Hello.

 

I’m Ryan O’Keefe, a creative director / copywriter believing in the power of big ideas brought to life with simple words and stunning visuals.

Over the years, I have worked with creative shops like Grey, Sid Lee, Hudson Rouge, R/GA, Rokkan, Publicis and Firstborn across a myriad of iconic brands including Apple, Volvo, Absolut Elyx, The Lincoln Motor Company, Crown Royal, Stella Artois, and Cadillac.

Before advertising, I wrote for the internet. Long before that, I designed cars for Detroit. Longer yet, I was a baby.
