we're post modern marketing.
Founded in 2010, Post Modern Marketing is a Sacramento based company with a single goal: To help businesses – both those here in Sacramento (and now San Diego too!), and those located throughout the United States and abroad – grow and improve their bottom lines.
In 2016, we expanded our offerings by merging with another web development and marketing company, Creative California. Under the leadership of Josh Rubin, Post Modern Marketing now has the most knowledgeable web development and marketing team in Northern California, drawing on the strengths of a stable team of designers, web developers, writers, and experienced marketing professionals to provide the best possible service to our clients.
Owner and CEO
Josh Rubin grew up in Southern California, and first discovered an interest in web design when he built his first website in the mid-1990s, and began his Internet marketing career in 2003 as a graphic designer and web developer. He developed an expertise in SEO, web development, and overall marketing strategy, and has run marketing campaigns for both startups and established national companies. In 2009 he launched his own SEO and web design company, Creative California, and in 2016 merged his company with Post Modern Marketing and subsequently became the owner and CEO. In his free time, he volunteers with Sacramento’s SCORE, suffers through one terrible 49ers season after another, and explores Sacramento’s countless brunch offerings.

John Nesler provides Post Modern Marketing’s clients with the written content they need to put their best marketing foot forward, but wears a lot of hats around the PMM office, serving as inter- and intra-office editor, background researcher and pinch-hit developer.
