We're a creative agency.
The best ideas bring people together. We started Counsel Creative to match great people with a team that can bring their brand to life. Though grounded in brand development, website design and video production, our mission is building relationsips that last and helping those friends do what they do best.
We're not a typical creative agency.
And you're not just a client.
If you’re looking for a famous marketing agency, an account executive and a full, over-worked staff, that’s not us. We're actually kind of careful about who we partner with, because once we do, you're family. Counsel Creative came about to provide a more personal creative experience for meaningful brands. One that's more relationship than "client services."
What's in it for you? No middle man. Lower costs. Fair pricing. Nice people.
NO MIDDLE MAN
You'll talk directly
to us, the owners
Throughout the process, you'll talk directly to us, the owners. Rachel will personally coordinate your project and Kenny will be your creative lead. We're directly invested in your success, your budget and your deadlines.
Keeps your costs
down and support
Once we get your vision, we grab a few of our friends to help make it happen. Having a "collective" of creative partners, rather than employees, keeps your costs down and supports small businesses in and out of Chattanooga. Not to mention you get a team custom built for your project.
Your money goes
towards your project
We keep things lean and simple so that we can keep our speed up and our pricing fair to both parties. We believe in paying our team a fair rate, but we've also cut or reduced a lot of typical overhead expenses, like a dedicated office, so that more of your money goes directly toward your project.
We want to work
with nice people
As we said, we have a bad habit of making our clients family. And not the kind you avoid until Thanksgiving. We want to work with nice people, who also value kindness and honesty in a working relationship.
Who We've Worked With
We love working with businesses of any size. But here are a few friends you might recognize. Ready to see some examples?
LEIF RAMSEY + CREATIVE DIRECTOR & CEO + PATHFINDER FILMS
"I would highly recommend working with Counsel Creative on any creative project. They are both excellent at their craft and a joy to work with. We tasked them with a difficult assignment: rebranding our company with a new visual identity that our clients could show to stakeholders and have the stakeholders say, “You made a great choice of vendor. I’m really confident in investing our marketing budget with Pathfinder Films.” Counsel Creative took our vague goal and ran with it. They guided us through a process that clarified how we want our prospects to feel by unpacking how colors, shapes, fonts, and symbols shape perception. At each step Counsel Creative over-delivered. They brought three unique solutions for our rebrand. Each approach had a distinct voice, and all three options were presented with potential applications of how the brand could be applied in the wild. That level of detail really helped us picture the merits of each approach. During the revisions process they went beyond what was expected, making sure that the final product was one that we’d still love in 10 or 20 years.
BRIDGETT MASSENGILL + EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR + THRIVE 2055
"Counsel Creative took what could have been a very dry, technical map project and turned it into a beautiful, elegant product showcasing the inspirational vision behind the details. Before engaging in creative work, they first took the time to fully understand the meaning and purpose of our project to then fuel their passion and drive their creativity. In doing so, they exhibited a professional recipe that lead to our project’s ultimate success. I would recommend Counsel Creative to any company looking to enhance their messaging through creative and concisely poised graphics."
WILLIAM FLATT + FOUNDING PARTNER + FLATT & DALE, P.C.
"Counsel Creative exceeded our expectations, timely met all milestones, was responsive to all inquiries, and provided superior products, including our website, branding, letterheads, and announcement blasts. I just finished a phone call with a legal provider and rater, who attempted to sell us website services along with the other services that we need. The vendor shockingly stated, “we've never seen website rated as high; completely secure; completely mobile friendly; and you obviously don’t need our assistance. We highly recommend Counsel Creative."
LUCKY RAMSEY + EXECUTIVE PRODUCER + PATHFINDER FILMS
“There is no one we trust more with our creative work than the husband and wife duo at Counsel Creative. Kenny and Rachel not only do a great job shaping your vision and providing excellent creative but make you feel like family. They absolutely have our recommendation.”
ZEB CHANDLER + MANAGING PARTNER + CHANDLER & CHANDLER LAW GROUP
"Long story short, these professionals are creative, responsive, and caring about each project they undertake. They thoroughly exceeded our firms expectations. Seeking first to understand our firm's philosophy and unique value proposition, they then brought components of style, branding, and logo balance that we would have never considered into an excellent visual translation of our firms message, brand, and identity. Be careful, they may make you look better than you expect!"
WILLIAM BLOM + OWNER + CALL UP SPORTS
"We have worked with Counsel Creative on several branding projects recently. They never fail to impress with their vision and quality or work. We would not hesitate to recommend Counsel Creative to anyone looking for the branding assistance or any other service they provide."
TRIPP STANFORD + BOARD MEMBER + YOUNG PROFESSIONALS OF CHATTANOOGA
"Counsel Creative did a complete brand redesign for our local non-profit. I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. They took everything we wanted and crafted it into a symbol that speaks to exactly what we want our brand to communicate to the local Chattanooga audience. I can also recommend Kenny and his team at Counsel Creative to do great web design work and video production."
