CRE[8] Maker City Brand

Our goal is to support and promote our diverse maker community and raise awareness of how critical local makers are to the economic vitality of the area. We know small makers don't have big ad budgets and that's where we can help with joint branding and a shared marketing campaign. We've created a brand that all our local makers and creatives can use--on packaging, labels, social media and more. And the more we work together, the stronger our community becomes.

Why CRE[8]? Our Loop logo is built upon the infinity symbol, spray painted on city sidewalks to indicate the start of a public works project. We love the allure of a new project as well as the concept of infinite potential when it comes to our community of makers, artisans, crafters, and cooks. And in true creative fashion, our team tipped this symbol on its side and our brand was born.

So makers, use your brand with abandon. Emboss it on leather, carve it into wood, sew it on a scarf, or ice it on cookies. Stamp it on your packaging and use it in your social media posts. Use it to show your pride--in your work and in our community of makers.
