WHO WE ARE
Wax Custom Communications represents premier healthcare clients, delivering marketing communications strategies that build engagement and brand loyalty. We’ve played in the healthcare and financial services industries for 30 years, and have made it our business and passion to bring creativity to two industries that have not always been recognized for it. In the process, we’ve earned more than 1,500 awards – and engaged some very happy clients along the way.
Headquartered in Miami, with West Coast representation in San Diego – we’re a full-service independent shop with an experienced staff of brand and digital marketers, strategists, designers, media specialists and unconventional thinkers who specialize in advertising and marketing for healthcare professionals and organizations within the medical industry. We take the “independent” part seriously because it means we only answer to our clients’ business, and to the culture we’ve built. That independent spirit drives us to “think different” for our clients and for ourselves every day. And that’s something we’re proud of.
We invite you to learn more about us, and to arrange an introductory conversation to learn more about each other directly. Let’s do some unforgettable work together.
