Coastside Media Culture
Coastside Media History
Coastside Media (formally Est.Bold) has an interesting history. All our teams and groups we work and create with, have decades of experience, and offer the best marketing available. We are also a woman owned company and believe diversity, sustainability and love can save the planet. We realized years ago that an agency cannot do it all. It is why we have close partnerships with the most talented people around in the marketing arena. Our group originally formed to serve the budding California legalized cannabis market 4 years ago. Our team was excited to tackle the needs of a challenging market and we wanted to engage with the true nature of cannabis. So off we went to explore the history, grit, and wonderful world of cannabis. Our journey took us all over Northern California in search of the original back-to-the-landers and our hearts settled in Southern Humboldt, where roots and generations of family farms have been there from the start. We created an agency focused on cannabis and a place where we could dig in and educate and share our marketing knowledge. Well, it worked very well for our team thanks to the amazing people of the region in the Emerald Triangle. During the Covid era, we were forced to re-group, and we wanted to help more small and medium businesses go from “survive” to “thrive” as we all rebuild from the pandemic. Our group is a resilient bunch and the best around. We modeled our new agency around the freedom and beauty that is only found on the Coastside. Every coastside is beautiful. We live for the sun, sand and water. It is where our spirits soar, and our creative energy is inspired by our surroundings. There is a natural flow to what we do here. We are excited to meet new friends and family who share the same vision and dreams. We look forward to protecting your investment as a business owner and stand fully committed to delivering on the promise of being “The Difference in Marketing”.

Coastside Media Vision
Coastside Media is more than just another full-service marketing agency. We are a group of like-minded creator’s, developers, analyzers, and free-spirited individuals who celebrate the lifestyle uniquely found on the Golden Coast of California. Our vison was founded on the fundamentals of our lifestyle in our DNA. The freedom and pioneering spirt to dream big and encourage a person or brand to find their voice through technology and brilliant ideas. We strive to create an environment that encourages and embraces change. We build teams and communities to make a difference and provide an special place where challenges are looked at as opportunities, to reach positive outcomes in all we create and develop. The West has always been a special place for music, arts, social change, technology, and creativity. All of this happens in a home we call the Coastside. To quote a famous Californian, “Beware the lollipop of mediocrity; lick it once and you’ll suck forever.”-Brian Wilson.
The Coastline is as diverse as the people who call it home. The spirit of pioneers who settled in the Giant Redwoods and the farmers who stood firm to legalize cannabis (first for medical and now recreational) in Northern California. The vison and development of the architectural iconic span we call the Golden Gate Bridge. The contribution along the coast to the surfing and skateboarding worlds. If you have never seen Mavericks (in Half Moon Bay), you have not lived. The men and women who ride the “giants” leave nothing behind and are a shining example of the boldness found in the people who embody the coastal living in California. Of course we can’t forget the contribution to the arts and music. The “flower power” generation trippin’ through the world of the Grateful Dead and the echoes of the canyon in So. Cal and the urban contributions from Oakland and L.A. California embraces the fundamental freedom of voice and drive to make a difference in the world and shine the light on diversity and the protection of our environment. The Coastside is loaded with innovation fueled by the natural beauty of the living sea and blue skies which are so prevalent for dreaming Big!
Coastside Media is proud to have the DNA that makes the Coastside so special.
