We focus on nurturing long-term partnerships with clients who value great ideas, creative thought, and professional design.

Some creative agencies are experienced, but not reliable. Some are reliable, but…not all that creative. We are the full package.

Through our proven (and always-evolving) process, our talented and creative team, and our real-world experience, we consult with you to bring your vision for your brand to life.

We help our clients craft and tell their story through digital campaigns, animated infographics, conference materials, illustrated videos, books, brochures, and any other avenue imaginable. Our clients vary widely, from nonprofits to healthcare companies, real estate developers to growing law firms, retail to public projects.

CreativePickle has been a wonderful marketing and graphic design resource for our growing organization. From logo development to printed pieces and web layouts, the team at CreativePickle continues to impress us with their high quality work and keen eye for details. We are a small, rare disease nonprofit, but thanks to the quality and consistency of style in the products that CreativePickle has worked on for us, we are constantly complimented by industry partners, parents, and researchers for our professionalism. CreativePickle helps us look our best!

Association for Creatine Deficiencies

The Creative Pickle team has been a joy to work with. They are professional, visionary and have helped us conceptualize and elevate our brand. We are very grateful for their guidance and expertise as we cultivate and expand our impact with helping children and families of all abilities learn, explore, and heal through nature.

Candlelight Ranch

I had such a great experience working with CreativePickle on the branding for my new spirit! The logo design choices they presented were all phenomenal! They all met my needs and captured my vision in graphic form. Dorie and her team did an amazing job guiding me through the process of creating the new brand, including packaging and label design for our bottles. I’ve received countless compliments on how great our bottle looks. High Horse Triple Sec is what it is because of CreativePickle!

High Horse Premium Triple Sec

Working with the team at CreativePickle was a fun and extremely rewarding experience. They did a stunning job, capturing the essence of our school beautifully in pictures, graphics, movement, layout, design and text. They guided us through the process, making it easy and time-efficient. We couldn’t be happier!

Athena Montessori Academy

We recently hired Dorie and her extremely talented creative team to do a complete re-branding of our company, including a new logo design, website and magazine ads. The bottom line is that Dorie simply gets it. She was quick to understand our vision for the brand, and we were smart enough to stay out of her way and let her and her team take it from there. Referrals are the highest compliment that any customer can give, and I’ve recommended CreativePickle to a couple of associates already, with complete confidence that they will have the same experience.

Austin Concrete Development

CreativePickle is much more than a website development company, they are truly brand ambassadors for your business. Working with their team has been an invaluable experience for us as we updated our firm logo and branding, marketing materials, and website. We relied heavily on their insight, thoughtfulness, flexibility, and creativity to craft a holistic brand strategy for our firm that maximizes our appeal to ideal clients. We think of them not as a service provider, but as an integral partner to our team and its success.

Austin Wealth Management

CreativePickle has been such an incredible partner to Bloom for so long that they can now effectively read our minds, creating work that delights us every time. Having worked with them on dozens of projects – for both our own brand and to the benefit of our clients – we continue to be impressed by their creative expertise, professionalism and drive to go above and beyond. Simply put, they’re the best

Bloom Communications

What a pleasure it is to work with the team at CreativePickle! They displayed professionalism, proactive communication, responsiveness, and creative brilliance throughout the project, and they made the process from inception to completion a breeze.

Minerva Financial Arts

CreativePickle continues to exceed my team’s expectations. Not only is their client service top notch, they also bring us new and innovative ideas that help us service our clients. We highly recommend CreativePickle as they have been an amazing asset to PSW Real Estate.

PSW Real Estate

The CreativePickle team is full of extremely talented and artistic people. They knew exactly what we wanted and created a concept that illustrated the fun-loving creative, yet professional, culture of our company. CreativePickle went above and beyond what we expected. We wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking for a design team that can take your vision and turn it into a reality better than imagined.

