Deftly Creative was formed in 2018, in Muncie Indiana, by three talented and creative individuals while completing their masters' degree in Emerging Media Design and Development (EMDD) at Ball State University.

Darik (the Developer) and Erika (the Designer) first met while working as the department's Graduate Assistants and developed a good working relationship. When Erika was ready to leave her part-time job in search of new challenges, it happened to line up with Darik's efforts to start a new media company. Thus, a partnership was created.

When it came time to create some of the company's promotional materials, Darik and Erika searched their EMDD cohort members for additional help. Michaela, a photojournalist, was recruited to help with a photo shoot. She enjoyed the shoot so much, she asked more about Deftly and, shortly after that, joined the company.

This trio of design thinkers worked out of spare bedrooms and coffee shops for a few weeks before moving into the Innovation Connector, where they set up their first office. Inspired by a traditional workshop, the space was designed with industrial-grade furniture and storage, to promote creativity and a state-of-the-art working environment.

Since it's creation, Deftly's client work has taken its staff all over the country.
