We don’t set out to win awards for our work. Overwhelmingly positive response, increases in sales and awareness, and results that exceed expectations are what really get us going. That’s not to say we’re not proud of being recognized for excellence too. Here are a few types of awards we’ve won over the years.
I highly recommend Creative Co-op. I find them to be a very talented group and their design and solutions are of the highest quality. I enjoy working with them because I feel that they truly care about our objectives and invest a lot of time and effort into producing well thought-out campaigns and initiatives. They asked us many very important questions that not only helped us better define our own vision, but also allowed them to create distinct and beautifully elegant creative that made our brand shine.
Creative Co-op’s expert skill in creative strategy was an enormous selling point for me. I was looking for a partner. As a department of one I needed an agency who treated me with respect and truly listened to my needs. Every call or visit with Josh and his team, left me feeling fulfilled and with a desire for more opportunities for strategic conversations. High level, thoughtful, thorough conversations. Creative Co-op has a unique positioning from an ad agency perspective. They have the expertise and experience of a large-scale agency with the responsiveness, character and true partnership that any company would want. The responsiveness you will get with Creative Co-op and the personal attention they give your influencers is a driving force in the success we had year after year with them as our partner.
I joined Pepco Holdings, Inc., to restore the brand reputation of what Business Insider called “the most hated company in America.” It was clear very quickly that I needed to establish a strong team and the right strategic partners to succeed. Creative Co-op, a firm that I have worked with on numerous challenging assignments over more than a decade, was one of the first partners I brought to the organization and they proved integral to our success. Creative Co-op strategized, planned and executed the evolution of our brand, transforming it from disengaged and dated to energized, dedicated and forward looking. Creative Co-op has the essential ability to “see the whole playing field” when it comes to working with stakeholders and planning and executing complex brand evolutions. Their design work is exceptional, but they also know how to build consensus and that’s the difference between being able to come up with great ideas and being able to implement them. I trust them. That’s not a statement I make lightly. Our business is delivering reliable electric service to individuals, families and businesses that depend on us. There is no room for error. Creative Co-op is that partner you want with you “in the trenches” when your reputation is at stake.
Their professional, thoughtful and deliberative approach to solving brand and marketing issues, while being very considerate of the thoughts and opinions of the client, is a rare mix. They listen to the client and develop great creative materials that hit the spot.
During the years I have worked with Creative Co-op, I have seen the agency in action on an array of different projects and assignments ranging from developing new brands, to orchestrating the creative development of a suite of marketing collateral, to designing and implementing websites, to strategizing and developing impactful advertising campaigns. In all capacities and at all times I have been delighted with the strategic thinking and the impressive creative ideas and measurable results generated by Creative Co-op. In all capacities and at all times I have been delighted with the strategic thinking and the impressive creative ideas and measurable results generated by Creative Co-op. Through a winning combination of thorough research review and creative thinking, they were able to collaboratively create a brand with us that captured a 120-year-old company in need of a fresh face for public offering. It was a whirlwind brand overhaul in an extremely compressed timeframe, and Creative Co-op exceeded expectations while achieving every objective we set.
Creative Co-op has always been a strong steward of our brand and has helped us refine our brand throughout the years, including the launch of a new name and logo. Our work over the years has garnered numerous awards and contributed to significant growth of the bank. Creative Co-op is a reliable company that consistently meets deadlines, even when turnaround is tight. They are thorough in their approach and are always willing to get on a call to discuss new projects or brainstorm ideas. I would recommend Creative Co-op without hesitation.
One of our top interests was to work with a marketing firm that had a facility with language that could help us convey both the subtle aspects of our approach to providing services and the passion of the beliefs and principles that backed up that service. Creative Co-op was outstanding. Their communications are precise, economical and beautiful. We were thrilled with the results. The have been consistently professional in their engagement with us. It is clear that top quality is their goal with every project. They carefully design proposals, adapt them following careful conversations and stick to whatever budget parameters are current for the company. This has been particularly helpful as we navigate the funding realities of our not-for-profit world.
The result of our efforts together over the past eleven years is that the bank is now four times its size (the loan portfolio is more than ten times the size). We are now the dominant community bank in our primary markets. The work Creative Co-op has done for Merrimack County Savings Bank speaks for itself. Creative Co-op is an essential partner. It is my pleasure to recommend Creative Co-op for the creative services and program execution needed to advance any organization’s message. He is thoughtful about how to make the absolute most out of any project and brings ideas forward without hesitation, performing as a true member of our team rather than an order taker.
Our Leadership Team LOVED the new campaign. I shared all of the photos and then the four ads. The staff just thought they were all terrific. Thank you again for all of your work on this – I really feel like this campaign truly captured the Optima brand and experience.
