The Founders

Anthony and Andrew, the founders and principals of Unik Advertising, have over 40-years’ combined experience in education marketing. Their intention in founding the company was to combine superior options for youth-marketers with seasoned experience and deep understanding of online marketing — while providing excellent client service.
