About Morehead Marketing
As an Ohio and West Virginia advertising agency, Morehead Marketing, has been Launching Great Brands since 1995, actually 345 to be precise, but who’s counting? Our expertise in marketing, graphic design, web design, and commercial photography improves brands, gets them noticed, and helps them grow — with several becoming international leaders in their respective industries. In the beginning our main focus was on branding and print production, but as the internet took off, we were on the leading edge of website design and development of e-commerce sites. With the help of new identities, strategic marketing, and advertising campaigns from Morehead Marketing, several key clients in “Ohio’s Amish Country,” experienced dramatic growth, leading the region to become Ohio’s top tourist destination.
In addition to regional clients in Ohio and West Virginia, Morehead Marketing has developed new brands for national and international accounts. We have worked with companies of all sizes in tourism, retail, cabinetry, furniture, building construction, food manufacturing, hospitality, scientific, biomedical, product manufacturing, banking, oil & gas, education, healthcare, and service markets.
Morehead Marketing's commercial photography studio is a two-time winner of the KelbyOne PhotoshopWorld Guru Award for Photo Compositing 2021 and Photo Retouching 2019 at the International PhotoshopWorld event in Orlando, FL and Grand Prize Winner for the Crave International Food Photography Award 2021. Morehead Marketing's commercial photography and landscape photography fine art images have been featured in several leading magazines: Southern Living Magazine, Early American Life, Woodcraft Magazine, Ohio Magazine, Wonderful West Virginia, West Virginia Medical Journal, Columbus Monthly, Cleveland Magazine, and West Virginia Living.
Similarly honored from entries submitted by our print vendors and clients, in the graphic arts printing industry, Morehead Marketing has twice received a Gold Print Excellence Award in the Catalogs Product category by the Printing Industries of America for Schrocks of Walnut Creek cabinetry catalogs. Morehead Marketing has won several Gold, Silver and Bronze HealthcareADAwards and Aster Awards for excellence in Healthcare Marketing.
Commercial Photo Studio
After out-growing both of our Marietta, Ohio design studios, we designed and built our current office near Parkersburg, West Virginia in 2006. With more space, we expanded our services with the addition of a complete commercial photography studio. Our commercial photography studio features two full-time photographers and stylists, wireless studio lighting, space to create full room sets or multiple sets for product photography, and has a kitchen for food styling. We match G7 international color press proofing standards for our specializations in room photography, architectural photography, product photography, model photography, lifestyle action photography and food photography.
