George Diefenbach, Executive Creative Director, proves to be Creative Image's man of many talents. Art director, designer, programmer and musician -- blending all to run a rather disciplinary art department (especially during his pre-coffee phase). Better known as the Count of Creative Image for his gentlemanly manner and monochromatic wardrobe, George brings an element of mystique to the table. But this Count is also a skillful algorithmic thinker. Really, "algorithmic" cannot be stressed enough. As a structured artist, we are pretty sure if we were to dissect his brain, a wave of obscure geometric style would come pouring out -- having the chaotic appeal of a Miro piece, with the organization of Escher and the mechanical texture of Giger… with a few 8 bit pixels left over from his ATARI 2600 days thrown in for kicks.
With tactics and experience gained from working with hundreds of marketing professionals over the past 25 years, Creative Image’s producer and resident funny guy, Frank Russo learned first-hand the challenges that these marketers face. Frank understands that marketing is an investment – not an expense – and that every dollar invested must return a value greater than that dollar. Confident there was a better way to improve his client’s bottom line, he created the "Conversion Beast" concept to help clients meet the demands of a competitive marketplace and adhere to tight deadlines and lean budgets. When he's not concocting impressive imaginative monsters, Frank can be found playing Iron Maiden solos on his air guitar and downing sugar-free Red Bulls like precious water.
To cut his design chops; John Cook attended The School of Visual Arts, in NYC. But, John’s considerable talent for design is not the only thing that defines him. Along with meticulous design skills, he also thrives at writing code, and considers HTML, Java Script, etc. as the ultimate canvas for many of his designs. With stealth-like focus, John helps Creative Image create memorable branded communications. In fact, he is so locked in at work, you could drop a bomb next to John and he wouldn’t stop defining pixels. What does grab his attention? Ask him, he just may whisper an answer. At home, John’s into classic rock music and creating animated shorts, which we find funny, cause at work he’s so unanimated and laid back.
