Who we are

Novak Birch is an integrated marketing communications firm in Baltimore, Maryland. Since 1987, we’ve built longstanding partnerships with clients and delivered solutions that get results.

So what makes us different? For starters, we work in a huge, 100+ year-old renovated warehouse with a pool table in the kitchen, a (friendly) pack of dogs, and lively Nerf gun battles every day. Let’s just say our workspace is pretty conducive to creativity.

We offer:

Get the full-service, strategic marketing and design/build capabilities of a large agency, plus the personal attention of a boutique firm. While each of our clients has a project manager, they also have access to the entire team. This collaborative model enables us to efficiently deliver marketing communications that work for you.

We take a big-picture approach to marketing, taking the time to understand you and your audiences, working together to develop a strategic plan, and then creating innovative tools that make an impact.

From branding to exhibits, our breadth of services is unique in the region. With a full carpentry and metal fabrication shop, we take the concepts we generate with you and turn them into tangible solutions. If you dream it, we can build it—producing inspired, cohesive materials that engage your audiences and inspire action.

Our team of 26 creative rock stars has cross-discipline expertise. (One example—our project managers have design backgrounds.) This gives you versatile know-how that crosses the usual departmental silos, resulting in thoughtful, well-informed solutions.

Just because we complete a project doesn’t mean we’re finished. We build partnerships, helping clients develop long-term strategies to elevate their brands and advance their goals.

How can we help you get to the next level?

Want to enhance your brand? Inspire target audiences?

We can help

After 30+ years of service, we don’t use the term “partnership” lightly. We value our partnerships—big, small, and everything in between. Our clients give us creative opportunities to leave a local and global impact on a wide spectrum of industries.

Our Approach

We take a collaborative approach to every project, becoming an extension of your team—learning who you are and where you want to be. Then, we map a strategy to get there, with synchronized solutions that generate measurable results.

Our approach is based on four proven phases:

Tell us where you’ve been, where you are, and where you want to be. Who are your target audiences? We’ll talk to them, too. All so we can position you for growth while meeting their needs.

Informed by this research, we’ll develop a plan that outlines smart, strategic recommendations to meet your goals.

This is where we put the pedal to the metal, designing, writing, and producing marketing tools that make an impact.

Using benchmarks we determine at the onset of each project, we’ll evaluate how well your marketing materials are performing and make changes, if necessary, to maximize their effectiveness.