Ketner Group PR

I enjoyed working with Creative Pickle – besides being creatively brilliant, they are great to work with. They were professional, thoughtful, and focused on my firm’s success.

Lincoln Law Firm LLP

Working with CreativePickle is always great! From the creativity to the detailed execution of each project, my experience has been outstanding. The responsive nature of all team members at CreativePickle is excellent. With our new spirit launching that is something very different than what is on the market, we needed an agency that could really understand the product and bring it to life digitally; CreativePickle did just that, and we continue to get tons of great feedback.

Rays Spirits

Having worked in the startup community for some time, we have had the pleasure (and displeasure) of working with a variety of web development firms. It’s this experience that allows us to say with the utmost confidence that CreativePickle is our #1 choice and we will never use anyone else if it can be helped… Dorie helped us tell our story in a more compelling manner and easily exceeded our expectations. What we didn’t expect was the enterprise level of professionalism that CreativePickle brings to the table.

Texo Ventures

From web consulting, to graphic design and web development, the CreativePickle team has given our brand the boost that it needed. Our marketing products are now consistent, professional, and everything they need to be to make us shine against our competitors. Our new website gets rave reviews, and is easy to update ourselves. Plus, they are fun and engaging to work with. They serve as a valuable partner at our table!

Bridgepoint Consulting

One of the things that really sets CreativePickle apart is that they do such a great job of supporting our ongoing design needs. They always cheerfully help out on our ‘small requests’ like keeping the web page current, designing additional ads to suit different publications, making changes to our collateral literature to reflect staff changes, etc. As a result, our look is consistent and professional. We get a lot of compliments on our printed materials as well as our website.

Evans Dermatology

Creative Pickle and their team are incredibly responsive and take the time to make sure it’s done right! Since working with them, we have continually moved other aspects of our business to their agency to manage as they smart, savvy, intelligent, excellent partners and FUN to work with.

Healthcare Associates of Texas

The team at CreativePickle will knock your socks off!In my entire career, I have never worked with a firm that meets ALL three of my most important criteria from a company – creative, technical and follow-through. You get all three with CreativePickle. They are downright amazing and they definitely Do It Right.

Jen Smith Social

CreativePickle is my go-to firm for all of my design needs, and I frequently recommend them to clients, friends and associates. They are talented, creative and resourceful, and to top it all off, they are a blast to work with.

Vela Wood Law
Featured Work
High Horse Premium Triple Sec

High Horse Triple Sec is a bold, orange spirit distilled right in the heart of Texas. Jeremiah Allen founded High Horse to fill the void left by the absence of Texas-based Triple Sec, despite the fact that it is an integral part of a Texan favorite: margaritas. We collaborated with the client to develop a unique brand identity, including the logo, bottle label, custom website, and other marketing collateral. Inspired by its Texas roots, the brand has a western, rustic, but modern design with an elevated touch. It will undoubtedly stand out among the other bottles on the shelf. In 2022, the label was honored with a spot in the Best Packaging Design in GDUSA’s American Graphic Design Awards Issue– cheers!

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. In 2022, they were voted in the Top 10 Legal Website Designs by DesignRush for their website!

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.

Lightfully Behavioral Health

A great brand starts with a great name. We collaborated with this California-based client on the type of culture and direction they were intending with their new nationwide company. We came up with the name, helped secure the premium domain through a broker, and built the brand, which is light, comforting, and hopeful. After the branding was established, we designed and developed an engaging and custom website bringing the brand to life with featured animations, custom illustrations, and compelling graphics. In addition, we custom crafted their stationery, social media platforms, and brochures.

Mend Services

Mend Services is an Austin-based commercial, residential, and specialty construction services firm committed to providing exceptional craftsmanship and precision management. They came to us with an existing logo, but no other branding elements. We helped them craft their message, their vibe, and a custom website to help showcase the great work they are offering. In addition, we helped with van graphics, exterior signage, internal templates, and mailers.

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.

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.
