Today, Creative Tampa Bay launches its new brand and Website. Creative Tampa Bay Chair Mark Sena said the timing could not be more right. "The brand that launched our organization six years ago was no longer relevant to what we are today. This new brand reflects our evolving organization, community and the creative individuals and organizations that we unite."
Internet marketing firm atLarge, Inc. donated Creative Tampa Bay’s branding and Website as part of its Dream Large program. The Dream Large program awards non-profits the digital marketing tools that help them fulfill their missions. Recent Dream Large recipients have included the Glazer Children’s Museum and Girls Inc. of Sarasota County.
atLarge Founder Anand Pallegar said Creative Tampa Bay was selected because its efforts to stimulate the creative economy by uniting arts, culture, business, education and economic development are pivotal to our region. “Before ‘creative economies’ was a catch phrase, Creative Tampa Bay was connecting the minds, organizations and initiatives that build a sense of place and a sustainable business climate. Their work, whether it’s conducting research like the "Young and the Restless" and "Tampa Bay: Things Look Different Here" to help businesses attract and retain young, talented creatives or co-producing educational events like the "Florida Boomer Lifestyle Conference," is changing the way we live and work.”
