Adept Creative was founded in 2018.

Adept Creative was founded in 2018 by Mike Robinson after working for 10 years as a freelance marketing and branding expert.

The story continues.

Our Story

Ok so we were founded/rebranded/refocused in 2018. But lets start at the beginning

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

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

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.


Where are we?

We started off in spare bedroom in Akron, Ohio. We are now based out of a spare bedroom in Cleveland, Ohio.

Humble Beginning… but we now have shared studio space and plans to open Adept Creative Cleveland Headquarters in 2022.
