What are we thankful for this year? This guy! Meet our new Executive Creative Director, Kris Blake.
Kris is an award-winning creative with more than 15 years of experience in branding, strategy, campaign development, and copywriting. He brings to [ 2 one 5 ] Creative a dynamic portfolio of work in a variety of categories including financial services, sports and entertainment, healthcare, higher education, the non-profit sector, and food and beverage.
At [ 2 one 5 ] Creative, Kris will take on a pretty hefty task: as ECD, he’ll be responsible for setting the agency’s artistic direction as we continue to expand our client roster of global and national lifestyle brands, and nurturing our fast-growing stable of talent.
“Kris is just the person we need to run the show on the creative side as our team continues to push our industry’s limits,” said Nik Greenblatt, Founder and President of [ 2 one 5 ] Creative. “We aim to defy the standard in everything we do, and adding Kris to the team completes the puzzle for us. In the short time he’s been here, we’ve already begun to elevate our campaigns, and look forward to amping things up even more in 2019.”
As a proud Norristown, PA native, Kris took an unconventional path to breaking into advertising: he started out in the craft beer industry before moving on to financial services marketing, earning his MBA along the way, all before getting to work on his portfolio under the tutelage of some of New York City’s best CDs at Adhouse, NYC.
“It’s a really exciting time for the agency and I’m glad to be joining the team along with several other key hires as we move into next year and beyond,” said Kris.
Kris resides in Philadelphia with his wife Stacey and their beagle mix, Bern-dawg.
