“Design is not just about making things look pretty or following the latest trends; it’s a strategy for an organization’s success. We started Impel Creative with this singular goal that still guides our business and our creative executions.”


It’s the little things.

Dotting the landscape with detail-oriented design is an Impel Creative specialty. Our Cleveland-based full service design firm works with national clients and local start-ups, and does so with an approach to design that assures the message will not get lost.

And the big things.

Budgets. Deadlines. Beautiful execution. With Impel, they’re not a lost art. We believe quality design can live alongside business realities. We offer high-level creative talent and big agency know-how coupled with personal attention and quick turnaround. Combined, these talents allow us to give clients the firepower of a large firm without all of the complexity.

Backed by an impelling team.

Stacie Ross | Principal

With two decades of design savvy under her belt, Stacie has designed, art directed and managed large-scale projects for national organizations as well as small businesses. In addition to working closely with clients to manage their big picture goals and day-to-day needs, she oversees all creative from start to finish, providing Impel clients with creative solutions, individual attention and detail-oriented project management. Outside of the office she’s dedicated to her two boys, yoga, spinning (and let’s not forget taste-testing craft beer).

Doug Crouch | Principal

Throughout Doug’s 20+ year career he’s mastered the art of balancing the visual and verbal with the practical needs of a client’s business. He has worked alongside product engineers to understand the science behind a marketing message, doctors to make a healthcare program or procedure more understandable, and marketing groups to launch new products. In addition to art direction and design, he works with the entire Impel team to assure that all creative solutions are also strategically sound. When he’s not designing, he’s fly-tying and fly-fishing somewhere in Ohio, Michigan or Pennsylvania and coaching his two sons in hockey.

Dana Anderson | Creative Partner

Dana is Impel’s resident realist (and straight-shooter), helping clients prioritize their messaging in ways that hone in on the one big thought that will connect with the target audience. Her designs are not only smart and succinct – they’re also beautiful: added benefits in a world that’s full of clutter. Dana’s not one to sit still. In fact, she recently ran her 10th half marathon (that’s five full marathons if you add them up, which she does), and is a certified fitness instructor who teaches strength-training and rowing classes.

Jennifer Crawford | Creative Partner

Jennifer’s diverse skill-set in graphic design, typography and old-school illustration make her Impel’s multitasker extraordinaire. Whether she’s creating a unique logo or picking the perfect color palette for a website, she has a gift for making each design look fresh and stand out from the rest. Jennifer works directly with Impel’s clients to learn more about their goals and ideas – then delivers the solutions needed to hit the mark both visually and strategically. She has been known, at times, to use her multitasking skills at home on her husband and three kids or when navigating her Pinterest boards on crafting and martini recipes.
