The Happenings at Creative

Did you know the best way to our employees’ hearts is through their stomachs? You see, we have found a workplace-enhancing benefit from the simple activity of holding a friendly lunch.

Thanks to our friendly neighbor Tacos El Grullense who was eager to recreate a menu for their taco truck. Leo the owner reached out to Creative to make this project happen. In order to get the menu ready, Leo needed photos of the food, designing of the menu, and printing/placement on his taco truck.

On a Friday afternoon, Leo prepared every dish on his menu from his famous street tacos to a more exotic dish like his barbacoa. Our Marketing Coordinator Chelsea Perez helped photograph all menu items with the help of Rosemary Derby (Graphic Design) and Kim Larios (Customer Service) to help get the perfect lighting for the shoot.

Leo was very kind to prepare all food items on the menu for the Creative team. We love that we were able to help Taco Grullense with this project and we appreciate the generosity. Leo the food was delicious!

The Journey Home...

Butte Humane Society has been helping lost, abandoned and abused animals in the Chico area since 1911. For 108 years they have helped thousands of furry friends find food, shelter, medical care, and ultimately their forever homes through the efforts of many caring individuals.

Thanks to their ongoing efforts to help our local community Butte Humane Society has launched a capital campaign to raise funds to build a new animal shelter. This shelter will offer exciting opportunities to care for animals and allow them to expand.

With over 10,000 square feet of animal space and plenty of wide-open community spaces it will be an amazing place to adopt, volunteer and learn. ­­

Behind the Scenes: Glenn County

A Story About a Pretty Unique Project

Glenn County had recently entered into the California State Fair’s 2019 Competitive Exhibits Program. For this program, they were challenged to create a display environment about their county that would encourage patrons to interact with their messaging and to share with friends & family.

The theme “Picture Yourself In…” presented the idea on any topic or a combination of topics in a compelling representation of their county.

To help create an exceptional display Jody Samons the community development director reached out to Creative for the job. She came to us needing several types of marketing, print and signage materials to design their display. She worked directly with our lead designer Scott and lead signage Brandon to create and deliver a rotating 12ft display with four interactive components.

I have a long successful relationship with Creative and I am thankful for their continuous quality of service and for helping create a beautiful display for our county.

Here at Creative, we love new challenges and while some people might struggle to overcome them our Creative Team was able to meet them with confidence. It was a pleasure working with Jody and helping her develop the signage materials she needed to showcase this fantastic new project!
