Best of Savannah

Best of Savannah Party

We had a blast at the Best of Savannah Party last month! Thank you to all who make us the Best Design Firm in Savannah, and thanks for all the kind words about the cover design for the September/October issue of Savannah Magazine. Not to brag, but we think Cari definitely knocked it out of the park. (Thanks Caila!)

We loved the 1920′s and Art Deco-inspired party theme created by Joel and Erika Snayd — and this wasn’t our first rodeo with the dynamic duo of Rethink Design Studio. We previously worked with them the branding for the modern apothecary  See Jane (we designed the logo and collateral materials), located in Downtown Savannah, and to develop the brand platform and name for high end luxury cat product designer Catouri Cats.

Top 10 Reasons to Rent Office Space at Clark Creative!

We’ll be updating this list over the next 10 days with the Top 10 Reasons to rent office space in our building… so stay tuned!

1.While we can’t accept unicorn tears or high fives* in exchange for your rent, it’s only $400/month. AND includes utilities, like the internetz**. *We’ll accept these in addition to rent money. **So many cat videos.

2. We have an office dog***! So you can say hi to Hercules. ***Sometimes. When he’s being nice. And we’ve bribed him with treats.

3. You don’t have to pay to park on our street! So you can use your quarters for playing arcade games at the movie theater.

4. Who doesn’t love coffee? We have a Keurig that you can use, but you can also walk to most of the coffee shops in town. #WINNING

5. We’re usually really quiet in the office… unless Caila tells a really bad joke. So come share our building! Share the news, and contact Cari@clarkcreativedesign.com if you’re interested.

6. Your office has enough space for afternoon yoga. Or you can work outside (or take a quick nap in the sun) on our back deck. TRIPLE #WIN.

7. If you rent the upstairs office space, we’ll treat you right. We’ll put fresh cut flowers on your desk! (IF any grow in the garden we hope to plant soon in our courtyard)

8. There’s a fridge! And a freezer. We even have fun shaped ice cubes!

9. More than just a room. Rent includes access to a spacious conference room on the first floor – and free promotion of your business. If you’d like, we’ll clear off some space on the shelves for you and encourage you to put up some of your business cards. Let’s promote each other’s business!

10. Your office mates! Though you’ll have your own private space, you won’t be alone.
You’ll be sharing the building with 3 lovely ladies (we know you want to see our faces!http://clarkcreativedesign.com/staff/) – and a guy named Dave.

Midnight Garden Ride Logo

The Midnight Garden Ride

The 4th Annual Midnight Garden Ride presented by New Belgium Brewing was a unique Labor Day Weekend event this past September hosted in Savannah, Georgia.

The perfect Labor Day Weekend accompaniment to Savannah Craft Brew Fest and the Savannah Century, nearly 600 turned the streets into a wave of blinking lights, music, and pedal powered fun on the warm Savannah night. The 10-mile ride through historic downtown benefits Savannah Bicycle Campaign’s efforts to build a better Savannah through bicycling.

Clark Creative Communications gladly accepted this opportunity to brand the event with a new logo, event signage, advertising, posters, tshirts and other marketing collateral. The design incorporates a playful theme of a yellow caution street sign with cyclists wearing safety goggles.

A live concert – the Good and Evil Party, co-produced by the Savannah Stopover, started after the ride in Telfair Square. Ponderosa out of Atlanta — recently featured in Paste Magazine and NPR’s All Songs Considered — headlined the concert and This Mountain of Johnson City, TN kicked the night off.

enhanced website for Hancock Askew & Co

Clark Creative Communications Designs Website for Regional CPA Firm Hancock Askew & Co.

Tailored directly to the unique needs of Hancock Askew & Co., Clark Creative Communications has developed a robust website for the thriving CPA firm. The site seamlessly incorporates a fresh format and design with search engine optimization, social media integration, and a YouTube channel specifically designed to coordinate with the company’s branding.

“Hancock Askew is a CPA firm with over 100 years of experience, and has recently merged with another company with a location in Atlanta,” explains Cari Clark Phelps, founder and creative director of Clark Creative Communications. “They now have a full service office in both locations under the same brand, more staff and greater regional reach, so it was the perfect time to update their digital media presence to reflect that image. We’re opening the conversation about this innovative firm to a wider audience and the website was a perfect place to start.”

Among the features of the Clark Creative-designed website are a custom YouTube channel that complements the website offerings, a responsive version of the full website for mobile devices, a blog, an events calendar, a streamlined process for applicants to apply for positions, and an opportunity to showcase the firm’s prestigious awards, among them the 2012 Alfred P. Sloan Award. In addition, the site’s pages can be customized to include video and testimonials as desired. These implementations to the site design bring Clark Creative Communications to the forefront of the modern digital landscape, where clear information, ease of navigation, and aesthetically pleasing design reign supreme.

Innovative Website Launched for PIER

Clark Creative Unveils Website for Leader in Commercial Real Estate in Savannah

In response to increasing global demand for readily available Web and mobile content, Clark Creative Communications has launched a complete website redesign for PIER Commercial Real Estate. The new site incorporates numerous features to streamline user experience and redefine commercial real estate on the Web.

“PIER stands for Professionalism, Integrity, Excellence, Relationships,” explains PIER owner Ryan T. Schneider. “That’s what we have to offer and we thought it was time to put it top of mind – along with what we do: retail, commercial, industrial, and office.”

Among the unique features of the Clark Creative-designed PIER site are the dynamic image of Broughton Street that changes from light to dark according to time of day, a mobile version of the site that is device-specific, the highly readable single-page format, and a LoopNet property listings portal integrated directly into the site design. These innovations and more bring Clark Creative Web design to the forefront of the modern digital landscape, where clear information, ease of navigation, and aesthetically pleasing design reign supreme.

Clark Creative Communications rebranded PIER commercial with a new brand identity system, signage, stationery and other marketing collateral earlier in the year. See the entire portfolio of work for PIER on their website. View the live website here.

Do You Have A Card?

 

Despite living in a technology oriented society where information is delivered through texts, tweets and emails, people still use business cards. A professional card creates a lasting impression of who you are and what you do.

Clark Creative Communications has been undergoing a refresh with our brand. With the redesign of our website, newsletter, and logo, we knew it was important to keep our company’s image consistent. Read more >>

Sign, Sign, Everywhere a Sign

 

Our client Goose Feathers Café is celebrating 26 years as Savannah’s Quintessential Café in a really big way. A billboard on Drayton and Maupas was created by our design team. While we hope the Goose Feathers ad will capture your attention the next time you drive up Drayton, please drive safely. We don’t want to hear about any feathers flying.

Demo Reel

Clark Creative in motion

During the design process for our website, we realized we had so many projects to show. Sometimes a picture is really only worth a 1000 words.  Seeing a designer’s work digitally doesn’t always paint the whole picture. Texture, scale, color and relationship all play a part of the total dynamic of a design. Each component sets the tone of a brand.

We have a lot more to say, so we packaged it up in this nifty demo reel, showing our talents in motion. This piece shows design, animation, editing and story boarding skills. We hope you like it and that it leaves you bobbing your head to the beats and well, speechless. Or a simple jaw drop and the word “WOW!” would be a huge compliment too. We’ll take that!
