Meet the Intern

Posted Jan 25, 2016 & filed under Confab, News

We’ve never had an intern before. Not that we have anything against them — honestly, it just never really occurred to us to hire one! Not until, that is, Glenna Rose Hanson called our office and said, “How about I be your guinea pig intern? It will be great!“ How could we pass up an offer like that?

College just got real.

At Carew Co., we had been anxiously awaiting the chance to push this campaign further and knew this was our opportunity. We've had an amazing partnership with the marketing team for many years and enjoy any opportunity to "mind meld" with our friends at CWI. As an extension of the marketing team, we bring ideas to the table, consult on the campaign strategy, and get the tactics accomplished.

Thank you to our clients and our community.

Posted Dec 19, 2011 & filed under Boise, Community, Confab, News

Every year since we opened our doors for business, we've made a donation on behalf of our clients and partners to a local non-profit organization. Many agencies invest in printing some sort of over-designed holiday card with interesting printing techniques, sending oversized tins of popcorn in three bland flavors, or hosting some sort of post-work cocktail hour. We prefer to thank our clients with a tradition we've been fortunate enough to accomplish every year since we opened our doors for business — a $1,000 cash donation to a local non-profit organization. We received great response and have even watched some of our clients adopt a similar tradition with their organizations. We are proud to live and work in this community, and wish to celebrate the holidays with a helpful hand.

Go Forth and Prosper.

Posted Sep 27, 2010 & filed under Boise, News

Selfishly, we're sad to see Leigh Ann move on. On the other hand, we're very excited for her as she takes the next step in her career. Leigh Ann helped us make sense of how we work as a team and manage our workflow. She helped to streamline our process and nail down some important operational items during her tenure at Carew Co. She also made us smile and laugh. Often.

Congratulations, Mr. Hanson

Posted Jun 8, 2010 & filed under Boise, Events, News

When I first met Nate, he was about to graduate and start a job search. I've always followed the design program at NNU and typically review the portfolios of the graduating class every year. During an annual portfolio review, I ran out of time and didn't get to meet everyone. I made time to get a quick glance at each portfolio I missed. I was immediately drawn in by Nate's work and through a quick conversation, discovered a mature, talented, and motivated young man. In June of 2008, I took the leap and hired him on as an intern. By Fall, Nate had proven his value and was brought on as Carew Co's first "official" hire.

Moving and Shaking

Posted Sep 29, 2008 & filed under Boise, Events, News

To keep up with future growth plans, we're moving into a new office on Friday, October 3rd. The new space is in the same building (The Eagles Building, 6th & Idaho), but on the lower level. The new Carew Co. mothership is about three times the size, offering lots of room to spread out and in-office meeting space. We're also switching to a real phone system, so we may have "spotty" reception during the day on Friday. We'll be sure to get back to you as soon as we can on Monday at the open of business.
