Carpool Creative Co-op

Justin | design,Misc | Wednesday, June 13th, 2007

Some of my co-workers from Iowa recently asked me to take part in a creative co-op. ‘What is a creative co-op?’ you might ask. Well, the short answer is that we’re essentially a design studio without a roof. We’re each sharing freelance projects based on the specific skills required. It’s a the sum of the whole is greater than the parts kind of thing. And it’s a fantastic opportunity to work even more with people I enjoy and admire (even if it is from a long distance).

As of the time that I’m writing this entry only our temporary site is available at carpoolcreative.com, but there are links to two of the other designers involved, Eric Kome and Jason Price, both exceptional talents. We’ll have a site available soon that includes information about the other members of the co-op including the very able Laura Abel, project manager extraordinaire, and the fantastic copywriter and CreativePro veteran Eric Stone (who also happens to be the funniest man on the planet, which also makes him one of the smartest). We’ll likely be partnering with some sales-types/account executives and some back-end developers to round it all out. Expect great things…
