Creative can help the community.

Every person has the capacity to make the world a better place. Lofty sentiment? We don't think so. It starts with a simple positive outlook, a supportive work environment and a super creative team willing to do something amazing for the people around us.

Pro Bono Work

Our community is everything to us – and we take pride in giving back. One way we do this is through pro bono and discounted services for nonprofit organizations. We ask that potential partners review these considerations before initiating a discussion:

  1. Is the timeline flexible? Many of our deadlines are not, and flexibility with discounted work is essential for our team.
  2. Do you have any budget? Our services could be donated, and we can help you plan for execution, but you will need to arrange separate funding for printing, web hosting and ad placements.
  3. Will you trust our recommendations? Our studio will listen intently to your goals and needs. However, any art direction should be left to our internal team, not external committees.

If your organization can answer "yes" to these three questions, then feel free to reach out to us for an initial consultation. We’re excited to learn about your work.

Giving in 2016

2016 was our biggest year of giving ever, for both charitable giving and in-kind donations. We proudly donated $10,000 in cash and $110,000 in services last year, and have hopes of making an even bigger impact in 2017.

 

“Over the past two years Christiansen Creative has donated a massive amount of time and energy to support Prairie Burn Music Festival, a fundraising festival for YMCA Camps that has allowed hundreds of kids to come to camp who otherwise would not be able.

When you see what they have created, both for us and for so many other businesses and causes, it is immediately obvious that the Christiansen Creative team is uniquely talented. The emotion, the attention to detail, and the originality of every piece they create is on another level.

What you don’t know until you work with them is that on top of all that they are the most pleasant and enthusiastic people in the world. It’s no overstatement to say that every interaction I have had with the Christiansen staff has made my day better.

I, and all the staff and volunteers that work to make Prairie Burn come to life, could not be more appreciative of all that Tricia and her team have done for us.”
