STUDENT MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
At Crema, we believe in working with students to build their skills as they prepare to begin their careers. The Crema team offers real-world experience and mentorship, and this program has been a resounding success with the students, our team, and our clients. Students cycle through our program on a regular basis, often leading to additional work and industry positions. Check out what they have to say!
“As a student in the late semesters of my Graphic Design program I had the opportunity to intern with Crema Communications. What impressed me most was the concern shown for what I was going to get out of the internship rather than what I was going to do for Crema Communications. It was clear to me that the intent of the Crema intern program was to support, nurture and guide new designers, helping shape the future of the industry.”
THE FACTS OF LIFE
Crema started as a project collaboration between 3 freelancers with a passion for helping people reach their goals. Crema continues to work hard to find solutions for all of their clients through strategy, design, and implementation .
ANNUAL COFFEES CONSUMED
As with many great ideas, the inspiration for Crema is rooted in coffee shops. Coffee continues to be what fuels the creative fires of Crema and while we enjoy a finely poured espresso, we can be just as happy to enjoy an extra-large Timmie’s.
PAID CLIENT PROJECTS
At Crema, we work extremely hard to deliver high quality results for all of our clients, every time. How do we do this? By giving our clients 100% effort approximately 80% of the time. Which leaves 20% of our time left for…
PAYING IT FORWARD
A part of our company culture is to use our skills and talents to give back 20% of our time to non-profits, charities, and local volunteer organizations. This makes the world a little better, and keeps our skills and passions sharp doing what we love.
The Crema team is built around culture first. We work with people that are passionate about using their skills to bring amazing results for our clients. From our core team to our contractors and our interns, these values are key to being a part of Crema. If you’re interested in joining the Crema team, get in touch.
A Dad and Husband first. The rest of the time I am a designer, teacher, speaker, and community volunteer. I love helping clients reach their business goals.
