About Us

Home » About Us

Brown Creative Group is a leading inbound marketing and design agency located in the historic West End of Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

We’re good at lots of things, especially design and marketing. And we’re particularly skilled at something missing in many agencies—listening. And listening always starts with you.

  • What are your biggest marketing challenges?
  • What has (or hasn’t) worked for you in the past? 
  • What are your sales goals for the next quarter? The year?
  • What would meeting (or exceeding) those goals do for your business?

Because when it comes down to it, design and marketing are really about solving problems. And before we can solve your problems, we must define the challenges, determine the approach and execute the plan.

That’s essentially what we do. We see ourselves as an extension of your marketing team (and in some cases, we are the marketing team). We work to understand your business, opportunities and culture.

We have experience in a variety of industries including construction, manufacturing, health care, e-commerce and professional services. 

We’ve been helping companies with their branding, web design and marketing for the past 19 years. In fact, a few of those first clients are still clients even today. 

And as our client, you get the personal attention and service that you deserve.

That’s our promise.

“I worked with Brown Creative Group to redesign my corporate website and marketing collateral. My main objectives were to find a partner with the necessary creative chops, the technical expertise to design and build a modern website, and the people skills to listen and understand my needs yet push-back appropriately and contribute ideas and original thinking (not be “order-takers”). They exceeded my expectations on all three criteria. I enjoyed working with them and am thrilled with the results!”

Neil & Co have a great creative eye and have been willing to work elbow to elbow with me on projects where I want a lot of input but also run on their with projects that I just don't have time for.
