Brynn Bardacke, Global Group Creative Director at the Coca-Cola Company, will be a presenter at this year’s Portland Creative Conference on Saturday, September 17th.
Coca-Cola is consistently ranked as the top global brand by the InterBrand study each year, which is quoted widely in the trade and consumer press. The Creative Conference is an open and intimate event, so hearing from and meeting a creative director from one of the top brands in the world that sells something besides footwear and/or apparel will be a unique opportunity for Portland-area creative industries professionals who attend the Conference.
Brynn has a strong connection to the Portland area after spending four years in Nike Advertising in the 90’s. She then worked 10 years for top ad agency TBWA\Chiat\Day, working on key accounts such as Apple, Gatorade and P&G brands.
Brynn was in the Creative Conference audience in 1997 when famous ad man Lee Clow (now Chairman of TBWA\Chiat\Day, then Global Creative Director of the agency) was a presenter. Lee’s presentation greatly inspired Brynn in her career and it is a great Creative Conference story that she later went to work for his company.
