Border Senses

As a non-profit organization that promotes new art and literature, and offers new artistic opportunities to underserved communities, we find a perfect fit working with Creative Gong.

Their designs show the understanding and connection to contemporary art that reflect our own aesthetics.  Moreover, Creative Gong is a strong supporter of the local community; thus, when we worked together on a community project, we were on the same page to bring awareness and respect through art to communities that are often ignored. Their work helps us represent our own in an ideal way.

Phi Delta Theta Taxas Tau

Here at the Texas Tau Chapter of Phi Delta Theta we had a continuous problem with our philanthropy's logo. We always had a logo that would do the job, but it wasn't good enough for the high quality event we were trying to make.

That is when we came to Creative Gong for help get us to where we wanted to be. Within a week after simply telling her the concept we wanted in our logo Sandra had the design ready.

I can honestly say the design she came up with captivates peoples eyes to a level that none of our other logos even comes near. Thank you Sandra and Creative Gong for helping us reach our goal.

Abundant Life Ministries of Paseo del Norte, Inc.

Prior to the launch of our new ministry and accompanying website, we wanted to have an identifying logo that would visually communicate who we are.

We inquired of our business friends about who would be the most sensitive to our needs, yet creative. We were very impressed with the quality of Sandra Salas and Creative Gong! The logo you created for us was simple elegance and we are proud to display our new logo in and on all of our correspondence.

Thank you, Sandra, for what you did for us. May God continue to richly bless you, and your business.
Warmly,

Phi Delta Theta International Fraternity (UTEP) 

I can’t say enough good things about Sandra Salas and Creative Gong! 

She is a design genius with an infectious positive attitude and a generous spirit with her talents.

When the Phi Delta Theta Chapter at UTEP was looking to upgrade their logo for their annual Iron Turkey 5K Race (to raise funds for the area ALS Society and patients), Sandra turned on her creative process and gave us a bold and modern new design that helped bring attention to our cause. Many people loved the design so much, we were able to sell extra race t-shirts because they looked so good.

I would recommend Creative Gong to anyone looking for creative design work done by someone who really cares and who gives back to her community so generously. Thank you so much!

Aztec Contractors, Inc.

Sandra Salas of Creative Gong LLC is the “breath of fresh air” that Aztec Contractors, Inc. needed to redesign our marketing materials. We are so pleased with the level of creative and professional service that Aztec Contractors, Inc. highly recommends Ms. Salas and Creative Gong LLC to any business looking for an updated design to represent their company.

Starting with our existing logo, Ms. Salas was able to integrate that logo into a fresh and modern design that carries seamlessly through all of our marketing material. Sandra was able to develop variations of the new design to make each piece of marketing material look individual and special while remaining true to the Aztec Contractors, Inc. branding and primary design.

Ms. Salas created an outstanding product for Aztec Contractors, Inc., but along the way, she also opened our eyes to the design process and the message that our design conveys to our customers. Sandra’s service was always timely and very affordable. Aztec Contractors, Inc. has tremendous respect and confidence in Ms. Salas and we look forward to a long and continued relationship.

Marketing Solutions and More

Working with Sandra from Creative Gong over the last two years has been a great experience for me personally and professionally. 

Professionally, I have found Sandra to be honest in her communications with myself and clients. She knows exactly what it takes to help companies brand themselves in all aspects of their marketing. One way Sandra helps her clients most is by truly listening to their background story, their goals and their dreams.  Not only does this help her create stunning designs for the business, it also gives her lots of material to help clients brainstorm on new ways to grow their business. 

Working with Creative Gong has been fun and educational. Sandra is not afraid to say what she thinks and works diligently to be a champion for her clients. Her experience and expertise goes a long way in helping business owners create a lasting impression on the market place for years to come.

Hire Times Career & Coaching Group

When I first began working with Creative Gong, I had a logo and a few marketing items that were not producing very much visibility for my business.  Sandra was able to bring life to my marketing materials and make my good logo GREAT!  Sandra has a way of listening to a business owner in order to find out what their heart is saying about the company;  she then captures that sentiment in print or digital images.  I am very pleased with the work that Sandra, of Creative Gong has done for my business thus far and I anticipate a long business relationship.

I am extending my appreciation to Creative Gong for the wonderful job they did on my business logo. I had requested something that not only expressed my sentiments and the concept behind the logo name but also to express concern toward my future patients. The work done by Creative Gong is exquisite in the sense that it provided talent, motivation, support, and artistic life.
Thank you Creative Gong

Creative Gong is simply the best. There may be other graphic artists in this city, but none like Sandra. She delivers quality creative design and does so in a timely manner.  But that is not all. She offers helpful suggestions, and recommendations. And she shares with her clients the opportunity to connect with other members of the business community! She is a rare jewel. I feel so fortunate to have found her to help establish my business. If you choose to do business with her, you will certainly agree: Creative Gong is simply the best.

SRO Events of El Paso, L.L.C. (SRO Events)

I have known and dealt with Creative Gong professionally for 4 years and have been very satisfied with their service.  We commissioned them to do the logo for JazzElPaso Connection and they did an excellent job.  The logo won an Addy from the American Advertising Federation.  She designed extremely artistic posters and flyers for JazzEl Paso, one of which was also ordered by Dominic’s Italian Restaurant to proudly hang in their restaurant.

I’ve since commissioned Creative Gong to do a logo for my new endeavor, SRO Events of El Paso, L.L.C., and they again delivered an outstanding product that I’m very proud of to have represent my company.

Their professionalism is outstanding and I hope to enjoy working with them for many years to come. Creative Gong’s work would benefit any organization.

The Peak of Balance & Young El Paso Singers

Creative Gong not only created a design for my company, but with their tremendous commitment to the community, they developed a logo and look for the Young El Paso Singers, a community based youth choir which displayed their vocal talents loudly upon seeing the logo for the first time.  Cheers and yelps abounded!  They tapped into the heart of children and teens, and with overwhelming approval and excitement, launched Y.E.S. as a Founding Sponsor and its image creator.

In addition, Creative Gong continually follows up with me to advise on the best uses, and the “how-to” of branding with the most advantageous placement of logos.  They are a compassionate and supportive business colleague interested in my company’s growth through their counsel and expert business development insights, along with a being a dedicated supporter of her community at large.  Their genius and integrity are the cornerstone to Creative Gong.  I am proud to say Sandra Salas of Creative Gong is creating my company’s image to the public and sponsors Young El Paso Singers!

There is a lot of competition out there today.  Whether it’s in business or in everyday life, there are hundreds of people vying for the same things you are.  In my field it is difficult to set yourself apart from the average salesperson, hence the reason for talking with Sandra at Creative Gong. I asked Creative  Gong to create something for me that was unique and would set me apart.  Sure enough, that is what she accomplished. I received numerous calls thanking me for the card and got a lot of compliments for its creativity.  In deciding to use Sandra and her creative genius, I have set myself apart from the competition and have gained a good amount of new business.  I would highly recommend Creative Gong.
