problems

Everyday, we work to solve web and print challenges that our clients face. Your marketing problems become our problems and we wouldn't have it any other way.

We're built on three core values

Established in 1999, Terrapin Art & Design is one of the leading marketing companies in Southern New England. Our company values define who we are now and who we will continue to be in the future...

Building Trust

Terrapin is focused on building lasting relationships based on integrity and respect. We believe that transparency and accountability lead to a stronger team of employees, customers and vendors all working toward a common goal of delivering the greatest product in the end.

Never Stop Learning

The quest for knowledge is undying here at Terrapin. We're never satisfied with the status quo and rely heavily on resourcefulness and adaptability to uncover insightful new ways to tackle problems. When participants can learn and grow from one another, real creativity can flow.

Creative Solutions

Terrapin strives to think "outside of the box". We've found that brainstorming in an environment where every idea is valid can shift perspectives and challenge the norm. The end result is always a solution imbued with energy, humor and passion.

Key players on your marketing team

Think of us as your marketing department! When you hire Team Terrapin, you get seasoned, energetic professionals that are dedicated to marketing your business. Our team members possess a diverse pool of talents & experience which allows us to deliver solutions that meet your needs & budget.

What makes us different?

We're looking to take an active role in your organization

Multi-faceted approach to marketing

Terrapin specializes in a mix of traditional and online marketing. We offer a blend of services that deliver a consistent message to customers both online and off.

Be a decision maker, not a content creator

Without great content, your marketing falls flat. Leave the heavy lifting of copy-writing and photography to our skilled team of professionals.

Marketing, not IT

We understand that marketing challenges are solved with creative ideas, eye-catching design and well developed content, not IT.

Partnering for the long haul

Trust is not given, it's earned. For over 18 years, we've partnered with some of the area's top companies and are thrilled to have shared in their growth.

Terrapin's key partners

In addition to the staff that work within the four walls here, there are a number of people who share Terrapin's vision and are helping to ensure that everything runs smoothly. These people are great local RI partners and have become essential to our company.
