g-a-i-a what? how do you say that?
Gaia (pronounced ‘guy-uh’) means earth mother. We like to think of ourselves that way, and we try to treat the planet well so we can feel good about passing it on to our kids. We focus on green business practices, print on recycled paper and aim to tread lightly on the earth. Sarah’s home office looks out onto her vegetable garden, and Jessica is

JESSICA AND SARAH IN AUSTRALIA, 1983
gaiacreative, llc is a creative powerhouse of two sisters – Jessica Henley and Sarah Douglas – with over two decades of combined marketing and graphic design experience. Growing up, Jessica would come up with creative projects and ways to sell and market them. Sarah spent lots of time cutting images and headlines out of magazines, creating collages and writing stories. Jessica went off to school and pursued marketing and advertising; Sarah ventured into graphic design and journalism. Together, they make a pretty darn good pair.
