About the agency:

EBBING Branding + Design is a creative agency that builds great brand stories and designs some of the most compelling brand identities and product packaging.

Our branding agency 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.

While our agency works in a wide variety of industries, we have a distinct focus on craft beer, wine, spirits and natural foods. 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, in the Cargo District. The office is 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. A new Bespoke coffee shop as well as a beer/wine bottle shop are under construction across the street.

 

 

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.
— Eric Smith | Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at Odell Brewing Co.
