Our Story

Sutter Group is a full-service creative agency specializing in branding and marketing. Our clients really appreciate the wisdom that we’ve gained in our more than three decades of experience designing, developing and maintaining branded websites and applications. We’re not a mega-agency with more clients than bandwidth and attention to serve them, nor are we an upstart agency. Sutter Group combines the quality and talent of a big agency with the level of service and care of a small business. Our clients are various Fortune 500 companies, automotive industry groups, non-profit organizations, and lobbyist groups. These technology leaders need an expert in cutting-edge technology to craft their web presence, ensure it performs, and get it into production quickly and effectively. That’s where Sutter Group comes in.
