Kelp is a strategic creative agency. We help organizations grow through expert brand strategy and design. Our approach is thoughtful, collaborative, and rooted in real business goals.

Our Why

We believe there are too many marketing agencies out there that pretend to know your customers better than you do and don’t actually have the technical knowledge or skills to execute a campaign in excellence. We are a team of talented specialists that works with you and your expertise to create the ultimate mashup of strategy and execution for each aspect of a campaign. Meet Kelp.

How We Work

We break down every project in four different parts so that it is easy to understand what to expect along the way, and so you know who is responsible for each phase in the process.

Discovery

The Discovery Phase establishes the answers to a projects most important questions. In this phase Kelp gathers all project level information including: assets, content, strategy, and project end-goals. This information is then used to thoroughly prep the project for the very best solution possible. We believe that without first answering “Why”, we cannot meet the needs of our clients.

Planning

After the project groundwork is laid and understood by all parties, Kelp will use it to construct a production plan. This plan may come in several varieties, depending on the project, but will always serve to express the tactics, techniques or overall style that will be used to craft the final product. This phase of a project makes the “How” clear to both parties; as in, “How are we getting this done?”.

Production

Now that the strategy and production plan have been created and approved, Kelp is ready to move into the full creation and proper application of the project’s deliverable. A tangible product is created to the exact specifications of the approved production plan. The client will review and confirm that the product created matches the production plan.

Deployment

All projects need to be validated and prepped for use. In the Deployment Phase, the goal is to confirm that the created product is positioned as close to the real world as possible. Real applications will be tested and confirmed. Any final assets that need to be consolidated and packaged will be properly handled and prepared for the client and for application.
