that combines passion, expertise, and creative strategic vision to design best-in-class content.
Propeller Communications’ capabilities and experience in digital development, design, video production, animation, account/project services and instructional design allow them to create the highest quality marketing communications.
They are a digital partner to their clients, and technology designer and developer of the Horizon Talent Developer™.
Propeller Communications was founded in 2006 by Charlie Flax to fill a gap in digital content development. What he saw was that traditional agencies lacked core digital capabilities necessary to keep up with the evolving technological field, while digital agencies functioned as production houses instead of truly partnering with their clients. They believed that a true Digital Agency could blend production and partnership, and they set out to do just that.
Propeller creates rich content blended with digital expertise and strategic vision. From the beginning, they knew that it was vital that they be seen as a Partner that helps accomplish the goals of their clients, and not just an agency that executes.
