Mediocre Creative

Mediocre is an outfit of creative problem-solvers working together in central Kentucky. We ease branding and marketing headaches. Our partners are people like us: passionate, original, outspoken, and a little overzealous.


Shawn Saylor, Principal

Why is a healthy democracy important to achieving your company’s purpose?

We want to work with smaller, independent businesses as they build their dream. If they align with us ethically, they also see the value in everyone having a voice in deciding how our communities are organized, and it matters to them that we stay involved.

Why are voting rights important to your business?

We want to practice what we preach. If we encourage our clients to champion inclusivity, accessibility, and equity in their work, we want to champion the same things.

How do you encourage your employees to become more civically engaged?

We offer paid time off for all matters related to voting, and flexible schedules for community involvement. We schedule weekly time for volunteering, and each team member decides where to use that time. We actively encourage and remind our team to take these steps.

What are your company’s other projects to help support voters, protect elections, and overcome political divides?

We do pro bono and volunteer work with community organizations involved in these initiatives. We take on as much as we can fit into our calendar, often prioritizing it over paid work.

Why did you decide to become a member of Business for America?

A colleague shared the Time to Vote initiative and we dug in further from there.
