It’s that moment when the brand you’re working on comes alive, when a client makes a sale by answering the phone, not dialing it. That’s what excites me. That’s when I know I have done my job. Having worked in the trenches for years, I bring a sense of creative know-how rarely found in an employee driven agencies.
Experience teaches what works on a website, what helps an ad pull, what makes a brochure get read and what makes a photograph jump off the screen. Experience provides a second level of intuition: ‘Yes, it looks good, but will it work?’ While I have a body of work across many industries, I believe I’ve developed a keen understanding for all consumers. If you have an item you want to market, I will help you sell a lot of them.

Being part of the millennial generation, I have witnessed the exponential growth of companies like Apple, Facebook and Twitter but have also seen failures in the form of product flops like Microsoft Vista and of once popular Digg fall off the face of the earth.
Having grown up in the midst of growing technologies like WordPress and the ever increasing trend towards social media, I help clients choose the right technology and develop long term strategies to successfully deliver the brand message and communication to customers.
Joanne Simonis - Account Director
Industry Experience: 25 years
I’m always talking about cutting the fat. In my 30 years of marketing development, I’ve seen marketing departments add and multiply… but subtraction and division are a rare skill even though new technology, new products and new customers have entered the mix. Throughout my career, I’ve put the emphasis on measurement and integration. In effect, challenging the organizations I work with to “do more with less”.
Since budgets everywhere have gotten tight, the mantra to ‘cut the fat’ has become my calling card. No bloated budgets, unnecessary packaging or one-off specials. Any program I deliver will contain the structure, the bones and the muscle to keep your marketing is at its fighting best.
