STEFANI COTTRILL / Creative Direction + Design

RESUME

Banner_Resume22.jpg

Throughout 13 years, I've gone from Interactive AD at an up-and-coming digital shop to making my rounds at almost every NYC agency, even globetrotting to Ogilvy Singapore, and now as Creative Director leading teams and developing relevant content/campaigns for renowned brands. With finely-tuned design aesthetics, fresh thinking, and conceptual skills I've built a reputation for delivering time and time again. No matter the project — from regional to global, rebranding to new business, digital specific to 360 campaigns — No matter the category — from beauty to CPG, electronics to hospitality, liquor to entertainment — I use my talents, experience and strong collaboration skills to develop envelope pushing creative for clients and agencies. Continually striving for nothing less than the best, I'd make an ideal asset to any team looking for high quality creatives. / Download and save my Resume.
