Danny Robinson

Remember when Oprah gave away 276 Pontiac G6s? So does Danny. He was a big part
of that history-making brand integration. But then again, Danny has always thought big.
Both in his highly awarded advertising career, as well as in his highly secret hobby.
(Shhhh, he is an amazing painter!)

As chief client officer, Danny is uniquely qualified to work with account management
and creative to protect and sell stimulating, breakthrough creative ideas that fight brand
invisibility and help create opportunities for success through cultural influence.

After all, you don’t meet many group creative directors who have an MBA, have worked
in brand management and have founded their own ad agency known for leveraging pop
culture. In addition to being a cofounder of Vigilante, Danny was the creative leader and
writer there behind award-winning campaigns for Sprint, Major League Baseball, Snapple,
Heineken, Pontiac, and advertising and event business for Johnnie Walker Black Label.
He also wrote and art directed the first television commercials for Jay-Z and Foxy Brown,
just to name a few.

And as GCD at The Martin Agency, Danny led the biggest new business win in the
company’s history — Walmart. He has also applied his sharp wit and strategic mind to
brands like Pizza Hut, Hanes, Tic Tac, Chevrolet and OREO. And if you play your cards
right, maybe he’ll paint your portrait!
