Bothell-based Create Impulse has announced that Tim Hunter is joining the agency as its chief creative officer.
“We’re thrilled to have Tim join the team and tap into his amazing creativity for our clients,” said President and founder of Create Impulse Corey Newton.
Hunter spent almost three decades in radio, working at KOMO AM-1000 with Larry Nelson and then being the guy in the middle of the Murdock, Hunter and Alice Morning Show on 92.5-KLSY for 17 years. He then transitioned to the agency side where he spent a decade as creative director working with clients including Car Toys, Sono Bello, Listen-Up Canada, Sleep Country Canada, Lynnwood Honda, Super Supplements, The Vitamin Shoppe, Mattress Firm, Sleep America and many others.
Last October, he left his previous post to launch Tim Hunter Creative Services.
“It was a chance for me to enjoy more creative freedom and work on a more personal basis with clients. However, when several larger companies contacted me and wanted to work together, I needed more resources than my one-man shop could offer,” Hunter said.
He joins former colleagues Corey Newton and Cliff Skillings at Create Impulse, where they will utilize their expertise in both traditional and digital media. Create Impulse specializes in demand generation campaigns spanning multi-channel platforms including traditional media, paid search, display, content development, social media and performance optimization.
