"There we were, standing in Kesey Square (dedicated to Ken Kesey, author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Sometimes a Great Notion) in downtown Eugene, soaking in the eclectic nature of Eugene," said Julie Celeste, "when we looked down the street and saw the visually-stunning Hult Center for the Performing Arts with the nine successful resident companies based there. We knew this was the place we had to live." While it is true Celeste/Daniels handles clients from all over the USA and could be based anywhere due to the virtual nature of today's digital advertising world, we chose to move our offices from California to beautiful Eugene, Oregon because of the vibrant performing and visual arts community that is thriving here.

Our enthusiasm for the arts and our strong sense of community were key factors in being chosen to work with the City of Eugene on several projects. We've photographed the Hult Center for trade show displays, and produced a number of printed event and show programs. We've really enjoyed working with the City of Eugene's Community Events Department on the City's Summer in the City annual events. CDAD is the perfect fit for the fast pace of this busy team of event planners, and we are able to keep up with a demanding timeline and complicated workflow. We design and deliver posters, bilingual brochures, signs, location photography, banners, display ads, and digital content before every deadline, at costs that fit into the always-challenging municipal budgets.
