Don’t take my word for it. Here’s what some amazing people have to say.
Too often brands fall into playing to category norms. The work Marc created for us was anything but. He and his team created brilliant ads that sliced through the clutter of the category. It was work that worked, won creative awards here in Canada, but also was grabbed and used by Unilever colleagues in markets around the world.
Marc is creatively brilliant, with an impressive mastery of storytelling and influencing listeners. He takes difficult concepts that I've seen startup founders/CEOs struggle with for years, and expresses them in colorful sound bites that engage and captivate.
Marc is in a league of his own when it comes to articulating a brand message that actually reflects the company's core thinking. He creates the bridge between what the company wants to say, and what the customer can actually hear.
Marc can lead and collaborate seamlessly, bringing to life a portfolio that our team was proud to share with clients as a sales tool.
Marc is able to combine wild, off-the-wall creativity with a business-like perspective on the "thrill of the hunt" and the ultimate point that all advertising creative is in the service of selling more product.
The creative energy and strategic thinking Marc brought to all aspects of the process was outstanding, as was his ability to take huge amounts of information and boil it down into impactful, elegant points.
Marc was one of the most strategic and prolific creative directors I've ever worked with. The campaign we launched broke through the cluttered financial services comms landscape - resulting in significant gains.
