G. Morty and The Makers is a branding and advertising company. We are based in Wausau, Wisconsin and serve clients all over the country. Founded by Gerald Mortensen, WE combine decades of advertising and branding experience with a nimble, fleet-of-foot entrepreneurial spirit.

As our name suggests, we like to make things. Namely, ideas.

Ideas that are born from the right kind of collaboration. Where a brand’s story becomes our story. When a brand’s needs become our needs. We seek opportunities to apply our proven methods of developing authentic stories. Ones that are worth sharing. Ones that are worth hearing. And most importantly, stories that motivate action. Go.
