Creative Director

Ron Rosen

There are people we meet who truly influence the life paths we choose. When Ron Rosen worked as a stock boy in an arts and crafts store, a fellow employee and art student introduced him to advertising at the School of Visual Arts. There he met a teacher, who became a mentor who introduced him to Roy Grace – his first great boss and the most award-winning art director in advertising history,.

Before long, Ron was also winning major advertising awards, like Clio’s and One Show Pencils, and he himself became a recognized name in the industry. At the age of 27, Ron created a print and TV spot for Nikon Cameras that was voted one of the best 60 ads of the 1990′s by the prestigious Advertising One Club.

More jobs and more awards followed Ron through the years. For five years Ron ran the creative department of a New York ad agency whose combined billings were $130 million. Under Ron’s guidance, and for the first time in that agency’s 25-year history, clients won several Effie Awards, which directly linked sales growth to Ron’s creative campaigns. Throughout the years, Ron has successfully created campaigns in categories as diverse as packaged goods, automotive, financial, travel, technology, and food and beverage.
