Our agency was founded in 2008, but our key team members have worked together for years. We’re experienced advertising, design and direct marketing practitioners, who combine a passion for effective communications with a strong dedication to our clients’ brands. We believe that every marketing piece needs to clearly tell the audience what’s in it for them and motivate them to act. We’re all about the creative – but never at the expense of our clients’ business needs. Our hands-on approach comes from our many years of working in bigger agencies, where lots of layers and red tape sometimes got in the way of the work. At Kreativ Rehab, we believe that good things happen when the clients and the people actually doing the work talk to each other. Which is why our clients have direct access to our Kreativ Thinkers, Designers and Writers.

Kreativ Rehab has done an extraordinary job creating exciting, dynamic materials that are a fresh expression of our brand while also meeting our marketing objectives and often very tight deadlines.
