A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US

OrangeYouGlad is Brooklyn’s freshest creative agency.  The company was founded in 2002 by Mary DeMichele, Monica Hsu and Tammy Duncan. Our mission was to create the kind of company we always wanted to work for, doing compelling projects we could be proud of, and partnering with lovely clients who we enjoy collaborating with. And all with a good work/life balance. 

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to always crush it creatively (on behalf of our clients!) We dig deep for that unique, creative, unexpected and expertly crafted strategic and visual solution that takes our client’s brand to the next level.

OUR DREAM PROJECT

Our dream project* is to be able to work with our clients on their brand identity and provide all the goodies that go along with it including social media strategy and management, website design, in-store packaging, event posters, annual reports, t-shirts, acceptance speeches, and more. Our second favorite thing is ice cream**. Our third favorite thing is to continue to work with the brands we’ve created (or nurtured)—growing with them as their business grows. *If you already have a much loved brand, no worries, you can still be our dream project! We’ll adopt your brand as our own. **If you don’t have ice cream for us, that’s okay, too; we’ll still work with you.

SOUND GOOD?

We’d love to make your project sparkle. Drop us a note or give us a buzz (718.596-9415). Let’s make something together!

Our Team

Tammy Duncan

While commonly known as partner, creative director, designer, project manager and other such titles for OrangeYouGlad, Tammy is perhaps most known for her love of general hijinx and bad puns. She is happy that her two daughters are primed to become her partners in crime. The three of them are likely cooking up some harebrained scheme involving elaborate packaging and a donut cart or something at this very moment.

She also has over 20 years of web and print design experience, has won several awards, has judged several others, and plays the guitar and drums (not very well, but with tons of enthusiasm).

Aimee Pong

Aimee is a senior designer at OrangeYouGlad. An ex-intern, she leveled up at other NY design studios and attended a lot of OYG holiday parties before rejoining the team.

Her life ambition is to visit them all.

Constance Leonard

At the age of four, Connie created her first logo by carving her name into the family coffee table. Since then, she’s delved deep into the world of creative design, from interactive storefronts on the streets of SoHo to TV ads filmed with vintage cameras. When she isn’t making things, Connie is probably singing karaoke or having a deviled egg party.

Jimmy Boom

Being a failed cloning experiment, Jimmy Boom spent many years trapped in Jimmy Neutron’s basement. The box he lived in was comfy, but grey.  The day he escaped, Jimmy promised himself to have a life full of color and cute chachkis. Jumping to the present day, he’s the newest member of the OYG team. Jimmy’s work area is bigger than your average box and he still can’t believe it.  He daydreams about tea parties with donuts and bears.

Founding partner of OrangeYouGlad – Some say she is banned from five US states and Rarotonga and that she can stop traffic with a piercing glare.
