What We Do

We Are Strategists & We Design with Purpose

At Sharpen Creative we love designing brands, marketing campaigns, and websites for Maryland businesses and those nationwide.

Although we work with business owners at any stage of their business, our favorite place to start is with the branding, specifically the logo and coordinating visual elements. Branding is so much more than logo design and we work with clients to design all parts of their branding and whatever is needed for their marketing efforts.

The right brand narrative has the power to increase the impact of your business. Our objective is to help you express your brand in ways that reflect your mission and purpose. We’re consultants not only for design and marketing, but often find ways to suggest improved functionality in a business.

Our Purpose

Our Success is Your Success

We don’t design for our portfolio. We don’t define our success by what looks pretty.

Our mission is to help high-achieving business owners take their thriving businesses to new heights. We discover what defines success for you and develop creative strategies to advance your brand.
