Techsylvania Head of Design Horea Gruita and his quickly growing startup CREATIX are a force to be reckoned with. Techsylvania 2015 will be crawling with innovative minds like this.
Horea is a graphic and web development specialist with tremendous experience in marketing, both on and offline. During the last 10 years, Horea has been working with some of some of the biggest multinational companies operating in Romania, such as Vodafone and Sony Ericsson.
His passionate dedication to technology and innovation set him on the entrepreneurial path as a freelance web designer, creating hundreds of websites, logos and marketing materials for companies around the world, including Techsylvania 2015.
In addition to being Head of Design for Techsylvania, last year, he decided to use his knowledge and experience to start his own company – CREATIX MEDIA, a graphic and web agency operating in 3 main business areas: Graphic design, Web development and Online marketing. Techsylvania 2015 is just one of the many, well known brands he’s assisted in moving forward in a world of continuous changes that impact marketing strategies.
His company’s Silver Partnership and commitment to making this year’s event even better than last year’s edition is exciting and our attendees will benefit greatly. Despite his busy schedule, he was gracious enough to slow down and answer a few questions for us.
1. Can you tell us what CREATIX Media does?
Creatix Media is a full service web agency, providing digital solutions aiming to increase the visibility and performance of our customers’ businesses. More specifically, we are focused on 3 main areas of activity:
– Graphic design – we create integrated visual identities, including branding / re-branding works, website design, marketing materials or product packaging design.
– Web development – we design and build corporate websites, online shops and also customized mobile applications.
– Online marketing – we create online marketing campaigns that help our customers promote their businesses in the online world, using tools like Search Engine Optimization, Pay-per-click advertising, Social Media and Email Marketing.
2. Can you give us some examples of design work you have done in the past?
The first thing that pops into my mind right now is, of course, Techsylvania :). We are proud to be Techsylvania’s design provider for both 2014 and 2015 editions and to have had the chance to give a hand in developing the Techsylvania brand – from the visual identity package to Techsylvania’s website design and the marketing materials for this event. Also, we had the opportunity to do design work for some other great local events, like Targul de Cariere, Jazz in the Park and Untold Festival. We are happy for any brand we help move forward and we are glad to have customers from almost any area of business: from tech online shops to fashion stores, real estate agencies or industrial companies. Our customers are so different because nowadays, every business, small or big, needs to take advantage of the online world.
3. What to you think about the web design market in Cluj?
Cluj-Napoca is a great place to have a web agency. For us, there are a lot of new opportunities every day. Cluj is a great economical center and the companies continually need to reinvent themselves in order to keep up with the market. And, as mentioned above, no business can afford to ignore the power of the online world anymore. Of course, there are also a lot of other great creative agencies in Cluj-Napoca, but this is just another proof of a grown and mature market.
