Now and then we had a hope that if we lived and were good, God would permit us to be pirates – Mark Twain


Today, we’re excited to announce the official launch of Hook & Blade, a digital marketing and advertising agency based in Tampa, Florida. Founded by Mark Teague and Andy Morris, Hook & Blade offers marketing and creative services for any organization looking for a creative spark and collaborative relationship with their marketing partner. We provide a range of services that are tailored to fit your business goals.


Hook & Blade is built on senior level digital marketing expertise and the idea of crowdsourcing for the best creative work. While we cover all areas of marketing, we’re not art directors, photographers, designers or developers. Our community of talented creatives, The Crew, allows us to tap into a group of people with a variety of talents when we need them. The crowdsourcing model gives partners more options for their creative work with more inspired talent at a lesser cost than a traditional agency.


Why the name Hook & Blade? We believe in the pirate’s mentality of taking what you want (only in the business sense) and applying that same belief for our partners. If you want more traffic, we’ll go get it. If you want more leads, we’ll take them. If you want market share, it’s there for the taking. We’ll bring a bold, confident approach to marketing strategy for you. In addition, we wanted to have a connection to the rich pirate history of our adopted home of Tampa.


Please take a few minutes to check out our launch video and learn more about Hook & Blade. We would love to hear from you about how we can help your business achieve success.
