BIO

Brian Thibodeau

I'm an entrepreneurial creative leader looking for long-term (or short-term) contract work as a CREATIVE DIRECTOR for an outstanding firm who wants to make world-class advertising. Whether I'm in the trenches designing and art directing or managing creative teams, I'm invested in making memorable communications that work for our clients.

I'm schooled at the VCU Brandcenter (2008 grad) and have since worked at several distinguished agencies including The Martin Agency, Ogilvy, McGarryBowen, TBWA\CHIAT\DAY, The Richards Group, Momentum Worldwide, Arc Worldwide, Cutwater and others creating work across every media channel known to advertising.

I've also served as a fractional design director and creative director on numerous client-side brands.

In addition to continued freelancing, I founded Modenª Advert Arts Collective in 2022 to help smaller agencies win bigger clients as well as augment internal marketing teams with big-impact thinking.

Most recently I'm being certified as a Storybrand™ Marketing Coach where I will work with small to mid-sized brands to establish their voice and gain quicker success.

I'm also a multidisciplinary artist creating everything from paintings, to illustration, caricatures and storyboards. I self-published a book called Quarantined Portraits amidst Covid19 2020, where I painted and interviewed other creatives and artists all over the globe from a remote location. I'm a father of 5, husband to one. We live in the woods with our three cats, two dogs, two birds and one lizard.
