YOU'VE GOT LIMITED TIME & RESOURCES

Play to Your Strengths

You’ve already done the hard part — building a career based on what you love and are uniquely good at. But, like all organizations, you have limited time and resources. Can you really afford to spend hours on the phone with the printer talking about crops and bleeds, writing web copy, Googling, vetting and managing freelancers, or slogging through an HTML for Dummies book?

Try Our Model

EVERYONE WINS WITH OUR

Game-Changing Model

Creative Quarterback brings together the best of two worlds — the big-boy marketing talent you’d find at a traditional agency and today’s flexible and cost-efficient freelance workforce. We draft and manage teams of creative freelancers (who actually talk to each other) and give you a single point-of-contact for creative requests (a.k.a. “Quarterback”). This frees you from day-to-day people and task management so you can focus on vision, reviews, and approvals — the things only you can do.

Plus, our lean business model means we don’t pass through costs to maintain a brick and mortar studio, buy expensive equipment, or pay full-time staff who don’t actually work on your projects. So, what’s the downside? Well, we haven’t found one… but we’ll keep you posted.
