Clever Agency Earns Accolades, Adds Clients

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Clever, a Youngstown agency that describes itself as a trio of branding, marketing and digital creatives, expanded its client roster in 2023 and earned accolades.

Clever kicked off 2023 by winning six American Advertising Federation of Akron American Advertising Awards.

“We take great pride in the work we produce for our clients and it’s always an honor to be recognized by our peers,” says Whitney Burd, one of the three co-founders. 

Clever was named the agency of record for Fishers Foods in Summit County and Take That Step, an initiative to address social determinants of health in Mahoning County.

“None of what we are able to create would be possible without the relationships we’ve built with our clients,” says Tony Marr, co-founder.

Digital marketing again dominated much of Clever’s work with websites developed for MinuteMD, Amble Health, Struthers Unleashed, Engage! Cleveland, Take That Step, the Ohio Small Business Development Center at YSU and Spread Hope.

“Our goal is to build on our successes, learn from our experiences and strengthen our weaknesses to make this year even better,” says co-founder Adrienne Sabo.
