It’s your brand, but we’ll grow it together. Combining the right amount of creativity and innovation, with the right medium. Bringing in the project on budget, and strategy; producing the right response from the right people. Basically, your success will be our success.

ADMAKI ROLL

We know we’re a small agency, and we like it. This way, instead of spending our time lost in a sea of cubicles, searching for someone we’ll probably never find, we collaborate. Bounce ideas, push boundaries, and do great work. Because, in the end, who cares how many people sit in the office if the work can’t stand on its own.

MICHELLE SCHUSTER WEB DEVELOPER

Born in Vancouver but raised in Calgary, Michelle is a little bit city, a little bit country and looks forward to the one week a year she’s allowed – nay, expected – to wear her cowboy boots. She earned a diploma in Software Development at SAIT but owes most of her working knowledge to the fine people at Shaw Communications. After almost 10 years at Shaw, building web products such as Video on Demand and Shaw Go WiFi, Michelle finally decided to strike out on her own to meet new companies and build new things. From golf discount apps to video mapping and beyond, she works to broaden her development horizons one project at a time. She may only be a part-time addition to the AdMaki team, but as they say: less is more.

LINDA SCHRAMM MEDIA PLANNER / BUYER

With over 34 years experience meshing media planning with marketing strategy and creative execution, Linda has developed media strategies for local, national, and international campaigns. Most memorable, though, are her planning and executions of unique media buys including airplane banners over Calgary and the first interior wall decal on Calgary’s LRT. Her client list is extensive; from the University of Calgary to Saskatchewan Teacher’s Federation, more restaurants than you could think to eat at, financial services, automotive, government, industrial, tourism, and even other media companies. She is that good and AdMaki is lucky to have her on our team. Without her, our award-winning ads would not see the light of day.
