About us

Founders Simone Friend and Beth Johnson came together over 20 years ago with a simple idea: an agency that would treat artists and clients alike with respect, sincerity, and enthusiasm. Today, Friend & Johnson is that agency, remaining one of the most highly regarded creative representatives nationwide.

With longstanding artist and client relationships across advertising, design, and editorial categories, they pride themselves on their collaborative approach and making certain your job is done right, on time, and on budget.

Meanwhile, their diverse roster of illustrators and photographers brings unparalleled creative thinking to every opportunity. So take a look around, find our nearest office and give us a ring. We look forward to hearing from you.

Friend+Johnson is certified as a women's business enterprise by the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
