Let’s discuss what you’re all thinking: You’re an office full of ex-junkies. Yup. We are mostly staffed by recovering addicts who have found their passion and purpose at Beit T’Shuvah, a nonprofit addiction treatment center in Los Angeles. While we have far exceeded our humble beginnings as just a few goofballs in the closet, we still honor our mission to train addicts in recovery in the marketing field. Our social mission is not tagged on; it is an essential element to our work product. We are set apart both by the good we produce and the good we become.
Why it should matter to you: We produce badass, out-of-the-box designs, copy, photography and video that make audiences hungry for social impact. We create for you as if our lives depend on it, because they do. Crazy? Oh yeah. But we’re obsessed with telling stories that connect and heal communities, stories that matter.
Friends with benefits
Since the beginning, Creative Matters has been fortunate enough to have friends and partners who help to support and grow our agency. We could not exist today without the transformative Cutting-Edge Grant from the Jewish Community Foundation, a grant from The Erwin Rautenberg Foundation, and the ongoing support of the Ross Endowment Fund. We also couldn’t have done it without the many helping hands along the way. We thank you.
