I wanted to take a few minutes to talk to you about community. At Creative Allies, we love our community! But who is really included. Glad you asked.
Creative Allies got started back in 2009 by creating a community of graphic designers. At that time, we wanted designers to help create amazing art for touring musicians. Most people know that smaller bands make a lot of their money from merchandise sales on the road. But having a graphic designer to make that merchandise stand out, can’t be costly. So here at Creative Allies, we used the concept of crowdsourced design to provide bands, high quality design at a lower cost.
Of course we’ve grown a lot since then, and now our community is over 100,000 worldwide. We also don’t just work with smaller, touring bands, we work with everyone. A while back, we stopped assuming our community was just graphic designers. We have other creatives as well, including writers, videographers, illustrators and photographers. It’s pretty amazing how our community has grown. We’ve also broadened our client base to give our community opportunities to work with all kind of sports and entertainment brands.
One area that we are involved in, but don’t share a lot about is our local community. Here in North Carolina there is so much going on related to art, music, sports and business. We touch all of that. So we are introducing Creative Allies Cares, as way for us to give back to all of our communities. We have several client partners that we’ll work with over time do some amazing things in the community and we’ll be sharing all of that with you here.
Creative Allies Cares
At Creative Allies, we care about our communities. Whether it’s using crowdsourced design for fundraisers, volunteering with local non-profits or highlighting stories about people who are doing good. If there is any topic or event you want us to cover or if there is something really cool happening in YOUR local community let us know. We want to hear about, we want to write about it and we want to share it.
