Know Your Network | Rooted Creative
Chamber Member, Rooted Creative Agency has been a Chamber Member since 2019. So Why choose Rooted Creative when creative agencies are a nickel a dozen? Rooted is different. They stand for something. They’d rather love and serve people than make a dollar. They’d rather leave an impact than gain a client. They’d rather build our community than build a business. That’s why they’re Rooted.
The past year has been interesting, to say the least. The pandemic really hit small businesses hard. As a Creative Agency, Rooted felt a responsibility to help their clients continue to survive and thrive during tough times. As humans, though, they felt a calling to bring the city together. Given many of the staff at Rooted Creative had a background in athletics, they noticed gyms and fitness studios in Cincinnati were especially hurting during COVID. Most had to close their doors for months as indoor gatherings were shut down. Even more concerning to us was the loss of comradery and community. Enter: Race Street Athletics – a Rooted Creative initiative to promote a healthy lifestyle while starting to rebuild a sense of community. With masks and social distancing in place, they created an outdoor fitness activation for Cincinnati. Over the course of a dozen plus Saturdays and the First Race Street Open, they created a traveling fitness community that brought hundreds together across the city while people were yearning for togetherness. As a company, they firmly believe in loving and serving people here in Cincinnati over making a dollar anywhere else. Just in the past year, they’ve hosted events to raise money and awareness for charitable causes and hosted a free community portrait day called #KeepCincyHired that provided free professional headshots to professionals in Cincinnati looking for a leg up during the economic downturn due to COVID19.
Rooted has worked with the Cincinnati Chamber on some amazing projects highlighting some of Cincinnati’s brightest in the business community. For the past two years, they’ve partnered with the Chamber to lift up the stories and successes of black leadership in Cincinnati as part of the #MakingBlackHistory creative series. Previously, they’ve worked with our Minority Business Accelerator as well as capturing visuals for BLINK Cincinnati.
