We had the good fortune of connecting with Megan Boese and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Megan, how does your business help the community?
I specifically try to work with clients who are working to make a good impact on the world, whether it be a church spreading the Good News or a workout studio improving the physical lives of their customers. My hope is that through great brand design and appropriate marketing, these great organizations and entrepreneurs will get noticed and have their chance to make their community, and maybe even the world, a better place.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
The main focus of In The Pines Creative, ITP as we call it, is to brand, or re-brand, small to medium-sized businesses and entrepreneurs. I also create websites for these clients that showcase their brand and their services. In The Pines Creative is known for the consistency it creates within a brand. What I am most proud of as a company are my clients. I strive to work with people who care about their impact on the world and how their business or services will make a positive difference. I believe what sets ITP apart from other design agencies is the fact that we not only provide a quality design but also value and strategy. In our brand development process, we have a discovery phase that includes brand research, a creative brief and mood board development before we ever take to the logo drawing board. Something else that sets In The Pines Creative apart, is the size. As a one-woman show, I understand small business challenges and make access to my services easy and customized to each client. I want my clients to consider me as part of their team. ITP is a low-cost business that doesn’t require a brick and mortar. The minimal expenses has made it easy for me to get where I am today business-wise. Thankfully, this has also allowed ITP to survive COVID-19. A difficult aspect of my business that I have recently become aware of through the pandemic, is the fact that rebrands and brand development in general are put on the back burner when clients are trying to get through this current economic crisis themselves.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Most of the itinerary would include getting out on all the great trails and uncovering fun places in the little Colorado towns surrounding us. This would include Leadville and maybe even throwing in a 14er. It would also include Color Coffee Roasters in Eagle and New Terrain Brewery in Golden. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My shoutout goes to my husband who influenced me to start In The Pines Creative in the first place. He has always had faith in my skills and abilities. He never let finances get in the way and kept me motivated. I also thank God for the continuous blessings He brings to my life and for keeping my business and our lives in His hands.
