Marketing and Design Group


Music written and performed by Phil Shugar and Jack Patton

Who We Are

We are passionate consumers. We are vigilant ambassadors who tirelessly endorse the brands we love. Best of all, we’ve found a way to turn our obsession with brands into our day job. We strive to deeply understand the connection between the brand and the consumer — to explore the art and science behind every aspect of the brand relationship. We realize that connection is unique for every brand, so we approach every client with a fresh perspective yet with a common language. We tell corporate stories. We speak brand.


The Founders

In 2006, Susan and Jeffrey Britton combined their 20 years of marketing experience to build a new type of creative branding group.

Our Imaginative Team

It takes all kinds. Our core team is a diverse mix of creative and analytical talents. All are creative in their own right — within and outside their fields of expertise. We believe in working with people who have passion.

Our Creative Directors

Some agencies reserve their best talent for their largest clients. Even though Britton is a boutique agency, we offer world-class talent to all of our clients — large and small. We have handpicked five high-level creative directors, each with diverse experience and a dedicated support team, to fit a variety of industries and markets.

Current Trends

We participate annually in international trend seminars for fashion, product design and color, as well as technology. Not only do we stay on top of the trends, but we also provide many of our clients with color-palette research.

Understanding Women


 Women know how to stick together. We congregate, help each other out, and … we talk. Women know the brands that “get” them and those that don’t, the products that work and the ones that fall short. Smart companies understand this. The days of yell it and sell it are over, and companies now have to show it and prove it. At Britton Marketing & Design Group, we “get” it. Success with women means speaking one-on-one. It means starting a conversation. We know women are wary of campaigns that expect them to fall in line and do what they’re told. They want only the best for themselves and their families. They want a better world, a better life. As a woman — as one of the many who are talking, congregating, speculating — this is what I’ve found to be true of myself.
