About

We exist to shape the world through a lens of representational equity, starting with ourselves and reaching to our clients through truly inclusive branding and marketing.  It’s not as simple as choosing multi-cultural imagery or burning through a D.E.I. checklist — it must be woven into the fabric of the business. We crave fresh talent, celebrate new perspectives, and forge lasting relationships through high-quality, strategic creative work.

Whether fresh out of school, changing careers, or developing a new skill set, at BT Foundry, developing creatives earn a living wage for doing quality work. We don’t accept anything less.

oUR STORY

The BT Foundry story is simple: We find talent and passion that often goes unrecognized. We pair that talent with education and mentorship from active industry professionals. We put that education to work with real projects for real clients. Our talented creatives take that real, resume-ready experience, and use it to launch big-time careers in marketing and advertising. How does that all happen? Our Apprenticeship program. We know that marketing to a diverse world means diverse marketing teams. So we prioritize hiring our Apprentices from communities that don't normally have an easy pipeline to marketing careers. And we pair our Apprentices with the best clients in the business. Our clients are cause-driven organizations that want work that represents and includes us all. Clients deserve quality work and developing creatives deserve meaningful experience. We provide both. Our Apprenticeship program bridges the gap between small-business & nonprofit clients with limited budgets and talented creatives ready to show the world what they can do.

Our Values

Adaptability

No two clients are the same so our approach can’t be either.

Creativity

Chase inspiration. Don’t settle for “functional”.

Integrity

Every project is a collective trust-fall. Your team and your client are counting on your honesty.

Drive

Work when you don’t want to. Then stretch, take a lap, and dive back in until the job is done.

Transparency

This goes beyond the company level. It’s the foundation of the teamwork, collaboration, and mutual success our agency seeks.

Equity

(Noun) The quality of being fair, just, and impartial. Enough said.

Empathy

Everything we do is strengthened by our ability to understand and share the feelings of those around us.
