Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Seattle, and....GRAND RAPIDS?!
Yes. Grand Rapids is one of seven office locations for Creative Circle, billed as an advertising and creative staffing agency. That means they connect creative talent to clients who need all manner of creative help, from animation to writing. Area creatives can register to get freelance gigs and potentially full-time positions.
This is not only a good service for the West Michigan creative community; it's validation that West Michigan has an attractive creative climate.
