ABOUT ME

Before becoming an Art Director, I for sure thought I was either going to entertain as the next Britney Spears (pre-shaved head), or kick ass like Mia Hamm for Women’s Soccer. In this business, I’d like to think I’m still kicking ass and entertaining just in a more professional way. So, I think it’s working out just as I planned.

I was proudly born and raised in New Jersey. I love pizza, my 130lb lab, and craft beer. I studied at The University of the Arts (Philly) and the School of Visual Arts (NYC). My BA degree is in Advertising, which is cool because I work in Advertising. Being creative is the best job on Earth and I’m blessed to share that with you.

ART DIRECTION.

I’m currently an Integrated Art Director for Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide in New York City.  I primarily work on the Tide account.

CREATIVE.

In college, I dabbled in everything and anything. I have experience in: web design, photography, typography, programming, graphic design, public speaking, marketing, social media, music, etc.

SKILLS

ART DIRECTION

ART DIRECTION

I creatively express my silly, bizarre ideas to my copywriter and together we make cool shit for advertising.

DESIGN

DESIGN

Growing up, I always wanted to design for music companies. For the past 10 years, I've been freelancing on album artwork and design for musicians. For me, it's an awesome way to really take creative chances on projects.

PHOTOGRAPHY

PHOTOGRAPHY

When I applied to college, I actually got accepted into the Photography program at SVA. I'm really happy I took the other road towards Advertising because I never wanted to abuse Photography professionally. I knew it was special to me and I wanted to protect it.

WEB

WEB

I love web design. When MySpace was the big social platform I would "view source" and copy the code and rip it apart to customize my own themes. I taught myself basic programming from that; I know, super nerdy. I always cared about design early on, even if it started on MySpace pages.

SOCIAL MEDIA

SOCIAL MEDIA

I am social. Let's connect. @kimberlymariah
