Cacha` and Pen
We are the Co-Founders of 8515 (formerly The Network). We created 8515 because we wanted a business that was unlike any other. The day we met is the same day we started our business. We instantly clicked!
We sipped tea, ate some food and came up with the whole concept of the business. We shared the same ideas on how we wanted to completely change the game. We were tired of seeing no diversity in advertising or marketing campaigns that were based on stereotypes and not realities. We also wanted to help emerging artists by providing management, PR, and marketing.
In November of 2010, we decided to start an agency that would provide marketing, PR, and management for artists and brands. When we started we had no idea what we were doing. Take our first photo shoot for example, it went terribly and we only shot 6 of the 15 dresses we pulled. The shoot ended in a major fight between us which almost ended the business #realtalk.
And what about our trip to Uzbekistan? Ever heard of Uzbekistan?! It’s in Central Asia. We flew out there for 24 hours just to cover an event called the M&TVA Awards. Yes, you read that right, we took a 17 hour flight just to be in Tashkent, Uzbekistan for the M&TVA Awards. Now that’s what you call dedication to a client, lol!
As Co-Founders of 8515, we’re business partners who collaborate to execute projects and campaigns. We have a diverse portfolio of work, we’ve planned events, provided creative direction and styling, launched marketing campaigns, and much more.
We are a unique duo, we’re educated, funny, intelligent, crazy, and so passionate about what we do. We fight, we debate, and we are constantly coming up with ideas. We’re on a serious mission to change it all. Our mission is to bring El Sabor.
