About Us

It’s our clients’ reviews and testimonials–not winning top awards–that we’re most proud of.

…entirely professional, courteous and helpful

The website looks awesome! Thanks so much for everyone’s hard work. My experience with First Looks has been entirely professional, courteous and helpful, aside from a beautiful and creative website.

…the best investment I made in my business.

“I can confidently say that choosing First Looks Agency to create my website and branding was the best investment I made in my business. Right from the start, Courtney and Chris’s process of intensive and inquisitive questions really got to the heart of what I wanted my brand to be, and they delivered a logo and website that continues to “Wow” visitors to the site, and turning them into clients. A few months after the site went live, I made back my investment and secured loyal clientele which include Fortune 500 companies. Almost 3 years later, we have a first page ranking on Google and are ready for an update to include a new product line, an extensive “Press” page and a client list that includes global brands. If you want a website with results, go with First Looks Agency. They are top notch!”

…brilliant

“The branding you did for Creditek was always my favorite and retained a fresh look even after a number of years, and what you did for the health care subsidiary was brilliant.”

John Metzger

…very creative, inspiring, and a pleasure to work with.

“In 1994, Lloyd’s in Somerville launched an exciting new home furnishing’s concept business. After interviewing many agencies, we selected Courtney and his great team at First Looks. They interpreted our business model and creatively launched us to immediate success. A great concept is only good if it is marketed exceptionally. The First Look’s Team help put us on the map. They are very creative, inspiring, and a pleasure to work with. Our relationship has been a wonderful twenty year run.”

Jeff Silverman
President, LLOYD’S Furniture

…would not hesitate to recommend First Looks Agency.

“First Looks has been one of our go-to agencies for direct response print ads. They understand the dynamics behind creating effective and efficient direct response concepts. I would not hesitate to recommend First Looks Agency.”

You guys did an incredible job…

“WOW, looks fantastic! You guys did an incredible job of putting that all together and somehow making me look professional. I’m sure that wasn’t easy. This motivates me to move. Thank you for doing such a great job!”

…creative, efficient, and first-class

From day one, First Looks came in prepared with a host of fantastic ideas. First Looks did not just come in with a one size fits all approach, as did other prospective companies. We have been thoroughly impressed with the research they conducted into our field, as a whole. The staff also took their time to learn about our individual company and our specific goals and objectives. They crafted an excellent marketing plan that fit our needs and our budget. I would describe the staff at First Looks as creative, efficient, and first-class. I am confident that our branding and marketing is stronger due to FirstLooks.

…help grow existing businesses and attract thousands.

“Under heavy competition, First Looks created a rebranding campaign that positioned the City of Asbury Park to successfully recruit many new businesses, help grow existing businesses and attract thousands of new visitors to support those businesses.”

…their passion and efforts to bring our concept to life

“Courtney and his team at First Looks Agency are true artists in their profession of marketing.  They instilled the core elements (name, logo, website and packaging) needed  to take our basic idea and launch our new brand.

Their passion and efforts to bring our concept to life always made us feel like they are a part of the family rather than just an outside company hired to aid our development.  We truly appreciate their consistent efforts in addressing all of our questions and concerns in a diligent and reassuring manner.  We look forward to having them a part of the Glacier Fresh family for many, many, many more years to come!!!”

…I would absolutely want to use First Looks in the future.

“I worked with First Looks Agency for several years on direct mail packages. They were an excellent partner for this work. Their dedication to understanding our products, channel, past successes and failures and budget/production constraints prior to starting any work with us set them up for success and ensured that they pieces they presented were appropriate for our business model. We had numerous successful packages with them over the course of our partnership. Their winning packages helped grow our business and their winning messaging was incorporated into other channels, such as inward application scripts. I have moved on to another area that does not impact direct response marketing, but if I were to move back to that type of role I would absolutely want to use First Looks in the future.”

…one of the best relationships we have added!

“First Looks has been amazing and one of the best relationships we have added to our business! They have helped us create consistency within our marketing brand. We have been able to launch a successful outdoor campaign and website. We have 100% confidence they will deliver and will continue to be creative and launch successful campaigns for us in the future.”

…added inspiration and professional consultation.

“Inspiration comes in many forms. It begins with creativity and an idea and most importantly, belief in the idea. The professionals at First Looks joined my team and took the creativity and added inspiration and professional consultation, design, style, placement and promotion.”

…nothing but positive feedback.

“I very much wanted to reach out and commend you and your team! I was very pleased with the whole professional experience from start to finish. All hold ups were on our end and your patience was much appreciated. I am very pleased with the end product. Having had a couple of these processes under my belt in my professional career I have nothing but positive feedback for First Looks Agency team members, especially Chris, and work product. Thank you!”
