“Consider it Done!”

 Sincerely, Your Director of Special Projects 

What is a director of Special Projects?

Every business has needs that fall outside the everyday responsibilities of its staff. That’s where we come in. Adashmore acts as an extension of your team throughout the duration of a specific project, adding a unique skillset and extra capacity only when you need it. 

A

Process Improvement

Know it could be better; not sure where to start? Adashmore digs into the problem to identify areas for improvement and oversees implementation. 

Viability Research

Figure out what it would take to pull off that idea and get help determining if it even makes sense for your team. 

Big Event Coordination

From organizing everything you need for the big trade show to developing and managing your own promotional event.

Vendor Management

Make sure you get what you want and need. Adashmore serves as a go-between for marketing vendor selection and management.

Team Alignment

Sales and Marketing. Two words that are often used together but rarely work well together. Adashmore helps align teams and improve performance.

Customer Relationships

A happy customer keeps buying and refers new business. Identify and implement ways to improve your relationships with customers.

Something else on your to-do list?

We don’t have a one-size-fits-all approach to our clients or the projects we take on. It comes down to really understanding the situation and determining if we’re part of the solution. Reach out to see if our unique skillset and passion for efficiently solving problems are the right fit for your business.

 Founded as a design and marketing agency in 2010, Adashmore Creative expanded over time into a full service branding agency. We evolved with the needs of our customers and shifts in the marketplace. Today, Adashmore Creative serves as an outsourced CMO and COO for select customers.
