Coloma-Blaszyk, Frank, Wagner, Martinez Launch The A Team: A Creative (Co)Lab
- HOLLYWOOD, Fla.
Award-winning creatives Nikki Coloma-Blaszyk, Ben Frank, Marni Wagner and Luis Martinez have come together to launch The A Team: a creative (co)lab, a full-scale agency serving television networks, streamers and consumer brands.
These four partners previously worked together for over a decade at 2C Creative where the team earned industry accolades from Clio, Promax and other competitions for their projects serving such clients as Hulu, CNN, ABC, NatGeo and the NFL Network, among many others.
Coloma-Blaszyk draws on her extensive background in operations to lead the business enterprise while Frank, Wagner and Martinez lead the creative side of their company. The A Team offers wide-ranging capabilities from conceptual prowess to prolific writing, top-tier editorial to innovative design.
The foundation for the new venture is rooted in the founding partners’ motto: “Here, there is no B team,” meaning that from concept to completion, the agency’s clients will work with the top-level team of creatives in order to not only produce premium work but also to ensure the entire client experience is unparalleled.
“While many agencies are capable of producing great work, we recognized an opportunity in our industry to improve the process for clients...making it more simple and streamlined,” explained Coloma-Blaszyk. “So we’ve developed a way to allow the entire client/agency dynamic to be a true collaboration.”
Chris Sloan, owner/president of 2C Creative, said of his former colleagues who have now started up The A Team, “One of the most rewarding things in my career is seeing people who’ve worked for me flourish. Nikki, Ben, Marni and Luis have always done incredible work, so I know they’ll be successful. I look forward to watching them grow and will be cheering them on along the way.”
