We’ve got Mojo.
(In every sense of the word!)

For the last 13 years, Crux, woman owned-and certified, has delivered exceptional creative, marketing and digital communications. Driven by a commitment to be the best in our field and fueled by our energetic imaginations, we deliver breakthrough creative grounded in results-driven strategies for every client – every time.

We also live and work in the virtual world.

As a cutting-edge creative and marketing agency, we’ve become experts in positioning clients in all forms, from print, web, marketing to an exhibit. Plus, Crux also functions as an integrated agency setting up and managing marketing automation, pay-per-click and so much more!

Our business model is lean and keen.

Our onsitestaff is supported by an extraordinarily-deep consulting network of expert writers, designers and web site developers when needed. This innovative structure not only allows us to offer more attractive pricing, but to engage the most talented professionals available – whatever your project, time frame or location.

Our home is MKE, but our clients are nationwide.

With our headquarters in Milwaukee, we’re conveniently located for clients in both urban offices and suburban campuses. And since much of our business is conducted digitally, Crux can and does work virtually with clients across the country.

Our company mascot represents and inspires our culture.

His name is Mojo. (Honest!) A purebred American Bulldog, he’s loyal, supportive and embodies the verve, devotion and tenacity we bring to every project. (He’s got a great sense of humor too!) All of which makes him a great pet, watchdog and symbol of our company.

The truth about awards.

Everybody wins some. From somewhere. For something. Some time. So what’s the big deal?

Well, here’s the truth of the matter. Despite the cynical comments above, winning awards is a pretty true test of where agencies rank compared to their competition. Bad creative usually doesn’t win awards. Neither does bad strategy. And, as a general rule, good marketing communications sells products more effectively than bad does. So while our winning tons of awards doesn’t guarantee you sales, it is a very, very good sign that the work we’ll do for you will.
