Children's Miracle Network


Most non-profit organizations, by their very nature, have a good story to tell. So good, in fact, that many of them can’t be bothered. The truth is the not-for-profit marketplace is extremely competitive and – as we and our clients have discovered time and time again – positioning plays a critical role in success. Donor dollars and resources are not finite and there are a lot of organizations clamoring for their attention. Telling a clear and compelling story leads to understanding. Understanding leads to giving. Our non-profit clients are now some of our favorites not only because their stories are touching and fun to tell, but because at the end of the day we know we’ve done good.

South Florida State College


Our education marketing expertise is centered on community and technical colleges. When we began our work in this academic arena we found a whole lot of sameness. In their quest to be all things to all of their audiences – with a laundry list of degrees and certificates to match – these institutions tend to wind up more bland-ed than branded. With our proven branding process, our youthful creative horsepower, and some of the bravest and most trusting clients to walk these hallowed halls, we have been able to produce some amazing results.

Hilton Head Island


Travel and tourism gave us our start, it’s where we cut our storytelling teeth. Our creativity, capabilities and client list have expanded considerably since those early Marriott Vacation Club days, but destination branding and marketing is still a space we love to inhabit and in which we have done some of our best work.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition


While ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition team was working day and night to make one family’s dream home a reality, World Design Marketing was hard at work behind the scenes designing the theme and promotional materials, organizing fundraisers and increasing community turnout.

Telling a brand story is a collaborative process, one that gets more perfect with practice. Our unique team of senior level marketing strategists and bright young creative minds has been together for twelve years. We like one another. We respect one another. Our work has both rhyme and rhythm. As a result, the brand stories we create are not simply well-told, but fully REALIZED.

We come from everywhere: LA, New York, Boston, New Jersey, Orlando, but our offices are located on Hilton Head Island – great story ideas come naturally here – and in Orlando, Florida, where WDM creator Wayne Johnson spent 14 years building the legendary DISNEY brand and acquiring his passion for the simple beauty of a well-told story. (That’s a little back story.)

Thomas C. Leitzel, Ph. D.

President - South Florida State College

We have benefited from the fresh thinking and creative approach to building our brand. They have helped us differentiate our event and set us apart from the other national Concours events.  The Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival is now considered one of the top events of its kind in the country.  WDM has been a true partner.

Carolyn Vanagel

President - Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours d'Elegance


The Technical College of the Lowcountry has partnered with WDM for many years.  Together, we have won many National Marketing Awards, but most important is that WDM helps us get our message out to the community about TCL and our quality programs.  TCL and WDM…It’s Working.

Nancy H. Weber

Vice President for Student Affairs - Technical College of the Lowcountry

The times WDM produced work for the PILAU Program at TCL, I am always amazed that you ‘get it!’ When we sit down with you to determine our needs, you ask the right questions. I think that’s just one of your core competences, along with your peerless professionalism and your gift for creating superb marketing materials that fit – like hand in glove! For the couple of times the PILAU Program has worked with WDM, you gave us more than we imagined we would get.

Gloria E. Singleton

PILAU Program Manager - Technical College of the Lowcountry


I want to personally thank everyone from the WDM team for the extraordinary efforts put forth on behalf of the ABC-TV Extreme Makeover: Home Edition project. The willingness to step up and help us on this enormous project is a testament to your business and giving back to the community. It was without a doubt, the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’s best marketing and house the show has ever seen!

Owner/President

I can’t thank you enough for the creative work and “branding” that you put together for our new resort - Marriott’s SurfWatch. You were both a joy to work with and a true partner in making SurfWatch happen. While adhering to our company’s print and marketing standards you were able to “raise the bar” and create new, distinctive and rich pieces - exactly what we were looking for. You made our dreams happen!

James P. Hansen

Project Director
Marriott’s SurfWatch


Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!…  …for presenting Rejuvenate Your Brand! at the June 25 Grow Your Business event at the Chamber. Your presentation was upbeat, fun and well received by our members and guests. After reviewing the surveys and speaking with several of the attendees, they wished they had another hour or tow to spend with you on this important topic.

Cyndi Matzick

Executive Vice President
Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce

Thank you so much for designing a most efficient website for the Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce. Your ability to come up with solutions and address challenges without breaking the bank makes our website comparable to tourism organizations with significantly larger budgets. We look forward to working with you again on future marketing and advertising endeavors.
