I knew it was going to take a very special person to fill Bohlsen Group’s creative director role. And, after an intensive six-month search, I feel we’ve hit the jackpot!
David Cordell is not only a talented web designer, creative services manager and art director, but he has an entrepreneurial attitude that will be instrumental as he builds Bohlsen Group’s creative services division.
David graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Indiana State University in 1997, and then joined Williams Randall in Indianapolis as a web designer and later as an art director. He worked there for the majority of the past 20 years, directing design and development for web and print projects.
David was instrumental in working on many high-profile client accounts, including: AAA, Clabber Girl, Firestone, Holiday World, ICVA, Indiana Department of Tourism, IPL, IndyCar Series, Harrison College, Mike’s Carwash, Pop Weaver and NCAA. His work was the recipient of ADDY awards from the American Advertising Federation in 2007, 2009 and 2013.
Besides David’s obvious ability to produce award-winning marketing solutions that involve design, web, advertising, packaging, environmental branding, television, radio, video and more, he has vast experience in managing internal and external resources and procuring and managing vendors.
When I met David I knew he’d fit right in. I introduced him to the staff as “spirited, fun, funny and kind”.
I’ve gotten to know him a bit more, and I think I’m right.
You might find him starting the day with a balanced diet of fruit in the form of a strawberry pop tart, while he hits some garage sales looking for vintage toys or napkins for his collections.
He may or may not work out, depending on whether he plans to eat greasy food or chocolate that day. If he does work out, he is likely listening to the “Comedy Bang Bang” podcast.
He will drive at least one of his three kids (Isabella, Roman or Hudson) to a daily activity, especially if it is an excuse for getting out of mowing the lawn.
And, he will likely end the day alongside his beautiful wife with a bit of Netflix, NFL or pro soccer, while having a glass of wine.
