The Celarity Story

Striving to Exceed Expectations.

Marlene and Doug Phipps embarked on their first entrepreneurial venture in 1990, launching Phipps Creative Services, a small design shop offering design, illustration, and copywriting services to local clients. But by 1993, in response to an increased demand for on-site creative freelancers to work alongside clients, Marlene blazed the trail with an innovative and original kind of agency called Freelance Creative.

Over time, Freelance Creative evolved into what is now known as Celarity: a Staffing & Recruiting Agency for Marketing, Creative & Digital Talent

Celarity has always been a family-owned business and in 2020, Marlene & Doug’s sons, Robert and John Arnold, stepped into ownership roles.

Under new ownership, Celarity is still committed to continuing the tradition of nurturing company values of professionalism, helpfulness, and passion while striving to exceed client and talent expectations.

One way to honor previous ownership is the introduction of the Phipps Vision Award in 2020. Each quarter, one team member wins the award based on their display of company values.

This quarter’s award recipient is Senior Recruiter Ashlee Walstad!

Between leading our DEI&B initiatives, volunteering for special initiatives, and having the most placements on our team in Q1, we’re so thankful for all that Ashlee contributes to our community.
