About Quinn

Since 1969,
We've been innovation.

Agency Of Record.

Trust should not be thrown around lightly. It’s difficult to gain and easy to lose. At QUINN, we strive to achieve trust everyday with our clients and between our clients and their customers. It is the foundation of effective communication.

As a communication company, when trust is created, we can create engaging and lasting messages that will resonate while producing positive results.

Straight from our Employee Handbook, these are our most valued characteristics. We pride ourselves on being not only an efficient company, but a trusted friend to our clients, and a team that communicates first.

Driven By Strategy Since The 60's

QUINN can trace its roots all the way back to the mid-1960’s, when Spokane ad agency Sodeburg and Cleveland was acquired by three of their employees Donna Lipe, Jack Farmer and Gerald Quinn Sr in 1969. Through the remainder of the 20th Century and into the 21st the agency went through several partners and a few name changes, and has seen many trends come and go, but a consistent focus of being ‘driven by strategy’ for all of our clients has been the bedrock of our success in this volatile industry.

Our Goal

Our goal is to give businesses and organizations the competitive edge in their advertising and marketing – online or traditional, through creative and media – formed by insights and data and a strategic approach that looks at the long term opportunity while aware of the importance of results today.
QUINN is a full-service advertising agency. We are seeking partnerships with companies that understand the importance of producing a quality product, and promoting it with strategic marketing and truth in advertising.

Passionate about results, passionate about our clients.

We are a team of professionals who are passionate about developing solutions that engage your customers so that you can meet your business goals. We are also passionate about our clients. While much has changed in the world since its founding in 1969, QUINN’s commitment to transparency, integrity, and a desire to make a difference for our clients has not, and will not change.

Face Of Advertising

Long before “influencer” became the trend, Bonnie Quinn was positioning her clients as the influencers in the marketplace. Through strategic advertising campaigns with effective media plans, QUINN’s clients became the preferred name in the region. As a second-generation owner, Bonnie understands the importance of brand recognition for success and longevity of her clients as well as her own business, QUINN Advertising.

“Success starts with the right strategy. We are driven by strategy but proven by its results. Our strategic process is both thorough and flexible, as to not hold back new opportunities to innovate.”

Bonnie purchased the agency in 2005 from her father Gerald Quinn Sr. Under her leadership, QUINN has earned the title of Best Advertising Agency in the Inland Northwest for over “10-Years in a Row” by Spokane Coeur d’Alene Living Magazine. Additionally, Bonnie has continually been named as one of three top local Businesswomen. Other business leadership awards include the Whatever Girls’ Empowering Women Awards, a faith-based organization committed to growing Christian leadership.

Prior to ownership at QUINN as an Account Supervisor, Bonnie spearheaded many extraordinary success stories. These campaigns range from restaurant, hotel, and auto dealership chains in Seattle, Portland, Boise, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Tucson, Dallas, Denver, Indianapolis, Columbus, Kalispell, Missoula, and Great Falls.

A graduate of the University of Washington with a BA in Business & Communications, Bonnie and has served on many local boards and committees including the Spokane Advertising Federation, Vanessa Behan, and is past-President of the Garland Business District where QUINN calls home. Currently, Bonnie serves as a board member for Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce and Mountain States Policy Center, a new organization committed to promoting good public policy based on free market solutions.

Aside from her personal achievements, Bonnie credits her team of strategists, creative thinkers, designers, marketers, and digital experts, who, guided by her inspiration, make QUINN’s story one of vision, dedication, and promoting excellence in business.

“The bottom line is that the principles of advertising never really change, while methods of delivery are always changing. Many advertising companies have come and gone while QUINN has stayed loyal to the principles that make our clients successful.”

Strategy that gets results.
