Lynchpin Creative is a versatile creative collaborator for your business, campaign, or marketing needs. Founded in 2006, Lynchpin was winning awards for its short films by 2008 and not long after was helping develop cities, places, and ideas through comprehensive digital storytelling. The company is HQ’d in Fort Wayne, Indiana, but works with clients in from Los Angeles to Chicago and throughout the Midwest. We started with film and video production and have evolved into storytelling across multiple mediums and industries.
Lynchpin has produced successful marketing plans with six-figure returns, partnered with motion picture and television studios on projects large and small, fashioned catalytic economic development projects, rejuvenated non-profit and institutional programming, and consulted on outreach, creative direction, and community engagement efforts. We don’t do it all, but we do what matters most.
We are young guns firing down the sights in a world so full of potential it keeps us up nights. We love hard work, intimate sets, old school methods, Coke served in bottles, catchy paragraphs, and most importantly, letting the work speak for itself.
We are the Lynchpins.
