As the first of many posts here at the GREAT 8 CREATIVE | blog, we thought we’d dedicate it to the backbone of this company: Our GREAT clients. GREAT 8 CREATIVE was founded as a means to use art and design to help others grow their businesses in sports-related industries. Although we can’t deny the fact that financial success for us and for our clients is a part of it as well, :) our ultimate goal in doing so is to form what we call The GREAT Community.

The GREAT Community to us is about doing great work for our clients and building a solid network along the way as a result.

We’re not just here to create things. We’re here to cheer on our clients in their workplace (which is often out on the course, racing!) and to celebrate their feats over a beer when they’re done. We’re here to help and to have a great time in the process, building The GREAT Community along the way – a solid network of athletes, trainers, designers, marketing professionals, friends and family, and lots more – making it possible for all of us to connect and ultimately grow.
