Please allow us to introduce the kind, hardworking, photogenic geniuses who will be handling your account:
Owner, Creative Services Director
As an account supervisor, Diane excels in concession rebranding, with many convention centers, arenas and stadiums around the country benefiting from her project-management skills. She was chosen as one of Oklahoma Magazine's "40 Under 40."
Owner, Account Service Director
David is an expert with clients because he’s been one. And served many. His career on both sides of the table—client and agency—has made him a quick study of what clients want and how they want issues solved.
Owner, Finance Director
Her mind is strategic. Logical. “Spreadsheet” is her native language. That’s why Angela oversees all things monetary at AcrobatAnt. A pro in the advertising, marketing and healthcare industries, she’s also one of Oklahoma Magazine’s “40 Under 40.”
Owner, Creative Director
Danny has the sharp eye of a detective and the innovative perspective of an art director. From big concepts to the tiniest kerning move, he makes sure nothing leaves this agency until it meets our clients’ needs and our own “Pure. Simple. Honest.” standards.
As a designer, Dwayne loves the “happy accidents” that happen when you look at projects from different angles and try something that originally might not have worked. He likes designing logos and illustrations and is an expert when it comes to designing tradeshow exhibits and graphics.
Keeping clients happy and accounts on track takes special skills that can be taught and certain talent that comes naturally, and Rachael has all of the above: organization, patience, friendly attitude, perseverance, excellent written and verbal communication, and unflappability. Yes, “unflappability” is a word. She checked.
The "Stay Calm and Carry On" craze was invented for Audrey. You can try to rile her, but you'll fail. Her experience with big brands—Mars Candy, Wrigley, Energizer, Dannon, Walmart and Sam's Club—prepared her for managing one of AcrobatAnt's largest healthcare accounts.
Senior Art Director
Dell has a great eye as a designer, illustrator and fine artist. His paintings of popular sports figures have brought in in as much as $11,000 for charity events. At AcrobatAnt, he's the go-to guy for coming up with the big concept, then taking it to the molecular level.
Associate Creative Director
To know Bryan is to marvel at Bryan's thinking process. His mind just works differently. You've seen his logos in multiple editions of LogoLounge; and his work has been featured in the Society of Illustrators Museum in New York and in the Directory of Illustration.
Healthcare and food: two things AcrobatAnts know a lot about, which made Madison such a natural addition to the account team for CommunityCare and Mazzio’s, among others. She joined us in 2018, bringing two years of healthcare-marketing experience and a passion for cooking and baking.
Since the launch of her marketing career in 1990, Tamara has seen—and deftly adapted to—the dramatic changes in media buying brought on by the digital revolution. The reason Tamara excels at the media side of advertising is the same reason she likes baking: “Two plus two always equals four.”
Heather is the welcoming face greeting visitors to the ant colony, when she’s not delivering mail, ordering supplies, and doing anything and everything asked of her. Her positive attitude is infectious, and we love having her and her assistant—a teacup Chihuahua named Rigby.
Development and distribution of digital content, including web and social media, is essential for every client, and Dana’s skills in creating and managing this content make her an essential member of every AcrobatAnt account team.
What did Donna learn from her 13 years as director of sales and marketing in the hospitality industry? How to build professional relationships, keep her customers happy and how those skills apply to a variety of industries.
To the average person, it seems like a lot of pressure to be in charge of managing relationships with clients. That’s why average people don’t become account coordinators at AcrobatAnt. Anna uses her exceptional organizational skills to ensure all deadlines are met and all creative is above par.
Thanks to Annie’s expertise, our busy design team can spend more time creating and less time resizing ads, making layout edits and getting things ready to print. These and other important tasks have been happily delegated to Annie, who has happily embraced the responsibility. Conclusion: Annie inspires happiness.
What started as a “happy accident” has turned into over 27 years in the advertising industry. Having worked at many agencies throughout his career, Matt came to AcrobatAnt for the people and the chance to do something different. A former spelling bee champion, Matt has been writing his whole life. And when he is not writing, you can find him playing the drums or guitar.
Jessica’s previous occupations include the Oklahoma City Thunder events crew and tournament organizer for the Bixby Youth Baseball Association. Now she organizes words and gives every fact a reality check, the agency’s last line of defense against any sort of inaccuracy. A lot of pressure, but she can handle it.
Someone has to do payroll, accounts receivable, accounts payable, collections, billing, forecasting and prepare financial statements. At AcrobatAnt, that's our left-brained and very sports-minded David Vavra—who always looks forward to Fantasy Football season.
Digital Services Director
Atlanta-born, Pratt Institute- and Tulane University-educated, the multi-hyphenated Ryan Watkins-Hughes leads and manages all aspects of website development, UX/UI, interactive and online presence disciplines for AcrobatAnt’s diverse client base.
