We do a few things & we do them very well.
Lean Mean Creative Machine
creating impact through high caliber design, web and digital.
Hey there, we're Lean Mean Creative Machine — a creative agency based in Los Angeles, California. We help brands build more trust and authority with their audience using high caliber graphic design, websites and marketing collateral.
We believe that great, strategic design will elicit an emotional connection with your audience that drives them to stay engaged and take action with your brand.
We do a few things, and we do them very well.
As a lean, agile team, we believe in choosing a few things that we're great at, and doing them exceptionally well.
The anatomy of a project
What it looks like to partner with us...
We’ve done this for long enough to know that process is everything. With a great process, we can be efficient, effective, and almost guarantee a successful project outcome. We have honed and refined a very specific process over the years that has led to hundreds of successful projects, here’s a brief overview of how it works.

Meet Our team
What you see is what you get
Unlike bigger agencies, there will be no dishing you off to junior staff once we land the gig. We keep our client roster small and prioritize long term relationships. This means that if we’re taking you on as a client, you are very important to us.
What sets us apart
As a small team, we value quality, not volume. Our business is built on word of mouth and repeat projects, so an unhappy client is absolutely detrimental to our success. In fact, 50% of our clients have been with us since year one.
What does this mean for you? Simple, we’re going to do everything in our power to make sure you’re happy. No nickle-and-diming for small revisions, no hidden costs, no ignored emails. We’re in it for the long haul and we’ll do everything we can to make sure we have a lasting partnership between our companies.
Agility and flexibility is one of our greatest assets. Brands come to us when they’re tired of paying for the overhead that accompanies many larger agencies (after all, who do you think is paying for that pool table in their office?) We’re designed to be flexible so you can scale our services up and down as needed.
There are plenty of agencies out there that can make you a pretty logo or a fancy website. What sets us apart is that our design is rooted in strategy. What are your goals? Who is your customer? What problems are we solving?
Every design decision is informed by the the answer to those questions. That’s why each of our projects begins with a deep dive discovery process. Because our job is not to build you something pretty, but to build you something that drives results.
Are we experts in our field? Absolutely. But so are you. We don’t believe in the “my way or the highway” approach that many agencies are taking these days. After all, nobody knows your business better than you. The real magic happens when we can bring both our expertise to the table in a collaborative partnership.
