About Workhorse Partners

Abe, Ashleigh and Tj are partners at Workhorse, a brand and creative content agency in Washington, DC. They help companies build better brands, execute strategic campaigns, and activate communities. Inspired by their team of designers, strategists, writers, and artists, they have built an agency that is collectively committed to zero BS, honest collaboration, and good old-fashioned hard work.

Workhorse is the result of a merger between two DC agencies, Workhorse Collective and Decent Workshop. The three partners recognized an opportunity to combine their respective backgrounds in design, content production, and creative strategy and redefine how to build brands and approach content. As a team, they have put this into practice, working with local and national brands that represent their ideal of ‘good businesses doing good things.’
