Piper Hickman / Executive Creative Director


Hi there.

My favorite color is yellow. I love dogs. I'm shorter than you might expect.

In work, I excel in environments ripe for change and a shake up. I thrive on solving both internal and external problems, creating work that resonates and helping younger creatives grow. I'm not above getting into a deck to make the work better — nor am I shy about getting into a room and selling a campaign to a C-suite client. Part perpetual-teenager, part adult in the room; this is who I am and what I bring to the ad industry table.

I asked my friend Hilary to describe me and here's what she said: "When you enter the room, the wry hilarity factor increases by 10. An unexpected topic or experience is raised - almost always some insane 100% true shit - and you can be damn sure it wouldn’t have been said at all if you weren’t there. Outrageous truth is then whipped into comic submission. No story is off limits and nobody leaves the room until the protagonist puts the world into its proper place. Also, usually good shoes are on display."
