Coltrane Curtis on What Really Makes a Creator Influential

Coltrane Curtis tracks down talent who would be left largely unfazed if social media suddenly ceased to exist. 

The founder and managing partner started his influencer marketing career well before the term was widely recognized. Since launching the full-service creative agency Team Epiphany in 2005, Curtis hasn’t let the industry’s fixation on follower counts and content clicks derail him from its original mission: identify people who impact culture both on and offline.

Instead of limiting itself to a roster of clients, Team Epiphany befriends diverse creator communities and connects them with brands.
