Amy Elkin

President + Chief Creative Officer

After getting her degree in Communication Arts & Design from Virginia Commonwealth University, Amy spent the first 20 years of her career at The Martin Agency, one of the country’s top advertising agencies. She began with a teensy little project: designing Coca-Cola’s very first website. From there, she helped many Fortune 500 companies build their digital brand presence. Armed with this finely honed digital prowess, Amy entered the general creative department to bring digital sensibilities and modern creativity to all media — broadcast, print, digital, and more.


Over the years, Amy created many award-winning integrated campaigns for clients including UPS, Hanes, Barely There, Walmart, Moen, Newseum and others. She received awards from The One Show, NY Art Directors Club, Communication Arts, Kelly Awards, Obie Awards and more. And her most treasured recognition was from The Martin Agency in 2009, when she received the “creative excellence”  Cobblestone award from Mike Hughes. Amy’s work has also been featured in The New York Times, Fast Company, The Wall Street Journal, Ad Age, E!, and even The Ellen Degeneres Show.


In 2015, Amy began teaching at VCU Brandcenter, where she continues to adjunct today. She also helped add a little more season to a young, female-led marketing firm. Today, Amy is leading her own creative & strategic services company as she continues to inspire and grow others — people, brands, and companies.
