Sparq Creative Solutions, LLC came from the crazy dream of myself and a couple high school buddies who didn’t know the first thing about running a business. After finding success in the organization Business Professionals of America through our small business management team, we had a sit down meeting where the “What if we made this a real business?” question was first brought up. With only one presentation under our belts and encouragement from our instructor we went about making Sparq a real business who could work with real clients.
Our first year as a “real business” went surprisingly well. We filed for our LLC and targeted local mexican restaurants as our first clients (because that sounds like a good idea right?). We developed reward campaigns, designed business cards, printed T-shirts, took pictures of food for new menus. We took any work that we could get our hands on and pretty soon the work started picking up.
Unfortunately for us, living in the middle of Indiana, we ran out of local mexican restaurants to do business with rather quickly. Around the same time our genius accounting and finance partner, Scott, accepted a full ride scholarship to study at two universities (yes, at the same time) and moved to North Carolina. Korbin and I doubled down on our skill sets. Korbin found clients, I designed whatever they needed.
This approach went quite smoothly until Korbin’s itch to travel the world as a journalist meant he could no longer be the recruitment arm of Sparq. I was left with a decision; close shop or double down and keep making stories.
Five years after asking “What if we made this a real business?” Sparq is collaborating with clients all across the US making brands, organizations, and their stories memorable. Our team, tools, and hair have changed over the past five years but our mission remains the same with one minor difference: we don't just make your brand better; we make it memorable.
Whether you're starting a business, revamping an existing organization, or looking for a partner to launch a new campaign; we would love to help tell your story and make your brand memorable.
Get in touch
Finding someone to represent the organization you have poured time, effort, and energy into can be a bit nerve-wracking. Before we produce anything in the voice of your organization we want to learn more about who that voice is, what it represents, and why it does what it does. We’d love to grab lunch or meet over coffee!
