We’re so glad you stopped by. May we introduce ourselves?
Deep Root Creative is a family-run business headed up by Tony & Heather Blish, who together have over ten years of experience working in the computer, graphic design, and photography industries.
Before starting their own business, Heather supported her design addiction by freelancing for partner companies Maelstrom Solutions and sister company Ideal Campaign; Envano Inc., and Imagine That Creative. From her kitchen counter headquarters in a quiet Wisconsin town on the shores of Lake Michigan, she has had the opportunity to design logos, websites, and print graphics for small businesses, Fortune 500’s, and political candidates all over the country. Through her work on political websites in partnership with Ideal Campaign, one of her projects received a positive mention in both The New York Times and the Queens Chronicle.
Recently her design for the Artfully Designed Creations website caught the attention of the WordPress community , and has been featured in a number of design showcases (75+ Stunning Examples of Elegant Themes’ Divi WordPress Theme in Action, 36+ New Divi WordPress Theme Examples Showcase, 100+ Amazing Examples of Divi WordPress Theme in Live, 50 Beautiful Websites Using Elegant DIVI WordPress Theme 2016).
Tony drives a truck to feed his family, but his real passions are computer programming and fine art photography with a focus on landscapes and still life. He has a background in computer technology, with experience in analysis and repair of computer systems, computer retail, customer service, and tech support.
Tony and Heather have been married for nearly 20 years. Together with their 5 kids they live in a crazy, reclaimed hilltop convent that narrowly escaped getting mowed down into a parking lot before they bought it and converted it into a home. Their home-based studio overlooks Lake Michigan and the charming lighthouse of Kewaunee, Wisconsin. Between working full time, running a business, and homeschooling their 4 oldest, life keeps them hopping.
WHAT’S WITH THE NAME?
Deep Root Creative
is inspired by Jeremiah 17:8:
“They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
That verse has served as the inspiration not only for our name, but for our entire philosophy: we strive to build a marketing solution for our partners that is so well-grounded, it will continue to produce fruit even when times are tough. That’s why we don’t just build solutions; we build partnerships based on trusting relationships. We ask detailed questions and really get to know you. Then we work with you to solve your problems, and to meet your goals.
