Share Article

Immersed in a data-driven, digital world, the creative marketing agency founders pause and celebrate 10 Years, attributing success to the entrepreneurial and charitable spirit, culture and dedication of its team.

The Arizona marketing and communications agency celebrated, with its patrons and influencers, 10 successful years at the Hotel Valley Ho Skyline Rooftop on Wednesday, March 27. The evening was dedicated to the team and the partnerships with clients ranging from Fortune 100 companies to local start-ups in industries including high-tech, consumer packaged goods, travel and hospitality as well as residential and commercial real estate.

Ideas Collide Marketing Communications (ICMC) started in 2005 with Matthew Clyde, Chief Strategist and Founder, who followed the philosophy, “You can’t love your life if you don’t love your work” and began pursuing his dream to start a marketing communications agency and creative studio that put team members first while solving clients’ business challenges.

“I’m very proud to see our team reach this milestone,” Clyde said. “The secret that makes this agency continually succeed involves the passionate, entrepreneurial spirit of our team and it shows in their work. We relentlessly pursue every opportunity and all carry a desire to create amazing work.”

Ideas Collide launched with a few select clients that today remain central to the agency roster.

“Maintaining relationships with these key clients now for 10 years,” shared agency Co-Founder, Rebecca Clyde, “demonstrates the dedication of our team and the impact we have generated on their marketing results.”

Through mostly word-of-mouth, the creative, marketing agency is proud to work with a diverse set of over 30 clients globally, all from the creative studio in the digital desert in Scottsdale, Arizona. The agency just hired its 30th employee and will add 6 additional team members. The agency will also expand its office space over the course of the next four months.

Ideas Collide made an impact in growing jobs and creative opportunities in Arizona, served as a thought-leader and innovator in the marketing and advertising industry, developed an award-winning, dynamic company culture and dedicated thousands of hours annually and hundreds-of-thousands of dollars in donations through the ICMC Gives Back initiative dedicated to improving the local community.

At the 10 year anniversary celebration, Ideas Collide donated funds to the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation including $7,500 and an additional $2,500 in toys and gifts to benefit children and families at the hospital during their stay.

“We are so grateful for the thoughtful gift made by Ideas Collide during their anniversary celebration. They have clearly made philanthropy part of the culture of their workplace - something that always starts with the leadership of an organization," said Steve Schnall, Vice President and Chief Development Officer of the Phoenix Children's Hospital Foundation. "They are setting a wonderful example of philanthropy for our community, and we wish our friends at Ideas Collide many years of continued success."

Ideas Collide plans to continue supporting community projects and initiatives as the community involvement inspires the team’s work.

“Investing in our community and team is essential to what we do; we find inspiration to give back to the community and invest in the future from building creative solutions for clients,” Matthew Clyde said. “Giving and investing delivers the positive results and energy we see at our agency. We are excited to carry our mission and vision forward toward another amazing 10 years. ”
