Welcome to Brainstorm Creative Resources, the Mid-Atlantic region’s #1 place to connect with creative and editorial professionals.

Whether you’re an employer seeking the temporary assistance of an on-site editor, a creative director seeking a more challenging full-time job, or a freelance Web designer seeking new clients, we can help. And traditional recruiting and placement services are just the beginning.

Our human resources consulting practice picks up where traditional staffing and placement firms leave off. If you’re interested in making your own creative or editorial services hires, let us know. We’ll be happy to help support your efforts.

If you have any questions about our services or to schedule a face-to-face meeting, please feel free to contact us.



Adam Sidel

Adam is a staffing industry veteran and former broadcast journalist. He received his MBA from Johns Hopkins University and lives with his wife and two children in Washington, DC.

Adam began developing the Brainstorm Creative Resources model while working as a Washington, DC-based creative services placement consultant for an international staffing services firm.

Adam’s goal was to bring the first truly flexible system for supplementing internal creative and editorial resources to the DC area. By offering human resources consulting and an innovative business-to-business matching program, as well as traditional staffing and recruitment services, Adam is able to realize that goal every day.

"I build substantive, lasting relationships with the best and the brightest in our local creative community." ~Adam Sidel
