Think you need a big beefy budget and full-service
ad agency to get big bold ideas that get results?

Think again.

Since 1999, Brand+Aid has delivered fresh,
compelling, standout creative work for everything
from satellite radio to social-media sites. From rotisserie
chicken to therapy dogs. From safe-sex awareness
to the world’s largest order of nuns.

Whether it’s creating a new brand identity or a
brand new ad campaign, put a Brand+Aid on it:
For a print or interactive campaign.
Radio or TV spots. Website or web video.
Brand+Aid works less like an ad firm sitting across
the boardroom table and more like your very own
senior creative team that’s part of the staff.

Past and present clients who entrust Brand+Aid
include corporations like the CDC, Discovery
Communications, Verisign, XM Radio, JBG Developers,
Gannett, Booz Allen Hamilton and HCA Healthcare.
But we’re just as proud of work for smaller clients
like the National Fish & Wildlife Foundation, Food &
Friends, Whitman-Walker Health, People Animals Love
and the Sisters of Mercy. We also partner with large
PR/communications firms in the DC-Baltimore
market to provide backend creative development.

But enough already with the adjectives.
We’d much rather be judged by our ads.
Feel free to poke around our site and let us
know if we can help out with anything.
