With Debra’s extensive experience in media and marketing management, she brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to our already talented team at Dark Horse. The future is brighter than ever as we continue to innovate and deliver top-notch solutions for our clients.

Some Words From Our Clients

Linda and her team took our company to the next level! Her dedication and expertise are top-notch! Highly recommend!

Wonderful agency to work with, first class.

Evelyn Reumuth Layton, Patio Connection

The best ad agency in AZ! Experienced, talented, and honest. Dark Horse achieves results quickly & efficiently. Thanks Linda!

Andrea Leesta,

Dark Horse Media is reliable, innovative and understands the latest trends in public relations. A leader in their industry, Dark Horse, gave my small company the same attention they provide their largest clients. Thank you, Linda for making my company a winner!

Andrea Davis,

I highly recommend this fantastic ad agency to any business that wants to grow. I have worked in Advertising for over 25 years including, TV, Radio and some time at an Advertising agency in Las Vegas.  For the last 10 years, I have lived my passion helping rescue and shelter animals with animal welfare publications and began The Tucson Dog magazine in July of 2017.  I was not as familiar with the media in Tucson so I needed help navigating that area for my business. I met and was very impressed with Linda and her staff so we hired Dark Horse Media to help us navigate the Tucson market.  I cannot say enough good things about Linda and her team.

Ann H.,

 5 star review!

Dark Horse Media always gets our company’s content produced and distributed creatively and efficiently. They help every step of the way, and help keep us on task to meet deadlines. We produce a wide array of marketing materials through Dark Horse, and they never fail to help us reach our marketing goals.

Ivan R.,
Linda and her team at Dark Horse Media do a top rate job. They are dedicated to their clients and so giving of their time and energy. In terms of media coordination, they do a fantastic job. In the past four years, they have helped us to coordinate over 50 nonprofit organizations who have seen a significant increase in their tax credit related gifts over that time.
As talented as they are in their field, Linda and her team are equally as dedicated to the Tucson community and its success.
