What We Do


We Tear Down the Walls Between You and Success


Why pay for bricks and mortar? What you really want are ideas!

At Bicknell Creative, you won't find fancy "ad agency" surroundings or the fancy prices and attitudes that often come with them. What you will find is a virtual creative boutique that offers great service, solid experience and compelling creativity packed with IDEAS THAT SELL.

We're Big On Ideas and Our Clients Know It

Companies big and small come to Bicknell Creative because they know we not only make them stand out, we bring in sales.

 Our success is built on the foundation of Marjorie Bicknell's 30-year career as an award-winning copywriter and creative director specializing in direct response and online advertising.

Bicknell Creative has decades of experience in the highly competitive fields of Financial Services, Insurance and Telecommunications. But we also have hands-on experience in 20 other industries as well.

Here are a few of the companies we've worked with:


Chase Manhattan Mortgage
First USA

Harland Clark
Keystone Financial
Northern Central Bank 

American Museum of Natural History
Arts & Business Council of Greater     Philadelphia
Federated Allied Jewish Appeal
Open Stage of Harrisburg

There's Nothing Like Seeing Your Name in Lights!


We like to think our work is pretty good... but you don't have to take our word for it. Over the years, Marjorie Bicknell and Bicknell Creative have won over 30 international, national and regional awards for advertising and direct marketing excellence... and the list continues to grow. Maybe the next award we win will be for you!
