Hospice of the Valley has had the privilege of working with the Santy Agency over the last 20 plus years. The Santy team has assisted Hospice of the Valley with many marketing endeavors over the years. Santy has helped us with branding and design ideas as our message has continued to evolve. They have helped us to produce and create our heartfelt television commercials over the last few years, which have been very well received by the community. In addition, they have assisted us with our print and billboard concepts and design. This professional team has demonstrated passion and dedication around our mission and it shines through in their creative ideas.

They have a great understanding of the overall marketing environment including the social media aspects of marketing. Under Dan’s leadership we have had a great working relationship with the Santy Agency and we highly recommend them. If you have any questions, please call me at 602-530-6946.

Hospice of the Valley


I came to Santy looking for help. I had landed a large corporate client with a complex set of communications challenges and opportunities. I needed an advertising agency that was large enough to provide a full range of services; small enough to be nimble and flexible in the delivery mode; creatively diverse enough to align its output to a traditional corporate culture, while still keeping that output fresh and innovative; and sufficiently well-established to earn instant credibility with my client.

From the outset, it was obvious that Santy had all those attributes, but I soon discovered that I had gained much more. The Santy team immediately demonstrated a commitment to understanding my client’s goals and aspirations by attempting to understand the corporate culture, inside and out. I soon came to appreciate that – while I had come looking for a vendor – what I had actually found was a partner; with an ‘art-of-the-possible’ approach to overcoming challenges and developing opportunities. It just doesn’t get much better than that.

We value our close working relationship with Santy Integrated. The employees of Santy go well beyond the normal call of duty. The team is professional and prompt and the service is excellent. No request is too large and they respond quickly to changing project requirements. This team provides great insight and has brought experience to each of the projects. The nature of our business always has our projects on extremely tight deadlines and this has not been a problem for Santy Integrated. They understand the needs and develop a plan that fits both parties well.

Santy Integrated understands what we need to communicate our message to the community. Taking care of customer needs, top quality results and great customer service – this is everything we were looking for in an agency.

I can definitely say that we would recommend Santy Integrated to anyone. They are one of the most insightful and strategic teams with whom I’ve partnered. Our working relationship has been an enriching experience.

Louie Kizis | Director of Marketing
Paradise Bakery & Cafe


I was offered the opportunity to join a struggling Peter Piper Pizza as Chief Marketing Officer a little more than two years ago. The most important decision I had to make at that time was to retain or replace the advertising agency. After careful consideration of our numerous available options, we decided to switch our account to Santy Integrated, which has turned out to be a fantastic decision. We basically chose Santy Integrated for two main reasons. The first was because, unlike many agencies who claim to understand brand strategy yet really specialize only in advertising, Santy Integrated understands brand strategy and the requirements to correctly manage brands to achieve their full potential. The second reason was that they listen carefully and challenge us respectfully in order that together we achieve our objectives. They’ve been a great strategic partner and have already helped us achieve our highest weekly Average Unit Volume/AUV of comparable store revenues in our brand’s thirty-eight year history as part of a still unbroken streak of ten consecutive four-week periods of comparable store revenue growth. If you’re looking for an agency partner to help you achieve and exceed your objectives in this very challenging business environment, you really need to look no farther than Santy Integrated. You’ll be happy with your decision to work with them.

During this time she produced large scale press conferences, implemented grand opening campaigns and secured day-to-day media coverage for her list of clients. In a typical day, she'll write a handful of press releases, coordinate an event, secure a broadcast segment, and oh yeah, she can land a double axel.

On weekdays, Audrey’s penchant for sharing her adventures is a big benefit to our clients in the social media realm, as she’s always finding fresh new ways to get the word out.

Paola Flores

Jr. Designer

Design was more or less an accident for Paola, but it certainly turned out to be a happy one for us. Growing up, she was convinced she was destined for a career in medicine or law – until she happened to drop into an open house hosted by the Art Institute of Phoenix. She left so inspired to “create” that she decided to ditch science and criminal law for colors and fonts. Clearly, Paola isn’t afraid to try something outside her comfort zone, which is why she’s a perfect fit for Santy and our clients.
