Our Story

Black-owned, women-led multicultural marketing agency.

Why did we 2 Black women dare to start a new business in a cultural and global pandemic? Because we were tired of hearing that marketers were looking for strong multicultural agencies and could not find them. We were tired of not seeing women launch and lead in the advertising and marketing industries. So, we decided to change it.

Pop’N Creative was born out of a deep desire to see brands win in marketing to a multicultural world. Gone are the days of marketing to “mainstream”, meaning predominantly white.

Black-owned business owners matter. Black women matter. Multicultural audiences matter. Period.
