A professional resource for communicators and their clients, the Colorado Collective is an affiliated group of seasoned professionals in the creative, communications, and marketing fields. It offers clients three key benefits over traditional agency offerings: experience, efficiency, and economy.
Members of the Collective offer a wide range of services including sales/marketing research, graphic design, website development, photography, illustration, video, 2D/3D animation, voice and camera talent, writing, editing, print brokering and magic performances. All members are required to have more than 10 years’ experience in their chosen field as a requirement for membership. This guarantees that clients will work with seasoned professionals and not junior staffers.
The Collective began as a group of former StorageTek employees in marketing and visual communications teams who met regularly to discuss how Sun’s recent acquisition could affect them. The group expanded to include more professionals that would help round out its capabilities and client offerings. As a result, many members of the Collective have diverse backgrounds and strong business relationships, making it easier for them to partner with fellow members on client projects.
Members of the Collective are all local Colorado small businesses that are made up of independent, freelance and contractors. Most have modest facilities or home-based operations. As such, they offer lower overhead than large, traditional agencies. As entrepreneurs, they are more committed to client successes than typical agency employees.
Clients can engage the Collective by contacting any individual member. If additional services are needed, the initial contact person can introduce or recommend other members or act as a project manager for the client. The group’s website offers a directory of members, their specialties and contact information.
