YOUR BRAND IS OUR BRAND
Every project we do is an extension of ourselves. It's our living portfolio. Having a strong fit with our creative partners is key—to lasting and results driven relationships.
A good fit goes both ways.
Yes! You found us, but you are probably also assessing us alongside a number of other options (as you should). To make the assessment process easier on you, we have created a transparent checklist to help you evaluate.
what we are
just a little bit badass
We are clear, direct and love a good adventure. We hold ourselves to a high standard, but also push past our comfort zone to take on challenges that inspire us. We would rather our clients set trends, rather than follow them.
a boutique agency
Black Sheep is a small agency with a carefully vetted network of stable, ongoing partnerships. Our size makes us agile and adaptable, so that we can provide hands on, personalized service. We may be a small team, but we manage large projects, with professionalism, grace and a high quality production value.
YOUR CREATIVE PARTNER
We partner with our clients, which means that we put in the time to fully explore/understand you and your customer’s needs. Our thorough on-boarding approach makes production smooth and efficient.
extremely good VALUE
We aren’t the cheapest solution, but we certainly aren’t the most expensive. We are proud to offer extremely good value, while also working creatively with our clients resources and budgets.
EXPERTS IN BRAND STRATEGY
If everyone performs in their wheelhouse, then everything will run optimally. Which is why we hold ourselves and your team accountable. Together, we will produce exceptional results.
If you can’t comfortably execute your own strategy, then it wasn’t the right strategy in the first place. When we build strategies with you, we do a deep dive to take all variables into account. A strategy is only a theory, unless you can actually use it and test it to get results.
what we aren't
We aren’t ‘yes women’. We take ego out of what we do and see the ‘work’ as the work. We know that it’s easy to be rooted in subjectivity sometime (without realizing it) and we will let you know if there is an alternative solution that is worth your time.
a huge agency
Larger agencies have in-house specialists, which can be limiting in terms of talent, fit and cost (but not always). We bring the right professional in on the right project, and keep costs competitive to larger agencies because we don’t have the overhead.
a set it and forget it solution
We can’t make something from nothing. To be effective, we will need you to be part of your own strategies (otherwise it’s like buying a car and not knowing that you need to get the oil changed). Brand strategy will require your ongoing time, investment & attention.
cheap and cheerful
We won’t try to sell you on bargain basement designs and ‘get rich quick’ promises. We also won’t just sell you what you want—we are not in the same business as 99 Designs. Instead, we will work with you to create what you genuinely need. You really do get what you pay for.
an all in one solution
What we do is an important piece of your business ecosystem, but it’s not the whole enchilada. Your business is unique, and we prefer to capitalize on your strengths and skills, and fit you with the right contractor to fill any gaps that need filling.
We hope that your goals are lofty, but we also know that you will have to take one step at a time to get there. We build a strong foundation, and create stable and measurable growth. Because it’s far less risky to be diligent and thoughtful than to chase shiny objects around.
WE KNOW WHO WE ARE.
' A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others '
We are extremely experienced, highly resourceful and genuinely hard working.
We know that we will never know everything, which is why curiosity is one of our greatest strengths.
' Don't be like the rest of them, darling '
We have developed efficient systems that allow us to innovate beautiful creative works, professionally.
Which sets us apart from most other agencies.
' the world is changed by examples, not opinions '
We are living proof that our methods work.
We have grown exclusively from word of mouth over the past 6 years.
