Creative Compound is a space where innovative thinkers and storytellers come together to create lasting partnerships with our clients. We are award-winning brand strategists, insight specialists, writers, creative directors, designers, producers, feature filmmakers, response gurus, a photojournalist whose pictures have been on the cover of Time & Newsweek ten times, and a talking office dog.
Authentic Strategic Creative Services
Whether your goal is to build a brand, increase response, or both, we deliver corporate photo and video production services that inspire thought, feeling, and action. We bring brand voices to life with vivid authenticity by building everything we do around real human moments.
In-House TV & Video Production
Our agency was built on a strong production foundation. After all, we began as a production studio. We give lights, monitors, mics and cameras their own office. They’re there when we need them, and when we need them, they go big. We house two truckloads of equipment – enough to make a feature film.
Perhaps more important than our level of expertise is that we believe in partnering with you to understand your business objectives, market environment, and internal strengths or challenges to help you formulate a fact-based marketing strategy that will be the foundation you use for on- and-offline marketing for years to come.
Led by award-winning White House photojournalist Jeffrey Markowitz, our photography strives to capture the real essence of a brand. From start to finish, we ideate the shoot and deliver a vast image bank that can be used across all tactics, from print to social media. The result is a truly custom, cohesive look that reflects the brand and strategy, right down to the core.
As CEO and Creative Director of Creative Compound, Jeffrey has overseen production and creative of thousands of national commercials, large photo campaigns for major brands as well as tens of thousands of web content pieces.
He works regularly with brands such as MUFG, Union Bank, Conagra, Disney, Sony, Nestle, Quicken Loans, Burger King and more.
Jeffrey began his career as a professional photojournalist at the age of 22 working at The Washington Post and continuing for years after at the Associated Press, Time Magazine, and Newsweek. By 27, he had photographed 5 U.S. Presidents and hundreds of world leaders including Nelson Mandela, Gorbachev, The Pope, and Mother Teresa. His photos have been on the cover of Time and Newsweek Magazine numerous times, winning Time’s prestigious Photo of the Year award twice. He has captured iconic images of celebrities, actors, and musicians including Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, Robert Redford, Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Aerosmith, U2, Bob Dylan, and Red Hot Chili Peppers among many more. In his last days as a photojournalist, he covered President Clinton as a pool photographer having access to the oval office and traveling on Air Force One.
