The San Diego graphic design agency Hall and Lien Creative has been rebranded and renamed to Elevate Creative in 2013. After a very successful number of years named Hall and Lien Creative, they decided it was time for a new look and a new name that better encompassed what their company is all about, and what it does for their clients.

Along with the new brand, Elevate Creative has redesigned their website, the new look can be seen here: http://www.elevatecreativeinc.com/

Elevate Creative will be offering the same premium graphic design services, including logo design, brochure design, package design, advertising, marketing materials and branding.

These ads urging people to sign an online petition to save our seas won a Gold Lion at Cannes in 2009. That’s not Photoshop: the wonderful colored-pencil sculptures of underwater life are by South African artist Jennifer Maestre.

Ideal print ads from 2008 for Scrabble, via Hungary. Ideal, because there’s not a word of copy and they make me want to play Scrabble. And I hate Scrabble. Second ad below.
