About Us

Britton Design is based in Evanston Illinois and serves businesses all over the U.S and Canada. As a branding and design firm, we help our clients communicate and present their most important products and services in a professional, memorable and engaging way. We are customer centric. Our work influences how people perceive products, services and companies. We transform the intangible assets of a company, like values and personality into tangible objects that people easily understand, desire and act on.

We work with:

Directors of Marketing in companies who need additional creative leadership to develop effective marketing materials.

Brand Managers who need a creative source to deliver professional results withing their program budgets.

Marketing Consultants and their clients to develop Marketing Strategies into executable brand realities.

Owners of companies and businesses who need to brand or re-brand products, services and sometimes their entire company.

Agencies who need top level thinking and expertise in specific segments.

Britton Design teams with business owners and marketers who have great products and services but need professional design and branding expertise to make those products and services understood and loved by others.

We create marketing materials and build brands that connect with our client’s customers. We help to position and grow companies with creative solutions built on solid insight.

When it comes to creative work, too many cooks spoil the broth. In fact in nearly every example of truly ground breaking creative work, in music, writing, movie scripts etc, the vision is in the minds and hands of a few talented players. For us, working in a small group frees us to concentrate on the solution.

Our size also gives us the unique opportunity to meld with our clients on a more personal level. We can more easily shed the formal roles of agency/client and become colleagues working on a marketing problem together. Sometimes we are brought on for one project. Sometimes we act as our client’s creative department. Other times we are used as a trusted consultant. But no matter the way, our clients have found it refreshing to work with talent that’s fast, nimble and able to solve their tough assignments with experience.

We have deep and diverse experience, lots of it, in all kinds of business disciplines. We can quickly assess the right path for your marketing success based on our accumulated eclectic knowledge. As a partner, we help you discover the true need and the road to its solution. We’ve been around enough to know what questions to ask, and what road not to take. This saves time and money in ways that our clients see as a refreshing change from how they have done business in the past.
