FROM THE QUEEN BEE

Carrie Hensel

President

Carrie has been leading creative teams since Y2K (remember that old term?). Believe it or not, she did not have even one cup of coffee until she was 36 years old. Now she is a morning coffee fiend.

By the way, did you know bees also like the buzz they get from plants that contain caffeine? A little dose improves their memory – check out the research.

When you work with Color Hive, you will drink as much coffee as you like whilst working directly with Carrie and her team of trusty designers, writers, illustrators, photographers, videographers, and innovative thinkers.

Carrie and the team will help you think through all the possibilities, generate ingenious ideas, and implement smart tactics to make the right people (customers, funders, shareholders, fans, friends, followers, media folks, employees, industry leaders…) fly straight to your door.

"Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else."

Visual Design

Here’s where ideas come to life - graphic design, illustration, video, animation. Our designers dream about color theory. They eat Alpha Bits cereal for breakfast, so they can ponder the typography.

Web Design

Print and web design are different beasts. After information architecture, user experience, and interface design, we’ll hand off specs, site diagrams, wireframes, and Photoshop comps to trusted developers.

Jive From The Hive

Why the Hive?

Many of my pals have asked why did I name my company “Color Hive”? I had plenty of other ideas, but why did this one make me resonate like a tuning fork?

Let there be COLOR!

If you asked “How did Color Hive come to be?” I might say something like this…

I had a middle life crisis.
