The Southern Creative team is a collaboration of talented marketing creatives based in Rome, Georgia.  We dedicate ourselves to becoming business partners with our clients, providing them with continued support even after the last invoice has been paid. We see every client as an ongoing relationship, so we support our brands as they grow and expand – and we grow with them.

We believe business is all about relationships, so we choose to stay small. Our clients can expect a personal approach that fosters a true partnership. You are not just another name on our client list.

Being a boutique marketing agency means our response time and work turnaround can be quicker than larger agencies who may have have a backlog of work on deck. We make it simple for you – one contact, one talented team. Our Creative Director, Kelli Barnes is leading you at every stage – providing direct access to an experienced creative for advice and guidance throughout.


We offer our clients a unique mix of collaborative marketing services. We have packages for medium and small brands as well as nonprofits. We love the entrepreneurial spirit of small business owners and nonprofit pioneers! One of the greatest joys of working with our clients is experiencing the enthusiasm they have for the people they serve. We share that enthusiasm for each and every Southern Creative client. We believe in the products and services they provide and we take great pride in being trusted to tell their story.

Whether you’re just starting out or have an existing business, we can help. We’ve been partnering with clients to establish or expand their brand and online presence for over 10 years now.  We would love to help you find your voice and tell your story in a way that speaks to your ideal customer where they are.
