What We Do
- CORE TWELVE IS A CREATIVE AGENCY THAT HAS BEEN DEVELOPING BRANDS AND NARRATIVE-DRIVEN MARKETING CAMPAIGNS WITH BIG IDEAS AT THEIR CORE FOR OVER TWENTY YEARS.
We develop and execute the full spectrum of creative content, all of which springs from carefully considered ideas and compelling storytelling. Our holistic marketing approach synchronizes efforts on all fronts, ensuring continuity of brand and messaging—in all communications, in every medium.
Core Twelve is operated by an unlikely partnership that consistently outperforms client expectations and takes pride in fostering a thriving employee culture. While a consultant would tell you that creativity and banking don’t mix, we disagree.

CEOTom was in the financial services industry for 28 years prior to co-founding Core Twelve with Dan in 1998. Tom has an MBA from Columbia University and worked in New York, London and Chicago for Brown Brothers Harriman, Merrill Lynch, Barclays Bank and ABN-Amro. He finds running a boutique creative agency more challenging than a multi-national financial institution but hasn’t looked back.
President / Chief Creative OfficerDan has 25 years of experience as a multi-media designer and creative director. Since founding Core Twelve in 1998, he has cultivated a long and diversified list of clients ranging from start-ups to multi-platinum artists and automotive giants. He relentlessly pursues the big idea and is thankful for the talented team that helps him turn sometimes far-fetched visions into reality.
COO / Director of AccountsJustin started out as a Deloitte CPA, but succumbed to one of our earliest marketing campaigns when he joined the agency in 2001. Working together, Justin and Dan strike the right balance of creativity and logic. Justin makes sure no corner is left unturned, deadlines are met, and objectives are achieved. We’re pretty certain this isn’t what he imagined when he got his accounting degree.
