Meet Creosote.

This is a place where the researcher’s mind meets the writer’s heart. Where strategic thought meets design brilliance. Where courage meets accountability. Where marketing intelligence meets marketplace generalizations with a punch in the gut. And where your ambitions can actually meet your budget.

Creosote Affects is a national, full-service branding, marketing, research, consulting and creative services firm specializing in education. We’ve researched, planned and implemented strategies that have delivered never-before-seen results for institutions of all kinds. Our agency is headquartered at the crossroads of Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, near the Catoctin Mountains in the college town of Emmitsburg, Maryland.

We believe consumers are people, not targets.
