Thirteen years at W+K is a lot of Nike work. Here's some favorites. There's more. There is always more.

VISA commercial solutions

So, there’s an 80 trillion dollar addressable market for Visa in companies that use paper checks and wire transfers. However, Visa is known as a credit card company – it’s an upstream conversation to talk to CFO’s about payment systems. But what if that relationship changed, and the perceptions of Visa changed? We advertised directly to CFO’s and set up a private group for CFO’s through Bloomberg to change the conversation.

THE STANDARD

The Standard. This is what happens when a brand, allergic to definition, must define itself for investors. Like a skittish wild animal. From agency Point One Percent

RUSSELL INVESTMENTS

 famous in their day

Liz Claiborne foundation

Two years after making this film for the Liz Claiborne Foundation a father tracked me down. I had moved on so it must've taken some effort to find me. But he did. He told me that I had saved his daughter's life. I have done more expensive work, more visible work, more awarded work. But I have never done more effective work.

Sanibel sea school

This is Sanibel Sea School. It's a fundraising dinner party film - purposefully languid. It will give you a sense of an institution I am tremendously proud to have co-founded.  Shot by Mark Meyers.

There's always more. Particularly the work that I had the honor of creative directing - the Nike Olympic work with John Jay "You don't win silver. You lose gold." The Westin and Sheraton work with Florence Buchanan. The Alta Vista work that won so many awards for a brand that is no more. Coke in Pakistan and India. Nike in Japan.  Crazy obscure cool work for electronic trading algorithms shot by a rock 'n roll photographer and work targeted to hospital blood bankers shot by a fashion photographer. But we'll just have to have a conversation or even better, let's talk about the work that comes next.
