ABOUT US

ABOUT US

At Chrome City, we understand the millennial need to connect to the culture they so deeply crave. And it’s that keen perceptiveness, led by our CEO, Alexandria Ott, that makes us really good at curating people, places and things in order to build unforgettable moments for brands. Chrome City is a creative catalyst for businesses to connect with like-minded brands and audiences. 

CONNECT. CREATE.

COMMUNICATE. CULTIVATE.

Content is everything. We take an organic approach to cultivating engaging content for outreach, and custom-­tailor every program—from branding + social media to marketing + more—to meet the desired goals of our clients.

 

We are the weavers of culturally progressive activations and experiences that allow curious consumers to interact with your products and services—and the creatives behind them—in a way that makes them stop, think, connect, feel and, most importantly, remember. The result? A sense of loyalty to the experience they are, well, experiencing.
