Agency Background

Rowland Creative was founded in 2008 by Dan Rowland in State College, Pennsylvania. After more than 15 years of award-winning service and collaboration, the firm closed its doors permanently in 2023. The team was made up of accomplished employees whose combined expertise supported a variety of marketing and creative services for about 25-40 clients/entities each year. Historically, the portfolio was made up of B2B, non-profit, and higher education clients—ranging from startups to global technology companies and major universities. We offered a full range of services including strategy, brand, web, digital, print, and campaigns.
