Flipside Creative is a marketing and design studio that does great work for good people. No jerks. What that means is that the Flipside team – a Motley Crew of rare talent, massive creativity, and passionate personas – works only with organizations who use their products or services to make the world better. They bring their creativity to several sectors: health & wellness, environmental, outdoor & adventure, clean living, biotechnology, and more. Flipside purposely has no niche. What they offer consistently is big time strategic ideation with an undercurrent of kindness. They solve marketing challenges with both the boilerplate stuff (as needed) – logos, stationery, websites, newsletters – and some wild and woolly, get-noticed stuff too (when relevant) – guerilla campaigns, packaging, product creation, and event concepts. When they’re not creating for community game-changers, the team is working tirelessly for local non-profits offering free (yes! Free!) marketing without a catch. It’s utter bliss.
