Creative Director

Michael Fazende

Freelance Creative Director/AD, recently with Ogilvy & Mather/Chicago.

Hands-on designer, art director, writer with online and offline expertise.

Strong track record in new business. The past 5+ years at Ogilvy worked on successful pitches for Samsung KNOX, Cisco Networks, Bitcoin Blockchain, BAE Systems Cyber Security, Chubb Insurance, Synchrony Financial, Cintas, Grainger, The CFA Institute and Zebra Technologies.

Creative Director at Ogilvy on all of the above plus UPS and Shout.

Over the years, created and supervised campaigns in just about every product or service category. Cars, Financial Services, Apparel, Food and Beverage, Insurance, New Technologies, Cyber Security, Packaged Goods, Hospitality and Healthcare.

Everything from Mercedes-Benz to The Milwaukee Police Department.

Cut my teeth at Fallon, McElligott in Minneapolis and lucky to have worked at notable agencies such as Goodby, Silverstein, DDB, The Richards Group, Publicis, Cramer-Krasselt as well as O&M.

I have boxes full of awards in the garage somewhere. Cannes Lions, One Show Pencils, Clios, Addys, Webbys, Art Director’s Club Awards, Best of Show and Effies. Gold ones, silver ones, bronze ones…plastic ones. Statues, plaques, certificates. Even a “Golden Backscratcher” from a director who wanted to show his appreciation for all the work we sent his way.

Basically, I love making stuff. And love to help others make stuff. Mentoring is of huge importance to me. As is craft.

Would love the opportunity to make stuff for you.

Thanks for your time.
