  • Gosh, thank YOU. Not every team is organized enough – and well-staffed enough – to have backup people available when someone is out, for example.

    I appreciate everyone there – to a person! – being such a great model of professionalism, lightning-like quickness, and extreme helpfulness.

    You guys are beyond great to work with, and we can’t thank you enough.

  • Work produced by the team at Michigan Creative — from design to video — is outstanding (top notch). The staff is creative and professional and patient with the approval process that can often be challenging. Managers help guide the workflow in a way that is helpful but not an impediment to the process. Finally, being able to charge through to an account number streamlines the process of contracting for creative services, making it easier from concept to completion.

  • I just finished the articles on the Heritage website, and I want to say congratulations and many kudos to all of you. The website is spectacular and the articles are very engaging. A great selection of initial pieces—really a fine sampling of University history in several dimensions. And I really appreciate that you haven’t whitewashed anything. Hard to say which are my favorites, but they’re all great. I look forward to what’s coming next. Many thanks for developing a great resource.

  • So many hard-working teams of educators do not receive public recognition for their work, so we are truly fortunate that Caring with Compassion has been selected as a 2014 recipient of the U-M Provost’s Teaching Innovation Prize. My sincere congratulations and gratitude go to each of you as well as to the other contributing Michigan Creative specialists. Feedback from attendees here at the Association of Program Directors in Internal Medicine meeting has been highly positive.

  • Just a quick note to say thanks to you and your team for all the logo production you’ve been doing for us at SPH. People love the customized logos, especially when they learn how flexible they are and how many ways they can be used. We have student groups asking to use them and I have faculty making presentations, staff wanting templates, and envelopes and shirts and all sorts of other uses.

  • Last night UM-Dearborn celebrated the public announcement of our $50 million Victors for UM-Dearborn campaign. Hundreds of people were on campus for a VIP dinner, the public announcement and many other related alumni/campaign events. The event was a great success. Much of this success is attributed to Michigan Creative. Your team never said no, never compromised Michigan quality or excellence and really helped my team move these projects forward in ways we never could have imagined. We cannot thank you enough for your team’s hard and great work!

    We have received so many positive comments about Legacy, our case statement, the video, and I am sure the website in the days to come (it went live late yesterday). Thanks again for everything – you all really made UM-Dearborn (and my team) look good last night!
