Compelled Worship

Capturing Compelled

Compelled- a thriving Christian praise and worship band. They came to us wanting to increase their online presence and to strengthen their marketing campaign. To help them achieve this goal we used our expertise in web design to create a site that reflects their heart and mission.

One of the first steps we took was to identify how they needed the site to function. As most artist's, Compelled wanted to keep fans informed, post schedules, receive bookings, and share samples of their music; and they wanted it all on a simple and exciting landscape. We're pleased to say we delivered.

Compelled's new site features a blog inspired news section, an online audio and video album, and the ability for visitor's to communicate quickly with the band. In the process of creating the site we also met their marketing needs by planning and capturing images at their photo shoot. Those images can also be found throughout the site.

We're looking forward to working with more artists to showcase their work and talents. This is just the beginning of a new and exciting chapter in Creativo Inc.'s mission to help our clients reach their markets. "Calling all artists; its time to showcase your work!"

Working with artists has reminded us of a simple life lesson that Henry Ford shared with us; " Coming together is the beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success."

Last week we accompanied Compelled to the studio. As they recorded All My Life, one of three tracks to be released on their EP, we got a first hand view of the success that comes from hard work and support.

The experience got us thinking. Just as the singers worked together to create precise harmony and stirring melodies, the success of our projects is connected to honest collaboration. Meeting the needs of our clients begins with preparation and unity in goals and effort.

Being in the studio with Compelled helped further our commitment to helping artists share their creativity with the world. Most businesses offer services and goods. Artists offer something we all need every now and again. They offer us inspiration.

When we accepted the task of photographing an eleven member band, we knew we were in for an interesting night. With inspiration drawn from music and performance we collaborated with True Reflections to capture "live" shots of a local band, Compelled.

The shoot was planned by a team of representatives from Creativo Inc. and True Reflections to meet the group's online and marketing need. Jose served as the primary photographer and creative director, Christina took charge of wardrobe and posing, and Delmon served as a photographer and the lighting specialist.

To create a live performance feel, a studio was rented, various lights were mounted, instruments and props were set up, and multiple backdrops were hung. The goal was to capture the excitement of a concert and to mimic the changes in mood that music often inspires.

The shoot lasted six hours and produced a collection of inspiring pictures.
