Creating the next generation of creatives


In 2014, a group of local creatives with backgrounds in photography, graphic design, small business development, and urban planning decided to create a creative agency meant to bring brand awareness to local companies. This is how Crawford Group was born. Early on, Crawford saw a need to provide professional development for young people in what is considered the “creative economy.”

Creative economy refers to the socio-economic potential of activities that trade with creativity, knowledge, and information. At its center, the creative economy is an industry that lays at the crossroads of arts, culture, business, and technology. From this natural demand in creative services, Crawford began working closely with DUSD to create robust programs that help create the next generation of creatives.
