As October 2012 closes, we are happy to mention that Sitka Creations is 10 years old. Sitka Creations started in Rockland, Maine in October of 2002. Our first project was for a company called Uvitec Printing Ink, Inc. thanks to Bob Waddington, who we will never forget.
Over the years we have added services, learned how business and design go together, and expanded our collaborative team to include many contributors and freelancers. We have made mistakes, learned from them and continue to grow. We have worked with many different types of companies, individuals and other artists. The projects have been numerous, some large and some small, but all of them have been fun.
We appreciate the support of our team, our friends and our families. We also are extremely grateful to our CLIENTS without whom we would be unable to continue this business.
We look forward to another 10 Years as your design team.
