Creative Juice, LLC has recently relocated to a new office space in the Fairlie-Poplar District of Downtown Atlanta. This historic district is a hidden gem in the Downtown area, creating a cohesive network of small and large businesses, local and chain restaurants, and old and new artistic spaces. As the commercial hub for the Southeast and the historical business district of Atlanta, commercial resources are plentiful in the Fairlie-Poplar District. While these practical amenities are appreciated, the neighborhood is especially unique due to its less-tangible contributions. The constant buzz of students and professionals walking around the streets aids in cultivating a creative vibe that is felt on every street corner.
“I chose the Fairlie-Poplar district of Downtown Atlanta as the location of our business because it is a special and unique part of our city that fosters collaborative and creative work environments,” said Octavia Gilmore, the company’s founder and Chief Creative Officer. “I am able to gain design inspiration when I walk around the neighborhood every day.”
The Fairlie-Poplar District boasts some amazing street art and several concert venues such as the iconic Tabernacle. The countless opportunities to connect to the vibrant and creative energy are invaluable, especially to a creative agency such as Creative Juice.
“Our offices feature giant full length windows, so even while working at our desks, we feel a connection to our neighborhood,” says Adam Rogers, one of Creative Juice’s lead designers.
Octavia started Creative Juice in 2013. Being a young company comprised of all Millennials hasn’t prevented the agency from developing a strong portfolio. Instead, their young energy allows them to take a fresh design approach to all projects they work on. Octavia’s team, called The Juicers, is a forward thinking group that stays up to date with current trends. Creative Juice specializes in graphic design, web design, UX/UI, and packaging. Some of their projects include annual reports, brochures, infographics, branding, stationery kits, presentations, logos, and trade show materials. The agency is small, which translates to personalized attention and prompt response times.
“At Creative Juice, we constantly advise clients on the benefits of updating their websites,” remarks Octavia. “It’s important to practice what you preach, so we recently made some updates to our own website. Of course, we want our site to attract clients, but for us, it’s also a part of our portfolio to show clients what we are capable of creating for them.”
The updates Octavia is referring to are now accessible on itscreativejuice.com.
In addition to a new office space, the Juicers have also redesigned the Creative Juice website to include some exciting updates such as parallax scrolling. This is a technique web designers use to create an illusion of depth in a two-dimensional scene. The new website also features a sticky menu, so that it is accessible from any page without having to scroll back to the top. Creative Juice also designed the mobile website to be responsive on tablets and phones. Other features of the new website include a full width layout, hero images, easy share buttons, a shop featuring eBook downloads, and a weekly blog. The full width layout is beneficial because it creates a clean look, without adding distracting verbiage or icons on the sides of pages. Hero images are large banner images that stand out on a web page. Easy share buttons are a great way to have visitors share content. Visitors can simply highlight the text from a webpage and share it via Twitter or Facebook. The shop is a quick way to purchase logos and other materials to help grow business. Finally, the blog is a wonderful resource for people interested in growing their own business. The blog posts cover a wide range of topics including tips and tricks about branding, marketing, and web design.
The new Creative Juice office is located at:
90 Fairlie Street NW, Suite 100
Atlanta, GA 30303
Office hours are:
Monday – Friday
9 am – 5:30 ish pm
