self-portrait 2017 smallAlan Cox has been intrigued by and immersed in creative communications since early childhood.

From word puzzles, books and music to photography, animation and computers, he’s always been fascinated by the power of creative mediums to elicit inspiration, express emotions and influence behaviors.

After earning a bacherlor’s degree in radio and TV, Alan launched his marketing and advertising career in the creative department of Pacific/West Communications Group, a Los Angeles-based ad agency,where he honed and developed copywriting, graphic design and print buying skills. After working two years on such major accounts as Waste Management of North America, LAX International Airport and The Cities of Los Angeles, Long Beach and Redondo Beach, he accepted a new position at one of the nation’s largest nonprofit organizations, heading up an in-house creative team of writers, designers and print buyers. There he developed a strong grasp of budget stretching, targeted marketing and creative team management.

Five years later, with the skills and relationships developed in the creative director role, he launched Cox Creative, a team-based virtual agency dedicated to providing innovative value and strategic creative excellence. Cox Creative’s broad range of services includes copywriting, video and radio production, print and outdoor campaigns, corporate identity packages, professional photography, product development and packaging, collateral tools, strategic consulting, special events, concert promotion and more.

The group’s dynamic work has been recognized with the awarding of numerous Impact, Addy and Telly awards. “Look Before You Leap,” an original 40-minute 3-screen film Cox conceptualized,wrote and produced,was the recipient of 5 Telly Awards alone.

He is the author of two published books and an original line of greeting cards. He’s also an overly enthusiasctic audiophile, a passionate parent of two tireless boys and a long-time lover of America’s favorite past time—baseball—which as it turns out is every bit as much fun for him to coach as it is to watch.
