John, Ben and Katie go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to executing on our month over month strategy.
Good Vibe CBD,
We have chosen PufCreativ to handle our website design and hosting and have been very satisfied. I met John at an MJ Biz Con show a couple of years ago and admired his hustle in addition to the quality of the work of his team. We have been dealing with Ben on the design side of things and honestly we are amazed at his abilities. We look forward to giving them more projects to tackle for us!

We wouldn’t be where we are today without them. Most importantly, they are great people who love to help in anyway they can.
Los Sueños Farm,
It is always a great experience when working with PufCreativ. John, Shamus and the crew are first class individuals, prompt communicators and creative masterminds. Shamus did a stellar job putting together some video footage for our cultivation, I would recommend to anyone.
John, Amber and the rest of the PufCreative team did an incredible job integrating into our organization at a critical time. They have done an amazing job managing deadlines, working with the rest of our marketing team, and effectively launching social media campaigns for all three of our brands. They have exceeded all of our expectations and I can’t recommend them enough!
Working with PufCreativ has been nothing short of fantastic! The team is professional, forward thinking and leaves no detail untouched. John’s innovative ideas and unparalleled passion bring a fresh perspective to branding and marketing that gets your brand noticed. Plus their visual designs are always swoon worthy!
Shamus and Katie quickly gained an understanding of our business, our strategy and our philosophy. They have shaped our social media presence to match the image we want to create for the Xanthic brand and have laid the foundation for significant brand presence. I can rely on John and his team to provide good advice and to act quickly when we’ve made a decision.
