Creatv specializes in integrated digital marketing and communications strategies, for measurable growth that scales with your business.
Creatv was founded by Alana Joy, a multidisciplinary digital strategist who has been working with startups and enterprise businesses for almost 20 years. Over her career, she’s worked as a consultant, in partnership with advertising and public relations agencies, and in-house holding senior roles. An early adopter since the mid-90’s, she has been a fixture in digital spaces as the internet has evolved, bringing a particularly nuanced insight to the clients she works with.
Since 2009 Alana has been speaking about data privacy and portability on outlets such as CNBC, ABC News, and in countless publications. She has been a host, correspondent, featured speaker, and content creator for outlets such as ThisWeekIn, Media Bistro, LA Weekly, RWW, SXSWi, Mashable, Huffington Post and others. Formerly the co-Managing Director of the Girls In Tech LA Chapter, Alana has sat on Advisory Boards for Social Media Week and Oregon State University, where she has also been an adjunct professor teaching courses on digital marketing.
After spending time living in New York, Miami, and Los Angeles, Alana now lives in Portland, OR with her daughter and two little dogs and is currently (still) working her first book, Any Memes Necessary, about how meme culture is shaping our society at large.
