Each time a client presents me with a problem or objective, I see the beginning of a mini-adventure. As your creative partner, I believe my job is to get beyond expected solutions, into the land of, "What else can we do with this?" or "How can this do more?" or even "Maybe this could be amazing." I believe in sound strategy plus the element of surprise. 

Your customers want to connect to brands that are meaningful and human. They want to feel something. They want to be part of stuff that matters. They want to learn, grow and get better at the things they do. They want to have fun. For you, it's about remembering to offer your audience something of real human value. More than a transaction, you're forming a relationship with these good people. I can help you do that.

Studio Dooley is me, Jeff, often along with my trusted creative collaborators. We're located in Portland, Oregon. You can work with me individually, or with a team built specifically around your opportunity. Either way, expect to work with creative, account, strategy and digital pros deep in experience and practiced in craft.

If you've ever found yourself saying any of the following, we might be for you:

"I'm looking for someone who understands the importance of Brand in everything."

"I'm a bit lost in the typical ad agency's layers, processes and staff turnover."

"I deal in projects, not long term contracts."

"I want to communicate with the people that will do the actual work."

"Where'd all the creative, hard working freelancers go?"

"This thing simply needs to kick ass."

Any of these sound familiar? We should chat. Go ahead and send an email!
