We worked with Ace Creative on an animated video shining light on the impact HGSE alumni are making in the education sector. Ashley and her team were wonderful in helping us establish the storyline and illustration approach. They were creative, thought-partners and I would work with them again.

Ashley and her team were a breath of fresh air in helping our organization with a long overdue rebranding. Ace Creative never missed a beat in incorporating all of our thoughts and ideas into the creative brief process and translating that into a new look with tools that will help us achieve our goal to raise funds and awareness about our mission.

When we started the process of redesigning our website, I was quite overwhelmed with the process. Ashley provided an outline of steps along with a concise time-table which provided clear and realistic expectations. It was amazing to be part of the design process and to watch the seamless transition between Ashley and Irene (much like a successful relay team) as the website design unfolded. Ace Creative is a great organization and we are extremely pleased with the results.

Ace Creative has helped our school develop a cohesive look and feel that allows us the flexibility to highlight our unique strengths while keeping with the overall Tufts visual brand identity. The Ace Creative team is friendly, responsive, professional, and, most importantly, driven to meet our needs.

Ace Creative designed a beautiful logo, brand identity, and a website for Simply Erinn’s Unisex Hair Salon. I was amazed at the initial brand concepts they came up with—it was as if they had known us for ages. They are very creative, efficient, professional, and all-around great people. Simply Erinn’s was desperate for a brand makeover and Ace Creative is exactly what we had been looking for.

Ace Creative has brought an unparalleled level of creativity, organization, and industry expertise to our magazine. In the redesign process, they blended our institution’s long-held traditions with a fresh look and feel—and we’ve put our full trust in them ever since.
