A Short and Sweet History
Call it the lure of the Junior Mints.
Founded in 1985, Tomlinson LLC is a full-service branding marketing agency and the brainchild of Bill Tomlinson. Bill spent his youth in the office of his father’s design firm, watching his Dad create packaging for Nabisco food products. A decade or so – and countless PomPoms, Junior Mints and Charleston Chews later – his Dad paid off his dentist, and Bill applied to commercial art school figuring it would be a sweet career.
After stints as a Design Director with Hill Holiday and Polaroid, Bill decided to strike out on his own and form Tomlinson LLC. With group of like-minded advertising vets, Bill began acquiring clients and creating the clean, creative, beautiful work that has become the agency’s signature strength.
It’s a reputation that Bill can back with a roll call of big brand names (including Reebok, Lindt, Lotus/IBM, Timberland, CCA Global and Gillette) and over 75 national and international awards for creative excellence. Not to mention a new generation of team members who are helping Tomlinson LLC push forward the boundaries of digital and print marketing.
Drop by any time to see what we’re up to. Tomlinson LLC is headquartered in the grand old seafaring city of Newburyport, Massachusetts, now home to a number of vibrant 21st century initiatives. We’ll be more than happy to offer you a Junior Mint.
