What Makes
Us Different?

When you are choosing a creative agency to work with, you have a lot of different paths you can take–from large but inflexible agencies to free online vendors or apps. Finding the best fit for you and your company or organization is key to success.

We believe that the people involved in a project make the biggest difference. With our passionate, capable, experienced, reliable team, your project will be smooth, effective, and fun to boot. Our projects end with high-fives and celebratory cookies, not finger-pointing and frustration. That’s the CreativePickle standard.

How Can We Help You?
Brand Vision & Storytelling

The most effective way to engage your market is to tell a great story. To tell your story in the best way possible, you need to work with creative people and modern tools. Along with our copywriters and PR partners, we work with you to envision and develop your custom brand, and then relay your message by helping you tell your story using the perfect combination of professionally designed graphics and great copy. Whether it’s an online campaign, a custom website, email marketing, event materials, animated infographics, or custom videos, we’ve got you covered.

Experience-Based Consulting

We believe that a large part of our job is to ensure that your print and web products are impressive, and are easy for your market to digest. Your brochures, tradeshow booths, websites, videos, and other products should perfectly convey the culture and best qualities of your business and your brand. To do this, we consult with you about your goals and get to know you, your brand, and your business. We combine that with our extensive knowledge of current design trends, information organization, and optimal user experience design to create products that are as functional and useful as they are beautiful.

Responsive Communication

In an ideal world, a creative agency should be responsive and communicative throughout a project. However, we have found that many of our clients come to us after less-than-satisfactory dealings with other agencies, and their main complaints are that communication was difficult, projects got stalled, deadlines were missed, and responses to requests were slow or lacking. We efficiently and effectively manage projects by maintaining open lines of communication throughout the project process, and responding in a timely manner to all requests.

Custom Design

We start with a blank canvas—from scratch—every time. We get to know you and your business so we can translate your branding into professional and impressive products. We have a variety of artists and designers and we strive to make each of our designs unique and handcrafted. We want users not only to engage with your brand and product, but also to love them. From texture and pattern to font and color, we custom create each pixel of your branding, print products, and websites with creativity and exacting attention to detail.

Long-Term Partnerships

We pride ourselves on developing lasting partnerships with our clients. We are invested in the success of your company and the role that your branding and graphic presence plays in that. We want to be at the table with you as a valued part of your business on an ongoing basis for planning, goal-setting, and implementing all of your branding and marketing needs. From start-ups to well-established brands or brands transitioning through mergers or acquisitions, we can grow with you and your changing business needs.

Flexibility

We work with our clients in a variety of ways. Each project and business is different and requires a unique approach. We are flexible and nimble in how we work with you, whether it is a one-time project, or an ongoing partnership at the table with you as you plan and grow. We offer a variety of monthly partnership plans to accommodate your scheduling and budgeting needs.


We Love What We Do, And We Do It Right

We focus on nurturing long-term partnerships with clients who value great ideas, creative thought, and professional design. Our team is composed of creative, talented, experienced, skillful, and dependable people.


Featured Work
Candlelight Ranch

This Texas-based nonprofit had outgrown their old website, and needed a whole new scalable web platform as they serve a larger and larger need in their region. After a quick logo refresh and new brand standards, we custom designed and custom built a full-scale website that helps them manage events, promote their programs, take online donations, and promote involvement. Rack cards, business cards, event invitations and HTML emails were designed to match for a consistent and professional look.

Vela | Wood Law Firm

This growing law firm based out of Dallas and Austin, Texas, came to us at the beginning with a unique vision and a lot of gumption. We helped craft a brand that reflected their vision of innovation and outside-the-box thinking. Over the past ten years, working in close collaboration with their lead partner and in-house marketing director, we have helped build a robust brand that is an ever-evolving but consistent reflection of their culture and their expertise. From podcast cover art to 10th anniversary event branding to an interactive blog, we’ve helped them have the appropriate platform to be industry thought leaders with the tools to succeed.

Austin Wealth Management

Austin Wealth Management had the raw ingredients of great service, a fantastic client-focused business, and roots in the Austin community. But their branding needed an energy boost, and their website needed structure and style. After a brand refresh with a newly polished logo, we custom designed a full website with animated infographics and other bells and whistles in addition to traditional print pieces and ongoing support.

Rosemark Properties

Rosemark Properties is a new subdivision development in Austin, Texas, attracting local families as well as investors. The developer came to us with the name, and we branded it from the ground up with a fresh, modern-but-classic vibe. The logo makes for distinct, professional signage and the one-page website has a variety of custom graphics plus multiple robust sections with engaging animations and micro-actions that subtly engage the user to see what happens next.

Affiliated Dermatologists

Affiliated Dermatologists came to us as they were expanding into multiple locations, and needed a brand update and an online presence to help stage them for growth and build patient retention. After updating their logo, we designed a custom website with an extensive patient resources section, detailed location information, as well as robust providers and services sections. In addition, we rounded out their branding with printed materials and office signage for a consistent and comprehensive overhaul.

Ryan Law

Ryan Law came to us with an existing logo, but without a fully developed brand. They wanted their products to showcase the level of specialized and competitive work they offer. We built a stunning new visual presence around the existing logo resulting in a full, sophisticated, and unique brand.

Smart New You

Smart New You is a growing cosmetic and wellness services company in Dallas, Texas, who came to us with a desire to update their materials with a more polished, sleek, and high-end look. Through a total rebrand and graphics overhaul, we elevated their brand to appeal to their sophisticated clientele. Collaborating with their in-house marketing team, we built a beautiful and user-friendly custom website plus helped secure traction with ongoing blogging, targeted campaigns, and social media marketing.

Association for Creatine Deficiencies

This Austin-based nonprofit came to us with an existing brand that needed to be polished and enhanced. After a logo redesign and branding work, we consulted with them on their existing website design, and added to their marketing efforts with a custom-designed animated video presentation, custom t-shirt designs, infographics, brochures, and tradeshow booth designs.

Eckert Insurance Group

Eckert is a local-favorite, family-owned insurance agency that came to us for a custom look that matched the owner’s vision. After some information architecture and user experience planning, we custom designed this website from the ground up with cool animations, custom fonts, and an authentic Austin vibe.

Rays Spirits

This fun new spirit needed a custom and unique website to compete in the tight drink & beverage market. We custom crafted a new website that showcases their refreshing new drink in a memorable but clutter-free design.
