History

There’s a reason Werremeyer Creative has been delivering impactful design and marketing tools for over fifty years. Our commitment to our clients has paved the way for a rich, diverse history in the St. Louis community. Our company was founded by A.S. Werremeyer in 1904 as Werremeyer Printing Company in North St. Louis. Arthur Werremeyer inherited the firm from his father and transformed the printing company into a graphic design firm in the early ’60s.

In 2000, the company was passed on to Arthur’s daughter, Gretchen Land, who is now the sole owner. The company has grown over the last 17 years into a full-service marketing and graphic design agency using modern technology and resources while building on a legacy of service and a history of success. We invite you to discover what dozens of brands across a wide range of industries have been experiencing for decades — world class expertise in design, marketing, and advertising.

We believe open communication and respectful relationships set the tone for success.

Tucker

Tucker

Director of Therapy and Security

Tucker may have started life as a free puppy but make no mistake – he is priceless. In 2006, Gretchen needed a way to keep her boys busy while attending a horse show in Kentucky. A puppy giveaway did the trick, and Tucker’s name was derived from “Kentucky’ while driving home to Missouri. Life is sweet with two pug sisters at home, but Tucker enjoys putting in a full day at the office. In fact, he gets upset if Gretchen heads to Werremeyer (or anywhere, for that matter) without him. Don’t be surprised if Tucker greets you at the door and sits in on a meeting or two, offering calming comfort and strong presence. He’s our silent partner and our solid rock.
