Principal and Creative Director
With a diverse background in design and marketing communications, Aimee got her start in the solar industry in 2000. Working for a solar company confirmed her commitment to innovative environmental stewardship. Bringing her technical expertise together with her design and marketing experience, Aimee has helped to strategically define visual identities and marketing for B-to-B and B-to-C companies regional, national, and international in scope.
Aimee founded Corbae Creative in 2002. She has had the opportunity to work with amazing solar and clean tech/transportation companies over the years, helping drive design and marketing strategy in unique ways. Never forgetting that design needs to be effective, Aimee works closely with marketing, sales, and engineering teams to ensure on point messaging that tells a story in a visual way.
Aimee has spoken about design as a marketing strategy in the solar industry as well as published pieces offering practical advice to help design stand out.
Prior to founding Corbae Creative, she wore various hats, including a graphic designer for a renewable energy company, a proposal and marketing coordinator for several architecture firms, and managed an art gallery. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in English and has participated in extensive continuing education courses.
Aimee also enjoys seeing her two boys grow and actively engaging in their education and play, is a voracious reader, loves hiking, is happiest when creating, and used to enjoy home improvement projects before the “honey do” list got so long.
Corbae Creative operates as a virtual agency, calling upon appropriate talent for the specific project, as opposed to employing a large team. Below are some of the amazing people we regularly work with.
Glenna has been involved in marketing solar since 2007. In 2012 she moved from her role as vice president of marketing for a California-based installer to principal of a marketing services firm working with clients along the solar supply chain. This wide range of clients has included manufacturers to installers, financing entities to solar O&M providers and across continents to international firms.
In 2013 Glenna initiated an industry contribution related to women in solar and marketing solar to women. She has presented on this subject via Solar Power International 2013 and 2015; GRID Alternatives Women in Solar webinar series, Enphase Energy Dealer Empowerment program and through many solar industry trade publications.
She has contributed to industry publications and talk show formats, co-hosted the popular SolarChat series and been a featured speaker at Solar Power International and Intersolar North America. She has worked actively on green building and city sustainability programs through the U.S. Green Building Council, CA Local Governments Commission, and her hometown, City of Redlands Climate Action Task Force.
Rachel is a graphic designer with a passion for environmental stewardship. Working for Corbae Creative has given her the opportunity to join her love of design and sustainable practices together. She enjoys the satisfaction of turning jumbled information into user-friendly visuals for clients.
After graduating with a degree in Public Relations from the University of South Florida, Rachel worked in the non-profit sector as a Publications Specialist for Eckerd Youth Alternatives. She returned to school to pursue Graphic Design and graduated from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. She worked as a graphic designer and was later promoted to the Production Manager at the Charleston City Paper in South Carolina.
Being a proud and supportive Coast Guard spouse has given her the opportunity to live in a variety of locations over the years, giving her the experience to be inspired by many influences and freelance along the way. Rachel is an active volunteer, enjoying giving back to whichever community she currently lives in. She enjoys building her experience ladder through new adventures with her husband and two children or professionally through continuous skills development. Someday, she will be found living in an RV traveling full-time but for now will settle for camping and enjoying the great outdoors on the weekends.
