Our Story

The bombilla Story

bombilla means lightbulb in Spanish. It’s symbolic of the power we all individually and collective have to make our world brighter. Change requires action from all of us. We all have a bombilla within us ready to be #litonpurpose.

In 2018, Founder & CEO Ivellisse Morales leaped out of her career in corporate responsibility to build the mission-driven creative agency of her dreams as a way to respond to the realities of the world. bombilla was born to change the face of purpose-driven business. 

We reimagine the traditional agency model and create economic opportunity by connecting our clients to talented creatives of all backgrounds to deliver inspiration, impact and creative kick-ass work.

Our Founder & CEO

Ivellisse (e-veh-lease) Morales is a curious multi-passionate creative who calls California, Connecticut, Puerto Rico and Boston home. Ivellisse brings a decade of enthusiasm and experience in using marketing as a force for good—for brands of all sizes and from inside major agencies and nonprofits. She comes alive when she connects, collaborates and conspires for the greater good and wholeheartedly believes human creativity will save the planet. It’s why she’s #litonpurpose.
