Meet The Founders

Howdy, we're Jared & Melissa

We met years ago at an advertising agency where we learned a ton of dos and some don’ts. There were project deadlines, happy hours, client proposals and a few sparks flying. One big proposal, but that was years after our good ‘ol ad agency days. We founded Coulee Creative in 2007 and over the last 12 years, we’ve worked closely with clients to help them stand out, building the best damn websites possible.  Running a business together presents its challenges, but the benefits are pretty awesome.

La Crosse Wisconsin

The best kept secret between Chicago and Minneapolis.

We're not in San Francisco, NYC, Seattle or Austin. The cost of living is low, people are friendly and traffic is non-existent. Coulee Creative is nestled in La Crosse, WI, a small city on the Mississippi River with big hills and huge ambitions. Our city is best known for Riverside Park, mountain biking trails, a lively river boating scene and historic downtown which at one point had the most bars per capita in the U.S.
