82 West services clients using both online and traditional media. With proficiencies in brand strategy, graphic design, website design and video production, the agency is able to create and manage comprehensive marketing plans for any number of different industries and businesses.
“Our specialty is helping small to mid-size companies that either have no marketing department or are looking to expand their marketing efforts beyond their internal capabilities,” said Craig Worsham, Founder and Creative Director at 82 West. “We provide the services of a large marketing department at a fraction of the cost.”
Worsham helped create dozens of campaigns for companies, including TV commercials for McDonalds, Walmart, P&G, KFC and Dell computers. 82 West’s portfolio also includes a number of local, reputable organizations such as PawsPlus pet clinics, Oh My Gauze! clothing stores, TUNG Brush, Low Vision Works and the Manasota Lacrosse Academy.
“We’ve worked on large scale campaigns with big, national partners, yet we still get the most satisfaction when helping local businesses grow,” said Worsham. “So many businesses out there are not realizing their fullest potential, especially when it comes to their online presence.”
Deriving its name from the global coordinates of its offices at the HuB in downtown Sarasota (82.546º W longitude, 27.333º N latitude) on the Gulf Coast of Florida, 82 West has more than 20 years experience in advertising, marketing and film & video production.
