Unique Opportunity:

Own your own brand and design business.

Trade your experience and knowledge for partnership.

About Us

Barthelmes Brand is a branding and design micro agency with offices in Columbus, Ohio and Southwest Florida and 30 years of brand development and graphic design experience. My business is primarily a solo studio servicing a combination of corporate, small businesses and other creative agencies. I've been successful with Barthelmes Brand for the past 12 years but am making this move for several reasons:

  • Business development has never been my strength or passion. I thrive at delivering great creative ideas and designs, managing projects and leading creative teams
  • I miss the teamwork and energy that comes form working side by side with others
  • I want to build something bigger than myself and to create something of value that can be sold to my partner in future retirement

I’m seeking an equity partner who can develop business and service clients for a more robust version of Barthelmes Brand or a new agency.

I am seeking a self-starting and successful sales professional with the vision and ability to manage and grow a start-up business. More importantly, I’m looking for an individual to partner long term and share in the rewards of partnership.

I am not seeking a financial investment. The right partner will be trading their experience and knowledge for equity in the new business.


Location of New Business

I currently operate out of Columbus, Ohio and Punta Gorda Florida, but see this new business head-quartered in Florida. That said, I don't think it means that the partner need be located there.
