After graduating from the Savannah College of Art & Design (commonly referred to as SCAD), with a bachelor's degree in Graphic Design, Flora Stopher moved to Atlanta and began her design career. After working for a couple of larger companies, one a design firm, and the second being a large printing company, she struck out on her own - less than two full years out of college. In 1994, Imagine Advertising was founded, and three years later (in 1997), it was officially incorporated as a full-fledged advertising agency.
Initially serving as a creative and copy-writing resource within a variety of industries, she began receiving a few projects from a major mattress manufacturer, which then lead to further assignments within the home furnishings category.
Working out of her apartment and using the kitchen table as her office (beloved yellow lab at her side), over time, her design abilities became increasingly recognized by many of the top furniture brands, which led to an expansion of both her staff and the services offered.
Today, Imagine Advertising employs dozens of dedicated employees that continue to support Flora's initial vision. The kitchen table is long gone, having been replaced by a 20,000 square-foot facility in the newly-formed city of Peachtree Corners, a bucolic enclave in northeast Atlanta not far from the Chattahoochee River.
"Today our talent is deep. Our resources, limitless. Ours is a culture of collaboration, innovation, strategy and execution that creates and electrifies memorable, effective solutions. Just ask the many of the country’s top retailers, manufacturers and buying groups that have partnered with us over the past 20 years. They will likely have glowing things to say, just as many other industry leaders have recognized our passion for this business."
