Launch of New Design Firm
Catherine McIntyre and Terri Parent, formerly of PDI Creative Communication in Burlington, recently launched Stride Creative Group, a full-service creative partnership specializing in print design, web design and advertising. The two have capitalized on their 5-year working relationship to support the marketing efforts of Vermont-based businesses and non-profit organizations.
Parent, an Art Director for over 8 years, creates marketing and branding strategies for Stride’s clients. She designs corporate identities, marketing materials, web sites, advertisements, and signage — and writes marketing copy and radio scripts. McIntyre, an Editorial and Web Designer for over 6 years, also designs marketing materials, web sites, advertising, and signage, and offers the technical component of web development. She heads up media planning and implementation strategies, and writes marketing copy as well.
Stride has already experienced rapid growth, and is pleased with the prospect of adding to their staff within the next few months. “We never expected to outgrow our startup location so quickly, and be searching for a larger studio space this early in the game,” says McIntyre.
Stride’s clients include such notable Vermont organizations as the Vermont City Marathon, Chittenden County Transportation Authority (CCTA), Catamount Trail Association, Heritage Automotive Group, and Digital Horizons. The company is currently located in Williston, and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
