Kevin Flatt

Chicago, IL, USA
Breaking out of a category norm, innovating with new technology, simplifying complexity and purifying purpose are what excites Kevin.

A design-centric thinker, he is always looking to find new ways to communicate compelling ideas and create new experiences that make fans of his client's brands. He has worked at some of the industry's top shops on many of the world's top brands.

As a creative leader, Kevin harnesses the most powerful, creative thinking from diverse talent to generate the most compelling brand experiences. He has built teams for companies needing new skills, rebuilt teams for better creative performance, and mentored young talent to greater success.

An active member of the community, he has spoken at a number of industry conferences, including SXSW and Cannes. He's judged for the One Show, Cannes, Communication Arts and other notable industry competitions. And he is on the advisory board for the Creative Circus in Atlanta.
