Hawley Martin was a cowboy who knew how to brand a whole lot more than cattle. But that’s not the only reason his sons, ad legends David and Steve, named our firm after him. He was their mentor and their inspiration.

A Tip of the Hat to the Man Who Gave Us Our Start.

Hawley Martin once said, “It is never too late to be what you might have been.” We begin every day with that thought. What does that mean to you? It means the drive to realize your brand’s full potential is what keeps us seeking ever more powerful ways to take your brand to the top. We, and potentially you, have Hawley Martin to thank for that. Hawley embodies for us an American spirit of ingenuity, adventure, and honesty. A native of New York, he studied at the University of Arizona. His first job after college was as the foreman of a ranch near Tucson. After he spent a few years branding cattle, Hawley moved back East where he switched to branding products. The Land O’Lakes Indian is just one example of his many creations.

Don’t let a potential sidekick tell you awareness is all you need to succeed. You need the right kind of awareness. You need a brand that stands for something people feel good about, one that creates an expectation of performance in their hearts and minds.
