The Uncommon Promise



“The Uncommon Creative Studio is a pleasure to work with. I saw how well Uncommon executed an event a few years ago, and hired them to help with the last two holiday parties and special events. Uncommon always takes our events to another level and makes them feel magical. They are my favorite vendor to work with, I appreciate the enthusiasm, creativity, flexibility, attention to detail, organization and professionalism. I look forward to working in the near future!”

"Katie Driver brings admirable care and attention to detail in the work she does. I have only seen this commitment a few times in my life (in production and beyond!) and it is a sight to see. Katie has elevated the bar for me to the point where I can't imagine doing a production without her. I would recommend her in a heartbeat and hope you are as lucky to hire Katie as I was!"

"I met Katie a few years ago when she was creating a special pipe & drape for a bride whose wedding I was coordinating. The concept sounded nice, but the finished product was beautiful.  Uncommon customized the pipe & drape to perfectly fit the back of the aisle entrance to the Chapel.  The bride was thrilled, and I was blown away by how this added such a beautiful accent for the entrance of the bridal party and, of course, the bride. Katie is a ‘perfectionist’ for detail and takes the time needed to makes sure the setup of this is done well & look just right. Uncommon is great to work with and has often been asked by other brides to setup this up for other weddings at our church."

"We have loved working with The Uncommon Creative Studio! Since Macy’s is a large corporation, we have big ideas for various in store events and Uncommon was able to bring all of them to life. Not only do they live up to the ‘creative’ part of the business by always taking the smallest idea to the next level, but the communication and transparency cannot be matched. We work with many different production companies all over the Midwest and Uncommon has provided the most comprehensive estimates and proposals where we know exactly where our money is going and how it is being used effectively down to the penny. Uncommon is timely, professional and an absolute pleasure to work with! We keep coming back and hope to keep building our creative relationship."

"We loved working with Uncommon for my daughter’s wedding. Their calmness, orderliness and creativity inspired more than just the bride for sure! We loved how they arranged our meetings with clear goals each time and how Uncommon has such a personal touch with the creative pieces too!  They are very skilled, and I would recommend Uncommon without a moment's hesitation!"

"Uncommon managed the décor for our son’s wedding in October 2017.  They did a great job interpreting and executing the bride and groom’s wishes in a very cost effective manner.  Katie and her staff worked hard and did a great job on the day of the event and maintained a cheerful, positive attitude throughout.  We would highly recommend Uncommon's services and we couldn’t have done it without them."

"I’ve hired Katie for various TV commercial projects. When it comes to dressing a set, Katie is highly resourceful, but also isn’t afraid to create a specialty prop, if necessary. She doesn’t cut corners and expects a high level of quality from herself and her team. She brings a fresh, positive, energy to the set and works hard until the project is wrapped and the paperwork is complete. Katie is a solid partner to have by your side."

"Words can't express how happy we are that we chose Uncommon Creative Studio for our daughter's wedding decor. They took care of every detail, leaving us with no worries or concerns. From initial discussions to final product, our daughter's vision was executed to perfection!"

"The Uncommon Creative Studio exceeded our expectations in helping my daughter and I create a  unique and magical wedding!  We were drawn to Katie's warm personality and enthusiasm from the start. Their attention to detail, organization, and eye for uniqueness was evident from beginning to end.  It was a joy to work with The Uncommon Creative Studio!"

"We could not have been more impressed and thankful for Katie and her team while planning our wedding and on the big day! It was absolutely amazing to walk into our reception and see our vision brought to life. The Uncommon team’s creativity made the day beautiful, and their organization made the day effortless. We have nothing but positive things to say about our experience and truly feel we couldn’t have done it without them!"

"Funny enough, I feel like I found Katie in the most “uncommon way” and we couldn’t have been more lucky to have her. I began our adventure while outsourcing for our annual corporate event design and décor planning ideas. I posted on Craigslist and she found me actually! I told her what our dream ideas were and she came back with various options to cater to our vision, and budget needs without feeling like we missed our mark and of course without any judgement! She was incredibly organized, efficient, talented, professional… I mean I could go on and on for days about her. Her handmade technique and products are the highest of quality that we were able to reuse the items in other ways for our business and continue to talk about having her around for future projects (I’m literally having her quote out our next project as I type this!). Katie is an excellent resource to have and would recommend her in a heartbeat. Her thought process, the way she problem solves, her creativity, she’s a breath of fresh air and I wish I could keep her in my back pocket at all times. Which I intend to do so! She was (and is!) a gem of a find. And I’m so lucky to have found each other that one day."

"Katie's creativity and organization were exactly what we needed. She used the bride's watercolor painting and created the most beautiful event day stationary (program, table numbers, directions, place cards, signage, and thank you notes). She handled all of the late night snack bar design/purchases and displayed it beautifully. She walked us through table arrangements, seating charts, and room layout and was an immense help in decorating and take down. We wished we would've worked with her from the beginning of wedding planning! She went above and behind what we could have imagined! Thanks, Katie!!! You're the best!"
