We are verve

A CREATIVE STUDIO
Verve Creative Studio

Verve is a creative studio located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, serving the Midwest and beyond. We collaborate with business owners, creatives and marketing agencies to help companies define their brand with creative services that produce digital and print marketing results.

How are we defined? There are aspects that are undefinable which is what makes verve unique. Creating content that evokes an emotion requires viewing the world a little bit differently. We flourish in that imaginative world, the space between dream and reality.

Marketing a business successfully also takes time, patience, resourcefulness and the ability to adapt. Our goal is to make marketing and branding a less scarier monster while offering affordable yet kick ass content creation. So, we’re pretty much the ghost busters of marketing and branding. Who you gonna call?

Verve…Creative Studio is who you call. Nevermind, as you were…

ABOUT THE OWNER
Wannette Doerrfeld
Wannette DoerrfeldMultimedia Ninja

I have 15 years of experience working in collaborative, results-driven, creative environments. My expertise spans strategy to execution. I engage both sides of my brain to take on challenges from both strategic and creative perspectives. I’ve cultivated analytical, managerial, and technical skills on top of my solid foundations in visual design and creativity. To put it simply, I like to figure things out from start to finish and top to bottom, to end up with functional, creative and successful solutions.

Services

WEB DESIGN | BRANDING | CONTENT CREATION | SEO

In this new media age, marketing is no longer a tactic used to sell stuff. It’s the art of storytelling that moves the audience to act. Stories spark emotion, are used to learn and help us make sense of the world which is why storytelling is at the heart of everything we create.

WEB DESIGN

We create websites with two important concepts in mind…simplicity and usability. Fully integrated with your logo identity and business color profile and coded for fast loading, ease of use, and simple upgrade in the future.

Branding and visual identity are among the most important aspects of a successful business. We will create and help define a brand for your business that is consistent, creative and differentiates from competitors.

We have a passion for creative imagery, moving and still, cinematic and photojournalistic style. From drones to gimbals fitted with DSLR’s and Adobe expert certifications, our tools and skill set are ideal for creating beautiful content on-the-go.

SEO

We began as a web design studio but over the years have cultivated an extensive knowledge of online marketing including search engine optimization. Building a website is actually only the beginning. We can help it get found.
