Spot Communications creative marketing strategy teams

Local Roots. Global Ambitions

Saint Paul, Minnesota may not be where most people start their search for strategic and creative marketing partners, but you’ll quickly learn it’s a city full of pleasant surprises. We’ve made our name on disrupting expectations and exceeding them.

and Operated

Patty’s career in advertising goes back—way back—to a time of drafting tables, markers and galleys of type. She got her start at Kosmo Carlson in St. Paul and spent the bulk of her career in creative departments around the Twin Cities. In the 90’s, she took a detour to pioneer “remote working” when her kids were young.

Through the years, Patty has tested out almost every job in advertising—designer, creative director, sales, accounts, and strategy. After hitting a glass ceiling (or several), she decided to take one last gamble and opened Spot in 2013.
