Who We Are

Quatrain was founded by Emily and Marshall, friends and creative experts who combined forces to create the anti-agency agency: a firm solely dedicated to creating fantastic content, and to having a heck of a good time while doing so. Together with our band of rowdy writers and designers, we help giant brands like Liberty Mutual, Experian, and Ryder tell their stories. We also love working with smaller organizations like the Student Conservation Association, HelioCampus, and ADDitude magazine. Big or small, our clients love us for our quality, responsiveness, and peace-of-mind.
