BBQ, Country Club Plaza, Power & Light District, Worlds of Fun, The Royals, The Chiefs and PDG+creative. Just a few of the places that come to mind when you think about Kansas City, MO.
Wait!?! PDG+creative is in KC? When did that happen?
Growth. Both in terms of of clients and team culture.
Through a few acquaintences I have had the pleasure of making some great connections in KC. Most recently I was asked to help with the marketing for Rise Fast, which is a conference that teaches millennials how to grow within their company by bringing value to the place they work. On top of that, the market in KC is just absolutely exploding. There are new start ups every day and we have the opportunity to help them grow.
Our soft opening was August 15 and our official opening is set for September 15.
Yes! They are definitely a big part of our ability to grow in KC by helping us spread our established reputation through introductions and word of mouth. Honestly, it's been a bit like a bigger Bartlesville. The people are very warm - it's refreshing!
Yes. For sure a couple of sales/account manager positions. However, our main focus will be to increase our staff in Bartlesville to handle the majority of the workload.
At the get go, once a month. As traffic increases I will need to devote more time there.
This last year has been the most transformative since I began my role in leadership at PDG. We've completely changed our approach to the way we engage with our clients. All Access has given us the ability to serve clients in ways we never thought possible. We will continue to excel and grow. We are definitely far from perfect, but each day we are presented with challenges and opportunites to learn new lessons and exceed expectations.

Bartlesville, Oklahoma – February 13, 2013 – In February 2013, local design agency PDG+creative celebrates 20 years in business, and to honor the occasion, they’re relaunching the company’s brand, to include an all-new iteration of their iconic logo.
PDG+creative is a Bartlesville-based design agency, whose team of nine operates from a 4,000-square-foot commercial space downtown in the historic Pioneer building. Combined with a portfolio of almost 500 logos and countless advertising campaigns and websites, not to mention their impressive collection of industry awards, it’s hard to recall that 20 years ago this company was a one-man operation in an 88-square-foot room in his apartment.
“We’re definitely not resting on history,” said Matt Pendergraff, PDG+creative’s founder and Executive Creative Director, of his company’s 20 year anniversary. “We’re happy to celebrate this milestone, but we’re also using it as an opportunity to hit the reset button, and we’re going forward with a renewed sense of passion and energy.”
Early iterations of the PDG+creative client list were an exclusive “who’s who” of Bartlesville establishments and individuals, but the company has grown to serve national and international clientele as well, and has worked with such recognizable names as CBS Network, Microsoft UK, The New York Times, AOL, Facebook and Guy Kawasaki.
On the other side of these creative endeavors is the company’s generous support of various community organizations and non-profits. PDG+creative has donated more than $2.5 million in pro-bono hours and expenses to organizations like Big Brother Big Sister, YMCA, Relay for Life and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Plus, Pendergraff himself has served on numerous committees and service boards, including the local Chamber of Commerce board, and is Vice-President of InSight Ministries.
“20 years has afforded us the opportunity to do a lot of things on a lot of different scales,” said Pendergraff. “That’s given us both diverse experience and a diverse body of work, and that leaves us particularly well-equipped to serve a broader audience.”
PDG+creative’s branding relaunch includes an all-new logo, website, signage and office entryway, all being unveiled this month. To view their current portfolio or works in progress, or to learn more about their services offered, visit them online at www.PDGCreative.com.
