We're James & Tim. We're The Creative Grin.


The Creative Grin is made up of two friends native to the streets of Whittier, California. When we are not working full-time in the marketing industry, we provide top-shelf expertise to small businesses who desire big agency services, without the cost. The CG is your one-stop marketing duo.


We understand what it means to pour energy and resources into a dream, so we keep it simple. The CG is a stepping stone for small businesses transitioning into a medium-sized company.


The Creative Grin is down to earth, a tad goofy, honest when it counts and we can't wait to meet you. Consultations are free, meetings are fun but first and foremost, we are here to help.


If you have any questions feel free to email,  text,  or even better yet... drop us a line. We want your business dream to happen for you.

Meet Duke, CFO of The Creative Grin.


We wouldn't be anywhere without him. He joined the team the summer of 2015 and hit the ground running. Duke's a purebred dachshund passionate about investing, finances and the physics of ball bouncing. He has lots on his mind so if you'd like to keep up, subscribe to his mailing list below.
