Hailing from sunny California and friendly Minnesota is a full-service agency reinvented for the social age.

As a young, female-founded team based in Silicon Valley, Salty Studios wanted to build a new type of agency. A “non-traditional” agency. No politics, no boys club boardrooms, and no ideas off the table. We’re able to embrace and adapt to technological, social, and economic change.


Driven by strategic design and powerful brand stories, Salty Studios provides end-to-end services from brand strategy, digital design, and content creation to social media management and influencer marketing.

We know what’s trending, what new platforms are being used, and where brands should be investing their marketing dollars. As social media increasingly influences purchasing decisions, it’s time for an agency partner that can help you connect in an authentic way with the social-first generation.
