Creative partners

THIS IS Our Process

COLLABORATE

Teamwork is the key to success. Collaborating with our client partners to understand their needs & agendas and pair them with experienced Pulse Creative members has been the foundation of our best work. Through collaboration, we accomplish bigger things than we would going at it alone.

CREATE

We pride ourselves in creating multi-faceted solutions across all platforms and environments against an evolving, fast-paced world. Creating goes beyond just pretty pictures. We create purpose, awareness and conversation. And we develop content that resonates with today’s consumer – from soup to nuts; from pixel to print; from desktop to mobile, and from mobile to beyond.

CONNECT

Through smart marketing based on research and strategic thinking, Pulse Creative connects brands to people. Connecting every dot is crucial. Our dedicated research and strategy teams collect the proper data and analytics to always stay ahead of the curve. Pair that with a versatile design/production team and you’ll be engaging with your audience in no time.

AWARD WINNING WORK

Since 2004, our reputation has grown from being a small boutique agency to winning national and international awards year after year. These accolades define the caliber of our work throughout the years, and our commitment to quality for our clients.

Behind the scenes

PulseCreative_TeamHeadshots_AllisonS_Normal_01

Allison Sacco

Creative Camp Counselor

Allison jumps around doing what needs to get done at work. Some days, she is a financial reports machine. Other days, you’ll find her crafting invitations or behind a computer focused on photo retouching. On interesting days, you will find her with a bullhorn corralling the Pulse Creative herd.

Alison is an admin who spends her time crunching numbers, crossing the “i’s” & dotting the “t’s” [queue laugh track here]. Usually working remotely on the west coast in sunny Los Angeles, you can sometimes catch her in the NYC office working in her personal cubed room that’s no larger than 100 square feet with no windows.

Melanie Ediza

Account Angel

Melanie’s tenacity towards excellence is rivaled only by her dedication to bringing fun to all projects she oversees.

Graphic Design

Pixel Overlord
