Outright believes that with the right people, anything is possible. And when a team of artists and strategists who admire and respect each other work toward a common goal, whatever emerges will be a product of passion, drive and innovation. 

We strive to help brands reach their full potential, to push their boundaries, and to inspire the world in meaningful and unexpected ways. We craft brands, experiences, and campaigns that are rooted in strategic storytelling, clever design, and an original approach. 

Outright is a certified woman- and minority-owned business and has certifications from Womens Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) and Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT), Office of Minority Business Enterprise.

Outright offers a wide range of video services from the small - such as short pre-roll ads, social media stories and in-feed video content - to larger productions. In addition to production work, our team is also adept at pre-production, creating engaging scripts and storyboards, as well as post-production editing, music composition, voiceover coordination and recording, sound mixing and design, animation, and motion design.

In addition to our talented motion graphics and design team, Outright also works with clients to develop in-depth brand strategies, marketing strategies, marketing and advertising campaign implementation and management, and much more. We have extensive experience in placing and managing ads across social media platforms, programmatic display and video spots, as well as coordinating media buys with podcasters, influencers, broadcast TV and radio, and more.

While our office is in the Washington, DC area, we work with clients based across the country.
