Strive Creative is a full service creative resource, but you probably already knew that. So now you’re wondering how we’re different from other companies like us. To put it simply: we’re nimble, open-minded, storytellers. Ok, that may have been too simple, so here goes:
We’re small and we like it that way. Being small allows us to be more nimble, to react faster as the marketplace changes, and most of all it keeps our overhead down. In the past, the price tag on creative endeavors scaled exponentially with an increase in quality; at Strive, that’s no longer the case. We approach every project with the client’s budget in mind and most times we’ll come in under it.
Creativity doesn’t happen in a vacuum; in fact it’s just the opposite. We believe that in order to get the most out of a project, you need to listen to your surroundings and the people whom inhabit them.
If every opinion comes from the same perspective, it’s difficult to know whether you’ve explored all options and given the project the true focus and solution it deserves. Therefore we seek diversity in our project teams and employees. We do this by listening to every voice at the table and paying attention to individuality.
"...all of these perspectives can lend an interesting and unique angle on the approach we take for any given project."
Whether it’s backpacking, or gaming, or skateboarding, or having a weird predilection towards Japanese culture... all of these perspectives can lend an interesting and unique angle on the approach we take for any given project. You never know where the next great concept is coming from, so you better pay attention.
Conveying a message isn’t always as simple as stating the facts, if it were we wouldn’t have agencies dedicated to this. Facts alone can dry out a message and obscure the truth, instead you need to take the facts and craft them into a story that your audience wants to hear. A good story gives you the opportunity to inspire action rather than dictate it. Our passion is to tell good stories; stories that invoke emotion and action, stories that people want to hear.
Ok, that’s better.
