Business With Purpose
Shift Creative is a boutique creative agency offering design and marketing services to business clients. Shift can support your team with efficient and highly creative design and marketing services.
Having spent more than two decades working in agencies and creative groups, we had a lot of perspective on how our own agency might operate. By listening to our clients we understood that many standard agency practices were restrictive and problematic. When Shift Creative was formed we wanted to do things differently.
Shift is small, on purpose. Our founders are the lead creatives who work directly with our clients. We believe that every project is better through collaboration and that working closely with our clients is our greatest strength.
We streamlined our processes, offering straight forward quoting without unwanted add-on services. Project inception is simplified, often just an email, allowing for a faster project flow and turnaround. By staying involved in our projects directly, we can provide prompt and responsive communication and reliable, on-time delivery of projects.
The result is a creative firm like no other. We are a fast and efficient team providing highly creative work exactly when you need it.

The year was 1994, the class was Offset Printing with Dr. Gullickson. On a September morning, amidst greasy-based inks and industrial paper cutters, two fresh-faced design students first met. A fast friendship was formed. They planned their class schedules together, consulted with each other on projects and laid the foundation for a working partnership that would shape their careers.
Twenty-five years later, having worked as the creative team in multiple agencies, our founders took action and realized their dream of forming their own agency. With a vision to conduct business more effectively and a goal of supporting positive change in the world, Shift Creative was born.
