About Us

More Than Normal

Our Vision

At Normal Bear Media, our vision is to hone in on what really matters to our clients—to simplify and disrupt the marketing landscape and enable them to reach their full potential.

How? We enrich every brand we touch. And while our name might be Normal, we turn that word on its head, using what others consider “normal” marketing as nothing more than a stepping stone to what’s next. 

We strengthen and enhance every brand we work with.

Our Values

Client Success:

Putting The Client First, Even In Our Core Values. Everything that we do begins with a focus on client success. When our clients succeed, the rest falls into place. Successful clients are happy clients, and happy clients are more fun to work with. It’s not enough to just do great work; we aim to celebrate what we can accomplish together!

Respect:

Trusting Each Other, Challenging The Status Quo. We’re all on the same team and it’s a really, really great team. Individually, we’re capable of more than we think, and together, there’s almost nothing we can’t accomplish. We believe in one another, but we also believe that we can make each other better. Every day is a challenge to do just that.

Redefining Normal:

At Normal Bear, we believe that what is normal today always has the potential to be irrelevant tomorrow. Instead of directing our clients to what everyone else does, we attempt to create a new normal, and create success metrics that make sense to each individual business.

It Can Always Be Better:

We believe that it is never good enough. The world, technology, marketing and available tools change daily, and therefor we are always looking for a better way to do business, both internally as well as for and with our clients. Staying on the leading edge and accepting that we must continually improve!

Our Clients

[...]"
