Results-driven design + communication strategy
for startups, small businesses and non-profits.
what we do
What words do your customers use to describe your products and services? What makes you memorable and different? Together, we will show and tell your customers what sets you apart.
A website is almost always the most powerful tool that an organization has for communicating with its prospects and customers. It is the flagship communications platform where new prospects conduct their due diligence.
Do you have a communications roadmap? A thoughtful combination of your goals, business milestones, budget, target audience and ROI drives our strategy and recommendations.
We are well versed at delivering messages in extraordinary ways, including crafty combinations of social media, advertising, public relations, email marketing, guerrilla marketing, direct mail marketing and beyond.
Are your print and digital materials eye- catching? Do they reflect your brand and resonate with your audience? Our award-winning graphic design effectively carries your brand across mediums, devices and experiences.
We love research. It provides a better understanding of the competitive landscape, your audience, and gives us a clear idea of the challenges and opportunities ahead, enabling us to deliver effective design and communication strategies.
You're busy doing what you do best. Suffice it to say, you don't necessarily have time to focus on the branding, design and communication side of things. That's where we come in, because frankly, we love this stuff. We'd be delighted to help you make your mark.
Founded in 2005, gaiacreative, llc, is an award-winning full-service agency operated by Sarah Douglas and Jessica Henley. We're not your typical marketing and design firm. We think big without big office overhead. We brainstorm concepts on mountain bikes and skis. We get our inspiration from life's rich experiences. And we fill up on those experiences as often as possible.
Jessica is a strategist, implementer, communicator, and thinker. She may be found brainstorming your next headline on her morning trail run, and she loves coming up with communication plans, implementing them and seeing the return on investment. Her pedigree includes a Bachelors Degree in Business & Marketing and a Masters Degree in Business Administration. She spent many years working for advertising agencies in Colorado and California.
Sarah's approach to design is clean, well crafted, and thoughtful. Her design experience over the past 21 years has included everything from corporate identity and branding, product and packaging, websites, all manner of print materials, design of odd objects (solar-powered trailers and the like), and more. Sarah enjoys understanding clients' goals and bringing them to life through typography, color, pattern and images.

Having collaborated with gaiacreative for 15 years, I can attest to the firm's stunning creativity, customer service and professionalism. They rise to my every challenge, whether high design or low budget, and never fail to surprise me with their imaginative solutions. As a consultant, my clients' projects come and go, but my relationship with gaiacreative is a constant.
Lara Whitley | Marketing Consultant
I have worked with gaiacreative since 2009, and from the beginning they have been outstanding to work with. They listen carefully to client interest and needs, and focus their efforts on meeting these. They are able to turn around beautiful and creative design pieces in short periods of time, and do the same in researching and securing potential PR and advertising avenues. I couldn't recommend anyone more highly.

Steve Skadron | Spooner Skadron LLC
gaiacreative’s outstanding mix of temperament and talent has served me well for many years—in three different publications-director roles at nonprofits, ranging from small boarding schools to major state universities. They have impressed me with excellent creative ideas, patience with organizational variables, and a problem-solving mindset. They're fair, prompt, and always a pleasure to work with: a client couldn’t ask for better.
