Executive Creative Director
As the Executive Creative Director of SapientNitro Midwest, John leads creative teams across our Chicago and Minneapolis offices. John joined us in 2012, bringing over 14 years of experience from leading digital agencies.
John is passionate about creating simple, purposeful experiences that connect people to brands. His team is passionate about making fun of his emoji illiteracy (he’s improving, though!) and his odd tendency to call every copywriter “Mary.”
During his time at SapientNitro, John has led work across multiple accounts including: Target, McDonald’s, Chrysler, Harley-Davidson, Allstate, US Bank, and Esurance. He strongly believes the best work comes from close collaboration between our teams and our clients, and pushes for co-creation whenever possible.
