About us:
EBBING Branding + Design exists to help our clients win the hearts of their customers. We do this by building great brand stories and designing some of the most compelling logos, packaging, print and digital materials in the market. Our branding studio is small and young, but rising. Founder and creative director, Matt Ebbing, is a veteran of numerous creative agencies in Colorado, Oregon, New Zealand and North Carolina, and taught Art Direction at the University of Colorado.

85% of our work is building brands and designing packaging for food and beverage businesses, with a focus on craft beer, wine and spirits. The style of our work is eclectic; strategy and storytelling drives our work, not trends or personal styles.

Our office is on the edge of downtown Wilmington, North Carolina, in the new Cargo District. It's a 5 minute bike ride to the heart of downtown, and a 10 minute drive to the beach. Food trucks park here every Friday, and some of the best BBQ in town is 50 feet away.

WHAT WE ARE: Creative as hell, hard workers, great clients with super fun projects, strategic in how we approach building brands, cool little office, passionate about art/design/storytelling, small but in position to grow a bit, in a surf town.

WHAT WE ARE NOT: a big fancy agency in a big fancy office, driven by personal style, chasing money, surf bums.

HOW TO APPLY: Email your resume and a PDF portfolio of your work examples (including at least two projects showing sketches through final) to Email Matt.

 

What our clients say:

The creative direction Matt helped foster was a launching pad of unprecedented growth for Odell Brewing, driven primarily by our new packaging and brand development that continues to define and cultivate our customer engagement.
