Our Story

We weren’t always Yebo—back in 1988, we went by Barber Martin & Associates. Honest work, BMA forged relationships and a roster that set great groundwork. Then, 30-something years later, the world changed, our address changed, our five-year plan changed, so we changed.

An inside job imagined up by some of the industry’s brightest, Yebo is our rebirth, hyperbolically, our evolution, affectionately. So, you could say we’re kind of old and kind of new. We have the knowledge and expertise to pull off a big task with ease, yet we’re new enough to go where others haven’t (or won’t).

We Know, What’s with the Name?

Like our CEO, the word Yebo is Southern African. It’s a greeting, but not the formal kind reserved for small talk. Yebo slaps you on the back and asks you how you’ve been, really. We use it when a coworker fills us in on their weekend escapades and when we receive any new assignment. Simply put, Yebo is how we greet life.


Our name is a double affirmative. Cordially stoked. Respectfully candid. Unequivocally supportive.


Individuality plus input makes for one sturdy hive. We’re busy bees led by a Queen.


Work works when it impacts. Be it media or creative, we always ask and answer “why.”


Our not-so-secret sauce of full-service stuff.
