Welcome to Candid Creative
We help makers, creators, and small business owners find their ideal customer through beautiful imagery, modern web design, and original brand identity.
We believe that industry born out of passion makes for the best kind of businesses. We love serving individuals who love what they do more than how they make money doing it. That said, we believe that chasing a dream can also become a way to make a living and we have helped writers, product developers, photographers, chefs, bloggers, doctors, and many other small businesses do just that.
We believe if you love what you do, you won't work a day in your life. It's the dream we're chasing too here at Candid Creative. And yet, building a business
out of a passion often means being inundated with tasks - accounting, legal, production, marketing, distribution, you name it - which can make following your dream feel a lot less like fun and a lot more like work.
So here's what we propose: allow us at Candid Creative to do what we love so that you can focus on what you love. We'll do the heavy lifting by creating a brand that attracts your future fans, influencers, and customer base, while you work on the thing that will keep them coming back. Together, we'll create a platform that showcases your business and allows you to succeed making your dream a reality. Are you ready?
We design websites through Squarespace and Showit5. From custom imagery, content, and clear call-to-actions that promote sales, we create a boutique website experience for your customers. Our websites are built with SEO integration and responsive mobile design bringing your ideal client from every available platform.
We offer professional artistic headshots, product photography, and styled imagery for social media and commercial use. Let us know what your particular need is and we'd love to give a custom quote!
A logo that stands out makes a big difference with customers. We help create minimalistic logos that are memorable and keep your brand in the forefront of your customer's mind.
We also offer assistance with social media strategy, business & brand consulting, and copywriting.
