Top 5 Reasons You Should Work With Us
1 We ask, listen and understand
We begin each project by gaining a solid understanding of who you are, what you do and why you do it. This helps us create strategic solutions that communicate the right messages and express your unique brand identity.
2 We collaborate with clients
Good design doesn’t come in a flash of inspiration. It’s a collaborative process of discovery that takes patience, experience, and communication. We involve our clients every step of the way, incorporating feedback at each stage until the design is finalized.
3 We do the work
We work together on projects. You will see the same faces from the first initial contact to the completion of the project. We do not have a sales team, and we only take on projects that fit within our skillsets.
4 We’ve been around the block
With nearly 50 years of combined experience, you can bet we’ve seen and heard just about everything. We know what works and what doesn’t work. Our fingers are conditioned to hit the right buttons without even thinking. We are organized, fast, and efficient.
5 We like each other
We have no rivalries, no hierarchy — there are no bad eggs at Brooktown. We really do enjoy coming to work everyday. We respect each other, support each other and even humor each other.

I’ve worked with Brooktown on a few web development projects. They design the graphics, and I create the back end, such as a database or form processing. They are great to work with. We have good communication back and forth on projects and we make an excellent team. Brooklyn has a friendly, upbeat personality which makes it that much better. I hope to work on more projects with Brooktown in the future.
