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.

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.
