Our Story

Marilyn Trent started with little more than a Bachelor of Fine Arts, her creative talent, her tenacity and her commitment to satisfying the design needs of her clients when she first started Trent Creative in 1992. Over the past twenty-five years she has turned that business into a successful, full-service design and print and digital marketing agency while simultaneously raising two daughters and acting as a catalyst for positive social and ecological change in her community.

Trent Creative is a certifed WBENC (Women Business Enterprise) and has digital, interactive and print designers as full-time employees on staff and easy to reach whenever there is a need.

In 2011, a second office was opened in Midtown Detroit. Many people asked why would anyone make such a move when the economy had not recovered and the risk was so great. The answer was quite simple according to Marilyn. “I believed in the greater community and I had been working with clients in Detroit since 1999. I had always had the vision and hope that if there was an opportunity to become a part of the resurgence of Detroit, I would become a part of it and I have never looked back."

Meeting the demands of our incredibly diverse client base has given us the skills to adapt quickly to whatever our clients need. Our production practices have been refined over the years to be as flexible and responsive as possible and we work hand in hand with our clients to ensure their vision is fully realized. Our experience has made us effective problem solvers who thrive on new challenges. (view our portfolio to learn more)
