We clarify your message and use design to tell your story to scale your business and grow your community.

Who We Are...
HAVEN CREATIVE is a team of passionate creative marketing professionals (Mavens) dedicated to growing brands through integrated marketing solutions. We offer a combination of research, strategy, creativity and action.

How it all began...
After relocating to the Charlotte area from Los Angeles, Jeni Bukolt started Haven Creative in the fall of 2012. Building upon her 18+ years of professional experience in marketing, communications, and branding, Jeni began working with local governments and developers to create comprehensive brand identities for communities. Driven by a passion for creating inclusive environments and “connecting the dots” (more on that in the Maven Method), she has been on a mission to impact a million lives ever since.

Our Mission to a Million...

Community branding isn’t just what we do, it’s our ethos -- our commitment to making a positive impact in the lives of the people and the communities we serve. We have a motto at the HAVEN, to make mavens of our peers and partners. This motto means sharing knowledge, being considerate and providing customer centric solutions. 

Our BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) is to impact one million lives through our work and become the global leader in community branding. 

To do it, we utilize our diverse, creative talent from anywhere and everywhere.

And just to be clear -- you do NOT have to be a FEMALE to be a MAVEN. We believe communties are powered by creativity and creativity is sparked from diversity. We are an equal opportunity employer and work hard to uphold a culture where our mavens feel valued, seen and heard.
