George Brymer, Steven Jerzykowski, Amy Thomas and McKenzie Leach feel right at home in their new office space.

In just three short years, George Brymer’s full-service advertising agency, The Creative Block, outgrew its original location. “When we first opened, our initial space worked very well. But as we transitioned from start-up to expansion mode, we became cramped for space,” Brymer reported.
“We also wanted to be in downtown Sylvania and be part of its creative vibe,” offered Amy Thomas, the company’s creative director. “We’ve really enjoyed experiencing the area’s sense of community, even in the short time we have been here,” she added.
“Our clients also like our new space,” Brymer stated. “The office showcases our uniqueness, and everyone seems very comfortable when they’re here. What’s more, it gives our business greater visibility while allowing us room to grow.”
Located in the heart of Main Street, the upstairs space features twelve-foot-high ceilings, an open-office floor plan and exposed hardwood floors. A large, custom-made stainless steel conference table serves as a favorite focal point.
Brymer and Thomas emphasize the company’s specialized approach to customer service. “Unlike other agencies, we show prospective customers solutions to their needs before they hire us,” said Brymer. “And once on board, we tend to give our clients more than they expect.”
The Creative Block counts several not-for-profit organizations as clients. “We both have experience serving on nonprofit boards, so we know the challenges they face,” explained Brymer. “We enjoy helping those clients raise awareness as well as money.”
The agency also works with small businesses as well as large corporations from various industries, including the investment, senior living and contracting fields.
“We especially love working with start-up companies and nonprofits to develop their names, logos, and taglines,” Brymer reflected.
“We do everything from television commercials, corporate videos, websites, print advertising, brochures, social media and every other vehicle necessary to help our clients get their messages to the marketplace and sell their products,” Brymer added.
