We’ve worked together and separately at other ad agencies. We teamed up because we knew that, with our combined skills and talents, we could provide unique solutions to our clients without the cumbersome layers of bigger shops.
Here’s a little more about each of us.
Founder, Account Director
William will not take you golfing and he’s unlikely to wine and dine you. Instead, he rolls up his sleeves and gets to work. William collaborates with our clients to ensure that all Favorite Nephew projects successfully achieve their strategic objectives. He digs deep to gain a complete understanding of a client’s business and their marketing strategy. Then, he manages the day-to-day tasks with that big picture in mind. He’s worked with clients in a wealth of business categories such as athletic apparel, beer, cleantech, MLM, nonprofit, pharmaceutical, QSR (fast food,) retail, software, telecommunications and video games. Some of these clients include: adidas, AOL Instant Messenger (AIM,) AOL, AT&T Wireless, Coors Brewing Company, Dockers, Moviefone, Sega, Sprint PCS and Taco Bell.
Founder, Creative Director
Ariel knows that most people don’t want to be marketed to. She approaches every project as an opportunity to win over audiences with creative work that engages and inspires. Ariel steers our creative process with an unbridled enthusiasm for finding the right concept and execution for the challenge at hand. She’s a rare breed of creative who not only makes breakthrough work but also ensures that it meets the strategic objectives. Prior to co-founding Favorite Nephew she created successful campaigns for happy clients including AOL AIM, Current TV, Jamba Juice, Moviefone, Scion and Tech TV.
