Bowling Green, KY Advertising and Website Design Agency.

Hangout Creative was founded in 2012 by two WKU Gordon Ford College of Business graduates, Joel Nivens and Blake Blackburn. Hangout started as a social media marketing agency helping promote local Bowling Green businesses on popular platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

There was an immediate demand for social media services in the Southern Kentucky area. Both partners were able to resign from their day-time jobs and focus fully on the growth of the business. As a digital agency there were requests for complementary services like website design, graphic design and photography. These opportunities required a bit more expertise than the partners were familiar with at the time. Cody Turner signed on as Hangout Creative’s third partner in 2015 to enhance these skill sets.

Flash forward to 2020, Hangout Creative is now considered a full service advertising agency. We have built successful campaigns for small businesses in several industries including medical, food service, fitness, real estate and more.
