Lovio George Communications + Design is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, a milestone that leaves the Midtown-based business with a staff of a dozen employees and an intern.
The boutique communications and design agency has hired three people over the last year and is looking for an intern now. Those hires are thanks to a 20 percent jump in revenue growth, which is coming from a growing interest in Detroit.
"There has definitely been an uptick this last year," says John George, vice president & creative director for Lovio George Communications + Design
. "There has been an interest in Detroit from the local and the national level."
Lovio George Communications + Design was one of the earliest adopters to the Midtown area, setting up shop in the Wayne State University area by Christina Lovio-George. The creative agency has done work for a number of Detroit-centric causes, including winning Emmys for work in Detroit's Super Bowl and Detroit 300.
