Our Journey as a Public Relations, Marketing & Web Design Firm Begins...

It was 2009. The first iPhone was introduced, and people were using Facebook to “poke” each other. And while you were adding the newly released Kindle to your holiday shopping list, Jan Carpenter and Laura Reed formed Cork Tree Creative. The intent? To provide clients with quality marketing services to include graphic design, website design and public relations that were all-inclusive and under-one-roof.

Today, our staff has grown, expanding services to include all the components of modern-day marketing. Search engine optimization, Google Analytics, social media and other digital marketing services that offer our clients multiple options and numerous platforms to spread the word about their products and services.

Cork Tree Creative's Vision

You may think we have an unusual vision statement. We want to be liked. We want our clients to like us, enjoy our partnership, and want to do great things with us. We cannot be successful without great customer collaboration. And we believe the magic happens when the following components fall into place:

As your marketing and public relations warriors, it is our main goal to understand your business, your needs and your goals for success.
We take all of the information and data that you provide us with and create a custom marketing program to suit you. You want an edge on the competition? We will work with you to attain the leverage you desire with ideas, teamwork and our years of marketing prowess.
It's easy to laugh when you like your clients, your job, and the people you work with every day. Our team has fun working together and we laugh a lot. So far, that has translated into a long list of happy, steadfast clients that continue to utilize our services time and time again.
