So you may be wondering how we came up with the name Treefeather Creative… well the “term” treefeather comes from the imagination of my husband, Jordan (the illustrator extrodinare). He has always perceived the world in a unique way, which would explain why it was only natural for him as a young boy to call leaves “treefeathers.”
At Treefeather Creative we visualize your idea in an innovative and memorable way to effectively communicate with your target audience and move your business into the spotlight. With skill sets in both design and web development, we are able to offer the complete package to make your brand beautiful, functional, and consistent across all media. Whether you are in need of print and/or digital designs, we work with you closely to develop a creative solution that will help your business reach it’s full marketing potential.
Having worked with start-ups, small businesses and organizations to national companies, we understand how to target the right audience, stay true to specific branding guidelines, or create a brand from scratch. We enjoy working with you as a team, ensuring you are involved through the entire process.
We take the time to understand your “Brand’s DNA” by researching your products and/or services, history, values, target audience, past and current marketing materials, and competitors, all to help understand what makes your business or organization unique and how to make it stand out.
A crucial part of successful marketing and design is asking questions. By asking the right questions you are opening an opportunity to reframe the problem, redefine constraints, and open the field to a more innovative answer. By doing so, we can truly understand what your needs are and develop a solution that is on target and within budget.
We believe design isn’t just about making things look pretty (although we do it anyway), it’s about implementing our research and knowledge to visually communicate in the most effective way that will grab your audience’s attention and position your business or organization for success.
To continue to grow as a business or organization it is helpful to see the results of your marketing efforts to gain information about your audience. By working with the client, we help implement systems to track this information using tools such as QR codes, google analytics, event registration, email sign up forms, and questionnaires.
“We first reached out to Treefeather Creative to help with branding for our annual fundraiser, Montrose Oktoberfest. I had seen their work with Horsefly Brewing Company and found the artwork to be fun, fresh and engaging.
Leanna created a beautiful logo and strong branding for Oktoberfest that we will use for years to come. She designed posters, postcards, web and print ads to create a full promotional package for the event. Since then, All Points Transit calls on Treefeather Creative on a regular basis for all different kinds of design projects.
We have become accustomed to the high level of service and dependable quality Treefeather provides at an affordable rate; but we know from working with other designers throughout the years that we should not take this for granted! We are so thankful to have this amazing talent right here in Montrose! Thank you, Leanna!”
Not happy with my current web/graphic person, I was keeping an eye open to who in Montrose did web and graphics. It was not that the past person I used was bad, they just were unresponsive.
The Pro cycling tour was coming through Montrose and I caught a glimpse of the new web site to promote the event and looked for the designer….it happened to be Treefeather Creative.
I called Leanna and we began to work together. Working with Leanna at Treefeather solved all of the problems I was having in the past. Not only is Leanna responsive, she thinks of marketing approaches that I would never have thought of.
Working with Leanna is like having a graphic and web person on my staff. I could never afford such a thing being a small business, but Leanna treats all of my projects as if they were her own. Leanna is cost conscience and yet will direct my projects to have them look professional and current.
I have since had Leanna take over four new business ventures that I am a principal in. I also try refer Leanna whenever I can….but to be honest I am somewhat selfish as I want to keep her for myself.
I am now confident that my web site and any promotional materials I use are the best I afford and I am always proud of the work she does for every business I represent.
Leanna served as designer and animator in the Campus Design Studio during the last two years of her studies at Colorado Mesa University (formerly Mesa State College). As lead designer, she was a strong team player and invaluable asset to the design studio. She exhibited freshness, dedication, love of craft, and a strong commitment to excellence. She directed and created projects in print, web and animation.
Leanna is a very talented designer. She approaches each creative challenge with a firm understanding of the design process. Her conceptual skills, process drawings, and studies reveal thoughtful and thorough design solution considerations. She is committed to the development of a full range of process components beginning with research and ending with fully–rendered solution. Leanna’s work is always completed in a timely fashion with an eye toward client input and concerns.
I recommend Leanna Johnson without hesitation.
Treefeather is fast, creative and understands what is needed!
Leanna does a great job and is easy to work with 🙂
Region 10’s website was archaic, difficult to navigate and stale. We needed a face-lift to say the least and a site that would create a 21st century look and feel.
Treefeather first meet with the Region 10 management team, heard our needs, asked questions we had never even considered, listened to our wants and then began developing possible options we could choose from.
We selected Treefeather for a combination of reasons. One, Ms. Johnson herself, she projected a high command of her product and an understand of our needs and wants. Adding to that was the patience shown during the interactions with Ms Johnson. Needless to say, the knowledge base we had on what we would like on our website was remedial but with Ms Johnson’s knowledge and ability to “dummy it down” for us, it made the decision an easy one.
We now have a website that is both highly functional and attractive. Our visitors can navigate the site quickly and easily. Have access to a calendar of events that was not available before and the site stays current with on-going presentations and training classes.
Working with Treefeather was a very positive experience and a very professional interchange. Region 10 would highly recommend Treefeather Creative to anyone. We have mentioned her company and Ms Johnson specifically to several business people.
Leanna joined a small team I organized with the mission to create a first class website to promote the sale of a truly unique and beautiful cattle ranch in Colorado. The website is outstanding – exceeding my high expectations. It was a team effort and Leanna made it all come together. I can highly recommend Leanna for any similar task.
“Leanna has done outstanding work for the Montrose Area Bicycle Alliance. She has a unique ability to hear an idea that only exists in somebody’s imagination and make it into a visual product that represents the idea, topic, or business very well. Leanna is easy to work with and communicates very well. She comes with my highest recommendation.”
“Whenever I have worked with Leanna, I have found her very reliable, uniquely creative and a pleasure to work with. I’d highly recommend her for design and for having a strong sense of responsibility and quick timing.”
Professional, timely and very easy to work with.
Excellent service, easy to work with, and we loved the creative design!
Leanna is a very competent designer with great ideas, and is super sweet to boot.
