Owner Lori Reed said: “Since relocating to the Pacific NW in 2011, our team has been working hard to prove to the local community that creative small businesses can indeed be professional, reliable and trustworthy—and this award proves it!”
Reed Creative is celebrating 25 years in business delivering professional graphic design strategy and solutions to clients across the country, including here in Clark County. Reed acquired her expansive design experience working in cities such as New York, San Francisco, San Diego, Sun Valley, New Orleans and for the last dozen years, here in Washougal. She continues to collaborate with creatives in several of these locations when she assembles the right team to fit the job at hand to produce work that exceeds client’s expectations and is often industry award-winning.
In addition to putting their experience to work on client accounts, Reed shares her depth of knowledge as a design industry thought leader by speaking to local business groups, colleges and universities on topics such as “Creativity as a Career” and “How to Build a Better Brand.”
Asked what’s next for the studio now that this milestone has been reached, Reed stated: “In the next five years, we look forward to focussing even more energy in designing for the event marketing space in our community, creating materials that help local organizations successfully brand and promote their upcoming events. We have extensive nationwide experience creating everything it takes to produce a successful suite of event materials from print to pixel—including branding, save the dates, invitations, programs, auction catalogs, graphics for web and social media, signage, swag and even video screens. We’d love to put this knowledge and enthusiasm to work for more of the organizations doing meaningful work here in the Vancouver/Portland metro region!”
A long time AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts) and AMA (American Marketing Association) member, Reed serves her business community as Past President of Camas Washougal Chamber of Commerce, Board Member for Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce and Board Member for the newly reforming Washougal Business Association.
