Ocreative Celebrates 15 Years of Business
An integrated marketing agency, Ocreative focuses on hunger, culture, and crew.
It was 2003 – a time when the phenom, iTunes Music, had just rocked the market, but other online giants like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube did not even exist yet. The dot-com bubble had burst and 34% of the U.S. population was using dial-up internet. Andrea Koeppel, a fresh-to-the-market, award-winning designer, saw the need for bold creative in traditional media and a growing need for digital marketing. Koeppel put her talents to use and fearlessly started a new business – a marketing agency by the name of Ocreative Design Studio. The name, rooted in the phrase, “Oh that’s creative!“, connected her eye for design, with the common response she would so often get when showing her work from her very first studio – thus Ocreative Design Studio was born. Initially, Andrea ran Ocreative as a one-woman show, wearing every hat from designing to managing the business successfully to attract more clients. As need grew, the business quickly added additional creative talent and saw steady growth year-over-year. A growing staff and space led the team to drop “Design Studio” and take on the simple and unmistakable moniker, Ocreative.
