Hey, I'm Angela.
As a Brooklyn based ACD/Art Director, I believe every brand has its own inner magic. Whether it's an unexpected execution within an emerging platform or a platform hack that keeps viewers' attention, I believe in creating work that transcends the spirit of brands beyond board rooms to resonate with audiences in the mystical digital and social realms. Some say it's supernatural. I call it social media.
Starting early in my career, I've been a very passionate early adopter of new social platforms (my latest obsession being TikTok). I had a vision for the impact social media would have on the world of Advertising. In 2014 I moved to New York City in search of agencies with like-minded ideas and found a home with some of the most innovative social advertisers and strategists.
During my 10+ years as a creative, I have worked for clients big and small in a range of environments pushing new ideas forward—from a small midwest boutique design shop like Funnel Design Group to social media advertising pioneers like 247 Laundry Service, Likeable Media, and Annex 88 + Havas.
Some of the amazing people I have worked with along the way:
European Wax Center, Keurig, LG Mobile, NARS Cosmetics, Nickelodeon, Stop & Shop, Freixenet, Oprah Winfrey Network, Kiss Cosmetics, Amazon, Avon, Covergirl, Gerolsteiner, and Oklahoma Science Museum.
