Andi’s work for the 2010 Cultural Olympiad was nothing short of spectacular. Under intense deadline pressure Andi created a series of highly successful event programs, catalogues and other marketing collateral for this groundbreaking Olympic & Paralympic arts festival. Her work was consistently inspired, clean and well organized. She was always calm, pleasant and capable of discerning our needs and desires with minimal direction.
High Performance Creative.
We are a strategic creative firm with unmatched brand and design experience in the sports industry, delivered by a superstar team. We’re passionate about the work we do, and it shows.
We’ve been building our business since 2003, but our passion for sports started much earlier. We know the sports business and its challenges first hand. We’ve navigated non-profits, board and stakeholders approvals, limited budgets, and tight timelines, and have come out successfully on the other side.
The Epic Philosophy
High Performance Creative isn’t just a tagline, it’s how the Epic team approaches life! Our clients and partners are guaranteed: Enthusiastic, passionate and energetic conversations; Polished, professional and refined deliverables; Integrity in our approach; and Consistency in our process and design.
The core of our services involves building stellar brands, websites and graphic design. Every project is unique, so we have also found ourselves doing successful collaborations in areas such as social media, content marketing, app development and marketing. Once in a while, a blue unicorn of a project comes along where we get to tackle a building, RV or car wrap, or get to design a merchandise line.
We film, produce, and animate with our partners in video production. We will art direct and manage the project to ensure it fits with your vision.
We can art direct your photo shoot to ensure it aligns with your vision, and can recommend the best photographer for your project.
We can produce custom artwork illustration in-house, tailored to a brand, campaign or product.
Have different needs beyond the status quo? Beyond our in-house expertise, we work closely with external specialists in the focused areas of photography, content marketing, public relations, video production, mobile application development and copy writing to make your vision a reality. Want to push the envelope? Challenge accepted.
