Who am I and what do I do?
[ Nobuko Nagaoka ] Art Director : : Creative Director

As a seasoned pro, Iíve spent more than 20 years helping brands build their reputations and their bottom lines. Not only do I think visually about a clientís challenge, I approach every project from a conceptual and strategic perspective. I firmly believe that creative is only as good as the results it creates. This unyielding commitment to excellence has led to numerous industry awards for creative and marketing excellence. Since 2006, Iíve been an independent Art Director/Creative Director, and have partnered with a variety of agencies to develop multi-media branding campaigns, direct marketing initiatives and company identity designs. My experience spans virtually every medium; from broadcast to interactive, print to collateral, catalogs to traditional direct marketing.

Where do I come from?

Prior to striking out on my own, I was a Creative Director at Euro/RSG where I spearheaded results-oriented work for Citi/Sears credit products, ConAgra Healthy Choice and Circuit City. Prior to that, I was VP/Managing Creative Director at FCBi where I raised the creative bar, landing numerous national and international creative awards. While there, I had the pleasure of working with Heller Financial, Circuit City, John Deere, Kraft and Quaker. Before joining FCBi, I was Associate Creative Director at Leo Burnett USA. My accounts included Allstate, Oldsmobile, United Airlines, Kelloggís, Hallmark, Walt Disney World, Proctor and Gamble and Ameritech. I would like the opportunity to partner with your team, and to take your company to the next level.
