Building Pride in the Creative Community

Mission Statement

Connecting the creative community for support, education, collaboration, and mentoring.

  • We help promote the professional creative and for and in the Tacoma area. We work to enhance the value all creative disciplines provide for our local businesses and economy.
  • We advocate for a local sourcing of talent and other resources.
  • We offer professional development through cultivating learning opportunities from local subject-matter experts.
  • We host monthly events to connect with peers, learn how to run and grow a creative business effectively, and promote one another’s work.


The Creative Alliance builds communities by bringing artists and businesses together. We’re growing the design and business communities by providing top notch creative support to area businesses and holding education programs for all.

We strongly believe in creating together and sharing creative insight. We promote the Tacoma metro area as a center for creative production. The Alliance educates and supports all who wish to share their gifts and talents in the community.

As professional and independent designers (graphic, publication/page layout, web), marketers, programmers, and writers, we see the need and benefits of offering more services without expanding our own business services and still do the work in which we excel. We also see the need for more education for designers, businesses, and the community.
