We want our Washington DC businesses and clients to prosper and we do so by filling the gap between where the customer is looking and where the company is appearing. Together, with our mind of entrepreneurs and marketing pros, we challenge the "everyday" and think how to creatively take your business outside of the box. If you succeed, then in turn, we succeed.

About Our Team

Working with a marketing or design agency shouldn’t be stressful, and it shouldn’t leave you questioning or wondering about the quality of the results. We want to be your partner and sincerely help your company prosper and grow to its highest potential.


To put it bluntly, Lazarus does the grunt work- all that digital marketing and design stuff that you need for your company but just don’t have time for. Except we think it’s pretty fun. We have a group of what we call marketing “glue,” talented employees that keep everything running smoothly.

The diverse skill set we have across the team keeps us in check but it also ensures that our designs and services meet each clients’ unique needs and style. The values behind our work are most important to who we are and how we strive to improve every day. By working with us, your values are outfitted to fit your company just as closely as ours are to our company.
