Hello, blog world
My name is Stacey and I am the â€œnewbâ€ here at The Creative Department.Â My role is Brand Coordinator and simply, I help manage clientsâ€™ accounts.Â I become the expert on the clientâ€™s business, an active participant in strategy development, and I maintain the relationship between the client and the agency. Besides working at CD, I enjoy riding my bike through town, eating my fruits and vegetables, and hanging out with my scrappy cats Frankie and Bonnie.
How did I get here?Â
I am a proud graduate of Northern Kentucky University where I studied abroad in England while also traveling to France, Scotland, and Ireland.Â Iâ€™ve worked in quite a few marketing departments from local public radio station WNKU 89.7, to one of the Nationâ€™s top zoos (yes, the Cincinnati Zoo), to The Princeton Review in Irvine, CA.Â I was introduced to The Creative Department through a friend and former manager whom Iâ€™m forever grateful for.
I remember driving my airconditionless Sebring (AKA the â€œMichael Scott Mobileâ€) to Over the Rhine on a scorching August day for my first visit with The Creative Department.Â Stepping inside was a breath of fresh air (literally) and one of the coolest office spaces I had ever seen.Â First of all, the lobby welcomed me with a bathtub turned coffee table (AKA The Tubble), a telephone booth complete with a superman costume, and an antique elevator the size of my bathroom.Â After lunch, my tour of the office followed with brightly colored paint, neon signs, and delightfully, quirky dÃ©cor.
As for the employees and my future co-workers – just as quirky as the dÃ©cor and as witty as their advertising.Â I was in love.Â I had known the people and the space for a mere hour and a half, but already felt oddly comfortable.
It was nice â€œmeetingâ€ you
Iâ€™ve been here a little over four months and am still ecstatic that The Creative Department has so warmly welcomed me to their team â€“ I think Iâ€™ll stick around for a while.Â Look for my next post about ProKids, my first client and CDâ€™s 2012 pro bono client.
