Ant Q&A: Dana Jacobs

Dana Jacobs Digital Producer Describe your role as digital producer and its importance to clients. As a digital producer, I handle all things social media. Depending on the client, that includes writing copy, shooting and selecting photography, creating graphics, planning and executing ad campaigns, responding to customers and reporting analytics. How has previous career and/or academic experience prepared you for your work here? In my first job out of college, as a marketing coordinator, I had the opportunity to learn how to use the Adobe Creative Suite and gain a working knowledge of the different programs. In my second job,... Read More

Ant Q&A: Audrey Chambers

Audrey Chambers Account Supervisor Trace your work history leading up to your employment at AcrobatAnt. I started working when I was 15 years old and really haven’t stopped. After graduating from Oklahoma State University, I accepted a position in Human Resources at the Walmart home office in Bentonville, Arkansas. I later moved to Recruiting and ended my time there in Marketing. It was an amazing learning experience, but I knew I didn’t want to stay there forever, so I took a job as an advertising agency account director and stayed there for a few years. I was in northwest Arkansas... Read More

Ant Q&A: Matt O’Meilia

  Matt O’Meilia Senior Copywriter How would you describe your job? My job is fast-paced, demanding and challenging. On any given day, I change gears frequently to adjust to the unique brand personality of each client. So, there’s a lot of variety, both in the types of clients and the things each client needs: ads, brochures, web copy, direct mail, TV and radio copy, short copy, long copy, clever copy, serious copy. Whatever it is, about 99 percent of the time it is HOT copy. What projects/activities do you pursue outside of agency work? I play drums in a couple... Read More

Ant Q&A: Dell Chambers

Dell Chambers Senior Art Director How long have you worked at AcrobatAnt? Six wonderful years. How would you describe your job? Challenging, interesting and ever-evolving. I take input from clients and come up with a compelling and clean design to achieve their goals. It’s kind of like a puzzle, figuring out what goes where, and it’s very rewarding to see the final picture come together. What projects and activities do you pursue outside of agency work? Painting is something I thoroughly enjoy, along with trying new foods and health/fitness. Some employees have actually hired me to do their weekly lunches;... Read More

Ant Q&A: Donna Keffer

  Donna Keffer Account Manager How would you describe your job? Relationship Builder. My job is to make sure my clients are happy and help them look good by reaching their goals. I try to know as much as possible about them and their business as possible. I manage Mountain States Hospital System and St. Luke’s Health System, which both do things very differently. It is challenging and fun to find ways to manage those unique relationships and keep both clients happy—both with me and the work that we create on their behalf. What inspires you? Giving back. Empathy. I... Read More

Ant Q&A: Bryan Cooper

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... Read More

Graphic Artist has a flair for sports

With college football right around the corner, we thought it only fitting to mention the newest member of the Ant Farm, our resident Fantasy Football organizer,  Dell Chambers. Dell is a native Tulsan who like many from this great state played sports for most of his life. His love of sports growing up was coupled by his love of visual arts, leading him to earn a degree in graphic arts. With a unique sense of what makes an athlete great, Dell transforms his strong attention to detail and insight into amazing hand-illustrated portraits. Recently, Dell donated his work to The...

Acrobatic… Ants

All of us here at AcrobatAnt like to think we have a little ‘Acrobat’ in us. Compare us to these acrobat skills and traits and see for yourself. Flexibility – Acrobats can put their feet behind their heads – so what?! We can ramp up a new project or halt one in a moment’s notice.  We can meet on the client’s terms – in person, online, via email or phone. Each client manager prides themselves on managing projects in a way that each unique client would expect. Grip – Acrobats seem to have pretty good ‘grip’ – they can grab... Read More
