Geordie Stephens non-traditional approach to advertising started in 1994 after he completed a BA and MFA in sculpture, installation art and graphic design. During his 12-year tenure in the advertising world he worked as a graphic designer, art director and creative director, namely at Crispin Porter + Bogusky where he spent three years working on virtually every account.
Geordie’s fresh and often unorthodox work for such clients as Burger King, Virgin Atlantic Airlines, Mini Cooper, IKEA, Budweiser, Truth, Sprite and VW has been frequently praised by both the press and a variety of international award shows. His public service-esque approach on Maxim’s Endangered Man was hailed as one of 2005’s most unique campaigns and his interactive work on VW was awarded the Interactive Grand Clio in 2006.
Geordie joined Tool in 2006 with the hope of bringing his non-traditional creative philosophy to commercial directing.
