We are Creative People

Get Started Today

We believe the market is shifting: clients are looking to build best-in-class internal teams, and candidates want more of an understanding of a company’s strategy and vision.

Creative People have a very clear proposition; we help dynamic and growing brands build their internal design, product and marketing teams.

“Being a creative isn’t easy… finding great creative talent that fits your brand is just as hard!”

Our job is to find candidates who don’t just apply to an advert. Our job is to add value outside the normal methods of an in-house recruitment team. We actively search and identify talent that will fit your brand, aligning both skills and culture.

Their industry knowledge paired with their analytical ability to deliver quality candidates makes them an excellent talent partner. I hope to have the opportunity to work with Creative People again in the future."

"Carli is my favorite! I was managing a design team at LinkedIn when Carli got in touch. I had an itch to dive back into the startup world, but wasn’t finding the right opportunities on my own. Carli got in touch, got to know me personally, and connected me with my dream job - Head of Design with Jumpstart. I love the team, the product, and the mission of company; and never would have been where I am now without Carli’s help. Carli also advised on conversations surrounding compensation, negotiations, and messaging my next play to the team I was with. The relationship and dynamic Carli fostered made me feel so comfortable, valued, and considered. Dinner is on me next time Carli is SF. Thank you, Carli!"
Head of Design, Jumpstart
"Ellen has set a very high bar to what I think all recruiters should be. Before working with her, I never knew that a recruiter could be so personable, transparent, very communicative, positive, and fun to work with. Ellen impressed me with how much she knew about designers and my industry, which makes her the perfect person to help match designers to the right gigs. She walked me through every step of the process and even met with me a couple times for coffee. She believed in what I could bring to the table and was also genuinely excited for me. In the end, Ellen felt more like a friend who wanted the best for me than just a recruiter. I highly recommend her if you need some assistance finding opportunities that are just right for you!"
Senior Designer, Trade Coffee
"Creative People placed me in my dream role. They saw exactly what I was looking for and where I would be an amazing fit and everything fell into place. It was such a pleasure working with them! I've never worked with recruiters who were just as excited as I was throughout the entire process. You won't be disappointed working with Creative People!"
Graphic Designer, Los Angeles
"Daniel is the best Design recruiter in New York City. I've worked with him both as a candidate and hiring manager. Why is he so good? He matches opportunities and candidates thoughtfully, deeply understanding nuances in experiences and skills. A Product Designer is not the same as a Graphic Designer, in-house is not the same as agency, and enterprise is not the same as consumer. Many recruiters don't know this, believe it or not. Daniel does."
Head of Design, Tend
"Creative People are amazing recruiters. They kept me updated during the job process of interviewing and gave me great tips! Based on my experience, they genuinely care about each job seeker, and are great at their job! Creative People are not like most staffing agencies - they find opportunities for each individual that’s a good fit."
Freelance Graphic Designer, New York
“I've never worked with a recruiter before working with Creative People but I can tell that they are one of the best. They went above and beyond, even jumping on the phone after work hours to talk me through a ton of questions I had about transitioning into my new gig. My recruiter was very sweet, professional and good at what they do. Totally recommend working with Creative People for finding your next creative job!”
Creative Director, San Francisco
"I am a creative in the start-up world and have worked with many recruiters in New York. Ellen was by far the most professional and helpful recruiter I have worked with, making the search for my next career move seamless and thoughtful. Ellen was like a personal advocate for me and checked-in regularly throughout the process, easing some of the normal awkwardness of job searches and interviews. She listened to every concern, excitement, and confusion of mine and really took the time to help in any way she could. Ellen found me a position at a wonderful company that I am proud to be a part of and I am extremely grateful for her advocacy, thoughtfulness, and talent."
Senior Designer, Maven Clinic
"Creative People are a delight to work with. They listened to what I was looking for in the next steps of my career and only presented opportunities that knew fit that criteria—without bias or pressure. The process was informative and most importantly, painless. I would certainly work with Creative People again if the opportunity was presented."
Head of Design, Perch

    Allie, coming from Compass Real Estate and the National Sales organization at Yelp, joined the team after having spent many years working in sales. She knew she had a passion for helping people and a love for disruptive brands. Allie heads up our Marketing Team!

    Fun Fact

    Allie is so competitive she bet Dan (our CEO) $200 that she could beat him in a running race. So confident, 100% belief in her own ability to never lose anything.....A few stretches & 50 yards later, she lost.....badly!

    Senior Creative Agent, Marketing Desk

    Matt comes from a Product Development background at major fashion companies and will be creating an amazing network within the Fashion/E-comm & Beauty space

    Fun Fact

    Matt struggled to give us a fun fact, then we started to get to know him better......he jumped out of a helicopter which coincided with him skiing, which is apparently called "HeliSkiing", he was in Gossip Girl once, and his inspirations in life are Snoop Dog & Martha Stewart. Moral of the story is, Matt is weird and wonderful.

    Fun Fact

    Emma has a talent that literally no one else in the world has - she can tell if someone can sing well just by staring at them for 5 seconds. The fact that Simon Cowell has made a living from listening to people sing is nothing on Emma........in her words she's a "musical savant."
