Lansing is the home to several creative service companies ranging from communications and graphic design to marketing and advocacy and much more. Lansing surprises many as the hub for so many creative industry companies, often being perceived as an industrial town that moonlights as the Capitol City. In reality, Lansing has a vibrant arts and music scene to go along with a highly professional and political environment. Bridging the gap between these two seemingly opposite worlds are the creative industries that make Lansing their home. Whether it be a graphic designer who designed the logo on your coffee cup or a public relations firm directing the conversation on a politically dicey issue, creative industry companies thrive in Lansing.
While many of these companies are scattered throughout the city, the vast majority can be found in Old Town, the original downtown of Lansing. Old Town is a hip, creative community with historic buildings, vibrant festivals, galleries, and boutiques. While at night Old Town is a hopping, funky destination repleat with Jazz shows and dancing, the daytime is a serious professional environment that is home to some of the most influential creative minds in the state.
