SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA (November 1, 2018) – Just Media, Inc., an innovative global digital marketing services agency, is excited to announce the launch of a new content creation hub focused on aligning content with media to boost performance. Daniel Lorenze has joined the agency of Head of Content Creation, partnered with Elizabeth Dawson as Creative Director, to establish this new service in-house. Both are highly awarded, lauded by their clients and have the added benefit of working together at other agencies for the past eight years.
This content creation hub will be fueled by a dedicated creative team that will leverage technology to deliver quick turnaround, high quality, low cost creative content. This fresh approach to generating creative content aims to be more flexible, nimble, and effective, without compromising quality.

By using data and audience intelligence to align creative content with media, we can ultimately provide better-performing solutions for our clients.”
