With Us

What is unique about working with us? It’s a question we ask ourselves with every project request. Sure, we understand that consumer decisions are based on emotion, we’re committed to exploring new trends and have a knack for intuitive solutions. These are not small things. They’ve been cultivated from years of experiments, failures, learning and experience.
But why work with us? Because work should be fun. We become that extension of your team that you kind of want to invite to your next party.
Work Should Be Fun

Meet The Founders

Hi there, we’re Jared and Melissa, the founders of Coulee Creative. We met years ago at a medium-sized advertising agency where we learned a ton of dos and some don’ts for a successful business in our industry. There were project deadlines, happy hours, big client proposals and a few sparks flying. One big proposal, but that was years after our old agency days. We started Coulee Creative in 2006, threw the best ever 4th of July party in 2008, got married in 2011, brought on another developer and designer in 2012, won Halloween costume contests two years in a row (2013, 2014 and hoping for a three-peat), added another copywriter and had our beautiful daughter in 2014.
How do we do it? Don’t worry, we get asked that all the time. Running a business together presents its challenges, but the benefits are pretty awesome. We’ve built a solid foundation, both personally and professionally, by following a few simple guidelines: treat each other with respect, communicate openly and enjoy a good laugh. We carry these principles over into how we work with our team and our clients because every solid relationship needs a good foundation. And a good dose of fun.
