Hello.
My name is Chris Newman, allow me introduce myself.

I’m an award-winning, energetic leader with a clean design aesthetic and highly strategic conceptual thinking. I’ve worked on high-profile brands including: NIVEA, Walgreens Boots Alliance, Kraft, EFFEN Vodka, Pfizer, Sunovion, and Johnson & Johnson.

I’ve been fortunate enough to work in both general advertising and pharmaceutical advertising producing print, broadcast, digital, social, OOH, experiential, and direct mail.

My work has garnered accolades including: Clio Healthcare, The Creative Floor Awards, Global Awards, DTC National, John Caples International Awards and the International ECHO Awards. I am proud to have been recognized by Direct Marketing News in their annual “30 under 30” award.

Travel is my jam. I’ve run 2 marathons. And I know how to tap dance – my secret weapon in tough client meetings.
