About Wilmington Design Company

"What's the Purpose?"

It’s a question my staff hears daily. It drives every project, every campaign, and every meeting.

That’s because twenty years ago, I was in your shoes. I built a manufacturing company from the ground up, and we were on the shelves of 4,000 retailers nationwide. As our business grew, I reached out to agencies to outsource marketing and design projects. But I found the same issues with every agency:

  1. I wasn’t getting enough value. None of the agencies were taking the time to learn about my business and make sure their tactics would have a maximum impact on our growth. Any ROI was minimal or fleeting.


  2. They nickel-and-dimed me. Hidden charges, unexpected expenses, and unmet expectations were the norm, instead of the exception. They weren’t doing business the way I would do business.

Faced with spending too much on subpar work or doing it ourselves, I hired my own experts. We started helping friends’ businesses with design projects, which quickly turned into having clients of our own. What started as an alternative to hiring an agency turned into running my own agency. In 2003, I sold my manufacturing business to focus solely on Wilmington Design Company.

Now on the other side of the table, I never forget my roots, and I never let my team forget what our purpose is: To help businesses like yours grow.
