Hardtack Creative is a Los Angeles based hybrid advertising agency and production company.
Our roots are in Silicon Beach, working with some of the West Coasts' most successful startups. So we're disruptive by nature. We're lean, nimble and responsive. From creative development to broadcast, we're smooth and efficient. By streamlining creative and production, we reduce costs, increase value, and speed communication. The end result is top quality work and great relationships with our client partners.
We're experts at creating content that works for TV and digital. From national broadcast television to re-targets on YouTube, we know the nuances of the mediums and what works where. But the common ingredient is a good story well told. There's a lot of noise out there. Why should consumers listen to you? Because you have a story to tell. And Hardtack Creative is here to help you tell it.
Carter was part of the executive marketing teams that launched some of LA's most successful startups, where he applied his talents in both art and commerce. He's also been a journalist, screenwriter and a director. The common thread here is that he likes telling stories. But as much as he likes to make stuff up, he knows that every good story has a truth that defines it. When Carter is not behind the lens, or staring at a blank page trying to come with something clever, he's with his three kids, trying to figure out if they're telling him the truth.
Jehan has worked both sides of the fence, representing brands and agencies. Her determination and neurosis for organization propels her to the zenith of client services and productive production. She's worked on accounts for PepsiCo, Gatorade and Ford. When Jehan isn't creating timelines and budgets, she's usually on a DELTA plane or in the lounge just for fun. Skymiles are everything to her.
