A bit about who we are.



ColorWord Creative is a communications firm based in Elgin, IL that specializes in developing dynamic messaging for small businesses and non-profits. Whether it's writing text for a website, designing a logo or  t-shirts for an event, or drafting a marketing/fundraising plan, we want to hear your vision so we can help share it with the world.  


We agree with Daniel Taylor when he says that, "The greatest expression of our human experience is story." Because of that, we're on a mission to tell stories--your stories--that inspire, connect, and resonate with other humans in powerful and unique ways. It's as simple as that: you want to bring some good into this world, and we want to help. 


You're the one who knows your story best, so our approach is to listen first, ask good questions, and get to know you and the heartbeat of your mission. Then we work with you to make a plan, and we develop words, images, events, and/or a variety of other mediums to make it happen. Our goal is to present your business, mission, vision in a fresh and memorable way. 


Amanda J. Garcia is the founder and principal executive of ColorWord Creative. During her years working as a communicator in the non-profit world she learned that many great organizations have inspiring visions, yet struggle to effectively spread the word. She decided to become a professional storyteller through both color and word, and when her freelancing business grew too big for one person, she launched ColorWord Creative in May 2016. Now Amanda coordinates a team of talented communicators who collaborate to tell stories together.
