Who We Are
Owl’s Head Solutions is an award-winning, full-service, 100% virtual branding, design, and development agency. We’re differentiated by our outstanding level of creativity and our belief that when form and function are conceived and implemented together, the result is a solution that’s vastly greater than the sum of its parts. While we have a special interest in and a deep background in healthcare, public health, and pharma, our portfolio and roster of clients is broadly based, and—if we do say so ourselves—pretty impressive. Because we work 100% remotely—and have throughout our 10+ year history—we have a unique and seamless approach to teamwork, intra-company communications, and collaboration. We are small but mighty—and growing fast, which offers lots of opportunities for those who work with us. We’re known for the way we tackle multi-faceted, multi-dimensional, and sometimes multi-national projects with elegant solutions and superb customer service, building client relationships that often last for years.
