BERGEY CREATIVE GROUP

ABOUT US

ABOUT US

Strategy, Creativity, Experience and Passion

Bergey Creative Group, is a well established design agency with over 20 years of serving local, regional and national accounts. We are located in Harleysville, PA (just outside Philadelphia) in a renovated chapel from the early 1800’s. Our design and creative are driven by our commitment to listen, process and deliver solutions that extend across a breadth of media.

We have long lasting relationships with our clients for one simple reason: we focus on listening and providing the best creative work and customer service possible. The combination is why we have grown steadily by word of mouth alone.

Some agencies do just print, others do just web… we do both so we can strategically blend all messages and available mediums. This is what allows Bergey Creative Group to be “Your Full-Service Creative Partner.”

Since 1990, Tom Bergey and his team of creative professionals have provided clients with strategic marketing, branding, and innovative campaign development. Over the years, Bergey Creative Group has gained valuable experience and insights into many niches of business – including food, building, auction, retirement and not-for-profit industries, to name a few.
