“Everything has the chance to be interesting. Creativity is finding that chance.”

Mesh Maktal
Managing Director/Creative Director
I’ve worked on brands large and small, across multiple categories and industries. From my experience, the most compelling and persuasive advertising is the right mix of art and craft. The art is finding an insight and spinning it in such a way that moves a consumer toward a brand. The craft is how you serve that insight so a consumer develops a lasting relationship with that brand.
