Adept Creative
Our Story

The Story Begins With An Idea.

From Kent State University to Akron to Cleveland

The story continues.

Our Story

In 2007, Mike Robinson started working with several clients within professional sports, and the music industry.  Offering freelance design, promotions and marketing strategy.

One of his earlier breaks was within the education industry. While consulting with a charter school in Cleveland, Ohio, which at the time had seen some modest growth and decided to expand by opening a second location. Robinson developed and implemented marketing and branding strategies driving enrollment through the roof allowing the school a third location. 

Read the full case study here.

As word began spreading about the quality of his work, more and more companies turned to his agency to help connect with their audience and gain more customers. Though those projects, we were able to expanded our client base while expanding our services along the way.

“Early on we were doing business as Advantage-point Marketing. I felt we had out grown the name, with everything I was creating, hoping to be innovate in the digital marketing space.” – Mike Robinson

Adept Creative was not just a rebrand for his agency, it was a paradigm shift.



Adept Creative was founded in 2017.

Adept Creative was founded in 2017 by Mike Robinson after working for 10 years as a freelance marketing and branding expert.

The story continues.

Where are we?

Today we have a growing client base that consists of regional and local companies, non-profits, schools, sports teams, small business owners and artists. We are continually improving our processes, adding new and innovating capabilities while creating better brand storytelling.

 

Why are you different?

What sets us apart from other agencies is we are built on a process.

From the early years, I had to be both creative and analytical. Offering graphic design services such as concert poster design or album cover artwork to a music artist requirers you to focus on capturing the vision. Developing lead generating marketing strategies for non profits you begin to understanding the intricacies of managing a brand. While working for profession sports I had to build design systems that attract and forces behavior in an immediate way.

And our process is built upon that base.

We expand our services to meet our expanding customer bases needs.
