…and going through some big changes. We are truly excited to announce the launch of our new name, Truly Creative.

“When I launched my business as an independent designer, my maiden name – Sloat – embodied who I was at that time,” said Carrie Dufour, Truly Creative’s Founder and Creative Director. “Since then, we’ve proudly grown into a full-service branding agency and, for years, have been searching for a new name that better reflects our company culture and our diverse and talented team.


We explored hundreds of possibilities and the right name finally hit us after hearing our clients express the same happy sentiments: we truly care; we’re truly strategic; we’re truly thoughtful. The warmth, sincerity, and honesty embodied by the word “truly” deeply resonated with us, as these have been underlying elements in our work and at the core of our client relationships.”

And so, Truly Creative was born!

On that note, we can’t think of a better moment to express how truly grateful we are for the creative work our clients allow us to do every day. Their trust and support over the last sixteen years has inspired us and made our progress possible. We feel fortunate to get to do what we love to do and are excited for what lies ahead.

Along with the name change, we’ve upgraded our office space to accommodate Truly Creative’s growing team. Our bright, open suite is located just across the road from Shollenberger, a 165 acre wetland park in Petaluma, California. Designer Natalie DeGolia and web developer Chris Grim recently joined Dufour and long-time employees, senior designer Andy Yanchunis and designer Emma Williams.


Our new space is bigger, brighter, and just a few short miles from our previous location. Get an inside view here, or stop by sometime!

Our New Address:

3835 Cypress Drive, Suite 207
Petaluma, CA 94952

We are excited to welcome Natalie as the newest edition to the Truly Creative team. A recent graduate of California Polytechnic State University, Natalie is passionate about package design and environmental design. When she’s not at work she enjoys listening to true crime podcasts and pursuing her lifelong love of dance.

Meet the rest of our team!
