I think I blinked and landed in February! The past few months have been crazy - holidays, graduating with a masters from UGA, getting snowed in with four extra people at our house! I promise to do a topical post soon, but in the mean time, here's a taste of what we've been up to at Costa Creative:
Frosted Tulip, a new local bakery in Athens, GA, approached us about creating their branding, website and marketing materials. You can check out their nearly completed website here.
A good friend of mine in Charolotte, North Carolina, Starr Haigler, sent her husband my way when he wanted to create a business that would compliment his real estate venture. The result was Smart Home Solutions of NC, a business focused on helping home owners maintain their homes and receive the repairs they need. You can visit them on the web at www.MakeYourHomeSmart.com, a website by Costa Creative.
There are a few other projects that are nearing completion, and I'll update you on those soon. In addition to the advertising and design work of Costa Creative, we were also busy delving into other areas of interest.
In late November/ early December, I conducted my first brand audit for charity: water, a non-profit that builds clean water wells in developing nations. While this was completed for one of my last classes in grad school, I discovered I had a natural talent for helping brands assess and analyze how they're managing their brand and how they can improve. You can download a PDF of the charity: water brand audit here.
In addition, I started teaching as an adjunct instructor at the University of Georgia this semester. I'm teaching Digital Advertising for the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication. I love teaching and working with the students, and I'll have more to share on that soon!
Whew! Lots and lots going on, but we're excited about what the future holds for Costa Creative. Welcome to February!
