And the fish? They're also part of our office family. In 2006 we installed a footbridge with a 500 gallon pond below our front entrance, and is the first feature you walk across when you enter our offices. Our original four fish are now eleven years old, 10 inches long and thriving, and have had a couple of hatches of offspring along the way. A little unexpected, but that's what to expect from us.

consider it. done.

Graphic Design

Need a smarter way to advertise? Aha! Creative can get your company noticed. Our team of graphic designers work with you to create  the designs that give your company a polished visual presence and reflect your vision.

Web Design

Aha! Creative designs and develops beautiful, functional websites for many of the businesses that you know and use everyday. Using current design, content, and code development, we work to give your website the look and tools to compete - locally and globally.


Do you know how important it is to have a cohesive brand image? Do you have several different color schemes and logos at work right now? Aha! Creative can help you consolidate these different directions into one solid brand image.


Video Production

Engaging your customer or prospect, no matter your industry, is key for any business and video is a key element. Once limited to television and giant budgets, the birth of YouTube, Vimeo, and social media gives your video message more eyes than ever before. Aha! Creative can write and produce your message effectively and get it in front of an audience...wherever they are watching.

Direct Mail

It can be difficult to reach a large number of people with your marketing message in an affordable manner. With the explosive growth of e-mail marketing, your message may be lost in a sea of email (or worse, spam). Good old fashioned snail mail may be the effective alternative to cut through the message clutter. Aha! Creative can help you design a direct mail campaign from the ground up, including graphic design, audience targeting, and fulfillment.

Marketing Strategy

Positioning your company in the right market is a critical aspect of your company’s success. At Aha!, we determine where you need to be, and then focus on the types of advertising to take your company to the next level. Let us get to know your business and we can build a strategy unique to your business - using traditional or digital marketing - or even a mixture of the two.


Featured Work

We represent a world of clients; local, regional, and national - from manufacturing, financial services, health care, interior design, fashion, retail, hotel, hospitality and food service, to economic development agencies, government offices, and civic groups.

Client Testimonials

The City of Loretto has been associated with Aha! Creative for over eight years. They created two brochures and the City of Loretto website. The quality of work performed and service is outstanding. When we are in need of an update or change to our website we receive quality work in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Aha! Creative to any organization to create brochures, website and any other design needs. I think any government, organization or business would be well pleased with the quality of work and service from Aha! Creative.
Keith Smith, City Manager - Loretto, Tennessee
We have had the privilege to work with Aha! Creative for the past nine years. Throughout our time together Aha! has been involved in every part of our marketing and advertising efforts. Ray and his staff have consistently suggested advertising formats and designed campaign avenues to position Southern Craft as a market leader and expand our clientele. I couldn't be more pleased with the work I've received from Aha! Creative, and I look forward to many more years of partnership.
Rodney Robinson - Southern Craft Manufacturing
Throughout the entire process, the staff at Aha! was more than helpful with any questions we had and was very responsive to any ideas that we proposed. When the project was complete, Aha! Creative was able to provide the citizens of our county with a new website that allowed them to find the information they need in a timely manner and to conduct much of their county business online all the while providing people outside of Lawrence County with a professional look at what our county has to offer. I would highly recommend Aha! to any government entity or business looking to advance whatever cause they may have because they sure helped us.
Chris D. Jackson, County Commissioner - Lawrence County, TN
Aha! Creative produced our new web site and structured our array of programs in such a way that visitors can easily locate information about workshops, classes, exhibitions, concerts, plays, educational outreach as well as information about the Association’s history, its new Foundation for Endowment, its permanent collection of art and its historic Ritz Theatre. Owner Ray Methvin grasped the scope of the work from the beginning and understood what we were trying to achieve. He spent hours meeting with our staff, organizing materials, and making recommendations that makes the site easy to navigate.

Mary Settle Cooney, Executive Director - Tennessee Valley Art Association
The Aha! Creative staff are all extremely helpful and easy to work with. We told them our vision for our website and they brought it to life. They have been helping us for over a year with different projects and we are never disappointed. We appreciate that Aha! Creative can complete our projects in-house, without outsourcing the work to third party vendors. Aha! has performed branding and logo design, web design and print design for us and we have been very happy with the results.
Colleen Trousdale - Wise Total Maintenance Center
If we had any questions or needed any support, Aha! and its entire staff of designers and web developers was just a phone call away. Aha! just finished one website for us and we did not hesitate to have them start work on our next project.
Rob Hodge, Sales/Customer Service - Alabama Electric Motor Services, LLC
We are a real estate company in a small town. Most of our clients are now viewing our properties online, here locally and out of state. My firm wanted a site that was simple to get to and easy to search - even for the most "internet-challenged," me included. Aha! completed the task. Our new site allows the client the ability to view all the properties that are available and make some decisions in their homes. The Aha! Creative team designed and built a website that performs just as I had hoped. The entire staff was great to respond to our requests and changes and made them immediately.
Steve Hill, Owner/Broker - ReMax Pros
Working with Aha Creative is a wonderful experience. During the creative process, Aha is most proficient and professional; always listening closely and responding with great understanding and success.  It is rare to find a professional organization who fully “gets it,” delivering high-quality products when you need them.  Our campaign consists of several print, video, and electronic pieces. Not only is each individual piece beautiful on its own, they work together providing a consistent message with wonderful visuals. Thanks for your good work Aha!
Madge Lindsay, Center Director - Strawberry Plains Audubon Center
Our new catalog, designed by Aha! Creative, has brought our company up to date with our clients' needs and expectations. The result has been our best year ever in sales. Thanks Aha!
John Tyner - Madison County Caskets

Ray Methvin and the staff at Aha! Creative worked with us to design new promotional and advertising materials which we felt effectively conveyed our message. The designs the agency created for us were creative and eye-catching.  With very little knowledge of marketing concepts on our part, Ray was patient and professional as he guided us through the process.
