Featured ProjectClient: Christopher Hotels
For hotels to stand out from the competition and get bookings, it’s vital to have a website that showcases the property while being easy to use. Stenger Creative worked with C.P. Management, a hotel management company, to bring together their portfolio of properties into one site called Christopher Hotels. The challenge was to combine C.P. Management’s Hilton and Choice Hotel franchise properties with the non-franchise Christopher Inn into one umbrella website. The result is a site that delivers an intuitive navigation and a warm, inviting design with a particular focus on user experience. The new Christopher Hotels website adapts to all mobile phone, tablet and desktop devices to ensure easy booking on the go.
“We are very pleased with the design, it’s very clean and represents our brand well. Some of our properties are non-franchise hotels and don’t have the large brand affiliation. Since our online reservations are increasing year after year, we needed a strong, visually appealing website to attract the younger generation and tech savvy customers via multiple devices.”

The Ohio Grape Industries Committee has worked with Stenger Creative for more than 12 years to create one-of-a-kind, elegant promotion pieces such as the Ohio Wine Guide and Ohio Quality Wine promotion pieces.
The Ohio Grape Industries Committee would highly recommend Stenger Creative, as they have proven time and time again to be professional, creative and very easy to work with.
My name is John Boggess, Merchandising Manager, for G&L Pepsi-Cola Bottlers, and I have been working with Stenger Creative over the past three years exclusively with Chris Stenger and Mark Laski on numerous projects.
I have work with other companies that have offered different design and marketing solutions, and Stenger Creative is clearly the overwhelming leader in terms of professionalism, production quality, and customer service. Listed below are a few examples of designs, which were created that have sparked sales and enthusiasm regarding our brand(s):
WalMart Pet Profit Rack—Designed side panels and channel strips depicting Pepsi in a glass along with the package offerings that were merchandised on the rack. The Pepsi National Team described the rack and graphics — BEST IN QUALITY & DESIGN.
Ice Box Graphics — Designed Pepsi & Mt. Dew graphics that covered two old ice chests and brought them back to life. The ice chests are located at a Convenience and Gas store at Buckeye Lake, and Stenger Creative tied-in water sports, Pepsi I Mt. Dew, and ice into the graphics to bring more curb appeal to the outside store décor.
Burgers, Dogs, & Fries — Designed two different window concepts for both downtown Columbus locations. The business owners were trying to brand their new stores and tie-in Pepsi with their store front. Stenger Creative did a remarkable job with the design concepts, and more importantly the store owners LOVE the NEW GRAPHICS on their windows.
There is one high profile project that we are currently working on that is very exciting! Stenger Creative met with the General Manage of the OSU Gateway Theater and Pepsi to determine what would look the best tying in the theater, and Pepsi brands for window graphics that would be a focal point above the theater entrance. Stenger Creative offered several solution for window graphics and applications. The design is simply incredible! Stenger Creative has, and will continue to be an integral partner in the success with providing unique merchandising applications.
Back in 2009 we launched our company and hired Stenger Creative to help assist us in the development of our corporate material. They displayed a great ability to LISTEN first and get a solid understand of who we were and what our corporate objectives were.
They are very well balanced team that possesses strong business acumen in conjunction with great ability to manage complex project all the way through in a timely manner.
The creative side is second to none, and we found ourselves always impressed with the vast amount of ideas and options brought to the table for review. Due to the amount of experience in a vast array of projects they have been involved with over the years, they excelled at meeting our goals and objectives, but also had the foresight to be thinking ahead of what may be needed as our business grows.
As a small business, we don’t have an internal marketing team, and knew we needed to find a partner that we could count on form both large projects such as web design/corporate identity, in addition to the quick turnaround of business cards and letterhead. They are the creative team we turn to for all our creative needs, as they hit the target on time every time.
I have had the opportunity to work with Chris Stenger and Stenger Creative over the past several years in two different capacities. First, I was a volunteer for a non-profit organization in which Stenger Creative designed several pieces of promotional and marketing materials to announce and advertise a large fundraising event. Because of the quality of work that was created, I recently hired Stenger Creative as a contractor for professional assistance. I chose this company based on the quality of their work and my need to develop a brand logo, web site as well a marketing brochure.
I knew based on my previous experience working with Chris, I would be given his full attention as well as insight on how to incorporate a unique design that would allow my newly formed Institute to stand alone and be recognized for the work that is being accomplished. Both Chris and Mark provided me with timely and insightful responses as well as guidance when I need their professional opinion.
I have received several compliment on the work Stenger Creative completed for me and I have been told by several internal associates that the quality of their work is far better than most in the same industry.
I strongly recommend hiring Stenger Creative because of the exceptional experience I had with them.
