Senior Vice President of Marketing Medicis, The Dermatology Company
