Most Creative People

After working in the music industry and doing branding and communications for a children's museum, in 2015 Jess Peterson teamed up with animators Emily Collins and Michaela Olsen to launch Mighty Oak, a creative agency specializing in handmade animation. Using cut paper, custom puppets, and elaborate miniature sets, the company has created stop-motion and 2D-animated commercials for clients including Etsy, Airbnb, Delta Dental, and Netflix. In 2018, the company booked over $1 million in sales, putting it among just 1.7% of women-owned companies to do so. [Photo: courtesy of Mighty Oak]
