Hunt Creative Inc. (HCI)

Hunt Creative Inc. was established in 1986 to compete against high-priced advertising and marketing agencies. Our objective was to provide "professional creative and production services" without the marble lobby prices. We still work the same way today. We work with clents direct and also work "white label" for other marketing and advertising agencies.

Company Services:

We are constantly upgrading our skills and equipment to meet client needs as they evolve. This includes graphic design for print, package design, web development, photography and video productions.

Business References:

We began our business relationship several years ago. We were looking for a pool of creative designers to allow us an opportunity to bring a value proposition to some of our clients. We began with a couple of small projects as tests and today Jay is our main creative designer and here are some reasons why we enjoy working with him:

  1. Consummate professional
  2. Reliable, does exactly what he says
  3. Brings valuable marketing intelligence to each project
  4. In creative bar none
  5. His ability to craft with words is ridiculous, I believe the younger kids Gen X and Y call is“sic"
  6. He will create, design, write, direct, and has a wonderful eye to capturing the heart and essence and will use the creative brief tool as his guideline and drive to it constantly
  7. He brings far more than what you ask for, and by this I mean, other areas or channels to augment what you are doing, and truly does know how to capitalize for you Target who have a goal, objective, audience, market, mandate and purpose
  8. He shares freely of this knowledge in helping one to grow, and is a very giving human being in this nature, and as always there are people and corporations who have taken advantage of his generousity and still he has an attitude and zest for life that I learn and grow from each time I have the pleasure of working or engaging with Jay and his team
  9. He is marketing department all rolled into one and a true power to be reckoned with and has won industry awards to prove it.

He has worked on many projects of various sizes and depth and works seamlessly and tiredlesssly with us to achieve our goal. I would, we would not hesitate to recommend Jay to augment or be the creative brilliance of any strategy, inititative or marketing endeavour. We continue to work with Jay and he remains our number one go to guy. Jay is definitely someone you want on your team and part of your life. He makes you a better person for knowing him.

Jay has worked for this Company over the past 8 years, providing a range of Creative Services and Executions. I spent 20 years in Marketing Management and have a lot of experience working with creative staff in Advertising and Promotion functions - including working directly with David Ogilvy of Ogilvy Mather.
Jay understands the role of Creative Strategy and has always been thorough in determining what benefit and for what audience we are addressing whatever we have asked him to develop. He likes to know the limits and disciplines before he proceeds, which I consider a mark of professionalism.
The execution alternatives he has presented to me have always been developed rationally from my briefing, and I have known him to test options that can influence the positioning of the product or program in important ways. He is articulate in specifying such differences, and it enables us to choose our positioning in ways that, to date, have worked exceedingly well.
He has developed very successful brochures and websites for our business, as well as filming one of our Workshops and editing an excellent DVD. He has the Marketing know-how to take, for example, one execution and apply it to another. He has great "commercial" instincts for the things that help make business happen for us.
If I can add specifics for the benefit of other potential users of Jay's services, I should be happy to do so.

Jay Hunt has been a valuable asset to our agency since we began working together.
Jay is very talented in all aspects of design work, an expert with internet applications, and is extremely savvy with most computer platforms in general. The one trait that we truly admire Jay for is his willingness to get the job done when it needs to get done. Late nights, weekends, Jay was always available if something came up. That is a rare quality that is becoming more and more difficult to find in today’s advertising service industry.
To put it concisely, Jay does solid work, Can turn over a job expediently if need be, is fair priced, contributes tangible ideas, and above all has a great personality that keeps the gang smiling when we’re getting the job done I would highly recommend him. Any questions - let me know.
