Brunner Expands Digital Creative Team
Pittsburgh – September 18, 2012 – Independent, full-service advertising agency, Brunner (www.brunnerworks.com), named Lindy Gross as vice president, digital creative director and Flav Rosati as senior digital art director.
An industry veteran with more than 20 years of experience, Lindy oversees digital creative agency-wide. Prior to joining Brunner, Lindy was group creative director at Moxie Interactive in Atlanta, where she led her team to create “awesome digital goodness” (her own words) for clients, such as Coca-Cola, Garnier, Home Depot, Maybelline, Minute Maid, Nestea, and Hewlett-Packard. While at Red Tettemer in Philadelphia, Lindy was senior writer for various clients, including Comcast, Pennsylvania Tourism, Fox Channel networks, and Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey.
"Most people are brought up in digital shops or traditional media shops. Lindy has experience in both, which gives her a unique perspective,” said Rob Schapiro, Brunner executive creative director/content. “Her work begins and ends with an engaging idea, and just as important, she knows how to optimize it in whatever channels consumers are seeking out.”
In 2011, she launched www.hellolindy.com, the “advertising site of Lindy.” Through the site, she has worked as a creative consultant for brands including CURE Childhood Cancer, youthSpark, and Big Nerd Ranch. A graduate of the Creative Circus, Lindy’s work has been recognized by the National Addy’s and the One Show and has been featured in AdWeek and Creativity.
With more than a decade of experience in the industry, Flav has worked with a number of premier agencies, including Marcus Thomas, the Omnicom Group, Hitchcock Fleming & Associates, and American Greetings Interactive. Most recently, he was senior digital creative director at Pittsburgh, PA – based Smith Brothers.
“Flav has a passion for design and how it impacts the user experience,” said Jay Giesen, Brunner executive creative director/visual arts. “We are very excited to have him here. He is already helping us help several of our clients improve their presence on the web.”
With a background in both creative and digital, Flav has had the opportunity to work with numerous well-known brands, including Hot Pockets, Nesquik, Nestlé Waters, Stouffer’s, Ovaltine, Smucker’s, Pfizer, Goodyear, Jamba Juice, and VIAGRA.
