MATSUMOTO & CLAPPERTON is a marketing and advertising firm that offers award-winning creative talent, deep strategic experience, and highly responsive account management in one cost-effective package.
Founded in 2000, we began our crusade in a tiny office resembling a hair salon with two guys named Craig and Ed. Today, we’re a thriving full-service agency in the state’s Top 10, but we choose to keep our friendly small agency feel. Our team includes veteran marketing and advertising professionals who have earned their credentials not just in Hawaii, but also in major advertising markets around the world. We exist because we believe in the power of marketing.
For our age, we are one of Hawaii’s most successful advertising agencies as reported in Pacific Business News. We’ve won 24 first-place awards from the Hawaii Advertising Federation and have also had work selected for the National ADDY‘s show. The recognition includes four Best of Show awards in the past 8 years for print advertising, Best of Show for television advertising, a national award from the Gannett newspaper chain, and recognition from Pacific Business News (American Cities Business Journals) for the best financial institution branding campaign running in their nationwide network of business/trade papers.
The clients we work with also believe in the power of marketing. In fact, they’re part of our team. Together, we create more powerful, more efficient ways to reach and persuade customers. And ultimately, build strong brands that people love.
