Mix Creative turns 1!

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

Happy 1st year, Mix Creative! As we celebrate our first full year of business as Mix Creative, we’d like to say a big THANK YOU to our awesome clients who made it possible! It’s truly a pleasure to associate with such intelligent, driven, and creative people every day.

To mark our one-year milestone, I thought it would be fun to reflect on some accomplishments:

  • We built our client list from one company to over twenty
  • We added custom e-newsletters to the suite of print and web products we offer
  • We produced our first content-managed web site
  • We published advertisements in about a dozen different publications
  • Our website design for GoFishCommercial.com appears in Forbes Magazine
  • Our press release for Saint Paul Classic Cookie was picked up by the Star Tribune and featured on the cover of their business section
  • We worked with some brilliant photographers to shoot food (catering and cookies), fashion, and interiors for our clients
  • We created Flash presentations for web clients like the Semple Mansion and Chromis Fiberoptics

Thanks to everyone for a terrific year. We look forward to continuing our work as your partner in your marketing and design efforts in the years to come!

Sincerely,

Katrina
