John Shanley

I strive to create relevant content that resonates with its intended audience; work that is grounded in a strategically-creative foundation fostered from years at full-service agencies. I’ve worked in digital, broadcast, print, direct, and out of home; B2C and B2B. Mentoring through smart, strategic thinking and allowing ideation to blossom is both a joy and an obsession. I pride myself on inspiring my teams to do the best work they can, and on developing trusting relationships with clients, which is often necessary in selling through great work.

It has to start with an exceptional idea. Brilliant execution makes it stand out and sing. Smart placement leads to shares, engagement and revisits. Together, these tell a story, advance a behavior, and create a relevant experience, but it all starts with that idea.
