About Blackwater

We are a creative branding agency located in Central, Virginia. We love helping clients revitalize brands, launch new ones, solve pesky small business problems and create stunning content that makes others say, “Why didn’t we think of that?”

Blackwater Branding: 10 Years in the Making
In 2003 a group of highly talented college students swore to reunite one
day and start their own business. Late 2015 that vision became a reality
as the Blackwater Branding Agency was formed. Blackwater Branding
allows small to mid size businesses the opportunity to work directly
with a team of highly professional creatives. Through this hands-on
relationship our team members are able to produce stunning visual
marketing content for your business. Blackwater services clients
throughout the United States providing graphic and web design,
copywriting, photography/video production, as well as sound composing
for commercials and film.

SOME OF OUR CLIENTS INCLUDE

Adidas | Aeropostle | Bristol Motor Speedway | Bowen Jewelry | James T. Davis Paint & Design Center | Lyn-Cag | Riverviews Artspace | Thomas Creek Brewery |
Sony Pictures | The Websmith Group

ourgoal

Great visual branding or brand identity happens at the intersection of story and relationship. When the two components come together, they have the ability to attract new customers while making the existing base feel safe and at home. The goal of Blackwater Branding is to  create visual consistency between the identity of your brand and the story/relationship you are sharing with your clientele. –Jawansa Hall

A Special Thank You

So often we can focus on reaching our goals that we unintentionally forget the names of the amazing people that aided in our growth and success. Below are just a few of the special people that without their help, finances, and mentorship, I would not be the creative I am today. Nancy Marion, Stan Webb, Susan Richards, Kimberly Morey, Kim Soerensen, Anthony Andrews, Mike Osei, Debi Tosi, Keith Lee, Derek Cobbs, Eli Harris and the array of family and friends that believed in the vision when it was just napkin sketches. THANK YOU!

Our Services

BRAND IDENTITY
Your brand identity is the face of your business. It represents your company's values, services, ideas and personality. Visually this identity includes your logo, typography, colors, packaging and messaging. Our role as an agency is to be the creative aid in what that will look and feel like for your business. When done correctly, this generates loyalty from your clients, turns employees into brand ambassadors and reinforces the existing reputation of a brand.

AUDIO / SONIC BRANDING
Extend your visual communication with an audio identity. Sonic branding is increasingly becoming a vehicle for conveying a memorable message to targeted consumers, taking advantage of the powerful memory sense of sound. Local advertisers who include a jingle or sound effect with their visual brand are cashing in on the 50/50 rule. 50% of branding is visual, and 50% is audio. Much like a feature film, it takes two to make the magic happen!

WEB & GRAPHIC DESIGN
Your business's image is everything in today’s marketplace. To make things less stressful we offer a one stop shop experience for all your graphic designing needs. From print and web media to logo-design and illustration, we have you covered.

PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEOGRAPHY
From the darkroom to the digital lab there isn't must that this team can't handle. Our photographers have captured everything from blueberry waffles and horse races, to Nascar Events and diamond rings. Each member of The Blackwater Agency has locked in their skill set, bringing over a decade of experience to every project.
