Feed Me Creative Logo


Feed Me Creative is a full-service culinary creative and marketing agency based in Kansas City, Missouri. We build great looking, high functioning websites, create enduring brand identities, and do a bunch of other really important marketing stuff.


We specialize in recipe development, food styling, and photography for restaurants, bars, and food brands, but we'll work with anyone hungry for more business.


You're probably wondering who "we" are, huh?


We are Jeff Akin and Emily Farris and we love food. We love food so much that when we started working together in the creative department of a nonprofit, we constantly found ourselves talking to each other about it and writing to each other about it.


In 2012, we launched feed me kc, a Kansas City food blog with recipes, dining diaries, and a fair share of ridiculousness. A year later, we quit our day jobs to try to make a living combining what we love (food) with what we do well (branding, marketing, design, and content development).



Jeff is a culinary-school dropout with a Masters degree in marketing. He worked as a line cook before his totally rational fear of falling headfirst into a deep fryer forced him from the kitchen and into an office. But his cube was kind of a bummer, so now he works in a culinary studio, developing recipes and taking photographs for national food brands and publications. (And he has a special helmet he wears on frying days.) Read more.
