Going about our business

Since 1994, The Creative Department has focused on answering business challenges with creative problem-solving techniques. The firm’s solutions are based on the obstacles companies face in today’s competitive climate. You can check out some of the business questions we’ve resolved for our clients here.

Company founders Ron and Angela Michka have worked in advertising, design and marketing for more than 20 years. When they realized that traditional approaches to business problem solving lacked the creativity needed to come up with more innovative solutions, they began The Creative Department and grew it into what it is today – a full-service strategic design company dedicated to helping companies achieve their goals. Working with clients in a variety of industries, on a wide range of projects, TCD goes about the business of formulating strategic design solutions, every day.


Our office is located in the historic Livestock Exchange Building in Kansas City. Stop by and say hello. Or if you have a business problem that can’t wait, don't.
