A symbol that tells the world who you are. Images carefully created to set you apart from the competition. Succinct messages to break through the noisy confusion of information overload. Questioning old assumptions to make processes more efficient and effective. Having employees and shareholders feel confident about their company. Breaking down complicated, abstract concepts into simple, understandable messages. All these elements are pieces of the puzzle to make you brand strong. That is what Ratcliff Creative is all about.

Michael Ratcliff started out long ago as a lowly production artist pulling stats, working his way through the ranks to ascend to the role of Creative Director for Schlumberger, the world’s largest oilfield service company. Throughout his career, he has focused on providing innovative design solutions for corporations who look to acquire new customers while retaining existing ones.
His design and advertising work has been recognized by numerous industry organizations, including The American Advertising Federation, The American Marketing Association, The Business Marketing Association, The International Association of Business Communicators and Print magazine.
Although born in Louisiana, Michael got to Texas as fast as he could, and resides west of Houston with his wife and three children. He holds the steadfast belief that good design can indeed change the world, and that the French press is the optimal way to brew a superior cup of coffee.
