We’re Registered Creative.

Some of our time is spent building brands, developing content, crafting print pieces, and constructing websites. All of our time is spent solving specific problems.

Our Work

Design is not a veneer. We design for more than just looks. At Registered Creative, design is solving problems, devising strategies, and execution. This applies to every project—for brand, print, or screen.

For Brand

Your brand is important. The stronger the brand, the more you’ll stand out. We craft and cultivate brands—existing or new, big or small, corporate or unconventional—so our clients have the best shot at achieving their goals.

For Print

Whether your needs are traditional, large scale, or creative, we’re here to help. We’re well versed in ecological impact our decisions make and spec our jobs with an eye to minimize environmental impact whenever possible. We send our finished designs to our trustworthy vendors that provide quality work, competitive pricing, and great turnaround.

For Screen

Websites are both a representation of your brand and a means of achieving your goals. Websites we build meet the most up-to-date standards while maintaining a professional, user-friendly face. We also design for non-website screen work, including mobile applications, presentations, motion graphics and online advertising.

The Team

Registered Creative was founded by David Spratte and Mark Branly, who bring more than 30 years of creative talent and professional experience to our clients.


David Spratte

Creative Director

David has been working in design and photography for more than 20 years. When he’s not sweating the details at Registered, he’s likely working on his really old house, shooting personal projects or racing cars. Obviously not all at once.


Mark Branly

Web Design & Development

Mark has been working in web design and development for over 15 years. When he’s not hashing things out for clients at Registered Creative, you’ll find him behind the lens or sampling Durham’s latest and greatest food and cocktail offerings.


Emily Combs


Emily brings a great blend of identity, print and web design experience, along with the print production chops to shepherd those designs from proof to press. When she’s not designing, you can probably find her under a pile of cats.


Laura Ghantous

Office Manager

Laura expertly handles all the behind-the-scenes details that keep Registered Creative up and running. When she’s not managing the office, you’ll find Laura at her massage therapy practice, or instructing Nia classes.
