We find creative solutions, tell stories,
build relationships and craft ideas.
We transform brands and sometimes
even transform lives. We get results.
And, along the way, we have a lot of fun.

we are a maker of things

We believe in the power of real communication. That great design and thoughtful copy can engage the eye, touch the heart, reach the mind and persuade people to act. It’s the power to make lightning strike and to make limits well, limitless.

We’re designers and writers, dreamers and doers. Optimists and idealists. No egos or attitude- just talented people, a passion for the business and the drive to do something that matters. Something that will – move people to action, change attitudes, and maybe even change the world. Just ask our clients and they’ll vouch for our insane work ethic, our track record of results and our ability to never take ourselves too seriously.

We don’t have the largest stable of creative minds – just the best ones. We’re small enough to be able to move quickly, act strategically and stay one step ahead of the big guys. Why do you think we wear sneakers?

This spirit sits at the heart of what we do.

Our Work Speaks For Itself

We listen. Then we respond with fresh ideas, creative solutions that build relationships and measureable results that make our clients look a little better and a whole lot smarter than the competition. Go ahead, call it advertising. But it’s really about people. It’s creating trust and finding solutions that drive real change. Our clients sing our praises, but we think our work speaks for itself.

Take a look.

Combining top brands with their exclusive patented sole, the company needed to reach decision makers in hotels, restaurants, hospitals and anywhere there’s wet slick surfaces. And they have.

GETTING INTO WOMEN’S MINDS

We helped launch this new women’s shoe brand with more than just a product name, packaging, collateral, a give-back program and a website. But it was our creation of a brand persona that all women could relate to that really brought it all together. Meet Lila.

HOLY REDEEMER HOSPITAL

A BRAND EVOLUTION

When Holy Redeemer Hospital wanted to refresh their brand expression and make it work harder, they came to us. We offered them both digital and print design solutions. From maternity and neonatal services, to end-of-life care and every stage of life in between, Holy Redeemer’s services focus on your total well-being.

They started as clients...now they're friends.

What We Do

We work with you to tell your story in a way that’s true, compelling and smart. Beyond words and pictures, we find creative solutions and try to cause a bit of a commotion. We get companies noticed, give them a voice and uncover their distinct personality.

It’s our business and we’re proud of it.

  • "I have launched both the Journeys and the SureGrip brands with Carliss. Journeys is now at 850 stores and the SureGrip sales are increasing every quarter. Just a coincidence? Think again."
    Bret Moore, President/SureGrip
  • “CUBICLES” IS A FOUR LETTER WORD

    We believe that an inspiring space inspires great work. And that where you work is a reflection of how you work. Our space is a two-story brick carriage house with an open floor plan, exposed brick, a couple of fireplaces and comfortable meeting places where the staff and our clients feel right at home.

    We work hard and we love every minute of it. Because at TMG we know that a happy agency makes happy clients. And that’s why we’re in business. So we do everything we can to make every day at work a good day. Dogs are welcome, so is the occasional baby. We’re flexible and we’re human. We know that not every creative inspiration comes between 9 and 5. So sometimes we work late. And, if sometimes we leave early to go watch our kid’s ball game or go for a bike ride, it’s okay. We have lives.

    The truth is, we think pretty highly of the folks who work here at TMG. So we try to create an environment that’s rewarding, challenging and one that will keep them coming back every morning to do more great work and have more fun.

    Come visit. You’ll wish you worked here, too.

    Director of Client Services

    WORK

    Trafficking tax seminar ads for Merrill Lynch was not the glamorous ad career Ali Hayes had envisioned while watching Melrose Place. Since then, her ability to stay calm under pressure and to keep others focused have launched her into positions in the largest agencies in both Philadelphia and Baltimore where her impressive roster of clients included nearly every business vertical and media channel. Now, at TMG, working at a more human scale, Ali is responsible for all aspects of client relations, strategic planning and the office March Madness bracket.

    LIFE

    When she’s not schmoozing clients or crafting late night proposals, Ali is an obsessive party planner who is renowned for orchestrating over the top birthday parties for her daughter.
