About us.

Established in 2008, Creative Culture Media is run by the husband-wife team of Jonathan and Heidi Kratzke. We provide professional communication services, including design, printed materials, customized content, and web development.

We specialize in working with rural electric cooperatives-partnering with communications teams to design and write original content for monthly newsletters, annual reports, and marketing materials. With an intimate knowledge of the utility industry, we also offer marketing and social media consulting services to help co-ops effectively reach and engage their membership.

Creative Culture Media is based in Ottertail, Minnesota. Both Jonathan and Heidi value excellence in design and content, strong work ethic, and long-term relationships with their clients.
