Project Manager

EPIC Creative


It’s a bold name, right? We knew that 31 years ago when we started as a video production company working with environmentally-conscious brands. A lot has changed since then, but our name (and what it represents) hasn’t. We’re now the 5th largest full-service advertising agency in Southeast Wisconsin. And what makes us EPIC is the work we do and the way we do it.  


We’re hybrid. What’s that mean? Well, it means work from where you’re comfortable: your home, the garage, a coffee shop, anywhere with decent wi-fi. And sometimes that means working from the office, because as we all know nothing compares to the electricity of an in-person creative brainstorm or connecting with a client face-to-face. 


We’re all proud to call West Bend home—or home away from home. The air is fresher, life is easier, and the green space makes us feel more connected to our customers and the markets we serve. We're in the heart of downtown, with an amazing park system and dozens of rivers and trails right in our backyard—all accessible at any point in the day you’re looking for inspiration.
