At The Martin Group, great ideas and results really are a group effort. They come from remarkably talented individuals that we form into equally remarkable teams.
Meet Mary Bonomo, an assistant art director on our Creative Team.
Where were you working before Martin Group and in what role?
An associate art director at Partners + Napier and its Vine Design group, the agency’s group dedicated to Constellation Brands.
When were you hired here at TMG?
September 20, 2016. The week after my birthday!
What do you love about working here?
The culture, of both offices and our entire firm. There is strong camaraderie amongst the Rochester team – and we have a second family, in Buffalo. I enjoy getting to work on a large variety of projects, many of which make a difference in Buffalo and Rochester, for example, John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital and Trillium Health.
Give me a line or two about what you spend most of your day doing.
I assist account teams in preparing materials for delivery to our clients, including creative concepting, design, production or whatever the project might entail. And… listening to music – all day long!
What is your favorite thing to do outside of work and on weekends?
I’m usually running or at a concert. I run competitively in half marathons, and roadtrip regularly to see my favorite bands play any and everywhere.
What’s your favorite type of food to eat?
Ice cream, specifically, Bonomo’s Dari Creme, which has been owned and operated by my family for the last 60 years.
Favorite place to travel?
Two hours down the 90 from Rochester to Utica, my hometown and the place where the majority of my family still resides. Also, to those locations across the country where high school and college friends live or my favorite bands are playing.
