Creative Director-Copy; Brand Strategist

Share profile

I have been writing and directing design for decades (33 years): for some of the large corporations, for ad agencies and freelance as a consultant.

Energetic portfolio shows it all: ABOUT: 30+ years of intelligent, to-the-heart message-making and creative direction for spot-on engagement with audiences across platforms. 10+ years Financial Services experience as VP + Director (retail banking, investment management); 10+ years Nonprofit, High Tech and Healthcare. Sharp marketing communications strategies for big brands as well as small business. I am on Facebook as MINGO, a branding consultancy. I make it fun with fast-forward thinking and analytical skills to get to core truths, then I translate them effectively and accurately. Voice. Impact. Right channel, right message. Staying power.

"In some ways, the Internet has upped the ante on the need to just spit it out, honestly and creatively."

I have worked freelance on projects throughout the U.S. I recently left a Creative Director position with a strategy, brand, design firm in Maine that specializes in nonprofits. I am available for projects or full-time work and all I care about is finding a team that wants to create campaigns that are smart and succinct about standing out. We'll start with packaging your strong points. We'll arrive at words that work hard, up and down the media chain, and consistently project your brand personality in ways that make things happen. We will create communications that blow people away for their design and depth.

I also actively support social media (FB, Instagram, e-blasts) for clients. Sample:

Sampling of clients: Fidelity Investments, AT&T, Compaq, IBM, Lotus, JPMorgan, Motorola, State of Maine tourism, New Mexico + Maine, tourism, healthcare.

I live in Deer Isle, Maine and travel as far as the west coast for meetings and projects.
