Key Accomplishments

Hello, I'm Steve.

My advertising career began in the most cliché way possible – working in the mailroom. Since then, I've created noteworthy campaigns for brands like Volkswagen, Domino’s Pizza, Best Buy, Applebee’s, Guitar Hero, Kraft, Amex, JCPenney, Samsung, Lemonhead and more. In addition to raising a small family and touring the country in a rock band, I've held creative positions ranging from Copywriter to Partner/Executive Creative Director at EURO RSCG, Struck, Crispin Porter + Bogusky and EVB. My name's been included in several industry lists like, “Forbes’ 30 Most Creative People in Social Media” and “XYZ’s Top 25 Young Creative Professionals.” Today I bring a unique perspective to the business. My media agnostic approach always puts the solution first and considers every possible outlet from Prime Time TV to Periscope. My practicality keeps the focus firmly on the business impact and not on flashy industry awards. My innovative nature breeds solutions beyond typical advertising. My favorite professional achievements include inventing the famous, and impactful Domino’s Pizza Tracker as well as my personal viral initiative to curb distracted driving known as Red Thumb Reminder. I reside with my family just outside beautiful Boulder, Colorado where you can find me hanging with the kids, cycling, hiking and snowboarding.

Steve is among the most talented creative directors with whom I've ever worked. Not only is he able to shift gears quickly, and remain focus ... ed on the business challenge his creative concepts will solve, he's incredibly collaborative and grounded. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone looking for a Creative Director who brings integrated chops, an always-fresh perspective and all-around-good guy.
Steve Driggs
We worked together  •  President, GumCo. Previously Executive Creative Director/Partner, Struck.
Steve stands among the highest level of advertising talent in the country. He's brimming with energy and innovation. He bravely pioneers ne ... w ideas as well as new technologies. He's been a highly successful creative, creative director, president and now entrepreneur. I have no doubt that this new agency will make a profound mark in the advertising world. But more than any of that, he's genuine, he's passionate and a truly stand-up guy. Go Steve!

Steven Erich
We worked together  •  Previously President / Partner, Crispin Porter + Bogusky. Previously Managing Director / Partner, Crispin Porter + Bogusky.
I had the profound pleasure of working with Steve at Crispin, Porter + Bogusky for several years. I was constantly impressed with his human ... approach to the business. He was easily the smartest guy in every room, but also humble enough that he never went out of his way to make sure you knew it. Steve is a natural leader, mentor and advisor. He understands the power that comes from empowering others. His leadership is thoughtful, honest and sincere. Above all, his track record speaks for itself. Which is good for Steve, considering he's too modest to tell you himself.
