(Chicago — 1 October 2018) Social Deviant, the Chicago-based, full-service creative agency for modern brands, has promoted Nickolas Daniel to Creative Director, effective immediately.
Daniel has assumed the creative lead on the CareerBuilder account, which Social Deviant won following an informal review in May 2018.
Daniel originally joined Social Deviant in October 2017 as an Associate Creative Director, and has since applied his creative talents to a range of clients, including Red Wing Shoes, The Disney Channel, MillerCoors, Catalina, and the agency’s most recent new business win: Columbia College Chicago.
Prior to Social Deviant, Daniel helped open the Detroit office for Huge, where he worked on Fiat Chrysler, Chase Private Client, Maserati, Meijer, and Nokia Health as a Senior Copywriter.
In that same role at Geometry Global, his client remit included Mondelez, Colgate-Palmolive, E&J Gallo Winery and GlaxoSmithKline. While at ARC/Leo Burnett Worldwide, his clients included Procter & Gamble and Kellogg.
Daniel began his ad career at Walgreens as a Digital Copywriter and has since won nearly a dozen creative honors, including Effies, Reggies, Webby and Pro Awards.
“Nick is hyper-collaborative — taking feedback well and acting upon it — which makes him a world-class client partner,” said Marc Landsberg, CEO and founder of Social Deviant. “He’s exactly our kind of creative in that he parks his ego at the door and is relentless about getting to great work. Plus, as a Second City Training Center graduate, improviser and comedian who’s written and performed at comedy venues across Chicago, Los Angeles and Detroit, he’s quick on his feet and keeps us all laughing.”
Social Deviant is projecting to nearly double revenue in 2018, adding new business from The Disney Channel, CareerBuilder, Hanna Andersson, Columbia College Chicago and the National Restaurant Association Show, with more prospects in the pipeline.
