how we started

As a child, Blaise Lavandero had dreamt of creating his own animation studio, and had grown up working to make this dream a reality. Finally, in 2016, Blaise brought Blaise Motion and Graphic Studio to fruition. 

In early 2017, the agency has been renamed to Blaise Studio Graphics before finally settling on the name Bontrava, shortening the French phrase “bon travail”  which translates to “good work”. 

In 2018, the agency was renamed to CreativeLair, which today specializes in creative branding–aiming to make clients’ brands timeless and memorable. 

Through the years, Creativelair has expanded their menu of services to include website design & development, digital marketing content development, post-creative strategy, and video & animation.

Like Blaise’s chidlhood dream, Creativelair believes in transforming ideas into reality by taking the time to understand our clients’ needs and improving in every area of our work.
