Long Story

Short

STARTED
FROM THE BOTTOM
NOW WE'RE HERE

2001

The Praktis was formed by 2 college students

Founders Tobias Rose of NCCU and Daryl Wade of Pitt were inspired by thought leaders in website development who were creating engaging websites. They wanted to push the limits on creativity by telling stories in a more appealing manner.

In 2016, the founders of The Praktis reunited in the Kompleks Creative office.

2006

The Praktis rebranded and Kompleks Creative is born

When considering the future of The Praktis, Tobias wanted to focus on the creative aspect of the business by making graphic design its core. He believed that design was a way to take complex thoughts and simplify them into a practical solution. After falling in love with the phonetic spelling of the word complex, he made a few visual changes to come up with the new company name and logo.

Kompleks Creative branded t-shirts in red and black, our primary colors.

2006

Kompleks Creative expands and moves into first office

As the workload increased, colocation was vital for collaboration, so we moved into our first Durham office. After a couple of years in our first office, we moved across the hall to a larger space that better accommodated the size of our team.

2014

Kompleks Creative moves to 106 West Parrish St in Downtown Durham

Our team continued to grow, as did our capabilities. We determined that a Downtown Durham office on historic Black Wall Street was most suitable for our strategic endeavors and more accessible to our clients. We love being in the heart of Durham.

Founder Tobias Rose started Kompleks Creative in an NCCU dorm.

2016

Kompleks Creative celebrates 10 years

Ten years later, we are proud of the digital agency that we have become and our impact on businesses and organizations in North Carolina and beyond. We have worked with hundreds of clients that offer a variety of services. Not only are we committed to client success, but also to being a steward of the Durham community.
