Tim Hogan, VP, Executive Creative Director

Clients love working with Tim because of his collaborative approach to delivering the best creative solutions. They never get creative just for creative’s sake. It’s always based on consumer insights with a strategic goal in mind.

He’s applied this method across a broad range of brands and industries. His curiosity and passion for the process drives him to bring a fresh perspective to every project. Tim’s creativity drives our teams at all levels. Nothing is too big or too small to capture his imagination.

Tim won his first Addy for an outdoor board penned at age 15. Throughout his career, peers have continued to recognize his award-winning creativity. He’s helped premium brands like Maker’s Mark Bourbon and Bush’s Baked Beans grow from regional brands to national prominence. As the creative leader at Brandience, he brings that experience to bear for all our clients.

Outside of work, he’s a family guy with a wife and two daughters who share his passion for music. Ask him what it was like to be a rock and roll DJ for a 100,000-watt radio station and he’ll share a few stories about spinning vinyl for North Carolina’s Best Rock. Spend a little time with Tim and you’ll feel his infectious sense of humor. He’ll always leave you smiling.


Some think data restricts the right brain, but for us it inspires confidence to explore bigger, bolder ideas for our clients.
