TPG Architecture, New York, NY, Associate Creative Director
Progressed through three roles within two years, handling different aspects of Business Development, Marketing, Communications, and Branding. Beginning as a Marketing & Communications Specialist, I served as project manager in the concepting and execution of RPF responses, qualification packages, and new business presentations. In concert with the Director of Marketing, I also coordinated project photography; assisted in planning various events; wrote ads, award submissions, and press releases; and strategized content creation and deployment across multiple channels.
After a year I was promoted to a newly-created Creative Strategist role involved in the concept design and execution of TPG Architecture’s own brand refresh while still shouldering my duties as a Marketing & Communications Specialist. In my new role I was responsible for the creation of an updated logo and identity, brand messaging, and the redesign of all related Marketing materials including Proposals and New Business Presentations. I pioneered the use of video as a medium for presenting content and conceived an ongoing Design Dialogues video series along with a host of other video projects.
I was promoted from the Creative Strategist role to my current role as the Associate Creative Director of Copy and Video Projects to lead the development of a consistent brand voice and standards for style and tone. I oversee the creation of multi-channel written and visual content that expresses the firm’s story.
