Who We Are

Opened in 2001 by Louis Cardenas, Blonde Creative is a boutique advertising, multimedia and social media agency that turns things upside down by creating visionary work for their clients. “Blonde” for short, named because they have fun of course, started with the determination to make their clients’ wishes come true, and grew up to be an award winning agency with a multifaceted team. 
Our clients range from start-ups and non-profits to Fortune 500 companies, all which receive the same personal attention we are known for. The “Blondes” have more than 30 years of combined experience (we pretty much refer to them as super powers) that has allowed us to grow with our clients, build long lasting relationships and gain new business through referrals. We do all this while staying true to who we are – a group of grown up kids (let loose at a fun factory) that love what we do.

I’ve always enjoyed the creative side of life, but my motto shows my competitiveness…”keep up or get out of the way”. louis has worked with clients from small start ups to international accounts.

“What I do is who I am.” I get into the mind of the client and consumer, extracting the motivation and passion. Then the blonde team expands on the theme, and before you know it we’ve created a great campaign to get inside the consumer’s head.

Blonde Fact: Louis loves to shop, is constantly trying to improve and is NOT recovering from a severe shoe fetish.
