And so it goes... starting a business is a daring leap of faith, an exciting adventure and as limitless as the ocean stretching out before us! There are times when the journey seems uncertain and other times when the path is as clear as the smile on my face. Our journey started in 2003 with founder, Lisa Renshaw.... with a dream and a desire to help others achieve their dreams; to partner with them on their journey of success.
In 2003, Lisa Renshaw, began working part time as a freelance designer for a few companies. As demand grew and the importance of family came into focus, we opened our doors full-time in 2004. We consider our official birthday to be April 1, 2004 – a big celebration day for us! The idea was to create a company that would truly serve its clients with honesty and integrity while providing all the advertising services a business needs under one roof. Over the years we have built our reputation as a web design / development company simply because that was the #1 tool people needed. However we are a full-service advertising agency and aim to provide all of the tools for marketing your business.
Natalie Fisher joined the team in 2009 after graduating with her advertising degree from the University of Florida and has become an integral part of the company - she's the first one you'll talk to when you need a consult! Lisa and Natalie are now partners running the company together. Starting in 2012, Natalie opened up our Altamonte Springs / Winter Park / Orlando branch office in an effort to expand into other parts of Florida. Nita Chester is our newest member as of July 2014. She comes with over 28 years of experience in the advertising industry. Together the 3 of us are a solid team, who support one another, discuss most of the major decisions collectively...and we do have a lot of fun too! Learn more about our team.
Blu Dove Designs is a member of the Builders Association of North Central Florida, Advertising Federation of Gainesville, Newberry Jonesville Chamber of Commerce and the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce. In addition, we are active in our community and believe that an important aspect of our success is giving back to the area we call home... Alachua County. We have always done various work to give back since our inception. Starting in 2011, we decided that every year, we would select a non-profit who 1) could truly benefit from our solutions, 2) that exhibited great need and 3) matched up with an area of our lives that we care deeply about. That program / organization then becomes our adopted project for that year. To date we've built websites for the Child Advocacy Center, Two Tails Ranch: All About Elephants, Phoenix Animal Rescue and Taste of Gainesville.
