BRANDS WE'VE WORKED WITH

With TLC Creative, clients receive an all-too-rare combination of thoughtful, evidence-based strategic thinking and exceptional creative work. They are partners who listen carefully, ground their ideas in research and they work hard to express strategic messages in ways that will resonate with target audiences. And they are fun to work with, too.

JONATHAN GRAHAM Associate Vice President for Marketing and Communications Earlham College

We valued having a partner who quickly understood the urgency of our needs and was unafraid to jump in quickly and bring together the collateral for our capital campaign. TLC Creative helped us accomplish our goals and achieve great results – website traffic has increased tremendously, and we’ve received bequest notifications totaling over $5 million so far.

LYNN ANDREWS Vice President for Advancement George Fox University

We trust TLC Creative to deliver content that is informed by data yet sensitive to key stakeholders. Their knowledge of higher ed and ability to work well across divisions is an asset that keeps us coming back to TLC Creative. They take time to understand the people, as well as the project.

ROB WESTERVELT Executive Vice President of Enrollment and Marketing George Fox University

Tamara Cissna impressed us with her collaborative style, listening skills, and genuine desire to understand. She demonstrated an incisive grasp of our identity, which reflects a diversity of theological persuasion, ethnicity, gender and age. With her expertise in communication, contextual understanding, and communication skills, we were able to create award-winning marketing pieces.
