Danielle Salley

Owner & Creative Director

Danielle Salley is a freelance creative director and designer with a background in branding, advertising, and web development. Located in South Carolina, Danielle has nearly 20 years of experience working in the advertising industry. Ten of those years were spent working for the southeast agency, Chernoff Newman. During her time there she worked on a variety of accounts including B2B and B2C clients creating award-winning branding, integrated campaigns, and digital projects. In 2023, she decided to take the leap and start her own company, Danielle Salley Creative.

Her passion for advertising is seen through her dedication to the American Advertising Federation (AAF). Through this organization, she has been awarded National President of the Year (2014), Member of the Year (2016), National Governor of the Year (2020), and is a Silver Medal recipient (2021). She currently serves on the AAF National Board of Directors and the AAF Council of Governors Executive Committee.

Outside of the office, Danielle enjoys playing tennis, riding her Peloton (#RideSalleyRide), and enjoying quality time with her husband, Will, and daughter, Genevieve. She is also the co-host of a new podcast called “Ghost Boss: Stories of the Freelance Afterlife.” 

what I believe in

Work Smarter, Not Harder

Throughout my career, I’ve lived by the motto “Work Smarter, Not Harder” but that doesn’t mean not being a hard worker. It means making sure my clients are using my services to best fit their professional needs and ensuring we’re streamlining processes and elevating their brand.
