Creative that Converts.

They say, dead men tell no tales…

Lucky for you, we’re not dead, and love to tell EPIC tales for small businesses like yours! 

Topsail Creative is a creative agency focused on storytelling for small businesses. We’ll help you build a memorable brand, connect with your customers, and keep your business sailing on. 

Are you standing out?

"If you want to stand out from the crowd, give them a reason not to forget you."
- Sir Richard Branson -

More than a logo...

"Marketing is no longer about the stuff that you make, but the stories you tell"
- Seth Godin -

Where are you going?

"People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
- Maya Angelou -

What doYOU need we help with?

Branding is storytelling

Creative & Copywriting

The TRUE difference between your business and your competition is YOU. 

This is where the magic really happens. We’ll work with you to develop creative content that will help you gain attention and build creditability within your market. Attention leads to connection, and THAT’S where the building begins.

When we start working together, one of our very first tasks will be clearly defining the following sentence: 

I’m building ____for ____ because ____. 


Social & Email Marketing

“A group really only needs 2 things to be considered a tribe: a shared interest and away to communicate.” – Seth Godin

Social Media will help you share your voice, email will build a community, and a newsletter will sail your business forward. At Topsail Creative, we work with the best automation and curation tools to help you consistently build out your community AND deepen those relationships with thoughtful and impactful email marketing.


Web Design & Landing Pages

“Your website is the only place you truly own online.”

Your website is the home base for your company, or should I say home port. Free of any algorithmic surprises, this is THE place you want to have your customers visit.

We’ll craft a responsive (mobile, tablet, or desktop) website that clearly and authentically tells people who you are, and what you can help them with. Period.

Marketing & Promo Materials 

“Make it simple, make it memorable.”

Marketing and promotional materials crafted to help you share your services and connect with your customers: 

Sales Flyers
Business Cards
Stickers and Posters
Coffee Cups
And more!…

Meet the Captain

Hey, it’s Dave! I’m the founder and creative behind Topsail. With a 15 year career in sales and marketing, I love bringing empathy and creativity to each client we work with. With a passion for small businesses, I’m excited to work with and help brands expand their reach, share stories that matter most, and turn their customers into “true fans”. 

On the personal side, I’m married to my amazing wife, Kristin, for 12 years running, and have the blessing of being a dad to 3 little gremlins and 1 fur ball named Ziggy! 

When not hanging out in the marketing world, I love to draw weekly cartoons at, enjoy sneaking out for a round of golf, snowboarding, hiking + geocaching (Yo Ho), and harnessing my inner tween and cruising on my skateboard. 

Fun Fact: by definition, the topsail is a sail that is set above another sail; the position of the topsails well above the sea ensure they received a steady breeze, even if the seas are rough!
