I\'m John Biondi. I\'ve happily been a Director / Designer in Minneapolis, MN since 1999. Since then, I\'ve learned to be an effective creative leader and how to build and nurture a creative team. I pride myself on bringing conceptual, big-thinking (Ã la \'old-school\' advertising) to bear in digital work as well. I\'m big on the word \"delight\". My essential goal is always to delight the audience/s.
At Atomic Playpen, I was responsible for the agency\'s award-winning work from 2004 - 2010. I helped grow the agency from 13 to 50 people while establishing it as part of an elite group of digitally-focused agencies in the region. I have broad and deep experience developing campaigns, promotions and brands, with a digital bent, for high-profile accounts like Target, 3M, Mayo Clinic, Larsen Boats & Anheuser-Busch.
Leading & Inspiring cross-disciplinary teams (including creative, UX & digital strategy) is something I am accustomed to and enjoy. Working in and helping to create an environment wherein brave & unexpected work not only gets created (Creatives: \"Ta-da!\"), but gets produced (Client: \"I\'ll take it!\") is extremely important to me. I think it\'s everyone at the agencies job to work toward that goal.
My work has been recognized locally and nationally from publications including Communication Arts, HOW and Forbes, as well as respected industry competitions, including The One Show, Adobe Systems’ Site of the Day & the Addy Awards. I am asked to speak at industry events, colleges & universities regularly, something that I consider to be both a pleasure and an honor.
I am presently accepting opportunities from advertising agencies, design studios and directly from corporate clients.
