Our home is the quaint seaside city of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, where we are truly blessed for the community we serve and the beautiful place we get to call home.

DARCI Creative has been at home in Portsmouth for over ten years, having originally resided on Bow Street with a view of the city’s iconic tugboats. Our current office has a spectacular view of the African Burying Ground, a public park and sacred place that reminds us to honor our history and treasure our community.

We’re big on community. Our team is proud to have branded and helped establish some of Portsmouth’s most well known businesses, from local community banks to popular retail shops. We also donate our branding and marketing services to non-profit organizations like Veterans Count and The Chamber Collaborative of Greater Portsmouth through long lasting pro-bono partnerships. These are just a few of the truly rewarding relationships we have nurtured with our vibrant Seacoast community – a community that has supported us for so many years.

Veteran’s Count is a philanthropic arm of Easterseals New Hampshire, which provides aid and services to veterans, military members and their families.

When Darci joined the Seacoast Chapter Board over six years ago, people simply didn’t know who Veterans Count was. We helped tighten the brand, redesigning their logo, creating a new positioning line (Supporting Our Military and their Families), and redesigning their website for each regional branch of Veterans Count.

Our execution included public relations, press release announcements, video production, and event branding and coordination for a variety of Veterans Count benefits (of which we provided design materials like programs, itineraries and the like). Two events that stand out are ones that we created and branded: the Pack & Boots 5K Road Race and their annual Gala, the S.O.S. “Salute Our Soldiers” dinner.

With our help, Veterans Count has blossomed into a well-known philanthropic organization in New Hampshire – and one that we are proud to be a part of.

The Child Advocacy Center is a nonprofit that works with a number of local partners in law and healthcare to provide a safe, nurturing environment for children victim to sexual and physical abuse.

When we first met them, the Child Advocacy Center wasn’t effectively communicating their brand and their mission with the community. They needed a brand refresh, as well as a welcoming online presence that was an accessible and safe place for the children and families they served.

We crafted a new logo for the Center with the hands of a child and adult coming together, with the tagline Turning Hurt Into Hope. We incorporated bright colors into their brand and website, making strategic decisions to empower these child victims through powerful branding. Our Senior Art Director, Regan got involved by organizing a Halloween-themed Party for a Purpose, a benefit whose proceeds went to the Child Advocacy Center. We love that she helped create something worthwhile from a fun event, and it’s a cause we are proud to get behind.

We have worked closely with the Chamber Collaborative of Greater Portsmouth (formerly the Greater Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce) for a number of years.

The Chamber first came to us with the need to revive their annual dinner and awards ceremony. It felt stale and lacking interest, and it was our job to revive it. So, we created street.life! – a lively and colorful brand that embodied what the dinner was all about. We went out into the community, interviewing sponsors, business owners and Portsmouth residents about what they loved about their city. We created videos, a landing page for the event, social media buildup, and a photo contest with the chance to win free tickets to street.life! With our help, the Chamber was able to bring energy back to their annual event – and sell out tickets in the process. Our positioning line? For the Love of Portsmouth.

The Chamber continues to reach out to us for their branding and marketing needs, including a rebrand with a focus on community collaboration, as well as a project we named Mission Forward to announce new changes coming to the Chamber and upcoming events in the community. Each time, we have delivered on-brand logos, naming, video production, and a wealth of other marketing tactics up our sleeves. It has been a lasting collaboration that we are proud to be a part of.
