Why You Need a Strong Brand Identity.
What is a brand? A Brand is a uniform collection of unique imagery and creative identity components (i.e., logos, icons, color palettes, fonts) that visually communicate the core meaning and message of an organization, company or corporation to it’s marketplace. Within every strong brand exists the power to captivate, influence and ultimately, evoke deeper emotional experiences between the product and the consumer. Brand Development or Re-Branding is a strategic, collective effort of the Creative Disciples aiming to clearly define what a product or service stands for; Goals, Personality, Culture, Physique and Emotions you want people to experience when they engage with your brand.
After all, products and services simply don’t sell themselves…

Dru of DCM is Grade A creative talent. Both immensely efficient and graphically nimble. I’ve been working in this industry for over 15 years, and so rarely am I this impressed. Hyper-refined skills like his are hard to come by. If you are considering using this service, and want a reference – feel free to message me, as I would be happy to provide it.
LIL’ LETO CATERING // OWNER & CHEF
I used Dru Creative Media several items last year when my company was formulated. I always get compliments on what they designed for me. My business cards stand out from the rest! And the decals for my van receive high praise, also. Dru is a creative genius that always delivers exactly what you want!
FYRESITE MEDIA // OWNER
Dru and the rest of the Dru Creative Media team did a great job on our Fyresite business cards. We have been complimented on our business card designs hundreds of times. We love what they produced for us and we highly recommend them to businesses looking for high end graphic design services.

Great family run business. I worked with Dru to consult my branding, design and print that I thought had been well designed (by myself). Dru came up with several design revisions that made the cards look much more professional, while maintaining the brand integrity that I was aiming for. The results were excellent! I have since printed several more rounds of cards, and am now using their apparel production services as I need custom designs screen printed for both promotional and sales purposes. It’s the design skill, personal attention, and quick turnaround that makes these guys great!
R.O.I. PROPERTIES // REALTOR
Over the past 5 years, Dru Creative Media has designed & produced my logos, creative identities, brand elements, business cards, flyers, signage and SO MUCH MORE! I am so grateful to have such a talented, affordable, Brand & Print Company to go to whenever I need to boost my business exposure. Unmatched quality, customer service and prices…I will never go anywhere else for my branding! Highly Recommended!!
MAID TO ORDER // PROFESSIONAL CLEANERS
I had started cleaning a few condos in a town of Gulfport Florida a few years back and needed Branding that would stand out on a budget. Dru at DCM developed a truly one-of-a-kind Logo in less than a week and in just over a week, I received a box of beautifully designed business cards from Dru. Beyond my wildest dreams, my little cleaning business has turned into one of the most well known cleaning company in all of Town shores!! From a Brand & box of business cards from DCM to 2+ New clients every week. Thank you for making my business boom!
BUSOLA GROUP // WEALTH SHERPA
I wanted to do a friend a favor creating some flyers for his business to promote his services, but they had to be done in 3 days for a big event this weekend. We didn’t even have a Logo… I contacted Dru and not only did he get them done for me, but he also created him a new logo from scratch same day and got them printed and delivered with days to spare!! I Highly recommend them for any of your branding, design or print needs!! Their work is top quality!
KELLER WILLIAMS // REALTOR
Words are not enough to describe Dru of Dru Creative Media… incredible talent. It is mind blowing how in just a 30 minute Brand Consult he was able to understand exactly what I was looking for and not only promise an on-time delivery, but my design and brand creation surpassed all of my expectations. In addition, the quality of the print collateral is simply out of this world. Everyone who has seen my business cards has been extremely impressed. While working together, they showed great professionalism, Dru answered all my questions at all hours, he took all my suggestions and he came up with a brand that represents me. He has gained a very loyal client in me. I would refer anyone who wants to create a unique brand with great appeal. Thank you Dru!!!

I have worked as a Realtor for over 20 years. If anybody understands the power of a strong brand and marketing arsenal- I do. Personally, I was always a firm believer in my success being a product of hard work, customer service, persistence and business strategy. These days, the highly saturated competition Realtors face forces one to think outside of the box to maintain sales. Dru Creative Media does just that… A true Gem of a family-run Creative Media Agency that can do it all! Logos, Print, Signage, Apparel, Promotional, Trade show. Us Realtors need Creativity to stand out and we need it yesterday. Dru was able to develop a stylish, substance-driven logo and I received stationary with my brand printed on it in less than a business week. Realtors: Do yourself a favor & Brand with DCM!
HOFFMANFIT // PERSONAL TRAINER
I looked a long time before deciding to go with Dru Creative Media. My project was crucial and I didn’t want to revisit the website creation task again so I made sure Dru was the man for this job. He has amazing creative skills and doesn’t come up with the same style of designs used elsewhere like I’ve seen too many times before with graphic designers. Many so-called design gurus shouldn’t be in the business of design because to a certain degree there’s in-born talent involved.
Dru & The DCM Team has also gone beyond and above expectations when working on our project. There ended up being extra details that had to be done and instead of whining about it, they took care of business and did it. Too many people out there are difficult to work with in this industry so Dru and his company Dru Creative Media come with a high recommendation from me. I have several large projects to do going forward and they will be the ones responsible for doing them.

Dru Creative Media surpassed my expectations! Dru is incredibly talented. I originally had just my business card redesigned but after all of the positive feedback I received, they are now redesigning my business logo and marketing materials.
AUTO GLASS PERFECTION, LLC
We needed new business cards and a new design, Dru Creative Media stepped up and created great cards a great price. They worked with us every step of the way changing and also giving their personal recommendations on what would look the best! If you are in need of anything that can be printed or promotional for your business- look no further than Team DCM!
My experience with Dru Creative Media, Dru and Bill can only be described as the very best to say the least. I came to them for help in designing a logo for a small business. I shopped around and quickly feel in love with the first class design and treatment that was offered from the very start. I had a vision and together they made it a reality. If your looking to make a lasting and strong impression on any level, look no further than Dru Creative Media. Dru is very professional and thorough to the very end. If your looking for the best this is the man & Creative Company to see.
Dru Creative Media is amazing. The owner Dru and his father Bill are awesome and get the job done right the first time. I will refer them to everyone and anyone I run in to.
I have done work with Dru Creative Media in the past and highly recommend their service. They created an amazing logo for my table business with little to no direction from me. They were very professional and quick to respond to all questions and inquiries. I had a great experience with them and am sure you will too.
