Based on our proven expertise in the Marine Industry, venerated offshore boatbuilder Yellowfin partnered with us in 2021 to help articulate the brand they had organically built for the last 23 years.
Together, we examined every dimension of what they did, from product development and engineering to the ownership engagement and real-world applications, ultimately crafting a brand platform based on their legacy of helping people achieve a deeper level of experiences and connections on the water. This brand platform will impact every possible executional touchpoint, including outward facing marketing messages, boat show presence (design, messaging, events), the brand’s digital/social presence, owner’s events, and internal communications (even Human Resources training).

New York Blood Center Enterprises Teams up with Markham Yard to Teach a New Generation How Easy it is to Give Blood
This marketing campaign will run in NYBCe’s regional markets across the country, including New York, Delaware, Missouri and Kansas
NEW YORK June 14, 2021: New York Blood Center Enterprises (NYBCe) has selected Markham Yard after a review for a regional campaign to bolster blood donation efforts in the post-COVID era.
The Markham Yard team will craft an integrated campaign to show a new generation of potential donors not only how important it is to adopt good blood donation habits, but how easy it can be. The campaign begins today to coincide with World Blood Donor Day, running regionally in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Kansas, Minnesota and Nebraska.
Andrea Cefarelli, Senior Executive Director, Recruitment and Marketing at NYBCe notes, “The Markham Yard team did a great job of translating the data into a strategic and creative campaign that is unconventional, engaging and impactful. We look forward to collaborating with them to bring this to life in order to augment our critically-needed supply of blood and plasma across the country.”
“There is no substitute for human blood. This life-giving essence is in short supply, partially because the median age of blood donors is rising steadily, and partially because COVID has sharply curtailed the ability to donate. We look forward to working with the NYBCe team to show a new generation how easy it is to help,” said Markham Cronin, Founding Partner at Markham Yard.
Billings are undisclosed, and work will begin to appear in each market in early summer of this year.

Welcome to Markham Yard.
A yard is where things are dreamt up, planned, designed and built. Where ideas are translated into craftsmanship. Where things are cared for, maintained and upgraded. A defined space of our very own where talents of many kinds intersect to launch great things.
YARD is a reflection of our deeper focus on making great things. In the sausage factory of marketing, a lot of energy is often focused on the process at the expense of what comes out the other end. But the fact is, nothing we do matters unless something that makes a difference gets made. And that’s what happens in the YARD.
As I often tell our team, the one constant in our business is change, and change is opportunity. And today we have in front of us just such an opportunity. We have been on a journey for the last sixteen years on which we have been lucky to work with a broad variety of collaborators, clients, partners and talents. And this journey, at its best, has been one of optimization- Ever striving to be better tomorrow than we were today. So in this, we’d like to share some news: On Monday, April 19, Markham & Stein will become Markham Yard.
Our name has changed. But our heart is still in the same place.
