We’re no-bullshit thinkers, strong-willed marketers, and visionary designers who seek collaboration, thoughtful conversation, and opportunity to create art that moves people into action. Passion, fire, vision—these are just a few of the qualities that this black-owned, women-run team brings to the table.

We’re not the agency you bring home to meet your mom; we’re about busting through the constant noise of cookie-cutter campaigns and pushing your brand to the edge. We are content creatives to our core, collaborators, rule breakers—never confined, yet always defined.

Kate Knox, Creative Project Manager
Kate is responsible for developing and implementing digital marketing strategy campaigns. She’s also responsible for getting the job done, which involves the creation, organization, execution and completion of projects. As the main point of contact for clients, Kate is the one that will be blowing up your email with communication. As our workflow wonder woman, she delegates projects to our internal team to ensure everyone stays on track and on budget. On occasion, she still dabbles with a dSLR camera to grab some behind the scenes or social media content. Unlike the usual creatives, Kate strives on organization and not procrastination! She brings close to fifteen years of industry experience to LUMI Marketing & Creative.
