We are a marketing, branding and visual design agency based in Cleveland, Ohio.

Adept Creative is built on a process of consistent refinement.

We use design and strategic thinking to help companies acquire and delight customers. We begin every problem with an open mind. 

Our process is agile.

Our Approach

At Adept Creative, we use an Agile approach to all of our projects. We break down projects into small peices called iterations. Each iteration is reviewed and critqued. Insights are gained and are used to determine the next step of the project. This allows us to make adjustments, when needed, and become more efficient with each project sprint.

Sometimes issues arise thought the course of the project, remaining agile allows us to make necessary adjustments that can save resources and, ultimately help deliver a successful project on time and within budget.

Our agile approach also allows us ot become more efficient with our workflows while creating a more collaborative work environment for our teams.

 

Our client experience

We will take seriously our professional obligation to begin at the beginning, and we will never put our clients or ourselves in the position where we are prescribing solutions without first fully diagnosing the client’s challenge.

To kick things off, we use a fast paced, user centric, and facilitated framework that defines and prioritizes user needs, creates user journeys, surfaces actionable insights, makes strategic recommendations and produces tangible results that will be deployed.

This is an integral step in our overall process.

Discover Insights -> Define Goals -> Execute Beautifully

Within this process, we follow Agile principles in iterative cycles of ideating, executing, and validating.

The Result?

Effective, beautiful and beloved brands.

Rules of collaboration

In our firm has adopted the following rules of collaboration.

Strategy first. We will agree with the client on the strategy before any creative development begins. We will diagnose, develop and agree upon the appropriate strategy.

Continous reference to strategy. It is the strategy that guides us. We will review the agreed upon strategy before presenting any creative.

Freedom of execution. We welcome the client’s input on the strategy and in exchange we ask to grant us the freedom to explore various ways of executing it. Example: we invite a client to say “That blue isn’t bold enough to deliver on our core value of strength.” But we do not invite a client to say “Make it darker.”

Only we present our work. Whenever our diagnostic findings, strategic recommendations or creative solutions are presented to anyone in our client’s company, it will be personnel from Adept Creative that does so.

We offer an arrary of creative services to IMPROVE YOUR DIGITAL ECOSYSTEM.
