The Interns Are Coming

As the weather heats up and our awesome spring interns prep for graduation, we welcome seven new students to the agency. Our summer interns, selected during our second annual agency bootcamp, join us from universities across the state. We can’t wait to pick their brains for bright ideas and, of course, the latest buzzwords. It’s lit!

We’re pretty big on collaboration.

Stroll through the agency, and you’ll find us bouncing ideas off one another in front of the crayon wall or concepting in Twister. Naturally, Jon, Alice, and Scott were right at home at NC State University this month when they volunteered to review student portfolios. Design students talked through their work, then the Clean Design trio offered industry insight and pro tips. And who knows, they may have met a future addition to our team!

Something New and Shiny

We know collaboration is the key to success. Our CEO, Natalie Perkins, was awarded the key to the city by the town of Fuquay-Varina on behalf of our agency. The award was given as recognition of our rebranding work with the town. We collaborated with Fuquay-Varina to reflect their welcoming attitude through creation of a new logo, motto, and brand — because we believe that Fuquay-Varina truly is “a dash more” than your average city.

Everyone Raise Your Glass…

When Durham Distillery opened last year, its goal was to bring in modern methods for making gin and produce the best gin in the South. As we celebrate its first birthday, a toast is in order for all the distillery achieved! This fall, Durham Distillery was voted No. 2 in USA Today’s 10Best List of Craft Gin Distilleries in the country against fierce competition, marking a total of 21 awards in its first year. We’ll drink to that!

Be an Agency of Change

Chief executive officer Natalie Perkins and chief creative officer Scott Scaggs traveled to Portland, Oregon last month to join Worldwide Partners Inc. at the 2016 North America Region Meeting. The focus? Creating and sustaining change. Here at home, this is something we think a lot about as we grow and expand. Natalie represented Clean Design in a panel discussion about new business and shared our two cents.

Banding Together

Kay Yow had a vision of banding together on and off the court to fight all women’s cancers. The former NC State University women’s head basketball coach believed her life was greatly extended by research trials. Therefore, the Kay Yow Cancer Fund supports women’s cancer research. We are proud to be partnering with the Kay Yow Foundation on a strategic branding initiative leading up to its 10-year anniversary.

We’re proud to work with the Lung Cancer Initiative of North Carolina in their mission to support, education, and improve the lives of lung cancers patients and their families. We’ll be working with them on public relations, social media, and creative concepts as they continue to drive awareness to this issue near and dear to our hearts.
