DLU Member Spotlight: Amy Jones of Burning Stick Creative
Our next DLU Member Spotlight video focuses on local branding visionary, Amy Jones. Amy’s full-service advertising agency, Burning Stick Creative, is headquartered on Garfield Street—in a prime spot for live music lovers—directly across from Parc International. You can find the Burning Stick staff taking full advantage of their location during Downtown Alive!, Festival International, and the many other festivals and live events hosted at Parc International on a regular basis.
Amy is a firm believer in the importance of Downtown Lafayette to the Acadiana region. “There’s an energy to Downtown that doesn’t exist anywhere else in the Parish,” says Amy “there’s this constant vibe that anything is possible because of what’s happening down here. It’s creative, it’s growing fast, it’s bringing in those that are tech entrepreneurs.”
Burning Stick Creative joined DLU in 2018 to become a part of the movement of Downtown stakeholders working together to grow the district. “There’s really a collaborative spirit that exists down here. Downtown wants to see its neighbors succeed. We want to see success happen for the people that are investing their time and investing their talent into revitalizing an area that is absolutely crucial for the future of Lafayette.”
