Meet Moxie Creative

Introducing Moxie Creative

Out with the old, in with the bold. There’s a new squad in town, and they’re ready to kick some serious marketing butt. 

Well, maybe new isn’t the best way to put it. 

Our name is new, but we’re a bit more…seasoned. Several members of our team have been helping businesses grow through big ideas and bold creative for 20 years or more. Clients in Central Minnesota and beyond have turned to us to elevate their brands, redesign websites, and generate new leads for years. We’re passionate about what we do and excited to dig our roots even deeper into the communities we love. 

After a few years of working in-house, our founder, Kelly (Zaske) Cane, began her agency career in 1997. She has shaped brands and built relationships in Central Minnesota as an account manager at Thelen Advertising and, most recently, as co-owner of Gaslight Creative.
