I'm John Beattie. Thanks for looking at my work. I am concept and design driven and consider myself to be media agnostic. It doesn't matter if it's a brochure or post card, direct mail or magazine ad, website or banner ad — a strong concept and design that are dead-on strategically, with visuals that make a lasting impression, are essential. I've spent over twenty years in the advertising business as an art, design and creative director on national and regional accounts. I started my career as the first art director hired for a very small agency (12 people, including myself) and helped that little shop grow to over a hundred people strong and threaten the largest global agency in the world for a major national account within three years. Over the years, I've grabbed awards from MOBIUS, IAAA, CADDY, ADDY and International Graphic Arts and have received kudos from Advertising Age Creativity, Graphic Arts Annual and more. If you're looking for solid concepts, strong design and killer visuals, let's talk.
