Agency

ART DIRECTOR

Fully integrated solutions to address scopes from PR and marketing clients.

These are integrated pieces of business where the public relations teams, brand teams, social, sit together.

Every idea that strives in culture right now needs to be earned first. It needs to earn the attention of media, to earn the attention of stakeholders and influencers as opposed to pay its way into culture. That’s why we’re shifting in the world and it’s not so much a paid first model anymore.

As a design thinker and art director I am responsible for leading identifying earned first creative.

We do everything together still. You’ll have account + strategy and all of it works. We get the brief together, we write it together, we collaborate creative and PR teams go off on and ideate. We then come back together to share out where we are see how we can build on each others ideas, so we are all arriving at something everyone feels good about and that we can all make successful. It’s not just coming from one side or the other. 

It’s all about the kind of work that is gaining everyone’s respect and trust.

Supporting the leadership team at Ogilvy which is a very diverse community with many seats at the table coming from a creative discipline.

I have been bringing creative team ideas to life that PR teams can be proud of.

We specialize in purposeful branding, coming from purpose, making brands matter.
