About

Born out of a passion to do good...

...and do what we love.

Underground Creative started as a casual conversation. After working at other various marketing and design agencies for many years, three friends got together and started batting around an idea:

“Hey, what if we started our own firm? What if we kept our services really affordable? What if we put the customer first in everything we do?” (Radical ideas, we know.)

What followed were weeks of after-hours meetings, theorizing how we could make it happen.

“What would we even call our company?”

Little did we know, that singular question would start the ball rolling on one of the most unconventional, backwards, and absolutely wonderful adventures we’ve ever experienced.

Hundreds of options were thrown around for possible company names — and just as soon, hundreds were discarded. Then the magic happened…

“What about the name Underground?”

It encompassed everything we were shooting for — the entire mentality of our business in one word: a company going against the grain, producing high quality work without breaking the bank.

Once we nailed down our logo and voice we realized that we had more than just the fun, pretty stuff to do (ugh, designers).

This is where it gets really interesting:

Our office? It’s in the basement of a commercial kitchen downtown.
Our business agreement? It was signed on the hood of a car in the parking lot of a local coffee shop.
Our bank account? It was opened in a trailer, since the bank was being remodeled at the time.

Every step of the way, getting this business off the ground has been unconventional and backwards – and yet, it has felt like the perfect progression from day one.

Enough of the gushy stuff — let's get down to brass tacks:

At Underground, we’ve got over 50 years of combined design and marketing experience. We’ve built brands, websites, and marketing campaigns for medical professionals, restaurants and caterers, municipal organizations, auto dealership groups, local events, universities, realtors, contractors, musicians…the list could go on and on!

We take our clients from start to finish, expertly navigating them through every step of the journey. We can build you a comprehensive brand identity, a gorgeous and high-functioning website, and then our experienced marketing team will ensure you land in front of a tailor-made audience to reach your highest potential.
