Ant Q&A: Bryan Cooper
Associate Creative Director
How would you describe your job?
When you break my job down to its basics, I’m taking a thought from one human and translating it into something visually compelling enough to get the attention of another human.
What inspires you?
Evel Knievel, vintage photography, Cracker Jack toys and working with people who know how to turn work into fun.
What creative projects do you pursue outside of agency work?
My favorite medium is clay. There’s something primal about working with clay that you can’t quite get with other mediums. One of the reasons I love it is because there are no tools: just you, your hands and the clay, and it gets messy.
What other creative talents do you have?
I also love photography. If I’m not shooting photos of family or friends, I’m shooting small clay figures that I create. You can check it out at BCillustography.com.
Why did you get into advertising?
I was in a band and needed a secondary job that would allow me to keep my long hair. Advertising fit the bill. It turns out that my favorite part of being in a band was designing our T-shirts and CD covers. So, I quit my band, cut my hair and joined the advertising world. But I still think about growing my hair back out.
