The creative branding agency

built for business.



The House: What we do



Establishing a brand and working hard to maintain its identity can be a daunting task for small and emerging businesses.  At the Brandhouse, we work with you on creating a name, devising a brand strategy (identifying your target audience, your goals and positioning), designing how your brand looks, writing your brand narrative, and setting style guidelines to ensure your branding is consistent.


A unique brand identity is essential if a company wants to compete successfully in the marketplace.  Our award-winning team of designers marry the narrative with the visual.  Our artistic expertise and love of type come together to create your brand across all customer touchpoints.


Whether it’s developing a marketing plan, creating an ad campaign, or handling the dozens of media reps that come knocking at your door, we manage all of your marketing needs.  When it comes to creating a marketing strategy, we don’t believe in throwing a bunch of options at the wall and seeing what sticks.  We provide proven thinking and strategy to help you effectively communicate your message and reach your target audience.


The tech-savvy designers and strategists at Novella Brandhouse navigate your business through the maze of interactive options available in today’s complex digital world.  Not only do we set you on the right path, but we offer continued support long after your website and digital communications are up and running.


We believe in the importance of social media strategy for every business, whether you are a company of five or 500.  As small businesses become more sophisticated, a solid brand strategy and marketing plan that includes social media is imperative in order to compete in an increasingly competitive marketplace.  Your audience not only expects to see you on social media, but actively part of the conversation.


Thinking strategically about your brand is a way to level the playing field with the competition and perhaps give you a leg up.  Simply because you don’t have as many resources as the big guys, doesn’t mean you can’t be resourceful.  We are your special teams, filling in the gaps of marketing expertise on your team.

How We Work With You

As a full-service advertising firm, we develop, design and implement campaigns and strategies across all platforms.


You are launching a company and need a killer brand identity.  Your website is screaming 2010 and needs updating for responsive, mobile viewing.  Your social media presence is, to put it politely, lackluster.  Novella has you covered.  We get to know you and your business, your target audience, your goals and aspirations, and then we dive in and get to work.  When you need us, we’re ready to jump.


Novella functions as your complete, in-house marketing department.  And your design agency and web firm.  Oh, and your social media and event planners.  No need to juggle a multitude of freelancers and consultants – we are up-to-date with your brand and its goals.  This is not an old school, agency of record, fluff money for martinis agreement.  This is focused, nimble, strategic and creative support – at a price compared to what you would pay one marketing executive.
