Doodle Dog Creative is a creative agency headquartered in Dallas and Austin, Texas, specializing in branding solutions, website design and development and search engine optimization. We create smile worthy concepts that capture personality and inspire brands.
We had such a great time working with the very talented midwest photographer and videographer, Maura of Creative Films.
Maura had an existing logo and brand but was looking for a site that would compliment it nicely and bring a fresh, clean and modern look to her online presence. Here’s a look at her new site!
Want to get to know Maura bit more? We asked her a few questions so you could do just that!How long have you been in business? 11 years
What do you do? I am a filmmaker and photographer and specialize in fine art wedding films and promotional videos for small and medium sized businesses. I also have a photography business and photograph babies, children and families.
Why did you start your business? I have always made art and done photography. Before I started this business I was an art teacher. I learned video through one of my students who was doing an independent study and wanted to play around with multi-media video projects. We learned Final Cut Pro together and I fell in love with video and editing.
What is unique about your business? I think I can tell the story of a new family or business in a way that is authentic and heartfelt. The wedding day is full of so many intimate moments between two families coming together and so much can be told both with AUDIO and a moving image that creates a very strong story. There is something so special about hearing your Dad’s voice from his toast while you are dancing with him on your wedding day, or getting to relive your vows so intensely. I approach corporate work in a similar way. I love getting to know a client and telling THEIR story in a way that is unique to them.
What is the process like to work with you? Most clients start with an email banter or a chat on the phone. I like meeting my wedding clients at my studio to share work and learn more about their wedding day. I typically meet corporate clients at their place of business or the location where we will do the filming to get an idea of what we will be working with at the actual shoot. Photography clients are almost always on location at their home or park. I find that young ones are so much more comfortable on their own turf. The timeline with each project is different, but we are always in contact with the client letting them know where they stand in the process and when the project will be completed.
Why did you decide to work with Doodle Dog? Several of my friends have used Doodle Dog and were very happy!
What’s your favorite part of your new look? I like that we were able to combine what used to be three websites into one and that is has a clean, uncluttered look!
About You: Tell us about your family. I have a daughter and son and a very wonderful husband.
Do you have any pets? What are their names? Two dogs, Ned and Tes, both named after awesome little towns in Colorado.
Where do you like to shop? I’m not a big shopper – I would rather spend my time with my family, but I can lose control pretty quick on the Title9 website!
Describe yourself and your style. I am a pretty natural girl. You get what you see, and if you ask me I will tell you what I think!
Where do you find inspiration? I am part of a group of women filmmakers from all over the US and we meet yearly for a retreat called POSH Retreat. These women are my inspiration and I look forward to seeing them every year and hopefully several times in between each retreat!
A Day in the life of you consist of: My day in the life isn’t too interesting… I get up at 5:30, head to my crossfit bootcamp and home in time to get the kids ready for school. Spend all day editing, meeting with clients, or working with other vendors, and back to pick up the kids after school. My husband and I try to go to lunch together several times a week as it is pretty great to have a conversation just with him!
