Celebrated Locally, Recognized Nationally — MC Honored with Pair of Awards

March came in like a lion for Miranda Creative. In one exciting week, we were honored with not just one but two prestigious awards celebrating our commitment to excellence, innovation, and community impact.

First, we are delighted to share that Miranda Creative has been recognized as the Eastern Connecticut Chamber of Commerce’s 2023 Small Business of the Year. This honor is particularly meaningful to us because it highlights the collective effort of our entire team and the impact we’ve had on our local community.

We’re also thrilled to announce that our founder and Creative Director, Maria Miranda, has been named the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Small Business Owner of the Year for Connecticut. This recognition is a testament to Maria’s visionary leadership and dedication to driving positive change, not only within our agency but also within the broader small business community in Connecticut.

These awards come on the heels of a period of remarkable growth and resilience for Miranda Creative. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, we nearly doubled in size, creating jobs and opportunities at a time when they were desperately needed.

While these awards mark significant milestones in our journey, it’s important to acknowledge the incredible team and clients who have propelled Miranda Creative to this point. Our agency is powered by 30 extraordinary professionals, each bringing unique talents and expertise to the table. From captivating design and animation to cutting-edge digital technologies, our team excels across diverse domains, driving excellence in everything we do.

Moreover, our success wouldn’t be possible without the unwavering support of our clients, who trust us to tackle their most complex challenges with ingenuity and flair. Together, our team and clients have fostered an amazing community — one that thrives on creativity, innovation, and seamless collaboration. Whether it’s crafting compelling branding for Hartford Public Library or the City of Groton, promoting heritage tourism in Norwich, or supporting the vital work of organizations like CT Paid Leave or the Mystic Seaport Museum, we’re proud to play a role in telling the stories of our communities. 

And, of course, none of this would be possible without the support of our local community, which has been with us every step of the way as we’ve grown and evolved. We’re deeply grateful for the opportunity to give back through our work with non-profits, municipal governments, and public sector agencies, and we remain committed to serving as a force for positive change in the communities we call home.

As we celebrate both local and national recognition, we’re reminded that success is never the result of individual effort alone. It’s the culmination of the hard work, dedication, and collaboration of a team of passionate individuals who share a common purpose. At Miranda Creative, we’re incredibly fortunate to have such a team, and we look forward to continuing our journey together, making a difference one creative project at a time.
