Digital Playbooks began as a small start-up specializing in brand design and digital sports marketing for professional and collegiate sports teams around the country.

Our interactive design team developed the Digital Playbook™ App for the iPad® after having been contacted by a leading professional NFL sports franchise interested in converting its print-based playbooks and gameplans to a digital medium. Subsequent research and consulting led us to develop our enterprise-level app for the iPad, serving the needs of all professional and collegiate sports teams.

Digital Playbooks is headquarted in Baltimore, Maryland, proud home of the Maryland crab, the Oriole bird, Edgar Allan Poe, Michael Phelps and Under Armour. We operate out of a refurbished 100-year old sail factory 5 miles north of the Inner Harbor. In the summer of 2012, we opened a secondary office in Düsseldorf, Germany, located in the hip, fashion-forward Oberkassel district.
