CREATV is a full service integrated marketing, communications, and strategic growth consultancy with an emphasis on digital mediums. Established in 2011 by Alana Joy, an award-winning digital strategist with 15 years of industry experience, we have a proven track record for crafting delightful, insightful, and beautiful initiatives. We live up to our name: creativity is the bridge we build between methods and metrics. We take a wide lens approach when formulating programs for the brands we work alongside, and then zoom in where we see opportunities for traction. Our clients aren’t just competitive, they’re innovators in their vertical. They are companies built by passionate risk takers, makers, and doers. It’s our ability to echo your brand’s story in a way that emotionally connects with your demographic, that sets us apart. Metrics matter: we personify the numbers, respect the audience you’re speaking to, and we understand how to connect on a human level. You don’t need buzz words and brand cuffs, you need to get Creatv.
