MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DeepSleep Studio, the Miami-based creative agency behind some of the most innovative brands, celebrates 10 years of producing award-winning campaigns and cutting-edge brand design. Marking the evolution of the agency, DeepSleep Studio has added public relations to a robust menu of offerings, which includes graphic design, branding, web development, social media, video production and motion graphics.
Founded by Alex Martinez, an innovative graphic designer influenced by urban art, DeepSleep has earned a reputation for delivering effective, award-winning design that cuts through the clutter. In less than 10 years, DeepSleep has earned nearly 20 awards for groundbreaking work. The agency’s accolades include: Communicator Award in 2017 for creative content and effective marketing of the Mariquitas Chips brand; Emmy Award in 2016 for Special Event Coverage of Emerge Americas; Webby Award in 2015 for UI Design for the Miami Beach Centennial; in 2014, an Emmy Award for Special Events Coverage of Miami Music Week at the SLS, a Telly Award for Outdoor Video Billboard at the MGM Grand Façade for Hakkasan Las Vegas and for Regional TV Commercial for Live Nation’s Big Guava Festival.
After 10 years of producing award-winning branding and design work, DeepSleep is adding public relations services to its extensive portfolio. Public relations will be led by Mabel De Beunza and Paula Gomez, hospitality PR veterans with a combined 25 years of experience. They first joined forces in-house representing Fontainebleau Miami Beach. Their clients have also included Trump National Doral, and Time Out Market Miami.
“As the lines continue to blur between public relations, social, digital and marketing, we understood that to stay ahead of the curve and be a valuable resource, we needed to bring multi-faceted expert-led solutions under one roof,” said De Beunza. “We’ve always prided ourselves on offering clients results-driven public relations plans that shift the course of consciousness and impact the bottom line, and will continue doing so while engaging in full-service projects as DeepSleep.”
“The marketing, advertising and PR industries are evolving more rapidly than ever, and to be competitive, we have to stay tuned to market needs and trends. As we celebrate our 10th anniversary, we have to think about where we want to be in the next 10 years,” said Martinez. “Our clients are looking for someone they can grow their business with, and we offer clients a winning formula of experience plus engagement, delivering the results they expect from Deep.”
Name brands like Marriott, JetBlue, Complex Magazine, Food Network, Plan Do See and Live Nation have entrusted DeepSleep’s in-house team to develop design-driven campaigns and produce attention-grabbing content. Likewise, local brands like Perez Art Museum Miami and Miami Dolphins have counted on DeepSleep for everything from mobile media solutions to the brand’s physical and online presence to artistic photography and video.
One of DeepSleep’s most notable projects is Irie Weekend, South Florida’s most buzz-worthy events of the year, and has developed strategy, content creation and creative design for nearly 10 years. DeepSleep has also done remarkable work for the 1Hotel, the Stanton, eMerge Americas and the Mariquitas Chips brand.
Since adding public relations to the agency’s list of services, DeepSleep has acquired an impressive repertoire of clients, including the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau, Collection Suites and Time Out Market Miami.
DeepSleep was founded when Martinez, a fine arts student with an interest in street art, designed flyers for Miami’s top nightclubs. While Martinez was growing anxious for the next challenge, a recession changed the media landscape, transforming the future of communications. While brands were opting for more affordable digital solutions, Jorge Marquez, another talented local designer with a solid visual effects background, suggested the duo invest their time and energy specializing in the up-and-coming digital media market.
“We filled a need in the market where few companies were specializing, or even focusing on. We figured if we started from the beginning of the digital media trend, and while businesses were still struggling due to the recession, our company could only go up,” said Marquez, Partner/DeepSleep Studio.
