Strategic. Creative. Solutions.

Strategic solutions are not notable if they lack creativity, and creative solutions aren't useful if they're not strategic. At The Creative Department, we are focused on providing both — laser sharp strategy and cutting edge creativity — to arrive at results that help our clients succeed and grow. We believe our clients deserve solutions that are both strategic and creative. Work that works, by design.

Our clients see us as their creative arm, not just their agency.

SMG has partnered with The Creative Department since 2005. As we’ve grown — and our asks have changed over the years — one thing has never changed: the sense of pride and ownership the team at The Creative Department demonstrates with our business. We tend to have tight timelines and even tighter budgets. It’s a bonus that we like each other because we work with them day in and day out on a revolving list of projects. From brand identity, brand standards, product launches, and events to product collateral and email creative. No matter what we dream up, they deliver what we need, when we need it — like an extension of our team. It’s an extremely valuable partnership for us.
